How our clients Transformed ERP and Ecommerce with Composable Architecture

James Huang | 2024.07.06

One of our client recently achieved a significant milestone by transforming its ERP and ecommerce through the innovative use of composable architecture. This case study showcases how adopting a MACH (Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS, and Hosted Solution). mindset can propel businesses into a new era of digital agility and consumer engagement. This approach aligns perfectly with the solutions offered by Mercury Technology Solution, highlighting the power of flexible, modular technology to drive business success.

The Starting Point: Traditional Limitations

The journey began about three years ago, when the company realized the limitations of their existing monolithic ERP system. While the system was comprehensive by design, it was not agile enough to keep pace with rapidly changing consumer expectations and market dynamics. This realization prompted our client to explore a new approach that could offer greater flexibility and innovation.

The MACH Mindset

In 2020, the MACH Alliance was formed to promote marketing technology and practices fitting composable, modular systems. These principles—Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS, and Headless—offered a groundbreaking alternative to large, all-in-one vendors, supporting a more dynamic and fluid marketing organization. For our client, adopting the MACH mindset meant shifting from a single, cumbersome system to a more agile, integrated approach.

Transforming ERP and Commerce

First step towards a composable architecture was focused on creating a new ecommerce platform for the brand. By embracing agile marketing and technology integration, the company could innovate more rapidly and efficiently. The result was a nimble connection between manufacturing, supply chain, and automation, enabling new ways for customers to order and personalize products.

The strategy was clear: separating more consumer-facing architecture to enable quicker innovation while keeping the core ERP focused on essential functions like financials and inventory.

The Role of Phygital Retail-Tainment and Omni-Channel Experiences

One of the innovative concepts we pioneered was "retail-tainment." The idea was to create immersive brand experiences in physical stores. These stores offered more than just products; they provided consumers with personalized, engaging experiences.

The adoption of a composable architecture allowed them to integrate these retail experiences seamlessly with their digital platforms. This integration is crucial for supporting an omnichannel ecosystem—ensuring that the consumer experience is consistent and personalized whether they interact with the brand online or in-store.
