commerceserver.net, an ISV based in Seattle and Ottawa, today announced the release of the latest version of its enterprise eCommerce software, Commerce Server 10. This marks the first independent release of the software previously sold and marketed as Microsoft Commerce Server.
Commerce Server 10 is the first release on the newly published roadmap for the product and lays the foundations for a rapid evolution of the product which will see it grow from a purely on-premise solution, to one which embraces the Cloud and hybrid scenarios over the next few years. It also adds support for the latest Microsoft server platforms Windows Server 2012, SQL Server 2012, Visual Studio 2012 and .NET Framework 4.5.
In addition to the new platform support, this release introduces a new site building framework with a set of open source starter sites for ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC and of course, SharePoint – all released via CodePlex. This new framework vastly simplifies the building of the presentation tier of eCommerce solutions.
“We are incredibly excited by the release of Commerce Server 10. Not only is it the fastest time-to-market of any Commerce Server release in history, we feel it is by far the most customer-focused and best performing iteration in the product's history. It represents a significant next step on our plans to rapidly evolve Commerce Server into the commerce platform of choice for the .NET ecosystem,” said Ryan Donovan, President and CTO of commerceserver.net.
As part of this announcement, commerceserver.net is proud to introduce a roster of worldwide implementation partners, with more being added each month. “We’re excited that many existing Commerce Server partners are supporting this release but encouraged at the approach from many new partners and customers wanting to work with the platform – it validates both our roadmap and our thinking that there is a vibrant market for a .NET based eCommerce Solution,” said Wayne Smith, Vice President of Product Management.
