Dream. Dare. Do – that is Suyati’s work principle in a nutshell.
After being rigorously tested in real-world conditions as part of its Merchant Beta program, Magento 2.0 is all set for its biggest release this November. Here are a few facts you should know about how Magento 2.0 is going to improve the performance of your business, ahead of its big release!
The Enterprise Edition module comes with streamlined checkout and payment processing. The code-base includes order management, standalone database for checkout, asynchronous grid fulfillment, product management and separation of store sub-systems. This module includes updates to import/export functionality, transactional emails, configurable swatches, and a whole host of merchant features. Strong performance improvements are brought about with holistic updates.
Though Magento 2 has been shot in the arm with a whole host of advanced features, the two key new features are without a doubt, full page caching and a simplified checkout system. Let us take a look at the top 5 business benefits of Magento 2.0.
Upgrading the core software, as well as installing and upgrading extensions in Magento 2 are now much easier. Magento 2’s standalone installer will now check for pre-requisites before it starts the installation. This helps system integrators easily script installations and upgrades to create standard deployments. You can use the export/import functionality to export customer records, inventory data, product catalog, and so on and then import the same into Magento 2.
Grid views of Page Titles, Inventory Levels etc. can be created in the admin area and information can be edited directly on the page in the grid just like how you would do it in a simple Excel sheet. This is extremely time-saving as you do not have to open each product individually and hit the sub-tabs to edit information. Bulk images and prices can now be applied to sets of images.
The Future of Magento 2
Even before its release, Magento has published a suite of improvements it plans to add to Magento 2:
The Magento Migration
Magento is providing migration scripts in a bid to automate the migration of data. Team Magento has communicated that both 3rd party modules as well as the front end will require re-work to be compatible with the new approach. Magento’s official website lays out all you need to do ahead of its launch. You can get prepped for the big day here!
