Intershop and Carrenza launch new as-a-Service omni-channel solution; Intershop and Carrenza combine their expertise to deliver a unique offering for omni-channel commerce

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London, England - Carrenza, a specialist supplier of cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions, and Intershop, a leading provider of omni-channel commerce solutions, have announced the launch of a new joint offering for the retail sector.

The joint offering will see Carrenza take the legacy Intershop client/server application and deliver it via an as-a-Service model, enabling the firm to offer it to customers on a utility based pay-as-you-go op-ex model with flexible pricing options depending on the best fit for each individual customer.

The strong relationship between Carrenza and Intershop has been established by a growing list of successful deployments, delivered in conjunction with Intershops integration partners, such as Javelin Group. Since first coming together two years ago, Majestic Wine, Pottermore and de Bijenkorf are just some of the success stories.

Among the successes of this partnership is the support of Dutch retailer de Bijenkorf's Three Crazy Days sale in October 2013. During this event, the client's website was the second-busiest ecommerce platform in Europe, so it was vital the firm could rely on its partners to scale its offering quickly for the occasion.

Richard Weaver, Ecommerce Director at Majestic Wine says; The service provided by Carrenza and Intershop provides the flexibility and scalability required to meet the needs of our online business, both today and for future growth. We wanted a best-of-breed product capable of meeting our requirements and the solution from Carrenza and Intershop delivers.

Carrenza is using its market leading approach to automation to simplify the deployment and management of the Intershop omni-channel platform to enable a true as-a-Service model without having to rewrite the software. This consists of a range of open-source tools that are able to streamline all aspects of the deployment and management of the Intershop application, as well as the related databases and the underlying infrastructure. The result is a service with built in scalability and resiliency, perfect for even the most demanding of e-commerce environments.

Udo Rauch, VP Channel at Intershop said: "The partnership with Carrenza enables us to offer fully scalable on-demand solutions to our partners and customers. That trust and competence that we have built up with Carrenza has been the basis on which our relationship has flourished, and we're now excited to engage further with them to take us to new markets and ensure even more customers can benefit from our omni-channel commerce solution." - Ends - *NOTES TO EDITORS* *About Intershop* Intershop Communications AG (founded in Germany 1992; Prime Standard: ISH2) is the leading independent provider of omni-channel commerce solutions.
