Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a very mature product. It has a lot of features. It can also be very easily customized in order to reach goals or features that are not available, but mainly the fact that it's a very mature platform with all major features that are normally required by the clients is most valuable.""I haven't faced any issues with the product's stability.""The most valuable solution is that it allows you to adapt it according to the customer's needs.""Has all the modules needed for an order management solution."

"The features that help us to change the product and pricing are good. They give us enough flexibility to manage this application.""The most valuable features are all the promotion capabilities and the tiered-pricing capabilities.""The tool's most valuable features are its integration with various scanners, OCR capability, and ability to populate the system with a lot of information. We use the workload automation feature occasionally.""The merchandising part is where the business user adds and configures permissions, which is quite important for us."

More Oracle ATG Pros →

"Another area of improvement is the user-friendliness of the back office stuff. This issue is still valid, and it is still a problem, but I know they are currently working on it.""Lacks option to purchase individual modules.""The tool has a really rigid structure, so it is not something that has the simplicity to adapt to newer environments in a fast manner.""The product catalog is an area that needs improvement."

More HCL Digital Commerce Cons →

"Oracle has a cloud solution, but some on-prem features are not available in the cloud version.""So far, with Oracle ATG, I haven't seen any good cloud-based solutions.""There should be some sort of native integration. All the integrations that we build are completely customized. There should also be a mechanism for user surveys and product reviews. As of now, I don't see any feature related to these. It must have a provision for doing customer surveys and allowing customers to give product feedback. If I have a customer who purchased something on the website, there has to be a mechanism for a company to capture the feedback. This feature is currently not there. Similarly, if a customer wants to do a review of the product, there is no native feature for that.""One drawback is that the tool could be more agile in adding new features. Since the product is very big, new features aren't added continuously. However, it already meets most of our requirements for day-to-day use."

    Oracle ATG has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

    • Personalization capabilities: Oracle ATG has personalization capabilities including DPS and DSS. The personalization module (DPS) provides control to customize the content as per customer interest, targeting content based on the customer’s interest. The scenarios module (DSS) extends the content targeting capabilities of the personalization module. In addition, you can have customized content in a way that changes dynamically for each user. Scenarios are time-sensitive, event-driven campaigns designed to manage interactions between site visitors and content over a long period.
    • Data anywhere architecture: Oracle ATG is designed with data anywhere architecture, meaning implementation is independent of the data source. With Oracle ATG, if you change your database, you do not have to change your code.
    • Payment integration support: Oracle ATG eCommerce supports various payment gateway integrations, which includes credit card, PayPal, or any other payment mode. The code can be customized to any payment method you want.
    • Application server support: Oracle ATG’s eCommerce applications are built on the concept of component-based model. It supports most of the major application servers, like JBOSS, WebLogic, and WebSphere. The component model is implemented using JSP and Java Beans, which are easily and widely used.

    Oracle ATG Benefits

    There are several benefits to implementing Oracle ATG. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

    • It enables merchants to manage and sell complex products.
    • It allows merchants to efficiently personalize the shopper experience through customisable content, sites, and campaigns.
    • The solution is designed with a unified architecture that lets you manage multiple sites efficiently.
    • Oracle ATG includes robust personalization features, including tailored content and merchandise, personalized search, tailored websites, and customized marketing programs.
    • With the solution’s data anywhere architecture, you can easily manage integrations.
    • Business users can develop categories, products, and SKUs and organize them into catalogs that exist in a content management environment.
    • It is simple and easy to use with a clean interface.
    • Oracle ATG also has good dashboards for visualizing the data in a comprehensive and clear format.
    • Because Oracle ATG is a server-side, component-driven platform, you can use headless systems while retaining most of its features. If you already have an Oracle ATG setup, you can keep the frontend and migrate the backend to a microservices-based alternative for more flexibility.
