The powerful WebSphere Commerce platform is a great place to run your online store, but a platform with this much potential requires adhering to best practices in order to fully meet its potential. The IBM Knowledge Center contains plenty of information to help you leverage your WCS site, including a list of ways to ensure a successful deployment.
Tip 2: Do not use technology just for its own sake
The Knowledge Center makes this point pretty clear: “Technology is a means to an end. Use only the technologies that match your needs.” You can have all of the flashy technology you want, but if it doesn’t help the customer get to their end goal, or, even worse, hinders them from reaching that goal, it will not be good for business.
Tip 3: When you design the site, storyboard and mock up the business flows
A picture is worth a thousand words, and when you consider how much those words can be misunderstood, it’s worth even more. With so many different people involved in the planning and development of a site, having your design team create comprehensive mock ups helps clarify the vision for everyone.
