Crowlify simplifies the build process of HCL Commerce custom images connecting to the customer custom code repository and implementing a basic continuous integration process integrated with the product
Crowlify API are abstracting the Commerce data command line utilities complexity transforming a data engineer task in a simpler office operation
After every deployment, a set of automatic tests is executed to validate it and all test results are shown in a dedicated test dashboard
Crowlify hides the complexity of a HCL Commerce kubernetes deployment and allows to control the costs of operational environments scheduling their availability, especially for lower environments
The reasons why
For new or existing HCL Commerce customers, Crowlify is the accelerator that hide the cloud and Kubernetes complexities and clear the path to a true Commerce composable solution
Crowlify is an operation platform that simplifies the process of creating and handling HCL Commerce environments without the need for a dedicated DevOps team. This reduces the knowledge gap for retail customers to be introduced to the Docker-Kubernetes world.
With Crowlify, customers can optimize their environment usage without keeping the infrastructure always on, aligning the availability to business hours.
Time to market
With Crowlify customers can put the business features at the center, turning on ephemeral Commerce environments whenever a feature needs to be released.
Crowlify provides a secure and reliable platform for managing HCL Commerce environments accessing the customer infrastructure or using an internal hosting with a sandbox approach.
We created a migration pattern to help the customer end to end, moving to the new version and using Crowlify to reduce the impact on introducing a new technology stack.
