We have a lot of discussions around Magento market fit and how the customer type has changed since the move to Magento 2 and Adobe’s acquisition. There is a lot of negative sentiments towards Magento as a platform, a common view being the total cost of ownership is always much higher than on leading SaaS vendors like Shopify and Big Commerce. Given our platform agnostic outlook, we like to stress test this type of assumption because every platform has its place in the market and relative strengths and weaknesses.

In this episode, we sit down with Lewis Sellers, a highly experienced Magento developer and MD of Pinpoint, a respected Adobe Commerce specialist agency. We ask Lewis where he sees Magento fitting in the ecommerce platform marketplace now, for what type of business and use case it’s still the right platform and how to address known issues such as the complexity of support and maintenance and handling upgrades.

Key discussion points

  • Where does Magento sit in the ecommerce marketplace?
  • How can the cost & complexity of maintenance be sensibly reduced?
  • Will there be any major architectural changes to improve performance?
  • Where is Adobe headed with its ecommerce product roadmap?
