Business Analysis – Analyse the business goals and strategies before building the connection. Identify your customers, identify the integration touchpoints, and plan out the alignment of everything that matches the business goals.
Technical Analysis – While synchronising data from both salesforce commerce cloud and Salesforce, make sure what information is to be synchronized. Analyse the information that needs to be synchronized with the API provided with the platform. Check if any information that cannot be supported by the API needs to be transferred.
Estimation – Depending on the size of data decide on the resources type and the cost that will be incurred by it. Also calculate the timeline for the complete process to take place.
Development – Next stage of the process in development phase following the estimate. If you have salesforce commerce cloud website, the cartridge installation and configuration is necessary for each salesforce commerce cloud website. The salesforce package(SFDC) is then installed and configured. The SFDC community needs to be customized and CSSuite is then installed and configured in salesforce commerce cloud. CSS iFrame is next added to make orders by the service team on behalf of customers.

Support – After the integration and implementation, a support phase is vital to keep in track with the proper functioning of the application until the support period allows.
