"As a Premier Partner of IBM and the first company certified by IBM to host and manage IBM WebSphere Commerce, we are excited to partner with CoreMedia and add CoreMedia LiveContext to our solution portfolio," said Jerry Lewis, VP, Smarter Commerce Practice at SysIQ. "Together we help meet the complex needs of today's businesses as they work to improve their e-commerce and brand strategies."

Many online stores are focused on the transactional mechanics of the shopping experience, yet to engage, drive sales and build loyalty with today's shoppers, an immersive experience is required. Online product catalogues must evolve to include greater visual diversity, broader use of rich media, product aligned storytelling and deeper social engagement.

"The traditional methods of managing brands and sites are disconnected and frequently cause friction and confusion for shoppers," said Glenn Conradt, VP of Global Marketing at CoreMedia. "Together CoreMedia and SysIQ will provide their customers with stronger capabilities to address the emotional and inspirational drivers of e-commerce. The end-to-end experiential commerce solution will enable our customers to transform their online stores and provide shoppers with a better, more visually appealing and immersive experience."
