SAP Commerce Cloud (formerly SAP Hybris)

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

SAP Commerce Cloud (formerly SAP Hybris)

  • 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.

  • Nexternal's customer service is the best in the business. Each account comes with a dedicated account rep who answers the phone when you call, and personally replies to your emails within a very reasonable time - sometimes within minutes!
  • Nexternal is consistently improving their platform with added tools and 3rd party integrations for everything from social sharing and email campaign management to search optimization tools and automatic product feed integrations such as Amazon.
  • Nexternal offers site security and PCI compliance out of the box. There is no need for an additional SSL, nor do you need to worry about the security of your clients' personal information.
  • Nexternal is scalable and grows with your business. We have more than a handful of clients who have been with Nexternal for more than 10 years. In web-speak, that's like 50 years!
  • The Nexternal shopping cart template can be customized to create a consistently branded experience from your home page throughout the entire shopping process.
  • Nexternal offers a host of API and XML toolsets that allow clients to sync data between their ecommerce platform and most any other third party platform, thereby coordinating the operations of your business and cutting down on management time.

Cons

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.

  • Nexternal needs a POS system that enables you to swipe credit cards. We switched to a different system because this was a limitation of Nexternal. At the point of purchase we used to have to write everything down and enter in later.
  • The shipping functionality is extremely basic. The shipping address check for each state never worked properly. Also, with our new system, the woman who does the compliance can pull all reports per state out of it. Nexternal does not have that capability.

I'm so happy with Nexternal I don't see myself using any other platform. We currently only use Nexternal for our web store, but we are looking to expand into the tasting rooms and offer mobile points of sale.

The SAP Commerce Cloud product has powerful content management that identifies products, catalogs, and promotions. In addition, it has a feature where inventory is tracked integrated with existing ERP (SAP and/or non-SAP) systems. With SAP Commerce Cloud, we can enable transactions to trigger all processes to integrate with existing ERP systems. In this way, it is possible to manage the system from end to end.

Nexternal has been around for over a decade - they may have defined the ecommerce admin panel. That said, they could stand to update it a bit - adding more drag and drop functionality and integrating a more comprehensive CMS allowing your home page to be part of your ecommerce website.

We have the right to open a ticket or submit request to SAP support teams for all the problems we have experienced. They also provide solutions for critical issues within 48 hours. In addition, the product has support documents such as a user guide and admin guide. In addition, there is a strong community of users. In this way, we can access solution of some specific problems that we have fallen on from there.

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.

I had help from start to finish. Doreen, my rep, was very patient, concise, clear, and she has always had the answers I need. Setting up your store is time consuming at first, but with the support system that Nexternal offers, it is painless.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Commerce Cloud (formerly SAP Hybris)

SAP is a very complex and well-put-together software and there are a plethora of platforms available. SAP Commerce Cloud was chosen as the software for our organization to use because every application can be integrated across all platforms. The training is extensive but there are so many functions and customizations that can be used it was a no-brainer to make the switch.
Jamaal Dickerson | TrustRadius Reviewer

TrueCommerce Nexternal

Nexternal is a much more basic system in terms of an OMS system but it has much more limitations compared to Submerse. Submerse however is a newer products with a ton of glitches and terrible reporting methods. If Nexternal created a POS system and revamped their shipping capabilities, I would choose Nexternal.

Return on Investment

SAP Commerce Cloud (formerly SAP Hybris)

  • Our business went through 3 major initiatives to migrate our legacy platform and data to Hybris over the course of several years with multiple tech leadership and dev teams. All 3 of these initiatives failed to launch, largely due to the complexity of the platforms and massively associated tech burdon. A 4th re-platforming succeeded in launching an MVP version with support from expensive consulting firms and to the tune of millions of dollars.
  • Due to the inflexibility of the content management features, marketing teams are severely limited and have had to seek 3rd-party software to layer on top of Hybris to deliver modern customer experiences.

TrueCommerce Nexternal

  • Because we are a development team who focuses on integrating Nexternal with our clients' sites, we can't speak to specific ROI or conversions, however, the length of time our clients stick with Nexternal says it all - in an industry where there are no shortage of choices in platforms, we have rarely ever moved a client from Nexternal to another platform. Instead, the vast majority of our clients who use Nexternal now either started off with the platform or moved to Nexternal from a less-than platform. We have clients who have been with Nexternal for over a decade, and that's really saying something.
  • In the 10+ years that we have worked with Nexternal we have developed a solid relationship that is built solely on trust. We don't get any commission for referring customers to their site, nor do they receive any commission for sending customers our way. We work together because we enjoy it and we know that the other is dependable and worthwhile.
