e-commerce software for growth?

Magento announced today an Enterprise Edition, reading the “compare editions” page I see that all these features will be included only in the Enterprise Edition:

  • Advanced Administrator Roles and Permission Restriction per Site (Website and Store View)
  • Logging of Administrator Actions
  • Gift Certificates/Cards (Physical and Virtual)
  • Customer Store Credits
  • Content Staging and Merging. Support for both on-demand and scheduled merges and rollbacks of content
  • Category View and Purchase permissions per on customer group (limited catalog access)
  • Private (Club) Sales including Events, Invitations and Category access permissions
  • Strong Data Encryption

So I assume that Magento community edition won’t ever have all of them.

Can we still call it a platform for growth? Sure, but not in the free software ecosystem.
