Acquia, hybris Partner on Cloud-Based Digital Experiences [June 30, 2015]
By Dom Nicastro
SAP hybris introduced hybris-as-a-service (YaaS) as a commerce platform based on microservices at its Global Customer Days and Partner Summit in February. It was the talk of the conference, according to reports. (We'll spare you the tweets claiming "The answer is Yaas.")
Acquia is now joining the conversation.
The Boston-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company, which provides products, services and support for open-source web content management platform Drupal, and hybris, the Munich-based e-commerce solutions provider under the SAP hood, partnered today. The goal: to help brands “deliver contextually relevant digital experiences via the cloud.”
Acquia and hybris, which SAP acquired in 2013 to strengthen its position in the e-commerce space, contend companies are moving away from legacy “software as a product” that include “inflexible delivery models.”
The partnership will produce an alternative, officials promised: “cloud-based microservices” that help organizations produce digital experiences as easily as downloading apps to a smartphone.
