Since its launch in 2008, Magento has established itself as THE benchmark E-commerce solution. Now available in version 2, Magento is world market leader in Open Source CMS.

After the release of the beta version in 2007, Magento made the headlines by offering the first E-commerce CMS platform that allowed a robust and powerful technical architecture as well as rich native functionalities. The solution quickly became the benchmark within the expert area thanks to the highly active Open Source community.


Technically speaking, Magento relies on the PHP Zend framework, which, in our opinion, predominantly favoured the engagement of a large community of developers, while still ensuring maintenance and durability of the first version. Then, at the end of 2015, Magento achieved a further important milestone with the release of version 2 of the E-commerce CMS platform. Magento 2 was officially brought to the market!


Capitalizing on its experiences Magento decides to start from a brand new PHP architecture, part of which is based on the Symfony framework. In addition to this significant and logical change, the latest version further offers a native PHP 7 compatibility, which considerably enhances the execution time. Magento 2 also makes use of modern technologies to ensure better compatibility with the current web browsers while also facilitating development and integration work (HTML 5, CSS3 and jQuery). Besides the technical aspects, the user and administrator interface underwent a complete overhaul in Magento 2, and the functional scope was expanded. Taking the E-commerce platform closer to current standards, that are defined by the most significant online retailers (mobility, multi-channels, redesigned control conversion funnel).
