Sitecore, is best known as a Content Management System (CMS) vendor, which they call the Sitecore Experience Platform. They do, however, also offer a mid-range ecommerce platform, called Sitecore Experience Commerce, albeit one that does not attract many customers who are not already users of the core CMS tools.
