Why migrate from SAP Commerce Cloud to Shopify Plus?

The ecommerce industry is seeing an acceleration in retailers looking to migrate from legacy digital commerce solutions like SAP Commerce Cloud (formerly Hybris) to Shopify Plus.

Hamstrung by costly and complex development work, with extensive training often needed just for general website maintenance, these brands are prioritising scalability and agility in their search for a new ecommerce platform.

For many SAP Commerce Cloud users, a migration to Shopify Plus is a compelling proposition. Shopify is capable of powering emergent challenger brands and leading enterprises alike, offering brands increased flexibility, access to a vast app and integration ecosystem, and a reduced total cost of ownership.

Shopify is already empowering some of the biggest and most complex companies in the world to take control of their commerce stacks and drive growth at pace – something that Commerce Components by Shopify, the platform’s enterprise-only offering, will only accelerate.
