Easier Maintenance and Upgrades
- The modular code base, the improved framework for customizations (clear separation of business logic from presentation), and the new multi-level theme inheritance makes application maintenance easy and updates less complex.
- Standalone installers will also simplify deployment and upgrades in Magento 2.0. The standalone installer will automatically check for prerequisites and conflicts before starting the upgrade process.
What this means for Merchants
- The maintenance and upgrades are greatly simplified in Magento 2.0 which will reduce the costs significantly; which merchants can then invest on other improvements.
- The new improve architecture also provides a more stable eCommerce platform by reducing the breakages caused during upgrades.
- In eCommerce, innovations are happening at a rapid pace and it is imperative for businesses to stay up-to-date or risk becoming obsolete. With Magento 2.0 this becomes an easy and less expensive exercise.
What this means for Developers and Partners
- While easier maintenance and upgrade will reduce the dependency of merchants on developers and partners, they now have an opportunity to add greater value to merchants and the Magento community by focusing their efforts on other innovations.
- Developers and merchants can now work with merchants, who will now be more willing, to identify other opportunities for improvement like customer experience and more.
What this means for End Customers
- No matter what, end customers stand to benefit from this either in the form of a fast and scalable eCommerce store or new innovations or features to further improve and personalize their shopping experience.
