PHOENIX MEDIA was entrusted with the challenging task of taking over three existing Adobe Commerce-based online shops. This acquisition should also integrate the previous standard hosting into the PHOENIX MEDIA Kubernetes hosting infrastructure. A particular challenge in this project was to carry out a Magento 2.4.6 update on a previously unknown code base from another agency. The aim was to optimize the existing code and ensure the maintainability of the platform. Another key focus was replacing the legacy search functionality with Elastic Search, while maintaining existing search results. In addition, scalability to new countries and increasing performance in all shops was a top priority.
The BRAND GROUP made the conscious decision to commission PHOENIX MEDIA with this project. This was based on the company's extensive expertise in e-commerce and its outstanding position as an Adobe Gold Partner. This recognition underlines PHOENIX MEDIA's many years of experience in this area and strengthens its trustworthiness as a reliable partner for the implementation of this demanding project.
