HCL Commerce earns 8 medals, including a Gold!
  The Paradigm B2B Enterprise and Mid-market reports are live! This in-depth vendor analysis is a dedicated assessment of the top ecommerce platforms in the B2B space led by Andy Hoar, a long-time analyst and influencer in the B2B ecommerce space. Andy and his team conducted extensive research including live demonstrations with Q&A, interviews with customers and more to ensure a comprehensive and accurate reflection of the platforms’ capabilities.
