The overall e-commerce segment is expected to grow to $370 billion by 2017 (according to Forrester) and technology providers of all types are looking to continue to capitalize on future increases.
GoDaddy recently announced that open-source e-commerce platform Spree Commerce will be available in the spring of 2014, joining the technology provider's range of existing tools and services ranging from domain names to website builder offering.
“GoDaddy is embracing open ecosystems and communities in open source. This commitment not only allows GoDaddy to be a leader in the hosting and domains industries by adopting and contributing to the latest innovations in open source, but also expand our large-scale systems expertise,” said GoDaddy CTO Elissa Murphy. “Over the next year, GoDaddy will adopt and contribute new innovations focused on the VSB (very small business) customer to these communities.”
