Abstract

Consumers shifted their spending to the web due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. Businesses and organizations that once mapped digital strategy with careful planning over a transition period, now forced to scale their initiatives in a matter of days. In this regard, we are motivated by the need to develop a scalable, highly available, resilient, secure, and cost-effective e-commerce web application for demonstrating how cloud services can be leveraged for implementing such applications.

This paper is a part of the aforementioned web application development project, titled “A cloud-based e-commerce storefront prototype for SMEs in Oman”. In this paper, we discuss the system considerations, components of implementation, and the schematic design of the proposed software solution.

This paper provides meaningful guidelines for companies that want to adopt cloud-based E-commerce web application to bring their products and services online without much upfront cost or initial investment.
