What Is Magento CMS

Magento is one of the most powerful, flexible and secure open source e-commerce platforms. Magento is growing rapidly, and it offers a variety of benefits and advantages over other Content Management Systems. As opposed to running this as an independent application, users are able to take advantage of even greater benefits by integrating this application with the internal CRM. Combined with a CRM platform such as Salesforce or SuiteCRM, Magento and these systems offer complementary advantages, providing users with both a back end and a front end. E-commerce stores most often use Magento as their open-source platform. MySQL/MariaDB is used as the data storage platform. Store content, functionality, and appearance can all be customized to reflect your brand. There are thousands of plug-ins and layouts available for quick installation. This is a very secure platform and it is SEO friendly.
