I realize I’ve been far quieter with respect to blogging than I had intended. As I get ready to head off on another trip (because 101.5K miles flown this year isn’t enough), my long layover at Chicago O’Hare gave me a chance to reflect on just how fast the last few months have gone since Sitecore acquired Commerce Server last year.
Sitecore Commerce is a comprehensive product portfolio aimed at providing a commerce solution for all enterprise needs. It is much broader in charter and scope than Commerce Server ever was, as what I had been working on constitutes just a component in the overall strategy. But, the sheer amount of work to get integrated and getting this to market has obviously required a considerable amount of time, focus, and cone of corporate silence.
It’s been a phenomenal journey. And with the product and strategy now in-market, the proverbial cone of silence can be lifted. So expect to see a bit more on here.
And, for a recap:
