Looking to the future

Magento Migration

Magento 1 is a thing of the past and time is running out for you to easily move forward, so if you haven’t already it is time to start the migration process! Here at Deploy, we have successfully completed many migrations using a tried and tested approach which ensures a smooth transition.

All good things come to an end

Why Magento 2?

With the end of Magento’s support and official security, patches signal the end of the platform. This alone should be a good enough reason for you to move on, however, if you still need more reasons:

  • Technical Debt. Any further development work done on Magento 1 will need to be re-done once you’ve moved to Magento 2. The move is inevitable. The longer it takes to move, the more it will cost in the long run.
  • Lack of new features. Each new release comes with shiny new features – and a LOT of them! Without making the move to Magento 2, you and your store will be missing out on all of the latest features.
  • Cost of Migration. Currently, most Magento agencies are in the process of migrating customers over to Magento 2. This means we are able to be as efficient as possible when migrating you to Magento 2.

All in good time

How long will it take?

The timescales for Magento can vary, with a typical Magento project taking around 20-24 weeks from commission to launch. Most stores have a level of complexity that demands a diligent project management process. However, we have completed migrations as quickly as 4 weeks before.

Some key factors in determining the timescale are:

  • User experience.  Is the Magento 1 website performing well or does this need to be revisited?
  • Technical migration. How much custom functionality needs to be ported; if you are using a third party extension do the same extensions exist for Magento 2?

If you are still unsure or just want some more information, we can provide a free migration audit for you!

It will be a wise investment

How much will it cost?

The cost can vary greatly depending on so many factors. Some projects are pretty big, incorporating unique user experience requirements and functionality, complex 3rd party integrations and data migrations. Others are relatively simple in comparison, although almost always need some level of customisation to meet or maintain requirements. Some projects need all requirements delivered on day one, and sometimes an MVP with subsequent phased roll-outs is the right approach.  The best way to get a handle on cost is by chatting with our expert team. We can complete a migration audit for you Did we mention they are free! See below.

Migrating from other platforms

The announcement of Magento 2 some time ago was a catalyst for change. As Magento pressed forward with an even more robust solution, the SaaS model grew and could be seen as an attractive alternative, especially for simpler eCommerce stores.

Merchants making the move from Magento have experienced differing levels of success, some returning due to restrictions they feel the Saas model represents and the total cost of ownership not always being as cost-effective as anticipated.  Some merchants are simply seeing the power of Magento 2 and looking to migrate from their current platform to gain the benefits.

We’re always keen to talk openly and objectively about moving to Magento 2 from a different platform.  We love thinking through the options and helping to work out the most effective approach to migration.
