LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 22, 2017) –A group of twelve customers and solution providers have formed a new user group for Oracle Commerce focused on Oracle ATG, Endeca and Commerce Cloud. The new group, created in late 2016, has officially launched as CommercePros.

The purpose of the group is to unite the Commerce user base, share best practices and lessons learned as well as influence Oracle’s product direction. The community itself will be open to Oracle Commerce customers and solution providers that offer complimentary solutions and services.
“As a group, we felt that we needed the ability to better leverage our Oracle investment given the rapidly evolving technology landscape. This presented a great opportunity to create a dedicated community for Oracle Commerce users that will provide additional guidance and support,” said David Lyle, Founding Member and Chairman of CommercePros. “This is a brand-new user group and the response within the community has been extremely positive.
