To be aware of buyers’ preferences, it’s vital to ensure that your online store operates
quickly, while looking modern and being intuitive to use. You should keep track of trends
in customer experience, to make sure your shop grabs attention, allowing customers
to navigate easily, and in a profitable way. If it’s time for you to modernize the former
interface of your online store and fill it with more functional features,
Magento 2 migration is a great choice.
Initially, design flexibility was the main advantage of Magento 1. Users could combine and integrate modules as they desired, regardless of site structure recommendations. However, the process wasn’t so user-friendly, which resulted in poor performance. "Magento slow" was one of the most popular search queries. As a result, Magento 2 was designed and released.
The number of security patches and supported extensions is diminishing day by day in Magento 1. From November 2018 Magento 1 is on its' own - no security issues will be patched. If you want to grow your business and use superior technology - upgrade your store to the latest Magento version ASAP.
Magento 2 runs, on average, 56% faster than the earlier version. By increasing the speed of your site, you should see increased sales and improved search engine optimization. Fully cached pages load in 0.2-0.5 seconds, while non-cached pages take up to 5 seconds.
Accelerated pages open opportunities for business scalability. If you want to migrate from the Magento community to the Enterprise edition, or enhance your catalog, Magento 2 is a perfect solution, loading catalog pages 60% faster.
