What are the differences between these two solutions:
Is there a whitepaper or some document comparing the two solutions from a customer point of view. When should a customer decide for one or the other?
There are two variants of SAP Commerce Cloud:
1. SAP Commerce Cloud v1 (CCv1 or SAP Commerce Cloud on SAP Infrastructure)
2. SAP Commerce Cloud v2 (CCv2 or Commerce Cloud in the Public Cloud)
You can check https://firstname.lastname@example.org/two-clouds-in-practice-a-comparison-of-sap-commerce-cloud-v1-and-v... for a good comparison between these two. There is another one at https://hybrismart.com/2018/05/20/a-detailed-comparison-oracle-commerce-cloud-and-on-premise-aka-atg...
When we say 'SAP Commerce', we simply mean Hybris On-Premise software package.
Choosing between On-Premise and Cloud variants is more linked to the organization's IT strategy and roadmap than the comparison between their capabilities. You won't find much difference in the two variants but the way they are deployed and managed varies by far. On-Premise and Cloud have their own pros and cons and an online search will give you hundreds of links explaining it e.g. https://www.cequens.com/story-hub/cloud-vs.-on-premise-solutions-the-pros-and-cons
There is no difference. At certain point of time the product has been renamed from "SAP Commerce" to "SAP Commerce Cloud" 🙂 Like it has been renamed from Hybris to SAP Hybris to SAP Commerce... you see, it is more a marketing thing.
You can deploy "SAP Commerce Cloud" as on-premise solution as well.
