Magento Room for Improvement

Magento has a solution for every business scale, but there were a few issues in the framework itself where there were minor performance issues which they are now working on. Hopefully within six to seven months, if those performance issues are fixed, they will provide a more flexible headless e-commerce approach to their framework, then there will be a greater scope for them overall to be on the larger scale. They are already a competitor with Shopify, but this can put them more on point on to the merchants. Because Magento is relatively new, even though Magento 1 has been in market for 16 or 17 years, Magento 2 is only three to four years old, so it is an evolving technology. In certain areas on the front there were some glitches. For example, you can't do certain kinds of filters on data and you have certain speed issues on category pages due to the way it was written within Magento. Those were a few minor tweaks where we, as a community, found that to be a necessary scope of improvement. But I think they are working on it and hopefully they can solve these issues earlier than later. View full review »

There are multiple areas that are in need of improvement because even a small or mid-sized business requires features that are not included. Some of our clients need a CRM, which is not available in Magneto. Others need a complete accounting system, which is also not available by default. Because of these missing components, we recommend our clients use third-party applications like QuickBooks or Odoo ERP and integrate them with Magento. However, if Magento provides us with these types of features then it will be a win-win because the customer won't have to integrate other systems to achieve the same functionality. The performance is a bottleneck in Magento and there is a lot of room for improvement in this regard. There are multiple modules that come with Magento by default that are not needed by every business and should be removed. I have seen that in the newer releases, they are already starting to improve this. View full review »

Sometimes Magento has technical glitches and freezes, slows down, or crashes. The system requires a site administrator to know how and when to re-index and clear the cache. More technical knowledge is required to keep a Magento website running smoothly compared to many other platforms like OpenCart. View full review »
