In the real world merchants get sold into Magento Enterprise for projects where it's not necessarily needed. First let me make clear Magento Enterprise is a great product, it can provide a fast loading, PCI-Compliant, fully featured eCommerce solution out of the box. But unless you are going to make use of the Enterprise features and get additional value from these, the license fee can seem like an unnecessarily fixed yearly cost.
If you have decided that the additional cost of the Enterprise License isn't needed for your Magento site, then how do you migrate away? There are a number of factors to consider and a number of different approaches you could take, I'm going to outline two methods and explore how each could help you achieve this task.
One of our existing clients requested we took their existing ecommerce solution and blog, and made it responsive so it would function correctly on mobiles and tablets. The original Magento ecommerce store had a fixed width, and used compressed contextual imagery which did not translate well to mobiles or any device with a retina display. It is however, very clean so we wanted to make sure the mobile version reflected that, and that the main focus was on the products.

We've just launched a new Magento extension for one of our clients. After we launched their site last year they've seen a great increase in traffic and had a large number of enquires from users who wanted to have their quality products customised, so they came to Develo Design to help build their vision of a custom product designer for their Magento store that could deliver both an enjoyable experience to the customers and a seamless integration into their Magento website. We set out with a plan to build this tool and assisted with their design for the user interface we developed the extension to exceed amongst others the following goals.
