Created by Ecommerce Expert

Ecommerce expert, Michael Vax

My name is Michael Vax, and I created this course to help businesses to plan and manage their digital initiatives. I am an Ecommerce industry veteran with 30 years of IT experience, including more than a decade as an executive leading the development of top enterprise Ecommerce platforms and helping customers to move their business online working for such industry leaders as Hybris (SAP), Spryker, and Elasticpath.Β 

That experience gave me a unique insider view of how Ecommerce has evolved from a niche industry for online retailers to a cornerstone of every modern business. Over these years, I had opportunities to develop eCommerce solutions catering to various industries, encompassing retail, manufacturing, grocery stores, restaurants, telecommunications, finance, travel, and direct-to-consumer businesses.

Having worked closely with many clients, I realized that in many organizations, the success of digital initiatives is hindered by the lack of eCommerce proficiency and knowledge. To address this challenge in 2019, I founded CommerceIsDigital with a clear goal to create comprehensive training programs tailored to professionals implementing B2C and B2B eCommerce initiatives, effectively addressing this pressing skill gap.

These programs helped hundreds of professionals to become experts in digital commerce.

I am a regular speaker on podcasts and industry events and write extensively on eCommerce best practices and the application of artificial intelligence in eCommerce.Β
