What are the benefits of upgrading from Community to Enterprise?
This is a tough question to answer without having any details. Every Magento Community site is different so here are a few things to think about when asking this question.
- Most stores that may do 1-100 orders per week are fine with Community, but in some cases stores doing this quantity could benefit from Enterprise.
- Most stores that do an online annual revenue of less then $2M are fine with Community, but in some cases stores doing this revenue could benefit from Enterprise.
- Enterprise should be considered when a good percentage of the Enterprise Only features will be utitlized.
- Enterprise should be considered when there are sites that process dozens of orders in a duration of only a few minutes. This could be due to a big sale or promo that is pushed to the public.
- Enterprise should be considered if another technology is required that only integrates with Enterprise.
- Enterprise should be considered if growth or expectations around a new site deem starting with Enterprise necessary. There will be double cost and schedule impacts to your business if you start on Community and then require Enterprise for any reason within just a few months.
