The lead Business Practitioner, Analyst or Architect for the project should cover the following areas in-depth before starting an Experience Manager and hybris implementation.

  1. Project Taxonomy must be defined.
  2. The Product page should be defined including possible variants
  3. A sandbox environment for hybris should be setup. This should be different from the QA hybris instance.
  4. The development machine should be (at the least) Mac with 8GB RAM and SSD.
  5. Define the URL mapping strategy, if product categories and catalog creation is dynamic.
  6. Define the candidate web sites to use the integration, including any regional and multi-lingual web portals.
  7. Identify other Adobe Products integration with Experience Manager & hybris.
  8. Define Product Launches in hybris and Experience Manager.
  9. Identify the usage of proxy pages, if needed, in Experience Manager for product pages.
  10. Review existing Experience Manager infrastructure to make sure AEM Commerce can be supported.
  11. Redefine Experience Manager Content model, as we have now catalogs along with AEM Sites and AEM Assets.
  12. Identify workflows to support custom hybris integration.
