The capability provided to the customer-x is to use the provider’s applications running on a infrastructure. The applications are accessible from various client devices through either a thin client interface, such as a web browser or an application user interface. The customer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure (network, servers, operating systems, storage, or even individual application capabilities), with the possible exception of limited user-specific application configuration settings.
Scalability is the ability of a system to handle increased traffic or data load without impact on the system performance, and the ability to be easily maintained and enhanced. There are two scalability methods for improving the performance:
|security||In the context of e-commerce software, security refers to the applied policies and protocols designed to secure the storage, transmission and processing of sensitive data. With Intershop 7 and Intershop Commerce Management this includes, but is not limited to|
|selling organization||In Enfinity Suite 6/Intershop 7/Intershop Commerce Management, the sales organization represents the owner or root organization of a system that implements a multi-channel sales business model. Typically, the sales organization represents a merchant, i.e., an organization that manages its demand chain, publishes content and manages order-xs.|
|service registry||A service registry is a centralized service used to dynamically register and locate server processes and microservices in distributed environments. It allows services to register themselves, maintaining names, configuration information, etc., and clients to discover and locate these services. That is, it decouples service providers from consumers without the need for DNS and enables client-side load-balancing.|
In the Enfinity Suite 6/ setup program, one of the three "building blocks" (see below) which are individually installable for distributed installations. A setup component comprises one or more system s.
Enfinity Suite 6
Intershop 7/Intershop Commerce Management
An e-commerce software that operates web shops internationally must have a flexible and generally valid shipping component. Intershop 7 and Intershop Commerce Management provide a shipping framework that allows users and developers to flexibly combine the following concepts and apply them according to the business needs:
|shipping advice||When using Intershop Commerce Advisor in B2B scenarios, the shipping advice tells when the ordered product are suggested to be delivered to the merchant. This recommendation is based on the merchant's business profile, the order-x history and additional details.|
SIMCOMMERCE is a framework for building simulation applications for predictive analytics and reporting aiming at optimizing e-commerce processes. SIMCOMMERCE applications include the Intershop Commerce Advisor and Payment Forecast.
Single sign-on is a strategy for access control of multiple related, but independent software systems. With SSO, a user logs in once and gains access to all systems without being prompted to log in again at each of them (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_sign-on)
|slug||In the SEO context, a slug is the part of a URL that identifies a page in human-readable keywords. It is usually the end part of the URL, which can be interpreted as the name of the resource to which it points (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semantic_URL#Slug).|
|snapshot build||In the context of continuous integration, a snapshot build refers to a system component-based build process that is triggered immediately after a development artifact modification is committed.|
Also a snapshot assembly is created, so that a dbinit process can be run to provide feedback on possible database initialization issues.
|Solr||Solr is a popular enterprise search engine from the Apache Lucene project. Intershop 7 and Intershop Commerce Management bundle the Apache Solr search engine by default in order to index and retrieve products and web content management content.|
Depending on the context, "staging" may refer to different concepts:
|state||In the context of Commerce Management, refers to the administrative unit (political entity) forming part of a federal sovereign state such as the United States, Australia, India and Brazil.|
|status||In the context of Commerce Management, System Management or Cluster Management, refers to the position or situation (one of several defined conditions) of a business object at a particular time. For example, an order can be "delivered", or a payment can be "captured".|
Generally, a subscription is a one-time triggered, but periodically executed purchase of certain products or services. In subscription-based business models, consequently, customers pay periodically to use or receive a defined set of products or services at a regular base.
In the context of the Intershop Cloud Portal, a subscription is a billing container for deployed Microsoft Azure services.
|Synaptic Commerce||Synaptic Commerce is a way to engage customers by combining best-of-breed e-commerce systems in an agile and efficient way.|
|Synaptic Commerce API||Synaptic Commerce API is the umbrella term for all Intershop synchronous and asynchronous interfaces to external systems, such as REST API, managed microservices API and import/export interfaces. The Synaptic Commerce API is used to build system landscapes for Synaptic Commerce.|
|Synaptic Exchange||Synaptic Exchange is Intershop's marketplace and collaboration platform for Synaptic Commerce. It allows for the fast and efficient creation, recombination and extension of commerce capabilities around Intershop Commerce Suite. Customers can find solutions that fit their needs and partners can offer their solutions and services.|
A system administrator is a technical operator who installs, configures, maintains the Intershop software installation and connected systems like database systems.
It has the following characteristics:
A system component is subject to a life cycle with the following statuses:
Each system component is part of a system component set.
Generally, a process within a distributed system for collecting and storing status data, intended to detect and diagnose complex application performance problems to maintain an expected level of service.
In the context of Intershop 7/Intershop Commerce Management, the System Management monitoring module is the main system monitoring tool. Using this module, system administrators can monitor the properties, process information, current threads and requests of all server components in the Intershop Commerce Management system. This information can be used for advanced debugging, profiling and troubleshooting purposes in an Intershop Commerce Management installation.
