YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

These are the questions we're most frequently asked, but if you'd like to speak with a specialist, call us on 0208 940 7011.
  • DO I REALLY NEED TO UPGRADE TO MAGENTO 2?

    The simple answer is no, but we strongly advise starting to plan for it before June 2020.

    Just as there may be some old computers sat in the corner of offices running Windows 7 or Windows XP that are not supported by Microsoft any more, its the same with Magento 1. Initially, Magento 1's 'end of life' was announced for November 2018 but that has since been revised with an updated Magento 1 End of Life of June 2020.

    Magento also announced that they will only be releasing security patches for the Magento 1 product from now on as their full focus and investment moves to Magento 2.

    Your decision to move to Magento 2 will come down to a number of factors – your appetite or aversion to risk, your budgets, and perhaps most importantly, how your site is performing for you right now. If you’re looking at a site redesign or some larger work on your site, it may make sense to make a bigger move to Magento 2 at the same time.

  • WHAT ABOUT MY EXISTING DESIGN, FUNCTIONS AND DATA?

    It's your choice, if you want to bring your design, functionality and data across.

    Migrating your site isn't just about code and data. There's a lot of intrinsic knowledge and learning tied up in your existing platform. Perhaps you've spent years perfecting a logistics process that now works – all that knowledge should also be transferred across to the Magento 2 platfom implemetation.

    If you like your design, bring it across. Every line of code will be rewritten but if you have a design in place that you want to keep, then time can be saved taking designs and some key CSS across to the new platform.

    The same applies with functionality. Existing concepts, processes and workflows can be migrated. If an extension was used to provide some functionality, a like-for-like extension may already be available, or we'll build the functionality from scratch.

    Data migration is a little easier these days, as Magento provide data migration tools that will bring across customers, CMS, orders and product data.

  • HOW LONG DO M2 MIGRATIONS TAKE?

    There's no straightforward answer to this, but only because it depends on so many things.

    Like what you have in place already, what is moving across or being changed during the migration, and how complex the existing site functionality and design is. For a very ballpark estimate, an M2 migration may take anywhere from 16 weeks for relatively straightforward requirements to 9 months for larger, more complex integrations and a high degree of front and back-end customisation.

  • CAN I GET A GET A DEMO OF MAGENTO 2?
