Oracle ATG

Oracle ATG Web Commerce has its roots in older technologies and design from years ago. Over time it's been updated but shortcomings in the original design linger in the product's foundation. It is probably a good, general commerce solution for shops that don't require extensive customization of their web presence but if you find yourself needing to categorize products or offerings in "unusual" ways, or include properties that fall out of the mainstream, the burden of customization will be high.

WooCommerce is a great platform to create an inexpensive if not free online store if you have the time to learn about it and configure it well. It is especially a great online store platform if you already are experienced using Wordpress since it incorporates so well into it. There are also many great plugins to help you integrate parts of your store into your other content pieces on your WordPress website.

Pros

Oracle ATG

  • Product and SKU management
  • Product page display
Sean Scott profile photo

WooCommerce

  • Updating it is very easy because it runs on WordPress and you use WordPress' plugin update architecture.
  • There are lots of third party plugins to add whatever functionality you need. You also only install the add-ons that you need so you don't have a very bloated system.
  • There are many different payment systems that you can use with WooCommerce
  • It is easy to add new products because it uses Wordpress' editor.
  • It easily integrates with external services like print on demand services.

Cons

Oracle ATG

  • 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.

WooCommerce

  • Reliance on meta table for storing and accessing product and order data. (Coming soon)
  • Better reporting interface. (Coming soon)
  • Option to more easily choose between multi-page or single page cart/checkout.
  • Auto refresh the price totals on cart page when quantity changes using AJAX.
  • Show “-” and “+” buttons around the quantity field.
  • Show confirmation before user changes quantity to zero.

Easy to set up. Easy to use. Very low investment upfront. The investment is basically the cost of hiring someone to build the website, hosting, and any plugins necessary.

I gave it lots of points for being a simple product that instantly gives you a store. Very intuitive and simple for the client to update or implement. Loses LOTS of points when you want to do anything besides just sell stuff (coupons, etc) then it makes you pay big money for the add-ons and makes it difficult and time-intensive to develop your own.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle ATG

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.

WooCommerce

WooCommerce sits in a nice sweet spot between hosted e-commerce solutions where you have to give up some control in exchange for easy-of-use (like Shopify, Squarespace) and larger more enterprise solutions that are endlessly customizable but too complex for most merchatns needs (like Magento). I love WooCommerce because I love WordPress. There is a very large community of developers that support the core products and thousands of plugins that can extend the functionality. So if WooCommerce doesn't do exactly what you had hoped, there is a good chance you can find a free or inexpensive plug-in to make it happen

Return on Investment

Oracle ATG

  • We were able to drive sales for one of our clients up by 50% over the course of a 6 month window by revamping their online web store with Oracle ATG.
  • Sharing data and communication improved greatly between legal/finance and marketing.

  • I am still in the startup phase so I have limited experience with the ROI that I will receive.
  • It has made it possible for people with limited web design experience to set up a shopping cart.
  • It is nice to be able to set the software up with no upfront cost.
