Oracle seeks to simplify e-store creation, management with new Commerce Cloud

Pre-integrated features include payments, design templates and SEO

Continuing its effort to catch up in the cloud, Oracle has unveiled a new software-as-a-service product aimed at e-commerce providers.

Oracle's new Commerce Cloud is designed to help online businesses launch feature-rich storefronts across desktop and mobile devices in a matter of weeks.

Offered as part of the database giant's Customer Experience (CX) applications portfolio, the tool includes pre-integrated commerce features such as search and navigation, recommendations, promotions, reporting, payments, design templates and SEO, the company said Monday. Catalog, content, design and merchandising management features can all be found in a unified console.

Users of the Oracle Commerce Cloud can adjust their sites as needed and preview site experiences with drag-and-drop tools before going live. Built-in image management automatically supports different image sizes.

While prepackaged themes, layouts and modular widgets simplify the store-creation process, developers can also integrate extensions or build custom ones. Based on JavaScript frameworks and a modern HTML5 user interface, Oracle Commerce Cloud's architecture offers direct API access and is designed to make it easy to create integrations with other Oracle applications.

In addition to the new Commerce Cloud, Oracle's CX suite includes Oracle's Marketing Cloud, Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Configure, Price and Quote Cloud and Social Cloud offerings as well.

Oracle Commerce Cloud is built for the Oracle Public Cloud, which processes 22 billion transactions a day via 19 global data centers, according to Oracle. It offers uptime guarantees, elastic scaling, Level 1 PCI Compliance, pod isolation for enhanced protection and 24x7 support.

Oracle Commerce Cloud can be priced on a tiered usage model, based on annual storefront page views, or on a revenue share model based on gross merchandise volume.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
