Amazon Cognito vs Magento: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon Cognito as "Securely manage and synchronize app data for your users across their mobile devices". You can create unique identities for your users through a number of public login providers (Amazon, Facebook, and Google) and also support unauthenticated guests. You can save app data locally on users’ devices allowing your applications to work even when the devices are offline. On the other hand, Magento is detailed as "Flexible eCommerce solutions, a vibrant extensions marketplace and an open global ecosystem". Magento Community Edition is perfect if you’re a developer who wants to build your own solution with flexible eCommerce technology. You can modify the core code and add a wide variety of features and functionality.
Amazon Cognito belongs to "User Management and Authentication" category of the tech stack, while Magento can be primarily classified under "Ecommerce".
Some of the features offered by Amazon Cognito are:
- Manage Unique Identities
- Work Offline
- Store and Sync across Devices
On the other hand, Magento provides the following key features:
- Analytics and Reporting
- Product Browsing
- Catalog Browsing
