When you take a fast look at the sites that avail themselves of the use of open source e- commerce platforms and standards, and you review the available online information that may lead a person to anticipate that the features that are present in the leading open source solutions are the same as those that are found in many of the other commercial applications, you begin to see some differences and similarities in the two. Open source can provide an effective foundation which will enable a focus on differentiation. Although, open source e-commerce applications are not fully developed compared to many commercial applications, open source solutions have the ability to enable a companies to focus on differentiating features over a period of time by providing them with core and commodity needs—such as basic promotions, site templates, as well as basic browse, search and shopping cart features. Differentiation in this form has led to great business results and amazing customer service experiences, even though the flexibility and extendibility may come at a great cost to the company.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
