"Leading eCommerce services companies are recognizing the momentum behind Drupal Commerce and Commerce Guys. Commerce Village is about bringing it all together to inform the community about our expanding ecosystem,” said Frédéric Plais, CEO of Commerce Guys. "Because it's built on a leading content management system, Drupal Commerce has an advantage over other eCommerce solutions, and the providers we are bringing to Commerce Village represent some of the best systems and services in eCommerce.”
New this year, Commerce Guys has teamed with systems integrators and agencies focused on eCommerce through the Drupal Commerce Delivery Partners program. Companies such as NorthPoint Digital and Digital Bridge Solutions will work closely with Commerce Guys to provide consultation and services.
The Commerce Village theme is “START HERE: Everything you need to build, enhance and support your store.” This refers to the flexibility and options open to those building sites with Drupal Commerce, and the Commerce Guys mission to provide the tools necessary for success through Hosting, Modules, Support, and Commerce.
--Also at DrupalCon, demonstrations of the new Platform.sh Continuous Delivery Cloud--
Commerce Guys has just launched Platform.sh, a powerful continuous delivery cloud hosting solution available for systems integrators, digital agencies and individual websites. Platform.sh supports Drupal, Symfony, and other PHP-based applications.
Platform.sh has an optimized development-to-production workflow that is revolutionary in the market, enabling Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) during development, at launch, and throughout a site's life. Unique snapshot technology enables cloning at the speed of thought, replicating full-stack environments on demand and radically improving production return-to-operations (RTO) metrics. Up to 25% savings on developer and systems integration effort are being achieved on beta projects, with the return on investment (ROI) increasing exponentially the larger and more complex the site.
Individual and group demonstrations will be available in the Commerce Village at DrupalCon Austin.
