Last week we launched version 9.3 of Sitecore Experience Commerce. This builds upon our previous releases to not only expand the functionality available to customers but also to improve the performance of the product.
A series of new and updated features were shipped with Sitecore Experience Commerce 9.3. These updated all areas of the product from the Commerce Business Tools all the way through to the Storefront, including the marketing functionality. You can find videos highlighting some of the new key features below:
- Storefront– The introduction of Scriban & search improvements
- BizFX – Version updates & search improvements
- Marketing – Personalisation rule updates, extended EXM integration & Marketing Automation improvements
With Sitecore Experience Commerce 9.2 we released our first performance White Paper, which you can download here. Lot’s of further performance work has gone into the new version and an updated version of this White Paper will be released. For the first time this will give us hard metrics on how the throughput the product can achieve has improved between versions, something the community has been crying out for. Look out for the announcement in the coming weeks.
The final point I want to touch on is the installation. Anyone who’s been working with Sitecore Experience Commerce for a while will quickly notice the improvements that have been made to the installation scripts provided with the product. These are still based on the Sitecore Installation Framework (SIF), but are now much more configurable. Giving you more fine-grained control over where and how you setup your developer workstation. Let’s say you don’t want to install to /inetput/wwwroot? Maybe you want to skip the creation of the default SXA Storefront or tenant? Maybe you want to skip the installation of SXA Storefront all together? Well now all these options, and more, are configurable through the provided parameters.
The latest version of Sitecore Experience Commerce is available to download today on dev.sitecore here.
