According to the Forrester B2C Commerce Suite Wave report; “Today’s
multichannel businesses are increasingly multisite and multibrand businesses. This trend enables
more specific and targeted marketing opportunities for customers; they can also benefit from
search engine optimization (SEO) by enabling the use of more specific terms and metadata to
target related search terms. Innovative merchandising and marketing in areas like flash sales,
social commerce, and mobile commerce are also driving forces behind the need to support a
diverse set of sites and customer touchpoints from a common infrastructure.”
