GSPANN developed an end-to-end e-commerce architecture and design, leveraging SFCC and Mulesoft’s Anypoint Platform middleware, that included Android and IOS iOS app development, production deployment, setting up monitoring and alerts, and a CI/CD implementation.
Nearly every aspect of the client’s e-commerce operation was upgraded during its engagement with Team GSPANN. SFCC was integrated with the customer’s existing third party applications that included Bloomreach and opened up possibilities for easy integration with other back-end platforms in the client's eco-system, such as inventory management, payment, and tax calculation sub-systems.
The client’s particular interest is how GSPANN engineers were able to incorporate the Mulesoft’s Anypoint Platform to access the SFCC Open Commerce API, allowing interaction with mobile apps. This in turn enabled mobile apps to provide a vast array of abilities, including application monitoring, crash reporting, alert notifications, app analytics, tag management, payment processing, and social media integration. All in all, over 60 REST API endpoints were developed to serve the client's mobile e-commerce experience.
Team GSPANN took care of four aspects:
- Simplified API Management: We developed new APIs quickly while providing caching and access control.
- Integrated External Systems: Our solution allowed integration of different systems in the client's ecosystem via exposed APIs.
- DevOps and CI/CD Pipeline: Automated deployment on MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform.
- Microservices Architecture: Created the microservices architectural approach to provide maximum flexibility.
