Likelihood to Recommend

Oracle ATG

I would say that Oracle ATG Web Commerce is most likely better suited for companies that have a wide selection of products online as well as a customer base that is robust enough to justify this software. We were managing several stores and so we needed this software to create an atmosphere of quick and efficient searching from customers as well as some sort of guidance for products that they would like based on their searches

PrestaShop

Prestashop offers a quick solution for companies who want a scalable solution in less time and with a low budget requirement. It's perfect for startup and pilot-projects. For example, it's very hard to put Prestashop in the middle of a multi-channel business due to security risks, difficult to exchange data from one database to another, API requests and more.

Cons

  • The schema design within ATG is poor. It does not follow accepted standards. For example, column naming is inconsistent and generalized, with multiple (unrelated) tables using column names like "ID" as primary/foreign keys. This is a barrier to an intuitive understanding of the schema. Out of the box, the schema is missing many important foreign key relationships. In fact, the publishing schema explicitly prohibits FK relationships, causing data inconsistencies when ATG's black-box algorithms fail. We've built an impressive arsenal of custom scripts specifically for handling the many exceptions and orphan conditions that arise from this design practice.
  • The job scheduler is poorly designed. It uses a database table to manage message queueing. The processes flows as follows: Messages are inserted into a table. Then, a scheduled process selects messages, applies them, updates the message row on success/failure, then goes back and looks for messages that are "complete" in order to delete them. It performs this in a serialized loop that is inefficient and heavy on database resources. There are far better ways for processing message queues than trying to leverage a database.

  • Since it starts as ready to go platform it's difficult to protect your store from being copied by someone else
  • Without a developer, you depend on Prestashop's modules marketplace that lacks free extensions
  • Since it isn't an enterprise level platform the use of Prestashop is strictly related to the size of your business

Alternatives Considered

We're married to Oracle ATG Web Commerce for the time being, and have been users for about six years now. We are slowly moving auxiliary features out of ATG and into custom in house solutions that give us purpose built, more responsive, and more appropriate functionality. Eventually, ATG will serve only core features like catalog management and order processing. All other activities will be handled externally as microservices that we control, rather than relying on the black box of ATG.

From a developer point of view Prestashop offers more than other similar platforms.

Return on Investment

  • We've been on ATG for several years so it's difficult to quantify its impact on AOV and conversion compared to other products.
  • Mobile in ATG is not the greatest. We chose to abandon ATG's native mobile offering in favor of a more flexible and fluid mobile engine built in house at less expense and requiring lower maintenance.

  • Prestashop requires a low investment, you can easily find an agency that could develop a project for less than $5,000
  • You yearly ROI should be assured
