What Is The Future of Magento 2 E-commerce Platform?
When Magento 2 was first released, most of the e-commerce store owners and developers doubt about its stability and adaptability in comparison to the previous version. Therefore, the majority of the Magento e-commerce businesses choose to keep running on Magento 1 instead of facing potential risks.
Nevertheless, as Magento 2 continues releasing many updated versions with plenty of amazing features and functionalities day by day, Magento 2 migration is immensely worth our consideration.
Here are some Magento experts’ points of view towards the future of Magento 2 that we have gathered in September 2017:
According to Aiden Murphy — CTO at Tigren E-commerce Solutions: “It has been a remarkable journey for Magento 2 since it was released and we see a myriad of new clients signing up for it. Thanks to the continuous development and acquisitions, Magento has once again proved their ability to innovate and deliver, making their platform a top choice for both enterprise customers and small-and-medium e-commerce businesses as well”.
At the same time, Talesh Seeparsan — Founder at Bit79 said that “I see a lot of very talented developers and agencies not completely happy with their ability to work with Magento 2 as quickly as they have been doing with Magento 1. It almost seems like they’re all experiencing the same 5 stages of grief I did when picking up Magento 2 the first time and coming to terms with not being a rockstar on new platform. It’s not ideal but I think collectively we’re all started finding our legs under us again and starting to push the platform in new ways again. Stop me if I sound like a Cylon but I think this has all happened before with Magento 1 and it probably will happen again”.
Another idea from Ruben Rodriguez — Frontend developer at Interactive: “The community is making the project very mature, clearing up all the problems of launching the platform, especially the concept problems as far as front end is concerned. Improvements in the enterprise and the whole platform itself are focusing on the whole project to major development which will complicate the transition to small e-commerce”.
Meanwhile, Nenad Andrakovic — Frontend developer at Inchoo believed that: “Once time we managed to rescue bad system (Magento 1 was also bad at the beginning), we will do it again. There is no point in negativity, we are all aware of the issues but I think that currently negativity overpowered enthusiasts and atmosphere around the platform is not good. We as developers and companies should make decisions whether we will continue to enhance Magento development. If the answer is yes, then we need to get serious and start helping each other and Magento itself.
Final opinion from Ray Bogman — CTO at SupportDesk: “The future of Magento e-commerce is upon us. Where we see B2C being mature, B2B sees the dawn of day. We are just starting the next phase, new platform, new technologies. Learn, share, build”.
