Magento 1.x to 2.x Migration
Upgrading magento to its latest version will make your store better and safer. But what if your store is running on magento 1.9 and you want to upgrade to Magento 2? It’s never simple as upgrading magento 1.9 to it’s latest release.
Bad news is that we won’t be able to upgrade from magento 1.9 to Magento 2. Good news is that we can migrate a magento 1 store to Magento 2. Magento 1.x and Magento 2.x are entirely different platforms. Other than they’re both named magento, nothing is the same. Database, file structure, themes and modules are entirely different in magento 2.
Migrating a magento 1.9 store to 2 involves migration of 4 different components. Theme, extensions, customizatins and data. Though data can be migrated using data migration tool, we will have to re-write theme, extensions and customizations, as anything written for magento 1.x will not work for magento 2 due to platform difference.
We are one of the very few qualified teams that have successfully migrated several stores to Magento 2. If you have a store to migrate, feel free to get in touch with us.
