Znode: The new revelation to E-commerce

Znode has been among the few technology firms who have primarily adopted the concept and practicality of the Headless Commerce architecture unlike traditional E-commerce development adopting a connected front end and back end for the website which also highlights an issue of limited flexibility, design constraints and experience that have already been defined. In simple words, the headless commerce architecture adopts a separate front end and back end which provides complete freedom to build a customized E-commerce platform to any extent. In case of traditional platforms where the front and back end are developed under the same framework, Znode’s architecture provides APIs to connect the front end to the back end and which allows front end and back end from two different frameworks to be utilized seamlessly. But with other Headless E-commerce platforms the availability of prebuilt APIs sure comes as a shortcoming which in turn results in development efforts growing. Znode’s prebuilt 600 APIs makes sure to ensure smooth integration across a wide array of frameworks providing a pretty much robust and easy to utilize API Layer. Znode can integrate into existing platforms, mobile apps, ERPs, CRMs or any other systems. But why did Znode pick a headless architecture? The headless architecture provisions consistent functional updates and not expensive upgrades which brings down the cost of upgrading the platform at anytime which ensures a sustainable e-commerce platform. This results in Customers leveraging spends more towards marketing experience more. The second primary benefit includes API Integration with third party systems, legacy infrastructure increases flexibility and boost to market launch as well. With ready made frameworks to connect to ERPs and other applications which can be used to extend different framework as well. The basic components of the Znode’s headless architecture include the following:
Services:
The layer responsible for aggregating data and business libraries for developing logic.
Business Libraries:
These are the components that contain the primary logic of the E-commerce platform.
Provider Engine:
The main component of Znode architecture responsible for extensibility and customization.
Site Search:
Using the powerful Elasticsearch functionality, rather than a regular search engine query optimizes the search results and provides better access to search results.
Data Access:
The methods and procedures data are stored in the MSSQL Server Database and retrieved using the Entity Framework along with customized procedural methods.
Znode does not limit itself to the above listed features but also can customize a completely new feature or logic easily as well to suit the B2B business needs as well as a result of the Headless Commerce approach.
