SAP Hybris Commerce Room for Improvement

In terms of improvement? They have set up modules for marketing, financial, everything. I can say everything is an improvement because they keep changing their versions every six months depending on the niche of the business.

They could include additional types of payment implementations. Right now they are just providing CyberSourse. 

They give you a framework and we customize it. The front and back-end are very tightly coupled in the framework right now.

So now they're going to another open-source framework. They're writing their front-end part in Angular. So just the back-end and front-end thing will be coupled. That will make a lighter version.

SAP Hybris does not employ the latest technologies. For example, they still use GSP, Tag Files, an older version of Java, no microservices, and no Amazon Web services.

They have just started to work with the cloud, but they only support Microsoft Azure. If a client wants to use Amazon Web Services then they will not be able to. This is an area of improvement that they can work on. Especially now, with the cloud trending, everyone is talking about the cloud but SAP Hybris is not on it.

Non-Hybris developers find it complicated to work with. To work on Hybris projects, you really need an example to work from, otherwise, it will be more difficult.

In terms of what could be improved, I would say the product search. There will be multiple criteria to search products and there will be a number of products in different categories. The question is how soon can I find the product which I'm looking for. The search can be improved.

There will be security involved in your payment gateway while you are paying. Creating a purchase order. There are many areas that can be improved in the front end - the look and feel performance wise. The entire life cycle right from logging into the particular eCommerce website until you check out, how soon I can complete this entire process? Those are the three areas. There are many areas one can improve.

I think we have the latest Hybris version from 2000, Hybris nine, something like that. Whatever features SAP is releasing, we are evaluating how they will be beneficial to the customer. If it is beneficial, then we are implementing. Apart from that I don't see anything extra.

Hybris is not currently using microservices. Technically, we can introduce microservices to deploy some aspects separately. 

Personally, I find that the Hybris code is not really clean, but that could be due to the fact that we don't always use 100% oriented objects.

Hybris is constantly adding new features that are aligned with market needs. For this reason, feature-wise, I don't see anything that needs to be improved, currently.

The price could be improved. It is very expensive to implement, which is why many companies who can't afford would normally move to Salesforce or Magento. 

It can be tricky to support other features that are inside customization.

The stack needs to be improved; they need to start using more new technologies. Technically we're still using GSP tags and GSL which are old technologies. Now, SAP Hybris has a new project called Spartacus. So, it's getting better, but there is still room for improvement. 

Currently, they don't offer support for mobile applications. Most of the projects I work on are web projects. I have never worked on a project using SAP Hybris that had mobile applications.

The WCS management or content management is not that great.

Every one and a half to two years, Hybris stops updating or supporting previous versions. This means that the end-customer has to update their version every time.

SAP Hybris can work on the virtual commerce (VR) feature, which is new to the market.

Like every other SAP solution, it is very heavy. Also, the transition to the cloud is not very smooth because it is not really a SaaS solution. The upgrades are also not as smooth as you would expect from a complete cloud solution.

It should have a product recommendation feature as well as a promotional feature. It should also have more personalizations.

The look and feel of the user experience could be improved. In the next release, I would like integration of eCommerce platforms with marketing solutions to be included.
