Adobe on May 22, announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Magento Commerce, a commerce platform, for $1.68 billion, subject to customary purchase price adjustments. The addition of the Magento Commerce Cloud will enable commerce to be seamlessly integrated into the Adobe Experience Cloud, delivering a single platform that serves both B2B and B2C customers globally. The Magento Platform brings together digital commerce, order management and predictive intelligence into a unified commerce platform enabling shopping experiences across a wide array of industries. Adobe has plans to capitalise on this core competency of Magneto Commerce.

Adobe is well known for designing and delivering digital experiences through content and data. At the very core of this, the company believes lies a great experience in terms of content and data. Adobe also believes that Commerce is also integral to the customer experience. Consumers and businesses now expect every interaction to be shoppable whether, on the web, mobile, social, in-product or in-store, Adobe stated in a release.

Adobe hopes that Magento will bring Adobe Experience Cloud digital commerce enablement and order orchestration for both physical and digital goods across a range of industries, including consumer packaged goods, retail, wholesale, manufacturing and the public sector. The Magento Platform was built on a scalable technology supported by a vibrant community of more than 300,000 developers. The Magento partner ecosystem has been providing thousands of pre-built extensions, including payment, shipping, tax and logistics. This flexibility offers businesses the ability to quickly ramp and iterate their commerce capabilities for their unique business needs.
