Keep your Magento
& up-to date security by upgrading your Magento
to the newest version
With each new Magento version upgrade come improvements in performance, speed, and security. Magento store owners should update their Magento version for several reasons
Magento releases updates regularly to address security issues, fix bugs, and improve performance. As a general guideline, it is recommended to upgrade your Magento version with each new release.
In addition the cost of upgrading your Magento store can increase if you postpone upgrades. This is because the longer you wait to upgrade, the more changes and updates you will need to implement to bring your store up to date. Here are a few ways that postponing Magento upgrades can increase costs
Let your migration to be performed from the top learnings taken from 300s of migrations & upgrades since 2015. Now migration to Magento 2 or it’s upgrade is finally a calm, fast, and predictable process with great results.
After the initial meeting, we plan a discovery process to analyze the current state of your eCommerce operations. We describe and define the objects to be migrated such as the platform, custom features, SEO, integrations, and data layer. The necessary time and effort to migrate them are reflected in the migration estimate that is part of the agreement.
Additionally, we look into opportunities to improve your eCommerce operations by conversion-driven redesign, SEO, enhanced data gathering and analytics, scalable hosting, PIM, or OMS.
Once we start working, we share the project delivery roadmap across all the streams such as graphic design, frontend development, backend development, ERP integration, default data migration and custom data migration, technical SEO, data layer & analytics.
Every week or two, you will be invited to a demo and receive a sprint report summarizing results achieved and updating the point where we are on the overall project roadmap.
In addition to sprint demos and reports, we also plan larger milestones on the roadmap that aggregate efforts across streams into a demo build of your project.
Milestones are usually as follows
Clean Adobe Magento 2 project is set up on a Staging server with sample data
Your default data is migrated to the Staging instance and can be checked with the default theme
ERP, WMS, or similar systems are connected to your new store and default data starts to be alive with the import of real SKUs, prices, and stocks—basic orders placed can be received in the ERP system if order export is part of the order flow
The frontend team has completed your theme and it is available for review on a separate server instance with default data—after its approval, it is merged into the Staging instance, so that your basic data that is now alive and connected to ERP systems is displayed in the correct look, feel, and layout
Extensions are set up, custom modules are coded, and custom data from the previous platform is migrated
SEO team has been working in parallel and makes sure that all content, metadata, and redirects are set up correctly
Data & Analytics team makes sure that all events on the frontend are correctly tagged and sent to the data collection platform
The site undergoes end-to-end UAT and pre-live simulation after all scope is delivered and tested internally.
Data migration scripts are updated to prepare for the go-live and delta data migration to take account of the new products, customers, and orders.
The current site sets up a maintenance page, the new site is up, the cache is warmed up, and we usually manage DNS switch with the Cloudflare to enable instant transfer and show-up of the site for all users without the need to wait for ISP update propagation.
Project delivery, SEO, UX, and data layer teams continue to monitor the site during the first week of the go-live and work in close contact with the customer to make sure that all backend processes are functioning correctly and business metrics are stable.
Engage the eCommerce growth team for continuous improvement of eCommerce operations and business metrics.
