Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) April 17, 2015

HotWax Systems, creator of Apache OFBiz Accelerator, the enterprise-class digital commerce platform powered by Apache OFBiz, today announced that it has been included in Gartner’s research guide, “The Gartner Digital Commerce Vendor Guide, 2015,” in the Open-Source Digital Commerce category.

“HotWax Systems is delighted to be included in this year’s guide in the open-source digital commerce category and would also like to acknowledge the OFBiz open source community,” said Mike Bates, CEO at HotWax Systems. He added, “We’re committed to supporting and nurturing open source, and believe that open source enterprise digital commerce platforms will prove to be the most powerful and cost-effective solutions in the years ahead.”

According to Gartner, Inc., “By 2018, more than 50% of commerce sites will integrate technologies from more than 15 vendors to deliver a digital customer experience.” 1

“Integrating technologies from multiple vendors can be expensive and time consuming for commerce sites,” Bates stated. He added, “With this in mind, we’ve designed an end-to-end digital commerce platform that dramatically reduces the need for integrations, multiple systems, and multiple vendors. The power and flexibility of Apache OFBiz make it all possible.”

HotWax Systems donates thousands of volunteer hours annually to the Apache OFBiz project. In addition, the company recently released OFBiz Connect, an open source plugin that easily connects Magento, a leading digital commerce platform, with the ERP management functions of Apache OFBiz.
