Shaping eCommerce with IronPlane
Future of eCommerce series: Kuba Zwolinski
Show Notes

Kuba is the CEO of Snowdog, a unified commerce agency that's had a long-standing partnership with IronPlane.

Kuba started his career as a developer and has worked extensively with Magento -- he even served on the board of the @magento association.

In his interview with Tim, he talks about how:

- Eventually, the “e” will be removed from eCommerce
- Companies need to place even more focus on unifying the shopper experience
- AI and ML technologies are great, but some businesses will also want to use no-code solutions 
- After four or five years, tech debt can become a serious problem and blocker to growth
- Marketplaces are an interesting, evolving field
- Composable makes sense for many businesses, but it’s way over-complicated for others
