Magento is unique and often used by more notable brands due to its scalability and features. Magento 2 requires specialist knowledge and technical understanding for it to perform and run optimally. As I’ve completed four exams in Magento 2, I’m comfortable working on all types of Magento projects and carrying out Magento migrations.
Initially starting on Magento 1 and now working with Magento 2 I fully understand the fundamentals of the platform. It’s especially important because failure to do this often results in a project not quite working how you want. Understanding how Magento handles data in terms of products is pivotal, setting your products up as a particular type might restrict functionality at a later date. Another consideration is that if your planning on multichannel through Amazon & eBay then attribute sets and configuration will play an important role.
Magento 1 will reach ‘End of Life’ in June 2020. After June 2020 Magento 1 will no longer be supported by Adobe meaning that security and performance updates will stop, many of the extensions may also stop receiving updates. Which could leave your eCommerce website in a vulnerable position.
It’s a great time to start thinking about your Magento 1 to Magento 2 migration. If Magento hasn’t quite ticked all the boxes for you another platform such as WooCommerce could potentially be an option.
