Commerce Server, New Efficiency and SEO

Here’s the details of our meeting tomorrow Wednesday 27 January:

Microsoft Commerce Server 2009

Presented by Lewis Benge and Ducas Francis

Microsoft Commerce Server 2009/2009 R2 is a comprehensive e-commerce solution for B2C (business-to-consumer), B2B (business-to-business) and B2X scenarios (combining B2C and B2B). It provides a reduce time to market by providing the key tools and components required to get a solution off the ground – whilst remaining extensible enough to integrate into third party systems, such as CRM, ERP, and other LOB systems.

This session will cover an introduction to the server platform – explaining its 5 core areas, and a high level overview of its API for extensibility. The session will also feature some case studies, and application examples around the deployment of Commerce Server.
