A colleague here being another business. Magnolia is on its way to being a 'good' product but the 6.2 implementation simply isn't there yet (6.2.26 as of this writing). The admincentral UI could use a complete overhaul to be better streamlined for devs and content editors (the two who actually use it).

In B2B scenarios for the primary orders, commerce cloud fits very well and have background services readily usable. In Searching it should give some more configuration based cockpit for the advance search configuration and custom attribute searching. B2B content management and promotions management is very easy from business perspective and helps to reduce the dependency on the development team.

While it doesn't seem to work when changes extend beyond the method body (i.e., adding methods), it remediates the pain of long startup times. Read full review Its structure which is based on the characteristics of Java Spring is very good, so you can better manage your tools and it is reflected quickly and very perceptively. All the information stored is divided in an organized way and in the corresponding place according to its area; this allows us to locate it without any problem when looking for some data. Simply, this software is very easy to use, it does not have unnecessary tools, and it does not have any specific function; all its functions are optimal.

Having a history of modifications not only at the page level but also at the Content Apps level would be very useful.

I see two main pains: 1. A new user need training to be able even to start using the platform, the onboarding is difficult 2. The platform needs a server with a relevant amount of memory to run properly, the dependency on the memory is really high

I gave [it] 7/10 only because of the loading time of pages. Otherwise, I think it deserves an 8. Normally this is not an issue per [se] but considering the rating matrix and as I have been asked to honestly write about it. Yes, the page loading times could be improved.

Prior to using Magnolia as an enterprise CMS solution, different teams leveraged different website platforms including
, and others. While these other platforms may be slightly more user friendly to the content editor, they don't offer nearly the same amount of customization and digital best practices out of the box that are customizable by web development teams like Magnolia does. The other solutions may work better for a quicker/simpler web implementation without technical resources but don't have the depth and breadth of capability and functionality that Magnolia has and fall flat.

SAP Commerce Cloud has tight integration with the backend SAP allowing for our specific business requirements to be tied into the platform. The site user friendliness was intuitive and received nothing but positive feedback from the user community. Data integration and security were another key factors. The overall cost to support and maintain utilizing internal resources as much as possible and only supplement when needed.

Generally, I've been very happy with SAP Commerce Cloud. I feel like it's a good solution for enterprise-level companies that do a significant volume of e-commerce. I do wish that the CMS was easier to use and that it was easier to integrate with CRM systems.
