  • For customers focusing on increasing stability
  • A more stable upgrade path and decreased bugs

Commerce Q3 '23 roadmap

Understanding the Optimizely Commerce Product Roadmap

 

At Optimizely, we value clarity and transparency into what we're building and why. To do this, we publicly share a majority of our Commerce product roadmap. In the roadmap, we have categorized our work into three groups: Committed, Planned, and Considered. These definitions represent levels of assurance around what products we will deliver quarterly. 

 

Committed items are features that we are devoted to delivering within the quarter. Planned items are features we're targeting to deliver in the quarter, but are less likely than Committed items. Considered items are features we have acknowledged and are considering but may not be worked on or delivered in the quarter. 

 

This roadmap is dynamic, therefore, it is intended for informational purposes only. The roadmap is not binding and should not be relied upon in making any purchasing or development decisions. We reserve the right to revise this roadmap at any time without notice.
