In my previous article, I talked a bit about the values, capabilities and features that an e-commerce solution should entail. Considering the importance of e-commerce websites nowadays, I feel that an in-depth look at the factors that lead to a successful e-commerce solution is nothing less than necessary.

Well, that’s because technology has always seemed to have made work more efficient and convenient for the users. The corporate industry has always given in to new solutions for data management – those that make more work automatic, data secure and reports readily available.

The niche cloud service providers have long been providing ’software-as-a-service’ offerings. However, standing in the way of mass enterprise-grade adoption of such offerings have been the concerns over security, inter-operability, lack of open-standards and most importantly the inability of these offerings to provide an agile enterprise architecture – an enterprise architecture that can seamlessly integrate the 3rd party cloud offerings with in-house IT assets and can orchestrate business processes that span within and beyond the enterprise boundaries.
