What makes a good eCommerce platform? Performance, flexibility, and ease-of-use. Magento 1 epitomized these features upon release in 2008 as well as throughout most of its lifespan, however, times have changed and no amount of updates can help Magento 1 keep up with its modern counterparts. The core technology has evolved as have the expectations and demands of eCommerce platforms.
M2 migration can feel like an intimidating process. Plus it can be difficult to part with M1 due to the familiarity and demonstrated robustness of the platform. But just like parting with your old, rusty coffee-grinder, for a top-of-the-line new one, migration to Magento 2 is a change you`ll appreciate immediately after making it and you`ll wonder why it took you so long to do so. The new grinder is faster, works better, has more functionalities, and is easier to clean, which, as it happens, also applies to Magento 2.
Migrate to Magento 2 and drive more sales. Simple as that.
Come July 2020, Magento 1 will officially stop receiving updates and support from Magento. This means unpatched security vulnerabilities, death of the M1 3rd party extension, integration, and application ecosystem, and no technical support from Magento. This can put your store and your customers in a dangerous situation.
Why is Magento pushing so hard for migration? It`s due to a combination of the aging technology powering Magento 1, and the opportunities offered by Magento 2. Given the exponential speed of technological developments, maintaining large stores & funneling financial transactions through a 10+ year old infrastructure is becoming increasingly dangerous, slow, and overall inefficient.
Unsurprisingly, there is an observable spike in migration requests, which is expected to continue increasing as July 2020 approaches, straining every quality Magento migration agency for available developers. Don`t get left behind and begin your migration process as soon as possible, else an uncomfortable situation awaits you and your customers.
