With Roy Rubin’s tweet today, we have one more example of an eCommerce platform working to make mobile commerce (mCommerce) an easy next step for their clients. The list continues to grow and includes platform providers such as ATG, IBM Websphere Commerce, Fry, Marketlive, Demandware, Escalate Retail, hybris, Intershop, and now Magento. In some cases this is being done natively within the application via the mobile web leveraging browser detection and CSS, in some cases through partnerships with third parties, and in some cases through services which enable mobile applications. Many other platform solution providers I have a chance to work with are not far behind, and are working hard on this. (Some of whom I am bound to hear from as soon as I hit “publish” with this post). But a key question is:
What are some key things to look for when evaluating this piece of the commerce solution portfolio?
There is of course more to think about than just this list, but hopefully this is a good list to leave you with. For Forrester clients, I encourage you to reach out to myself, Sucharita Mulpuru or Julie Ask for an inquiry on mobile commerce strategy, operations, and technology solutions. If you are a vendor of platforms or mobile commerce solutions and wish to brief us, please request a briefing here.
I look forward to your comments, what should we add to this list?
