IBM i native Storefront Shopping

iShop is a professional services project area, dedicated to web enabled commerce from the IBM i platform.

An iShop professional services engagement provides the architecture design, project management, security analysis,  technology selection and implementation necessary to achieve the customer’s e-commerce objectives.

In the past, implementations have broadly followed two patterns:

A shopping cart running on an IBM i server. This includes searchable product catalogs from db2 tables and order export to db2 tables on the same lpar.

A connector from the e-commerce server to the IBM i data server. This connector serves as a pipe, uploading product data to the e-commerce server and downloading order and payment information.

  • High availability and reliability
  • Close integration with existing ERP packages
