Migration from Magento 1.x to Magento 2.x is the issue that you’ll have to do with sooner or later. At first, Magento team planned to stop supporting Magento 1.9x in 3 years after Magento 2 release. Now, the team states that the end of the support process will be announced in advance (18 months before closing date). The intention of closing Magento 1.x support means that Magento 1.9x isn’t modern enough and cannot provide the latest advantages in the sphere for its customers.
There is no reason to wait for the end date affirmation. But there are several reasons to migrate Magento 2 now:
- 20% faster platform;
- full-page caching that will make pages speed 2 times faster;
- faster product import;
- payment platforms integrations (PayPal, Braintree, Worldpay, Cybersource);
- mobile responsiveness;
- customizable admin panel;
- starting it now you have enough time to make the transfer smooth.
Migration to Magento 2 gives new capabilities for effective online store operating but it has to be done properly. Correct transfer can be provided only by the experienced team that knows Magento well. Choosing the wrong team may cause data loss and poor effect of migration because of incorrect setup.
