SAP Commerce Cloud offers a REST based API called Omni Commerce Connect (OCC) that can be used to implement shopping, account management, checkout, and even administration flows in a application. However, many enterprise sites have significantly customized their controller logic and those customizations may need to be re-created in client side code or in the separate OCC controllers. This can add additional effort when migrating to an OCC based solution like Spartacus. Synthetic APIs can reduce this workload, which can be found on Moovweb XDN, along with AMP and SSR technology to optimize website speed for websites running on the platform.
