Can We Use Magento Commerce as an Enterprise E-Commerce Platform

Are you planning to roll out an enterprise e-commerce platform? If so, you are certainly on the right track to leverage a wide spectrum of benefits. Yes, you can expect to get high traffic, important customer data, and several orders that need to be processed.

What I mean is enterprise e-commerce will allow you to get a dream start. But wait for a moment. Did you consider one major player playing a pivotal role in building a strong inning? Yes, I’m talking about Magento Commerce, which has become a popular choice among e-commerce owners.

Research says that Magento nearly powers 1.2% of the internet and 12% of all e-commerce sites. Furthermore, about 2,50,000 online merchants use the Magento e-commerce platform.

But remember you are operating an enterprise e-commerce platform in the age of digital transformation and cutthroat competition.

Which is more appropriate: MagentoOpensource or Magento Commerce

It is important for you to know the major difference between Magentoopensource and Magento ecommerce solutions.

MagentoOpensource, also known as Magento Community, is basically a free version of Magento that you can easily download, customize and self-host.

Magento Commerce is available in two versions namely Magento Enterprise Cloud and Magento Enterprise. Now, both these versions have been combined to form Magento Commerce, a subscription-based version providing cloud hosting facilities.

Now that you are acquainted with the difference between the two Magento versions, it’s time to consider the important elements before choosing Magento for enterprise e-commerce.

Consider the ongoing cost

If you are going with MagentoOpensource, you don’t need to pay the annual subscription fees, unlike Magento Commerce. But it does not mean that you can enjoy all the free benefits. Yes, of course, you have to go for regular upgrades and integrate new features to enhance your e-commerce functionality.

Besides that, there are various other hidden costs such as updating the security, which isn’t an easy task. You may require professional help unless you are a Magento expert.Also visit https://www.jbklutse.com/

Managing technology 

Magento Commerce is based on the traditional approach, which focuses on downloading and customizing the platform. Hence, it may consume your time but also require technical knowledge as well.  Plus, you have to invest your money as well, if you want to custom-built and get enterprise-grade e-commerce.

Is Magento restricted to e-commerce solutions

We have to ask this question. Most people have the notion that Magento for e-commerce is a stellar platform, but does it fit into the shoes of enterprise e-commerce? With competition exceeding, you need more than an e-commerce platform.

The customers have become much smarter. This means you just cannot convince them on the basis of good website reviews and product ranges. Customers want a more real-time experience of the product with AR and VR technologies. They demand relevant videos, documentation, and third-party genuine reviews.

In short, they are looking for an omnichannel experience and Magento Commerce is ticking on that corner. In addition, it also helps you to monitor and analyze your e-commerce website performance and gather all-important customer data. You can even implement your ad and email marketing campaigns to drive more sales.

The support system 

Magento was facing issues with its support services having only 1300 open and ongoing support tickets. You had to wait for some time to receive assistance if there was an issue.

Now, with the progress of time, Magento has upgraded its support system, providing faster solutions to the problems. But having said that, you will have to pay a premium amount to avail support.

What about updates and migrations 

The next vital question that comes to mind is what about the updates and migration process. You must be aware that come June 2020, Magento will stop supporting version 1.0. Hence, you have to migrate to a higher version now or sometime later.

Additionally, if you are planning to re-platform it completely instead of migration, it’s going to be an intricate task. And this is not something that you can do yourself. In fact, many Magento developers have already shared their experiences regarding the challenges and difficulty levels.

Choose Magento Open or Closed-source

Magento is a popular open-source platform that allows users to customize the codes. But you may have to face a few issues when you are updating or migrating the e-commerce platform to a higher version. The challenges are more associated with back-end implementation and re-platforming.

So, this is where the closed-source enterprise e-commerce platform will come into play. It is a more viable solution to build a custom e-commerce website. But you still have to approach a Magento Development Company to do the work on a professional note.

Concluding note 

As you have explored the options, you can make a decision, whether Magento Commerce is the right platform for enterprise e-commerce. The ultimate choice is yours. You can decide depending on your requirements for the project.
