Adobe and Magento Confirmed that Adobe had acquired Magento Commerce for $1.68 billion.
Magento started its journey from open source and hence attracted plenty of customers
Magento Commerce we all know Cloud Platform which has ultimate functionalities like order management and predictive intelligence and thousands of Pre-built Magento Extensions from the Partners for Shipping, Payment, Tax, Checkout, Customer Experience, Shopping Behavior and a lot more.
Adobe to Enhance commerce into its Experience Cloud to enhance B2B and B2C shopping experiences for the industries like Retail, Wholesale, Manufacturing, and the Public Sector.
The expected outcome after this deal is a single cloud platform that will let developer design the look and feel of an e-commerce website, manage content flows to said the site, take payments, analyze its performance, pipe in ads and measure their effectiveness too.
What we think Is adobe will combine Magento commerce offering with its experience cloud services. It will be a combination of advertising and analytics tools.
Everybody has a question that what will happen about Magento Community edition which Is open source available to developers and merchants to enhance its capabilities to next level. To answer you that question, Adobe has the plan to change the things around the way Magento is available right now for us, but they said they would share more details when the deal is about to close later this year. They must be planning for a whole new set of customers, and we hope Adobe keep the open source version alive so we can work out.
