What is the best Commerce platform to use? To answer this question, you need to know how to differentiate them. Brief example, did you know that there’re SaaS and Open-source eCommerce platforms?
Picture this: On Spotify alone, there are more than 2.2 million podcasts published. If you add Google and Apple Podcasts and other platforms to the picture, the numbers are off the charts. The question is, have you tried listening to eCommerce podcasts yet?
The summer solstice is upon us, the equinox that marks the halfway point for 2021.
So what does this mean for the world of the eCommerce sphere? Generally, the first active sales phase of the year is completed, and companies are presenting their plans and roadmaps for the rest of 2021 and the next year. This is the ideal time to start preparing for big upcoming digital sales events and campaigns like summer clearance sales and Black Friday sales event later on in the autumn.
Big events, big news for the digital commerce industry
Greater collaboration. New services. Integrating AI into the user experience. These were the headline grabbers from announcements made at two recent springtime events – and they’re opening the door to new possibilities for more efficient business and technology cooperation through exciting approaches to the customer experience.
The 31st of March is a date of annual celebration to the Atwix Team. On this date we recognize our eCommerce partnership with Magento, an Adobe company. This year we have 10x reasons to toast our collective selves. We have been a partner going back to 2011. Since then everything we aim to accomplish — commercial and community — is tightly interconnected with Magento and the rapidly expanding eCommerce global economy we support. Ten years in, we remain all-in alongside Magento and our greater ecosystem. Cheers! #HappyAnniversaryMagento

At Atwix, a primary success driver is developing long, trusted partnerships. You cannot win anything alone. Well, you can, but it will be much more difficult and way more boring.
And let’s face it – Magento is all about the Community and its broad partner ecosystem – so staying current on what’s new and what’s changing is a must. So in addition to MageNews, we’re happy to introduce and produce another monthly write-up about our technology partners. This read will contain some news on product releases, Magento extensions, events of interest and much more. Enjoy March’s partner news!
In March 2021 turns a year as we, in Europe and in the US faced a threat of Covid-19 and the first lockdown started. The world has changed since then — new-normal, normal, and the reality of our day-to-day. Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and FaceTime usage skyrocket. It’s no longer weird to have your kitchen in the background of your business call or to pet a dog during a board meeting. We move from a mid-size screen at work, to a small one during lunch and a big one before we go to bed. Services like Apple Fitness+ have been launched in 2020 to fulfill the demand for home-based everything. Our events become virtual… and on, and on, and on. The world has changed one year ago, and probably, to some extent, forever. Have we adapted to the new reality already? Not all. Will we have to? We think — yes. Will we need new tools to do that? Yes. Let’s review the e-reality we are living in and how it’s changing our lives, hopefully, for the better.

Happy New Year, Magento community! For those of us working in eCommerce, last year felt more like a decade. B2B and B2C businesses as well as Adobe ecosystem partners faced quick and intense change. However, we (virtually) came together — by innovating, learning, and growth. In this way, we collectively have reason to celebrate — we met the moment. While turning the page, let’s spend a bit of time recapping 2020 and predicting what is likely to occur in 2021.
2020 is quite an unusual year in many aspects and this reflects in all the spheres of our life. Holiday season 2020 is not an exception and will be more challenging for e-commerce than any other before. Knowing that first hand, hearing this from our customers, we sat down with Nexcess, a hosting partner, to put together tips on what we already do best — helping our customer’s stores perform at the highest level possible despite the circumstances.
Ho Ho Ho! Anyone else waking up in the middle of the night right now? Any visions of Santa and his elves wearing their Christmas themed masks working diligently but socially distanced? Is it just me!? Too soon, you say!
