eCommerce powerhouse hybris recently announced the release of its new cloud platform: YaaS (“hybris as a Service”). Currently in beta, the platform is set to be launched at the end of August, 2015. YaaS is a completely new product, disconnected from the existing hybris Commerce Suite. It allows companies to build, connect, share, and market eCommerce-related micro-services. Its architecture is all based on RESTful micro-services, accessed and controlled by OAuth authentication. The platform already contains a set of core and commerce services: a document repository, a message queue service, an email service, product/category/cart/tax services, and a checkout mashup service, among others.
