There’s a lot to consider when building out an e-commerce strategy – there is no one-size-fits-all approach that works for every organization.
E-commerce touches several different parts of a company, including business and technical decision makers, the security department and others.
When building out an e-commerce strategy, it is imperative to consider the following:
- The business perspective may focus on costs, performance, features and product sets that make up the e-commerce solution
- The technical aspect may focus on the systems that host the application that meets the business’ needs
- The security focus may evaluate the controls that protect the business and the systems that host the application. It also ensures that information collected during an e-commerce transaction is properly stored and protected so that a sense of trust is established with the customer – whose perspective may ultimately be the most critical.
In a recent webinar, Rackspace Marketing Director Mary Braunwarth, Rackspace Enterprise Solutions Architect Matt Montelone and Rackspace Product Marketing Manager Mahesh Ghande got together for a panel discussion to highlight how to build an inventory for a successful strategy for business, technical and security departments.
