I’ve known about the Magento e-commerce platform since 2008, and I was immediately impressed by its user friendliness and out-of-the-box features. Since then, Magento has really grown, and quite a few members of our community have asked for an integration with this e-commerce system. So, I’m really happy to say that with the help of IntegratingWeb, we have officially released an integration for opentaps Open Source ERP + CRM with the Magento e-commerce platform. Now you will have a choice of either using the Apache OFBiz e-commerce store included in opentaps already or the Magento e-commerce store with opentaps.
What’s really cool about this integration is that it adds a web-based Data Access Layer module based on the Pentaho Data Integration (kettle) ETL system. This module is used for importing and transforming data into the opentaps Data Import modules, and you can use it for more than just importing data from Magento. You can use it to import product and order data from other e-commerce or Point Of Sales systems as well, and kettle allows you to graphically redesigned the transformations of your data.
Here’s additional information on how to set up the opentaps – Magento integration. Enjoy!
