You haven’t read posts from me since a couple of years. My last post was about the development of Magento under the full control of Ebay and this is over 2 years ago. A lot of things have happened since then: new Magento projects and events like Meet Magento or the Developer Paradise where I always enjoy to meet the Magento community. Also, I enjoy a lot to discuss with e-commerce leaders from retailers and brands about their challenges and goals. Especially retailers with brick-and-mortar stores are facing a very quickly growing competition with strong digital pure players like Amazon. I like to read german e-commerce blogs Exciting Commerce by Jochen Krisch and Kassenzone by Alexander Graf which are covering these challenges quite well.

The question “how to enable my clients to successfully deal with this situation?” has bugged me a lot during these years. I believe that the only way to go is to…

Roman Zenner:

In German – but please have a read if you can!

Nach unserer Innovationsdiskussion bin ich mit hohen Erwartungen in den E-Commerce-Frühling 2014 gestartet und habe nacheinander die Meet Magento, die Shopware Community Days und die OXID Commons besucht. Was würden die Shopsystemhersteller in diesem Jahr präsentierten? Wie sieht ihre Strategie für die nächsten Jahre aus? Wie möchte man das Thema Innovation in Zukunft angehen?
