MIGRATING FROM MAGENTO
If your business is currently using a Magento Community version between 1.5 to 1.9, you'll already know that support for Magento 1 ends in June 2020. You'll receive software security patches up until June 2020, but after that, Magento's full focus moves to Magento 2 Open Source and Commerce solutions.
It's a really big deal for companies running Magento Community and Enterprise editions, because running unsupported software is incredibly risky, particularly when the software that is no longer being supported forms such a fundamental part of your ecommerce operation.
That's the main reason we recommend moving to Magento 2 in good time. Magento 2 offers a huge leap forward in flexibility and functionality over its predecessor, with an expanded and improved core code which translates into an incredibly smooth experience for customers. A 2-step checkout process is much simpler too, which customers totally love.
Moving from M1 to M2 requires a careful, considered approach, but 247 Commerce has the experience and expertise to help simplify the process for you.
UPGRADING FROM ANOTHER PLATFORM
Many retailers are nervous about changing the software that underpins their store, and for good reason. A small glitch in digital operations can see an online store slow down or - worse - experience a serious outage.
If you're thinking of switching or upgrading your ecommerce platform, you should take a look behind the scenes of Magento 2. A new simplified navigation, reinvented dashboards and segmented databases make Magento 2 as enjoyable for your back-end users as it is for your customers.
The Magento platform now offers significantly faster load speeds, a responsive front-end, frictionless checkout capabilities, easier integrations and much more.
Moving from Shopify, BigCommerce or any other platform to Magento 2 is not unfortunately a one-click operation; it involves changing database structures, themes, and working with new API's. But expertly planned and managed, what looks like a daunting task can be a seamless and trouble-free process.

A Magento 2 migration involves 4 core components:
PLANNING YOUR MIGRATION
247 Commerce and Magento recommend planning for the following steps for the migration
Step 1: Review Extensions on your Current Site
Take a look at the existing extensions plugged in to your current Magento 1 site and determine which are needed or need to be replaced for the new store. Also, check your existing extensions are available as Magento 2 extensions just in case it's necessary to update them.
Bear in mind too, that this represents a good opportunity to remove redundant and unnecessary data from your Magento 1 site, so make plans for this, as required.
Step 2: Plan your Capacity
Find out if you need more advanced functionality in your Magento store, or will need it in future? This is an ideal time to assess potentially longer-term requirements, where Magento’s flexibility and power become a strategic asset.
Step 3: Build and Test Magento 2
Firstly, you’ll need to install Magento 2 and set up your new store with a similar design and topology to your Magento 1 store.
Step 4: Start the Migration
We recommend that you stop all Magento 1 cron jobs and almost all activity on your Magento 1 admin panel except for order management functions. We also recommend migrating data from a replicated Magento 1 database instance. After re-indexing, you’ll need to thoroughly test the Magento 2 site to make sure there aren’t any issues to resolve before going live.
Step 5: Update Incremental Data
Before launching your new site, you’ll need to capture and move data updates such as new orders, reviews and changes in customer profiles to the Magento 2 store.
Step 6: Go Live
Finally, your store may experience a small period of downtime (a few minutes according to Magento) to reindex and change DNS settings before going live.
