Magento 2.3 Features – Made Things Smarter for E-Commerce

Magento has long been used by the businesses of all sizes to run their e-commerce operations by way of creation of e-commerce websites and stores. It has always been the best choice for most of the e-commerce stores, and there is really no reason that it shouldn’t be. The amazing features that Magento offers its users, providing them in numerous advantages and excellent capabilities truly make it stand out. And what more is, the team behind Magento keeps upgrading bringing out new and advanced features that improve its capabilities and usage for the users in offering their customers best experiences. 

Magento 2.3

With its latest release of Magento 2.3, it has completely updated the processes for the Magento community. The newly added tools have improved performance and security helping businesses to scale and grow. The new functionalities are helping developers to create better stores and websites that fulfill client expectations beyond satisfaction. Let’s see how. 

  • Performance
    An upgrade is always expected to improve the performance of the platform and Magento 2.3 has done that. The upgradation of the base version of PHP from PHP 7.0 to PHP 7.2 gives the developers access to the latest PHP features. The support extended for libsodium module offers enhanced encryption for PHP, thereby enhancing performance and improving security. 

  • Security
    When it comes to websites and stores, security is always a concern. Magento 2.3 has contributed to relieving the users of this concern in a more efficient manner than before with the following security features. 

    1. Two Factor Authentication
      It has become very easy for malicious users to hack passwords. So, to prevent any unauthorized logins on the stores and websites, Magento 2.3 now requires the users to prove their identity by entering a security code that is sent to registered mobile number every time the login is attempted. This way only the registered user can make a login and he shall also get notifies of any unauthorized login attempts.

    2. Google RECAPTCHA
      This tool requires the users to enter a RECAPTCHA code while making any transactions of performing any activities. This requirement proves that the person operating the site is human and makes the user webpages secure from bots, robots and other malicious users.

    3. Cache Management ACL
      The new features requiring cache permissions and access controls have made the cache management much more improved and secure.

  • Magento 2.3 Functionalities 
    The new tools and features that have been introduced with the Magento2.3 launch have brought a number of functionalities to improve the user experiences on the websites and stores.

    1. Progressive Web Apps Studio
      With this functionality, Magento has seamlessly combined a single app to function both as a mobile app and a web app, offering the users better mobile experiences. The website functions as a mobile app thereby increasing the engagements and shooting up the store conversion rate. The earlier versions of Magento required separate customizations for mobile apps and web apps. The PWA Studio has eliminated that need as well.

    2. GraphQL API 
      GraphQL is a query language that is used for APIs. With this, the user can send a specific number of queries and chain multiple requests to get multiple information and data sets in near real-time. This API has replaced the REST and SOAP web APIs and has included storefronts and PWAs. There has also a completely new layer being developed which directly interacts with the GraphQL API.

    3. Page Builder 
      The new page builder feature has eased the Magento Development process of creating a new page for the users. The users can very easily create a new page or edit pages, products and categories. The content updation has also become easier with the facility to add media gallery and widgets. Functionalities like the drag and drop interface, different sets of content types and preview functionality allow even the non-technical users to easily manage their content.

    4. Asynchronous API
      The asynchronous API functionality helps in faster performance integration by keeping better control over the timing and execution of APIs. The users now don’t have to wait for one operation to get completed to start the next. Asynchronous API executes simultaneous operations thus working with a greater volume.

    5. Multi-Source Inventory 
      Inventory management is a very important and complicated task for any business. With this MSI functionality, inventory can easily be managed across multiple physical locations thereby improving operational efficiencies. The MSI also integrates the third-part integration systems. It also has an inventory reservation system that tracks products already added to the carts by deducting the quantity from the stocks thereby helping with accurate stock management and improving conversion rates.

    6. Elastic Search
      Elasticsearch was earlier limited to Magento commerce, but with the Magento2.3 release, it has been extended to Magento opensource thereby enhancing the search capabilities by offering to filter by attributes.

    7. Declarative Database Schema 
      Earlier to alter a schema, the users had to use Install Schema and Upgrade Schema, classes. But now there is no such need. The Declarative Database Schema allows to accomplish multiple goals without any fragmentation of database definitions throughout the install and upgrade scripts and defining via XML instead.
       

With all these new features, tools and functionalities, Magento has totally changed for the good offering its users a lot better experiences to the most of their use and satisfaction, and also increasing its own market share.
