MAGENTO 1 TO MAGENTO 2 MIGRATION

Your Road Map to Improved Performance and Increased Revenue

End of Life of M1

On Sep 6 2018, Magento published a blog ‘Supporting Magento 1 through Jun 2020’, in which it mentioned that it will stop supporting Magento through 2020.

Here’s what they had to say.

“For Magento Commerce 1 (Enterprise), we are providing software support through June 2020. Depending on your version, software support may include both quality fixes and security patches.”

“For Magento Open Source 1 (Community), we are providing software security patches through June 2020 to ensure those sites remain secure and compliant.”

The blog also clearly states – ‘While we’re committed to supporting the success of all merchants, the time to upgrade to Magento Commerce 2 is now’.

Time left to plan and safely begin your migration

Why migrate from Magento 1 to Magento 2 NOW?

  • Support for existing solutions/extensions will be limited. You will no longer receive any support, security patches or updates for your website.
  • Post the End of Life (EOL), there’ll be no new functionalities, no new apps, and no other way to keep up with the current eCommerce trends.
  • By not having access to the latest security patches, your business will be vulnerable to all manner of security breaches and hacks.
  • Workforce scarcity will impact the site maintenance as the market will be focused towards Magento 2.
  • And finally, you don’t have a choice, because… It’s Endgame!! So, continuing with Magneto 1 eCommerce store after the End of Life will be a risky move for your business, reputation and customer retention.

Support only for Magento 2 extensions

Magento Marketplace is the official Magento extension store, that offers merchants a curated selection of solutions that helps to expand the Magento solution with powerful features and functionalities.

  • Recently Magento removed or submissions canceled of Magento 1 extensions from Magento Marketplace.
  • Moving forward only Magento 2 extensions will be available in the Magento Marketplace.
  • Moreover, extensions, themes, and other code customization of Magento 1 store cannot be automatically migrated to Magento 2 store.
  • You have to reach out the extension provider or the theme vendor to check out if they have versions compatible with Magento 2.

“MDS needed a B2B site that our customers wanted to use, a site that was intuitive to how our customers already used eCommerce in their day to day lives. Most ERP eCommerce solutions do not function the way our customers need them to. DCKAP took a great platform, Magento, and made it work with our ERP system.”
