Magento 2.0 is finally here! It is the most popular e-commerce platform that has upgraded offering plethora of new features, an unmatched flexibility as well as innovative opportunities. Many businesses have been drawn to this platform to provide their customers with an easier and faster shopping experience.
Are you looking for a faster server loading speed as well as faster checkout process? Are you looking to accelerate performance as well as influence traffic and conversions with enhanced and responsive design? Magento 2.0 is the answer to everything! Magento is the future, but what makes it so ultimate?
Should I upgrade?
Enterprises all around the globe have been waiting for this major new version of Magento for quite a while now and the changes seem invigorating. Upgrading to Magento 2.0 will give you a faster performance and greater stability.
The most important upgrade in which Magento has excelled is it gives 50% more loading speed as compared to its predecessor and almost 38% fast checkout process. Its imperative speed enables traffic and conversions directly. It helps developers eliminate the sluggish performance and bring the average loading time for a smooth 2 seconds.
Along with speed it also promises secure payment procedures, improved Enterprise Edition as well as supports data optimization with an inbuilt data migration tool. All an all experience with Magento 2.0 will be completely different, but if you plan to migrate then all extensions, theming and customization will need to be rewritten which can be a massive undertaking if your website has a lot of customization.
Magento 2.0 is the future and not so much the present. It is still at a point where it can still get upgraded further. If you are starting a new site, you should definitely go for this!
But for the players with an existing site, migration would be a bit difficult as well as will need heavy investment. Though the process of migration will take quite an extra effort, the best way is to view it as a re-platforming project rather than an upgrade.
So hold our horses! Stop rushing in if you already have a fully functioning and stable web store. You should definitely start planning to move to 2 as Magento will stop supporting Magento 1 in the near future. Thus, eventually, migration is about to happen! But before making any hasty decisions wait for more updates!
At this point, there is no urgency to migrate but in long-term in around the next financial year 2018/19 your enterprise architectural plans need to include Magento 2.0 when creating the roadmap to success.
