CoreMedia Partners with Zilker Technology to Provide Roadmap to Help IBM Customers Optimize E-Commerce Investments
World-Class CMS and Expert Integrator Team to Help Commerce Clients Looking for Clarity After Platform Divestiture to HCL
CoreMedia, developer of the content management and experience orchestration platform, CoreMedia Content Cloud, announced an exciting initiative with digital consultancy and systems integrator, Zilker Technology, to provide existing IBM WebSphere Commerce customers with a package of software and services designed to increase the value and ROI of their current eCommerce infrastructure. At the core of this initiative is a free three-hour consultation called “So, what now?”, designed to help customers evaluate the best growth options for their platform.
“As long-term partners of IBM, we know customers have made a good investment with WebSphere Commerce. But we’re also aware that the recent divestiture of the platform to HCL has raised some questions,” said Jim Stirewalt, General Manager of North America for CoreMedia. “We’ve launched this partnership with Zilker to demonstrate to IBM customers that their platform provides the perfect foundation for orchestrating all their brand assets and facilitating next-generation customer experiences.”
The offering combines Zilker’s extensive experience solving complex technical challenges with CoreMedia’s advanced content management capabilities and pre-built integrations with IBM’s eCommerce and Marketing platforms. This combined solution increases the value of current WebSphere Commerce platforms by adding a wide range of omnichannel brand management capabilities, including in-store displays, websites, mobile apps, and digital billboards.
“We believe our combined solution with CoreMedia has the potential to be a game changer for the IBM Commerce community,” said Rob Thomas, Zilker Technology Managing Partner and CEO. “This offer is designed to give them complete control over the future success of their brands, allowing them to augment an already powerful IBM stack with powerful new tools for innovation and competitive differentiation.”
The offering begins with a consultative three-hour workshop to help customers evaluate strategic options, both long- and short-term. A key outcome of this workshop is a customized Content and Customer Experience (CX) maturity model to help IBM customers plan their digital future. The goal is to help companies accelerate time to market by up to 99%, allowing marketers and merchandizers to roll out compelling global campaigns in hours rather than weeks and enabling developers to quickly integrate any best-of-breed platform, touchpoint, or technology.
