There are more than 2,000 vendors of e-commerce technology and services, and they play an indispensible role in the online retail market. They are continually reinventing e-commerce as they expand their product and service lines with innovations that take e-retailing to the next level of performance. In addition, hundreds of new solution providers are emerging with all new products geared to brand new segments of the e-commerce business—from mobile commerce to social media marketing and commerce.
Why is there such a proliferation of e-commerce solutions? The simple answer is that web merchants—driven by a hyper-competitive market—are demanding new and better tools for their e-retail businesses. They are sorting through this growing maize of vendors all the time as they seek to upgrade their retail web sites with the latest technology. In 2012, e-retailers spent about $3 billion on e-commerce technology, according to Gartner Inc., and a recent Internet Retailer survey finds that 68.5% of e-retailers plan to increase their spending on e-commerce applications and services in 2013.
