Intershop is moving our Maven and Ivy repositories (https://repository.intershop.de) to a SaaS solution. In October we will provide a new configuration for your Intershop Maven- or Ivy-repositories. URL, usernames and passwords must be changed for the new environment. According to our documentation “Cookbook - Setup CI Infrastructure“ (https://support.intershop.com/kb/279D85) the use of a proxy cache like Sonatype Nexus becomes necessary. The new environment will require a proxy cache and a defined order of external repositories. Intershop is monitoring the download and request numbers, which are limited.
If a proxy cache is not in place already, then please set it up as soon as possible.
At the end of October, Intershop will shut down 'repository.intershop.de' and activate a policy for measuring downloads and requests. We will inform you in time about the new URL and the new access data. If you have any question, please contact our Support or Partner management team.
In November, the release 7.6 of the Intershop Commerce Suite was be published.
Depending on your business model, you can now choose between the B2C edition and the B2X edition which contains additional B2B features:
More Innovation. Enhanced Synaptic Commerce API.
The new responsive Blue Print Store is there.
The reliable platform is a guarantee for success.
From Tuesday, September 22, the URL cic.intershop.de will NOT BE AVAILABLE anymore.
Please be sure to edit your settings and declare insight.intershop.com as the valid address.
Patch Intershop 18.104.22.168 is published, but due to a dbmigrate issue you need to be aware of this:

Huge Knowledge Base enhancements have been made throughout the last days. Our documentation team has set up Topic and Landing Pages for a better orientation. They are included as Overview, a separate Document Type.
The left hand side navigation has been improved for developer documentation, too. You can now find parent and child documents of the current document there.
All documents concerning Gradle/Continuous Integration are now available without Login! Additionally, all Concepts, References, Guides, Overviews are open for everyone, too.
The last part of our latest Knowledge Base rework is the publication of our Intershop Glossary, where you can find definitions and information on almost all Intershop specific terms.

The last weeks have been busy not just in terms of supporting you in technical issues, but in management, administration, documentation and many more aspects of our daily work.
2015 is a year where a full audit concerning the ISO certification takes place.
All elements of our Quality Management System have been reviewed, re-organized, updated and presented as part of our "Top Quality Service" to the auditors.
On Friday, June 26, the last part of the process, the on-site deep dive has taken place. Many questions have been asked, many processes checked. Many more answers have been given and smiles exchanged.
"To enhance customer satisfaction, we have to take care of three layers. The first is the basic layer, where all necessary functionalities have to be implemented in. The second layer is depending on effort. The more effort we take in making a good job, the more pleased our customers are. And last, on top, the third layer of excitement has to be taken care of. Customer satisfaction is enhanced by increasing quality and quantity of services in all of those layers."
- This is what I told the Auditor. This is what I strive for! So do we all and this is why for another three years, we are granted the ISO certification of customer centric support services.
Thank you for all your feedback, which is crucial in determining your high appreciation for our work.

Time to explore the latest Intershop 7 version on our Demo Server
The Demo Server is accessible for all customers, so the content may change. If you need a dedicated system, then create one for your own or contact our sales department. The system is monitored by our Support Team and will be rolled back if critical functions are out of order.
Let your eyes and fingers go on a journey to discover that Intershop 7 is more than just an e-commerce system.
The Training Department offers a new course: The Intershop 7 – Project- / CI Infrastructure-Setup.
The course starts with practical tasks around preparation and usage of a CI infrastructure. It covers the needed
gradle- based Build-, Publishing- and Deployment processes of an environment, that has been introduced with version
7.4CI and improved with version 7.5.
Another focus is put on preparation of projects. Here we cover the SVN setup for simple and advanced component sets as well as assembly structures.
Finally the the environment of developers is being prepared. This allows the creation of selected Intershop 7 components.
Ultimately an automated build of snapshots and releases is configured and triggered.
What you will learn
If you are looking for a page that sums all current information and documents that are available for the Gradle
environment, take a look at the Gradle-Based Build and Deployment Homepage.
This document is a short overview about the available documentation of the build and deployment tools. It should help you to start working with the Gradle-based build and deployment.
