Bigcommerce, the fastest-growing commerce platform for successful and
emerging merchants, today announced that Magento, an eBay Enterprise
company, has named Bigcommerce as the SaaS e-commerce migration provider
for ProStores and Magento Go, which will be discontinued on February 1,
Bigcommerce and Magento are committed to the future success of ProStores
and Magento Go retailers. Magento is offering migration options that
best suit the needs of each client, including migration to its Community
and Enterprise Editions, and special migration offers to Bigcommerce.
For those clients best served outside of the Magento portfolio, Magento
recommends ProStores and Go retailers move their stores to Bigcommerce.
Magento and Bigcommerce carefully coordinated the design of a migration
program to ensure that ProStores and Go retailers can begin making
preparations to migrate their stores well before the critical holiday
season. The program includes integration across sales, migration
services, and client support, as well as exclusive offers on comparably
“Magento is dedicated to helping fast-growing retailers succeed. We
chose Bigcommerce to help with the transition because of their shared
commitment to client success and their proven track record of migrating
large groups of merchants onto their platform,” said Mark Lavelle,
senior vice president of product and strategy, eBay Enterprise.
“Throughout this transition period, we will fully support both ProStores
and Go, and clients will receive the same level of customer service
they’ve come to expect.”
Bigcommerce has previously migrated more than 6,000 ProStores retailers
onto its platform and has migrated an additional 6,000 stores from other
platforms, giving it the industry’s deepest expertise in terms of
in-house professional services and tools to help clients successfully
relaunch their stores. In addition, Bigcommerce’s client-centric
culture, tight integration with PayPal and ability for clients to sell
on eBay make it a natural choice as a Magento transition provider.
“We are prepared and excited to work with ProStores and Magento Go
merchants to help them continue their success using the Bigcommerce
platform,” said Eddie Machalaani, CEO of Bigcommerce. “We understand
that the to-do list for small business owners is never ending, and our
teams are standing by to deliver the very best migration and onboarding
experience so merchants can focus on growing their businesses.”
Bigcommerce offers a comprehensive e-commerce platform designed to help
growing small and mid-sized businesses sell more. By expanding its
product and engineering teams, Bigcommerce further demonstrates its
commitment to creating the best platform for SMB merchants, including
beautiful and optimized design templates, built-in SEO, mobile
optimization and easy integration with PayPal. In addition, Bigcommerce
offers many free educational tools, support and professional services to
ensure clients have everything they need to grow their businesses. New
clients coming from Go and ProStores will join more than 50,000
companies currently on the Bigcommerce e-commerce platform. Current
clients include established and emerging brands such as Grace and Lace,
Josie Maran, Stupid Cancer, Gibson Guitars, and Schwinn.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
