Why do global businesses choose the Magento platform?

Operating globally, enterprises struggle with safety and constancy of solutions in their businesses. Another issue is scaling and shortening the time-to-market, which allows companies to quickly enter new markets or introduce new products and concepts before the competition. To do this, it is essential to analyze proposed solutions using real-time data and adjust them to the needs of local users without unnecessary costs. Magento addresses all of these concerns.

Magento strongly focuses on the highest security standards – it is PCI-compliant, it also adopts the latest changes in global legislation (like last year’s GDPR). At the same time, Magento works well with multiple third-party integrations, making it easy to connect existing ERP, delivery, or PIM solutions.

What’s also important is that it is widely supported by an active community of over 300k developers and merchants.
