Magento Open Source 2.3 Is Finally Out with a Bucketload of New Features
According to Magento’s website, merchants are using Magento’s eCommerce platform three times more than other competitive platforms like Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce. Regarded as the best eCommerce platform for online selling, merchants realize Magento costs 50% less in terms of Total Cost of Ownership.
Released in March 2008, Magento serves 9% of the overall global eCommerce market share. It supports both MVC and OOP architecture, however, one of the cons of Magento is that merchants need to hire Magento developers or must have a Magento development team to update or modify stores according to their business requirements.
Many popular names like Pepe Jeans, Huawei, and Liverpool F.C., have developed their websites on the Magento platform, as it comes with a variety of tools used for monitoring, analytics and conversion optimization.
At Magento’s annual conference that was held seven months ago, Adobe acquired Magento for $1.68 billion and the company also announced the first integration that brings analytics and Adobe’s Experience Cloud’s personalization features to Magento’s Commerce Cloud. This is great news for users.
For its users, Magento has introduced its new version, Magento 2.3, which is loaded with amazing features. Let’s see the features you can avail of as part of Magento Development Services:
Progressive Web App
Built to take advantage of modern technology features, Progressive Web Apps will be the future of eCommerce, as they provide the unique feel of native apps. To deliver the advantages of PWA for eCommerce store owners, Magento also released PWA studio that includes a set of tools, which support the development, deployment, and maintenance of progressive web apps.
The immediate advantages for Magento store-owners is that it will increase front-end performance and will on board new Magento front-end developers much faster than usual.
Page Builder, introduced in Magento 2.3, is a drag-and-drop visual content editing tool, allowing customization of the front view of the store without writing any code. Being a powerful, intuitive, and user-friendly tool, Page Builder is a rewrite of Blue Foot CMS, which was acquired by Magento for delivering better Content Management service to store owners.
Magento 2.3 supports GraphQL Magento development services, which is an API technology enabling Progressive Web Apps to pull and push information from the online storefront using data packets. It is the best replacement for REST and SOAP web APIs, which are used for frontend development.
Multi-Store Inventory (MSI)
After this release, store-owners can easily manage the inventory in various multi sources with Multi-Store Inventory (MSI).
In addition to managing inventory, store-owners also track inventory levels to manage the distribution of items within multiple warehouses and retail stores. Multi-Store Inventory will be featured in a new table within the database by Magento to enhance performance and to secure the database for order booking.
Declarative Schema is another improvement introduced by Magento 2.3 to simplify installation and upgrade procedures. The corresponding processes are revamped by the Declarative schema for both Magento and extensions that ultimately reduce the requirements for many database scripts.
One of the biggest advantages of this feature is that it has the ability to roll out database schema changes in patch releases, which was not possible in previous Magento versions. It also supports split and shared database structure validation as well.
