SAP Customer Experience Application Lifecycle Framework (ALF) for Commerce
SAP Customer Experience Application Lifecycle Framework (ALF) for Commerce is a holistic collection of frameworks and recommended practices for SAP Commerce, covering the whole lifecycle of a SAP Commerce application and solution. It is developed by our specialist SAP Customer Experience Expert Services teams, based on our many years of experience and know-how from deep involvement in a huge variety of SAP Commerce projects – across the world, across multiple business domains, from the very first Hybris implementation in 1997.
Our cross-functional experts have knowledge that spans all disciplines at every stage of our solution’s lifecycle: from the moment a customer chooses SAP Commerce, through initial implementation and go-live, into the ongoing live-service operations and evolution of the solution.
With SAP Customer Experience Application Lifecycle Framework (ALF) for Commerce, we are taking all that experience, knowledge, and know-how and wrapping it up in a framework structure to share with our customers, partners and internal teams – for free – to ensure customer success.
This framework is available and accessible to anyone with a Hybris Wiki account (so all customers, partners and our internal teams).
