On-Demand Ecommerce Options
looking for examples

 5:12 pm on Jan 10, 2009 (gmt 0)

I was reading the Internet Retailer magazines, and there was a long discussion about "on-demand ecommerce."

Could someone please list about five of the largest on-demand options? I'm having trouble grasping the idea of what this niche is like.

Small to Medium Size Business.

Thank you

Are hosted carts all "on-demand"? I'm confused.

Still trying to figure out what an "on demand" cart might be.

>> on demand

New one on me.

By on-demand, I believe they mean any ecommerce company that provides their software as a service.

And how long before: On-Demand Ecommerce 2.0?

The term is new to me too. Here's a nice description:

True on-demand must include a grid architecture that delivers capacity when a retailer needs it. This function automatically provisions additional server capacity as needed to handle increased traffic loads, all the while maintaining seamless, optimal performance . Also, retailers no longer have to anticipate peak traffic volumes and always carry the associated costs of maximum capacity.

On-demand e-commerce in the new paradigm shift to synergistically implement customer value. The proprietary innovations were developed by tiger teams from the lessons learned in Total Quality Management implementations of gap analysis. It will utilize a re-engineered best-of-breed skill set for long-term excellence. To conceptualize this mission critical benchmark, team players must think outside the box and proactively focus their mindset on the bottom line. A win-win situation is the highest priority and innovative goal-setting will ensure a robust opportunity for a client-focused, yet backward-compatible, implementations across all market segments.
