Magento® was released in 2008 as an open-source commerce platform with multi-store functionality and plugin extensibility. Fast-forward to current time, and the solution is now part of Adobe. Because of the complex nature and the strict architecture of the Magento platform, developers need to work with many different layers. For example, a rather trivial task such as building a custom promotion and displaying it in the frontend often takes backend developers a few days to implement.
commercetools, despite being relatively new to the market, has already been recognized in all three major analysts' reports (Gartner, Forrester, and IDC) for being a cloud-native, multi-tenant, headless commerce solution that enables auto-scaling and continuous updates. commercetools has a flexible API, which brands, merchants and system integrators can use as microservices. Today, commercetools is running major global brands around the world including AUDI, Bang & Olufsen, and EXPRESS.
