Magento expands capabilities


King of Prussia, Pa. - eBay Enterprise, an eBay Inc. company, is releasing Magento Enterprise Edition 1.14.2. Magento’s new solutions include new automated product category sorting capabilities, integration of Google Tag Manager, and access to new automated functional tests.

In addition, the Magento Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) enables retailers to create custom iOS applications, as well as provides a sample app that merchants can customize to accelerate their development.

The Magento platform also now integrates with Braintree to offer retailers enhanced online payment capabilities. Merchants can integrate Braintree with their Magento store, accept payments globally and rely on managed fraud protection via Kount, offered through the Braintree extension.

Magento is also announcing a new extension for the New Relic software analytics platform. This extension will give merchants visibility into their hosting environment health and application performance, so they can identify the root cause of issues and consider new ideas for improving site performance. Leveraging the New Relic Insights service, Magento customers can also track data such as order activity, average order value, catalog size, installed modules, and more so they can get a better understanding of how site configuration and performance influence conversion.

Adding to its roster of cloud hosting and technology providers, Magento now partners with Lagrange Systems to help retailers provide an optimal customer experience no matter where they host their sites. Lagrange Systems, a new Magento Gold Technology Partner, has developed a solution called CloudMaestro to provide unrivaled speed and availability in cloud deployments. It proactively optimizes website performance, dynamically scales with traffic demands, increases cloud throughput, and self-heals server resources to ensure cloud-hosted Magento sites have the capacity they need, even during periods of peak demand.
