E-Commerce WebSite Using ASP.NET 4.0

The project was to take an open source, .NET ECommerce platform and customize it to replace a custom made ecommerce Website. The open source platform chosen was nopCommerce for a variety of reasons including the fact that it was based on .NET 4.0, was written in the C# language, and contained many of the features needed out of the box.

Since the system to be replaced was custom made, there was some special functionality that could not be obtained of the shelf. We had already been maintaining the old software for some time, so we already knew what it was doing and we were able to customize an approach to implement nopCommerce without major changes.

The second part of the project was to migrate the content and inventory from the old system to the new. For this we built some Automated Tools to extract, translate and load (ETL) the data between the two systems. Some content required modifications before being entered into the new system. For this we used a team of data entry resources to make the changes and enter the content manually into the new system.

This was followed up by a complete review by the Quality Assurance Team working hand and hand with the customer’s team to ensure that they were ready to switch over to the new system.
