What is Adobe Commerce?
Adobe Commerce is the combination of Magento and Adobe Experience Cloud. In 2019 Adobe announced the official launch of Adobe Commerce. This merge is essentially a fully managed, cloud based version of the Magento platform that seamlessly runs with the pre-existing Adobe Experience Cloud features. Such as; Adobe Analytics Cloud, Adobe Marketing Cloud, Adobe Advertising Cloud, and Adobe Experience Manager.
To put more simply: “Adobe Commerce is a bundled offering that provides companies with a flexible and scalable end-to-end platform to manage, personalise, and optimise the commerce experience across every touch point and across the entire customer journey.”
What are the features of Adobe Commerce?
- Hosting- As previously mentioned Adobe Commers is cloud hosted. This means that the duty is still on the merchant to make updates and handle the website maintenance.
- Headless Offering- Allowing separation of the front end and back end in an e-Commerce application. This allows you the freedom of expression to build your website however and whatever way you want to.
- Analytics- One of the benefits of Adobe Commerce is that it integrates with Adobe analytics. This enables businesses to have a greater understanding of their data.
- Flexibility- Since merging with Magento, Adobe Commerce has the accessibility to be highly customisable to whatever specifications you have.
- Omnichannel- Having an omnichannel strategy means that you can reach as many customers or potential customers as possible, whichever platform they are wishing to shop on.
Who is Adobe Commerce right for?
