Let's talk

Innovators are rethinking their digital strategy

Oracle Commerce customers are making the switch to VTEX for its modern commerce architecture, flexibility to support any business model, and unparalleled commitment to ensuring every customer’s success.

Businesses need flexibility and speed to evolve customer experiences, collaborating with growing ecosystems of partners and suppliers. And that’s what traditional commerce platforms can’t offer.

VTEX is growing fast, with more than 3,000 customers in 40+ countries.  In 2020, we achieved some remarkable milestones:

VTEX vs Oracle Commerce (ATG)

It may seem counterintuitive, but there was a time it made sense for enterprises to build a full IT infrastructure to support their e-commerce operations. However, once SaaS solutions like VTEX arrived, organizations could respond faster to business and customers’ needs with lower costs and greater flexibility.

Here are the main differences:

VTEX Commerce Platform
Oracle Commerce (ATG)
General
  • Modern, cloud-native and microservices-based Monolithic, on-prem
  • Multi-tenant SaaS solution with microservice, API-first, cloud-based, and headless architecture Not built for the cloud, does not scale efficiently
  • Flexibility to deliver commerce experiences for any channel or customer touchpoint Does not provide the flexibility businesses need to adapt to changing markets and business needs
  • Assemble VTEX Commerce Platform capabilities, third-party applications, and custom-built elements to create a unique commerce ecosystem Built over 20 years ago, using outdated technology and architectural principles
  • The modular approach makes it easy to add, modify, or update elements as business needs and customer preferences change Discontinued “Premier Support” in 2019 and announced no new fixes or certifications would be delivered, shifting all R&D efforts to the Oracle Commerce Cloud solution
Architecture
  • Microservice, API-first, cloud-native, and headless architecture Monolith solution that has been separated into a few large blocks
  • Continuous innovation and updates on individual services without affecting other parts of the system Inflexible, complex to integrate and extend
  • Flexibility to combine VTEX services with third-party and custom applications No new releases from Oracle, business are on their own to maintain the platform
Upgrades
  • Over 12,000 automatic upgrades per year so users don't have to go through lengthy upgrade cycles and refactor custom code Oracle no longer issues new fixes or certifications for the solution
Scalability
  • No need to manage servers and environments Requires an IT or cloud-ops team to manually deploy additional resources
  • No need to plan, scale or monitor resources for peak events - it’s all taken care of automatically Peak events must be planned ahead of time and businesses need to constantly monitor for usage spikes
  • Services scale up and down dynamically as each one of them requires different capacities When extra capacity is needed, the entire platform must be scaled, which is less efficient and consumes more compute resources
Extensibility
  • Offers VTEX IO, a low-code development platform Must create dev-ops processes and tools for managing and deploying customizations
  • Custom code and extensions are maintained separate from platform code Developers need to directly modify the platform code
  • VTEX takes care of all the servers and environments for you Need to maintain separate development, test, and staging servers
Applications and Integrations
  • Serverless - you don’t need to create and manage environments and servers for your applications and integrations Need to host and manage servers and environments for all front-end applications and integrations
  • Versionless APIs provide access to all VTEX services and data objects APIs were added after the fact and are versioned
  • Over 1,000 pre-built applications and integrations All applications and integrations must be custom-built
Customer Success and Support
  • 24x7 support. The Customer Success team helps you maximize traffic, conversion, and sales as part of the VTEX service fee Oracle Commerce is currently in “Sustaining Support”, which means ATG users have limited support when issues arrive
  • VTEX provides Customer Success Managers that serve as partners to help you meet your revenue goals Oracle Commerce is end-of-life and Oracle is no longer investing in the solution, having switched resources and focus to the new Oracle Commerce Cloud, which is unproven and unreliable
