A year ago, we blogged about the benefits of switching to Magento Enterprise from Magento Community. Today we’re ready to elaborate on the differences between these two editions in case you still haven’t made the switch.
Magento Community Edition
Magento’s Community edition is offered for free. It was created as open source software. That means anyone can download this edition without having to pay.
Additionally, users are free to make changes with it in order to meet their needs. Millions of users around the world have taken advantage of the features that the free edition provides. In fact, many of them have already developed extensions and adopted other customization techniques.
Small businesses benefit the most with this free edition. They use the basic features and take part in development through the site forums. Many tips and tricks have also been discovered to make the Community Edition even more powerful.
Magento Enterprise Edition
There are many Community Edition users that think the platform is not enough. Some users need additional advanced features while others are looking for more customization options that the free version cannot provide.
The Magento Enterprise Edition was created to address this concern. This platform actually shares the same base as the free version, but it has added more functions to accommodate the needs of users with different business requirements.
Moreover, the premium version is completely backed by the Magento team. This edition takes businesses to a higher level of e-commerce.
