What is Magento?

Magento is known for being a powerful and flexible open-source e-commerce platform. It is one of the most widely used e-commerce solutions globally. Since its inception, the platform has offered a robust, scalable, and future-proof solution for businesses of all sizes. With thousands of extensions and features, it's possible to customize webshops exactly to your wishes and needs.

Magento was previously offered in two editions: Magento Enterprise Edition (EE) and Magento Community Edition (CE). Today, following Adobe's acquisition of Magento, Magento CE has become Magento Open Source (also known as Magento 2), while Magento EE has become Adobe Commerce.

Adobe chose to rename Magento CE to Magento Open Source to clarify that their open-source edition remains available to all businesses and developers without licensing costs or restrictions. Magento 2 introduces several improvements and new features compared to the previous version, providing a more advanced and user-friendly experience for webshop owners.

At itpilot, we have primarily developed webshops in what was formerly known as Magento Community Edition, as this is the license-free version, and our developers can customize the features to our customers' needs. Therefore, we continue to develop solutions in Magento Open Source/Magento 2.

What is Adobe Commerce?

Adobe acquired Magento in 2018, and in 2019, they launched Adobe Commerce, replacing Magento Enterprise Edition (EE). With Adobe Commerce, you get all the features available with Magento Open Source and many more. Adobe Commerce offers more built-in options, including Live Search, complete B2B tools and features, integrated analytics tools, and more.

Adobe Commerce is a SaaS solution, meaning there are license costs associated with this webshop solution. The license costs vary from webshop to webshop and are based on factors such as the webshop's annual revenue and your specific requirements and needs.

For more detailed information on licensing costs and benefits of Adobe Commerce, contact us or read more on Adobe's official website.

Which one to choose?

Deciding which solution is best for your webshop can be challenging. It largely depends on your needs, requirements for the webshop, and your budget. Therefore, we have made a brief comparison between Magento 2/Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce below.

Magento Open Source

Open source

Magento is an open-source platform, which means it is free to use and can be customized according to your needs and preferences. You have access to a wide range of extensions via the Magento Marketplace, and you can also develop your own customizations and extensions as needed.

Access to basic features

With Magento Open Source, you get access to a wide range of basic features, including security features. Although there is a solid foundation, there may be limitations regarding certain integrations. However, you can develop custom integrations and modules for the system.

Community support

As a user of Magento Open Source, you have access to a large community of developers and experts. Although official technical support is not provided, you can seek help from the Magento Community or seek assistance from professional partners like us.

No licensing costs

Magento Open Source is a cost-free solution that gives you full control over your webshop, as you handle the hosting yourself. This means you don't have to worry about licensing costs and can customize and manage your webshop according to your needs and preferences.

Third-party integration possibilities

You have the option to integrate your Magento Open Source webshop with a wide range of third-party applications and tools, including various analytics tools and other useful functions.

Adobe Commerce

All basic modules and more

Adobe Commerce comes with all the basic modules that are also part of Magento Open Source. In addition, the platform offers a wide range of advanced modules and features that can be customized to your specific needs.

Advanced, integrated modules

With Adobe Commerce, you get access to advanced and integrated modules that can help with everything from marketing and sales to inventory management and customer service. These modules are designed to optimize the e-commerce experience and increase the efficiency of your webshop.

Complete package solution  

Adobe Commerce is a comprehensive e-commerce platform with advanced features that can be integrated with other Adobe services. This integration enables improved personalization of the webshop and a deeper understanding of both customers and business processes.

SaaS solution

Adobe Commerce is a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution, which means there is a licensing fee to use the platform. The price varies and is typically based on a percentage of your webshop's annual revenue. As a result, you don't need to handle hosting or maintenance of the system, as this is handled by Adobe.

Official support

Adobe Commerce offers 24/7 official support, where you can get help with technical questions, onboarding, and any other challenges you may encounter. With this dedicated support, you are assured of professional assistance when you need it.

Magento 2 or Adobe Commerce?

When deciding which of the two platforms to develop your webshop on, there are several factors to consider beyond the technical differences between Magento Open Source/Magento 2 and Adobe Commerce. The size of the company, needs, budget, and technical skills all play a significant role.

In general, Magento Open Source/Magento 2 is suitable for smaller and medium-sized businesses with tighter budgets. While development costs can be significant depending on the complexity of your needs, operating costs are often lower compared to Adobe Commerce.

Adobe Commerce is typically suitable for large companies or companies with complex requirements for their webshop. Although the licensing costs and initial costs are higher than Magento 2, Adobe Commerce offers a wider range of features and AI-based tools that can help create a more advanced and personalized e-commerce experience.
