Pioneering Magento Cloud Implementation

Jonty Sutton was invited on stage during Magento Live’s general session for a live Q&A with our client Oliver Sweeney and their Digital Marketing Director, Alex Barbier. The men’s shoe and fashion retailer is the first to adopt the new Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition, which was implemented by Redbox.

“We needed a platform that we could not only easily scale up if required but could also be customised to our brand” – Alex Barbier, Digital Marketing Director, Oliver Sweeney

“The biggest thing for the Cloud Edition is that everything is in one place, from the AWS system to the latest version of Magento to the management tools, all included out-of-the-box,” said Alex Barbier. “The way our website runs is just as important as in-store customer service. We needed a platform that we could not only easily scale up if required but could also be customised to our brand. The website is our virtual shop front and we felt that Magento’s offering was best suited all of those needs.”

“We are seeing an overwhelming demand from merchants to offer highly differentiated customer experiences along with simplified integration with existing systems and enhanced ability to respond to the rapid pace of technology change,” said Jonty. “Magento is once again disrupting the retail landscape by combining the best of SaaS — easily deployed, vertically scaled, easily maintained, protected and upgraded — with its industry-leading flexibility for full control of the customer experience. The differentiated flexibility and personalisation Magento offers, allows organisations to create the best digital commerce experience to engage shoppers and drive sales.”

The release of Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition, back in April – during Magento’s annual conference “Imagine” – means companies can now benefit from an advanced deployment option of the Magento application in public cloud environments. But unlike other SaaS commerce offerings, the Magento Cloud Edition combines all the benefits of SaaS with all of the flexibility and customisation capabilities like on-demand scalability, deployment speed and turnkey management of typical SaaS while supporting unique customisations and integrations.
