About hybris

The future of commerce. Today.
hybris helps businesses on every continent sell more goods, services and digital content through every touch point, channel and device.

hybris believes every business, whether selling to consumers or to other businesses, needs a single view of its customers, products and orders, and that its customers deserve a single view of the business. To achieve this, hybris delivers state-of-the-art master data management and unified commerce processes for all channels. We believe successful companies demand – and we will deliver – technology that is
  • agile to support limitless innovation,
  • efficient to drive the best TCO, and
  • scalable and extensible to be the last commerce platform they will ever need.
Where we are today
hybris was founded in 1997 with a simple mission: to create superbly engineered commerce solutions. Over the years, the necessary ingredients for that have evolved – multichannel, open standards, very high performance, data centricity, customer centricity – and so our company and products have evolved. But our mission has remained the same. We are, above all, a great commerce technology company.
Where we are going
In the last few years, that focus has delivered tremendous success and growth. Both Gartner and Forrester have ranked us a “leader” and placed us among the top two or three commerce platforms in the world. We have expanded well beyond our central Europe roots to operations in 15 countries, accelerated in 2011 by the acquisition of another highly ranked on-demand commerce provider in North America, iCongo, which gave us a strong presence in the U.S. and Canada.
We now serve over 500 customers, including some of the most-recognized companies in the world: global B2B brands as well as consumer brands. Most recently, we have begun a strong push to serve telcos around the world, as well as digital goods and content companies in software, games, media and publishing. We are now by far the fastest-growing major commerce platform company – our compound annual growth rate since 2009 is 83%.
Philosophy and Culture
As much as we are a company built on better technology, we are also a company built on a philosophy of partners and a culture of innovation.
From the beginning, we have relied on partners who are deeply knowledgeable in their industry specialties and very close to our customers to lead most implementations. We can now count among our 200+ partners some of the most widely respected names in the industry, around the globe.
Finally, our culture. It runs deep and drives everything. We asked our employees to name what they most liked about hybris. The heat map here shows their un-edited response: we are enthusiastic, open-minded, ambitious, committed, responsible, creative, fun, friendly, flexible and passionate. Most of all, we’re innovative. And our culture and policies are focused on you – the customer.


Great technology. Great partners. Great culture. Focus on the customer. We believe this is the future of commerce. hybris is the future of commerce. Today.
