What does Magento Enterpise Cloud mean for Enterprise Merchants? Ampersand’s new Technical Director Brett Cooper looks at the implications.
Magento Imagine takes place in Las Vegas, it started over six years ago and hosts over two thousand commerce experts, from merchants, agents and technology providers and apparently Magic Johnson was there too. As the new Technical Director at Ampersand the annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas for Magento Imagine was the perfect opportunity to take an in depth look at the Magento road map and the implications for our customers.
There were key product announcements for Magento 2.0 marketplace; Magento Enterprise Cloud, Specifications for Magento 2.1 and finally a specific B2B module. It was Enterprise Cloud that looked particularly interesting to us, it also created a lot of questions on the role of hosting providers and the more general notion of Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings.
