Journey from Magento 1 to Magento 2 Migration

Magento had announced Magento 1 End of Life in June 2020. And now finally the Magento 1 software support has ended on June 30' 2020.

The announcement had provoked urgency for the store owners who were still using older Magento 1.x versions. Earlier they announced to end support in 2018 but as there are thousands of websites are still running on M1 platforms, it was tough for them to migrate to Magento 2 this sooner. Understanding the scenario, they finally extended to end the support for Magento 1 in 2020.

With Magento 1 EOL, the stores that are still running on Magento 1 versions are vulnerable to potential attacks and may face security issues.

E-commerce businesses must be regularly upgraded to efficiently enable new features, better store functionality, improved user experience, and enhanced security. The investment to upgrade Magento 1 to 2 is essential as you would want your store to be future-proof.

Why migrate your Magento 1 store to Magento 2?

Everything better comes up with its own benefits and limitations. Comparing Magento 1 vs Magento 2 versions, here are the benefits to make the right decision to migrate. They are

  • Flexible architecture for front end and backend
  • Improved performance and scalability
  • User-friendly interface
  • Enhanced user experience
  • Mobile-friendly design and theme layout
  • User-friendly checkout
  • Better admin panel that offers an easy way to create or upload products

For PCI DSS compliance, merchants require to be able to demonstrate that their implementation maintains the security systems as per the official standards.
