Adobe Commerce Cloud
The world's largest ecosystem in ecommerce over the past 10 years does not seem to slow down the pace of development. With Adobe as owners they are increasing momentum, and for the fifth year in a row (2021), has been named Leader in digital commerce by both Gartner and Forrester Research regardless of whether your focus is B2C or B2B.
Adobe, one of the world's largest software companies, bought the ecommerce platform Magento in 2018. Today we have two variants of the popular platform, Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce. Read more about the differences between the two options here.
Both Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce can be used as the ecommerce engine in a Headless Commerce strategy based on modern MACH architecture, read more about this here.
Created for leaders in digital commerce
This is the ecommerce platform for you who run a large, established company or for you who run a medium-sized business with strong growth. Adobe Commerce knows no limitations in relation to scalability and can boast, among other things, of being the most used ecommerce platform among the 1,000 largest retailers in North America. (IR Top 1000)
One of the really big success criterias is the versatility you get. The technology is used across 20+ industries, for actors with global ambitions, companies with several online stores and, and last but not least, you no longer have to choose whether it is a B2C or B2B platform that you should give the highest priority to, because Adobe Commerce masters both.
You can buy Adobe Commerce as a cloud service where operation of the solution at either Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure is included in the license, in addition to a number of services for higher speed, stability and security. The result is a highly scalable solution that has proven to handle several million products (sku´s), thousands of users at the same time and a digital turnover of over $1bn a year.
Adobe Commerce has a wider range of functionality and a higher degree of innovative solutions, compared to it's little brother Magento Open Source. To mention a few, you can for example use the personalization service Adobe Sensei which uses machine learning to create unique purchase experiences. As well as integrated AI search, Page Builder CMS for content production, campaign management, BI tools for cross-channel data analysis, and the market's best B2B functionality as standard.

Why do so many choose Adobe Commerce?
The market leader
When you achieve a position as the market-leading ecommerce platform globally for larger companies, being named the market's best solution year after year by recognized publications, on top of being one of the most important platforms for so many other technologies within ecommerce (eg: payment) then its only natural that it increases momentum further. In other words, the industry's answer to the old expression "nobody ever got fired for choosing IBM".
The platform is based on open source code, which gives you the opportunity to develop and adapt the solution exactly as you wish.
To be competitive in digital commerce, you have to meet the customer's expectations and their attitude is simple: "if others can do it, then you should be able to do it!". In other words, they expect the same from you as from Zalando.
Since Adobe Commerce is based on open source code and is API-driven, you have the necessary flexibility to be able to meet those expectations, regardless of what the competitor is doing.
Rich in functionality
Adobe Commerce gives you access to a wide range of innovative functions within all facets of modern digital commerce.
From online store specific features such as a user-friendly CMS, AI search and the personalization service Adobe Sensei which uses machine learning to create unique shopping experiences.
To a more holistic approach to digital commerce as we know it today, which makes it easier to implement an omnichannel strategy with multi-warehouse, BOPIS and focus on loyalty and customer club. Start selling in new channels such as Amazon and Google if you wish, or what about B2B functionality that gives the sales department the opportunity to handle the entire sales process digitally, from offer to order?
The pace of development
That the platform has Adobe, one of the world's largest software companies as owners, is a big advantage, but not unique. Several competing platforms have solid owners who, like Adobe, invest heavily in innovation and development.
What makes Adobe Commerce unique is the combination of the ownership of Adobe and the fact that the platform represents the world's largest ecommerce ecosystem.
With more than 360,000 developers globally, 1100+ partners like PearlConvert and 5400+ extensions available on the Magento Marketplace from third parties (think appstore), the pace of development and expertise available is truly something for itself.
Fordelen av at løsningen er Open Source er fleksibiliteten det gir deg, at den er API-basert gjør det enkelt for tredjeparter å knytte sine tjenester sammen med Adobe Commerce. Når du kombinerer disse teknologiske fordelene så har du en ecommerce plattform som ikke bare er konkurransedyktig i dag, men som også vil lede utviklingen i fremtiden.
Independent of market or industry
For players who have an international presence, have several online stores that focus on both B2C and B2B, then Magento is an excellent choice because you can handle all countries, concepts or markets from the same platform.
The next big wave of change in digital commerce is happening in B2B and with Adobe Commerce you get access to award-winning and innovative B2B functionality as standard.
Det er mange konkurransedyktige ecommerce plattformer på markedet, men det er vesentlig færre som har en lokal og bred forankret posisjon i Norge. Det at flere av Norges ledende byråer innen digital handel har valgt Magento som deres foretrukne plattform og bygd opp kompetanse på området i 10+ år utgjør den store forskjellen for mange når man evaluerer mulighetene i markedet.
Compared to several competitive platforms for larger companies, Adobe Commerce will provide faster time-to-market, lower initial investment and lower costs over time.
All recognized ecommerce platforms have their strengths, it would be naive of us to say that Magento is superior in all aspects of digital commerce. For many, we believe it is about the totality of a choice and the opportunity to reduce potential risk that makes so many choose Adobe Commerce.
The advantage lies in knowledge
Two companies that choose the same ecommerce platform, but different agencies can achieve very different results. Many forget that the technology itself does not create results, it is the people and the knowledge that do.
