Confusion in cockpit ng and other options

I read through some explanations, but i am still confused. Cockpit ng is just another basic cockpit for backoffice stuff? and before that we used another cockpit? And what is HMC based off then? I assume that backoffice is everything related to "admin" work

    Hi Nikolaus,

    So the Backoffice (aka. Next Generation Cockpit Framework) is the Landscape where all Backend business tools would reside in the future. The Administration Cockpit is one Cockpit in the Backoffice which is the replacement for the hMC as of 6.0, however the Backoffice's scope is more than an hMC replacement. The Backoffice Framework provides UI building components called Widgets which you can wire together to build your own Cockpit.

    Other cockpits in the Backoffice includes the Customer Support Cockpit, OMS Cockpit and a few more. In a future release you will also have the new PCM Cockpit inside the Backoffice.

    You can find here the documentation to for the 5.x Version, and here is the 6.0 one.

    Please also note that we now refer to the Cockpit NG as the Backoffice Framework to avoid further confusion

    Hello Nikolaus,

    Cockpit NG is a new hybris backoffice framework. The Backoffice extension is based on CockpitNG framework whereas hmc uses the webchips technology.

    hmc is deprecated from version 6.0 and is replaced by backoffice.

    and ... Yes. Backoffice allows you do the administration activities just like hmc did.
