Online shops: strong growth requires innovative operating models

From the “E-commerce hosting in the cloud age” study on the topic of online shop hosting by Crisp Research: The e-commerce market in Germany has grown and has hit the limit of 50 billion Euro market volume in 2014. Nevertheless, the entire industry is facing a test, as the pressure on cost and innovation is forcing companies to act.

The demands placed by customers on online shops are constantly increasing, while new technology and market trends (e.g. omni-channel) mean the industry is constantly shifting, forcing companies to maintain high levels of innovation.

Leading e-commerce companies are increasingly switching to managed cloud solutions. The underlying hosting infrastructure is an important foundation for a successful and growing business. Only powerful backends can support a dynamic and attractive online shop. Companies will therefore increasingly rely on cloud computing and managed services to stay competitive with regard to infrastructure, security and applications. There will also be a change in the IT operating models.
