Features/Approaches related to Personalization​

SAP Commerce Cloud supports personalization of the website’s content using the following three features/approaches.

  1. CMS Restrictions​
  2. Personalization Module​
  3. Intelligent Selling Services for SAP Commerce Cloud​

We'll look at each of them.

CMS Restriction

SmartEdit allows us to add CMS restrictions to variation pages or components so that relevant content is displayed to specific customers.​ Out-of-the-box, we can create and edit product, category, time, user/user group restrictions in SmartEdit.​

Let’s find out how to do that in this video.​

Personalization Module

The Personalization module provides an integrated, user-friendly way of building experiences that are relevant to targeted customers. ​This module enables grouping customers into one or more segments via custom implementation or big data analysis, then uses SmartEdit to serve members of a segment custom content, personalized search profiles and promotions.​

The complete content of the personalization module is however out of the scope of this intermediate course and will be included in the upcoming advanced level course. But you can get a brief introduction on how to use the personalization mode in SmartEdit in the following video.​
