HCL Commerce Migration to V9.0

Greater Agility and Flexibility

HCL Commerce v9 has been released and it gives organizations greater agility and flexibility to innovate and adjust to their go-to-market strategies and transform how they engage customers across channels. Unlike version 8, which came after 6 years gap, HCL has reduced the major release period this time.
What is even more important is that the support for v7 (with most of the customers still running on it) will end on December 30, 2021 (End of Support).
Customers on v7, therefore, need to think about a migration project. We have covered the different phases of migration and the new features of HCL Commerce v9 in the below sections.

Phases of Migration

A migration project for any live HCL Commerce site is an activity that must be carefully thought out.

There are 03 Main Phases of the Migration Project

The Planning Phase
The Practice Phase
The Production Migration Phase

Planning Phase

In the planning phase, we take list of clients current HCL Commerce Assets, such as servers, software, documentation, databases and custom code. It is crucial to know which customizations client has, and where system integrates with external systems.

Practice Phase

The practice phase is divided into 02 or more parts, depending on clients business.

  • Migrating the Development Environment
  • Migrating the Test Environment

Production Migration Phase

The v9.0 migration offers a minimal downtime solution, so when we migrate your live environment to v9.0, you can continue to serve traffic.
The majority of the production migration takes place offline. In fact, the live database is the only tier from your production environment that gets migrated directly from one runtime environment to another. And that database migration can occur in parallel to serving traffic.
