About This Constellation ShortList™

About Matrix Commerce

Matrix Commerce™ analyzes the disruptive pressures influencing the commerce paradigm. Commerce 
faces rapidly changing business models and new payment options that are often misunderstood and poorly integrated. 

Matrix commerce means the fusing of demand signals and supply chains in an increasingly complex world of buyers seeking frictionless buying experiences. Friction in this new world originates from new regulatory requirements, such as sustainability, taxation and privacy.

As the world revolves around the buyer, channels, demand signals, supply chains, payment options, enablers, and big data will converge to create what Constellation coined in 2011 as Matrix Commerce. Matrix Commerce spans across disciplines as people, process, and technologies continue to transform today's commerce models. The goal is to deliver campaign to commerce with a customer-centric point of view.
