AEM Integration with custom eCommerce engine - localisation of product info

Avatar

Level 2

Hi there,

we are in the process of rolling out a new custom eCommerce engine in conjunction with AEM. What are the best practices for localised product descriptions ? Are these considered part of PIM (system of record: eCommerce) or rather part of experience management/marketing (system of record: AEM) ?

It would be interesting to understand how this is being handled with existing eCommerce integrations such as hybris, and what the pro's and con's for either approach are.

 

Thx Nick

AEM and eCommerce is explained in this AEM doc topic: 

eCommerce

Administering hybris

There are a lot of other topics as well on this subject. 

Hope this helps

Thanks, I have already seen that, unfortunately it isn't explained there, hence the question.

Hi Monohusche,

I would be needing some more detail to answer your question for the localized product descriptions: Do you want to use the same product for multi-lingual (en,fr, jp) sites?. 

Are these considered part of PIM (system of record: eCommerce) or rather part of experience management/marketing (system of record: AEM) ?

It actually depends on how you want to design our eCommerce application. The ideal case is that you maintain all the products & catalog information in different systems, for instance hybris. And, you also keep product information on the AEM side as cache. These two systems have to be synced and for that AEM does provide a mechanism to achieve that. 

In case, you don't want to cache at the AEM side, then you have to have web services to fetch product details for every page request.

Pros : hybris is a matured platform where business gets all the basic necessities for the eCommerce application. 

Cons: I have not explored any other system. The only comparative analysis could tell us.
