The State of Salesforce Commerce Cloud
Salesforce Commerce Cloud was original launched in 2005 under the name Demandware. Salesforce acquired Demandware in 2016 and subsequently renamed the product to Salesforce Commerce Cloud. The Demandware founders previously worked at Intershop, an early ecommerce pioneer, so it's safe to say that the platform has a very solid foundation.
While there are relatively few merchants using Salesforce Commerce Cloud, the merchants that do use it tend to be very big. It will be interesting to see if Salesforce intends to increase platform reach by moving down-market to appeal to smaller merchants. While the average size of their current merchant base is quite enviable, today's new merchants are almost certainly launching on other platforms like Shopify.
At present, there are 3,623 live stores running on the Salesforce Commerce Cloud platform.
