Product Details

What is Adobe Commerce (Magento Commerce)?

Adobe Commerce (Magento Commerce) provides companies with a platform to manage, personalize, and optimize the commerce experience across every touch point and across the customer journey. ACC is built on Magento Commerce Pro and is integrated with Adobe Experience Manager.

It was originally developed as an open-source eCommerce content management solution by Varien, Inc. Varien was acquired by eBay in 2012. Magento Open Source (formerly Community Edition) is still available for developers and tech-savvy merchants. Adobe also offers small business and mid-enterprise level solutions that offer cloud services and integrations for business intelligence and order management tools.

Visitor data is used to segment customers and personalize the shopping experience with targeted promotions, suggestions and coupons. Sites generate SEO-friendly URLs, a Google site map, and customized meta tags to help products get discovered. Site-wide or segmented and targeted recommendations are generated from rule-based product-relations logic, to increase up-sells and cross-sells, and interactive features including "likes" and tweets allow visitors to broadcast their choices and create buzz around products.

The paid versions of Adobe Commerce are extensive and include product integrations such as business intelligence, order management, and an extensions marketplace.

Well suited for any ecommerce enterprises that need total flexibility. Adobe Commerce allows full access to source code so any change is possible and you aren't limited as per other solutions. However it does mean you need access to technical capability or financial resources to engage an external vendor.

If you're a big company and you don't need specific features i suggest Adobe Commerce (Magento Commerce), because out of the box you can find a solid ecommerce with a lot of basic functions. But if you need a lot of specific features i suggest to avoid Adobe Commerce (Magento Commerce) and move forward with a taylor made ecommerce.

Magento Commerce, part of Adobe Commerce Cloud, is a great tool to build out online stores and end-to-end commerce solutions, including procurement and supply chain processes. It simplifies the addition of stock items and allows the maintenance of these items on the store to be carried out similar to what a content management system provides. However, Magento Commerce, part of Adobe Commerce Cloud, does not work well in scenarios where millions of buyers would try to buy the same item simultaneously, which can happen with big product launches and rare items in a store. Basically, it does not scale well in terms of performance.

Ultimately, if a company is looking for a solid industry-known E-Commerce system, Magento Commerce does exactly what it's intended to do. The headaches start when your company wants to start getting granular in customizations of the platform to meet specific business needs (which every company eventually has). This becomes a major issue down the road when trying to upgrade said customizations as the core software updates.

Magento fits well mid-high revenue project starting from 3M and above. It's not a cart but a more complex platform. The best choice for multi-brand projects and the electronic industry should be the best match due to product concept. The cloud version is suggested for most projects and doesn't require much technical effort.

A large supplier in the lighting industry that has a high volume of sales that is increasing each month is a perfect example of one of our web design clients who we recommended and implemented Magento Commerce Cloud for. Generally speaking, when an online store is predicted to grow exponentially they will need the added hosted resources like security, redundancy, and speed that Magento Commerce Cloud provides. However, if you have a more complete IT department including hosting and infrastructure, then you might get away with the community edition or a less-modern shopping cart platform.

Magento is great for very simple subscription-based e-commerce models. However, the moment you add any complexity, Magento isn't the solution for you. Improvements have been very slow-going, and the upgrade from 1.8 to 2.0 really set our operations team back a few years in terms of functionality.

Magento is well-suited for any business that needs scalability and manages many products or uses data feeds to ingest product information. Magento might be less useful for a small business with a catalog of only 10-15 products.

Magento is great for organizations and individuals that place a high value on personalization and ownership. Although it comes at a great cost, Magento allows users to personalize/customize their e-commerce sites as much as they want and Magento allows users to run Magento on their own servers. Magento is however more difficult to pick up than some other e-commerce platforms, so it may not be ideal for those who have limited time, energy and money to spend on their e-commerce site.

This is a great tool for people that have a lot of experience coding and a lot of resources dedicated to the back-end customization. For a business user though, it is not intuitive and is a pretty big headache since we are required to go to IT so much. The marketplace can be a great place to find add-ons, but you have to be careful there as well. There are add-ons that are no longer supported by developers, so you can choose some that render useless.

Magento Commerce Cloud works great for us, an ecommerce company. Any other company (of decent size) should consider Magento. They offer many features right out of the box and allow a ton of customization as well as easy integration with third party vendors. I could imagine that if you were a smaller company, Magento would likely be overkill for your online store.

It's good for companies who want to build and manage a more sophisticated and comprehensive website. You may want to have a dedicated IT team that manages it though. If you are a small business that just started a website, you can start with a cheaper and less complicated solution.

If you have complex requirements, need flexibility and like having control and access to the code base Magento can be an awesome choice. If you are on a limited budget, are not a developer or can't hire a developer or if you can live with the out of the box features from a smaller SAS platform Magento may not be a great fit.

For large-scale e-commerce websites on a dedicated server with a good web developer on staff/on call, Magento is an excellent option.

For small scale e-commerce, or starter website, Magento is not the best option, and will leave your pulling your hair out.

If you have a strong development team who is familiar with Magento (or willing to learn its nuances), it is a very powerful e-commerce tool that can accomplish a lot for your brand. If you don't have someone (or multiple 'someones') that can be dedicated to Magento development/management on a daily basis, you will be very frustrated and it will not be a viable solution. Other tools in the platform are fairly easy to use, but without backend support from a knowledgeable developer, you will not be successful with Magento.

Magento is great for anyone looking for a shopping cart and is selling products. I have steered away from it for a single services company, since it is more geared towards product sales. It does an amazing job out of the box and the administrative management is simple. 5 gold stars.

Magento has been a reliable platform that allows for a considerable selection of app or plug-in choices while also integrating with internally developed solutions. There are many who finds its structure limiting and clunky, but for commodities and part search specific industries, it fits the bill nicely. Our IT/Dev team makes good use of its organizational options but does have to spend a significant amount of time building some of our necessary functions into the platform and continually keeping them up to date with a well-structured sprint schedule.

I would recomment Magento for someone who needs a store for multiple countries very quickly, who will manage lots of stock and who will have huge pockets for buying services (design, modifications, etc.) and plugins. You'll need them.

Besides that, I wouldn't recommend it. It eats servers, it's hard to maintain, hard to start with, hard to modify... there are many sweet alternatives if you don't want to be a HUGE megastore. WooCommerce, Shopify... even PrestaShop (which I tried a couple years ago and didn't like much) seems better suited.

It's well suited for a big organisation who needs a bespoke solution and a strong and reliable e-commerce platform. However, for a smaller one with not that many others, it's very hard to learn and use, as well as make changes without the need of a developer, so I would not recommend it.
