Platform vs Commerce

I am new to Hybris. I have installed Commerce suite 5.7. I want to ask how are platform and commerce different from each other?As they say there are 2 parts: Platform and Commerce. What functionality platform offers and what extra does commerce offers. Platform is the base on which Order, Commerce, Content, Channel are built. I want to know the difference in the functionalities offered by Platform and Commerce

    Hi Diyansh

    "From a business point of view, the hybris Commerce Suite is divided into individual packages, such as Commerce, Content, Channel, and Orders. These packages are bundles of functionality assembled for a certain range of business functionality. All of these packages rely on more basic functionality provided by the hybris Platform. While the hybris Platform can run without any package, no package can run without the hybris Platform" from Architecture Overview

    I think you may already read the link. And what is more, I would like to suggest you to go through the following two trail which is for beginner:

    1. hybris 5 Developer Training Trails 5.7 - Part I - Core

    2. hybris 5 Developer Training Trails 5.7 - Part II - Commerce

    From my point of view, I will say that platform offer basic functionality such as "type system","Impex","cronJobs","Events" and so on, and if you want to build a state-of-the-art e-commerce application you will need to build a new customization/extension based on platform.

    Thanks

    Yan
