Narvar

If you're not on a platform that has a branded post-purchase landing page or in-email estimated delivery date script, Narvar provides this experience. It's a nice-to-have for any brand that wants to provide a seamless, branded shopping experience for their customers. Narvar's grown rapidly and it seems they are increasing costs, which may be prohibitive and hard to justify for smaller companies.

Hybris fits well into a large development organization and will need many disciplines to fully leverage. It should fit very well into SAP heavy environments and recent roadmaps indicate a tighter and tighter integration in the future. It would be a challenge for a smaller shop to cultivate the kind of knowledge diversity necessary. Getting the initial momentum may also be a challenge if you do not have a good implementation partner, at least in the early stages.

Pros

Narvar

  • Narvar offered us a turn-key solution that we had up and running in less than a month.
  • Narvar offered several out of the box widgets (solutions) to help build/customize content (calendar view, milestone icons, SMS messaging and personalize content based on items purchased).
  • Narvar's solution is scalable/expandable to include returns (once we are ready).

  • Large scale product and user data management.
  • Out of the box support for common eCommerce functionality.
  • Robust platform that is supported well and consistently by the Hybris team who are available for direct support if needed.
  • Integrates well with other services if Hybris does not meet all business needs.
  • Localization for multi-national support was easy to implement.

Cons

Narvar

  • Client success proactively providing metrics & “checking in” with clients; not just when there’s an issue.

SAP Commerce Cloud (formerly SAP Hybris)

  • CMS Cockpit is slow and inefficient for performing certain kinds of content management and template manipulation tasks. I often defer to the HMC, but this is not a feasible option for our client's content management team.
  • The OOTB UI code that ships with v5.0.1 is several years behind industry standard front end technology. v5.1 shows no promise of significant improvements in this arena. Some things I'd like to see: Dropping the Blueprint framework in favor of something Like Bootstrap, Less Framework or AngularJS. Jquery and key dependent plug-ins need to be upgraded and large, over-featured plugins like JQuery UI abandoned. SASS + Compass should replace static CSS. Granule should be dropped in favor of better tools for JS dependency management, code minification, and file concatenation.
  • Maintaining independent codebases for Desktop and Mobile views increases UI development hours by a margin of 30-50%. Natively supporting the option to configure a responsive design with a framework such as AngularJS would offer flexibility to serve up content and site chrome targeted at a wider range of device classes than just desktop machines and mobile phones.

Figuring out the CMS tools took some time. Supporting documentation is sparse.I also found the tools to be slow at times, making simple template edits an arduous process.

Once it's set up, it doesn't require much support. We used to have quarterly or bi-annual touch bases with an account person to review our rating and customer usage but haven't heard from them in a while - either because we're too small or they got rid of this interaction. Can't say we miss it though because we can see our rating and feedback, and there is only so much you can do within the confines of the platform without adding on new functionality.

I give this an 8 instead of a 10 because in hindsight, while I am extremely happy with the platform and the things I've learned through my exposure to it, I also see so many areas for improvement in the outcome of my efforts. My advice to front end developers working with Hybris and/or the Java stack for the first time, is to not be intimidated by it. Question everything. Trust your intuition. Do not be afraid to refactor or completely replace something that appears integral to the platform if you see a clear benefit to doing so. It's much less far reaching than you think and the core system will not come crumbling to its knees if you make broad sweeping alterations. In fact, the energy you will expend to retool your site with a new framework will grow in tandem with the amount of time you spend hesitating, and at some point may become critical enough to force your hand while simultaneously becoming risky enough to destabilize your entire project delivery. If you don't like JQuery UI, punt it. If you don't care for the Blueprint CSS framework, burn it down. Making the strategic decision to adopt the toolset that best fits your organization from the very beginning will pay off in spades.

Alternatives Considered

Narvar

At the time, Narvar had no other competitors to my knowledge. We looked at building this functionality in house which had a 3 month estimate. Everyone involved happily welcomed the tool.

Hybris is a massive enterprise-grade system that is built for scale. If your business has <1000 SKUs in the catalog and lacks a large full-stack +java e-commerce dev team, stick to a lighter, more agile solution. Hybris is a nuclear aircraft carrier, and it will take a lot of people, fuel and time to turn that ship.
