Packaged Business Capabilities

Packaged Business Capabilities, or PBCs, are an assembly of functionalities that are grouped into larger clusters. All functionality should be encompassed within the PBC and no critical dependency to others should be given. Communication between the different PBCs and other systems should work based on an API infrastructure, to maximize speed and security. Compared to known Microservices, PBCs provide better governance by business users compared to costly and complex monitoring by IT experts.

Frequently Asked Questions About Digital Commerce

  • What is headless commerce?

    Headless commerce is an approach to e-commerce architecture that decouples the front-end and back-end of a web store, allowing businesses to use different technologies and tools for different parts of their e-commerce platform. This can help improve flexibility, scalability, and customization options.

    • Headless commerce separates the front-end and back-end components of an e-commerce platform.

    • Headless commerce allows businesses to provide a seamless, personalized user experience across different channels and devices.
    • This approach can help businesses stay agile and adapt to changing market needs.
  • What is composable commerce?

And with 8,000 users, as we have in the shop, that can mean a fair amount of traffic. Our shop system must be able to handle this surge in demand."
