Why migrate to Magento 2

The end of Magento 1 support

If you are still using Magento 1 you should have already received a vibrant Adobe notification:

First and foremost, what it means for your business built with Magento 1 are security risks. End of support means that there will be no official security patches, no SUPEEs, and no notifications on new vulnerabilities found.

Magento 1 end of support period

This is an excellent example of Adobe’s Magento soft power that tells you to move your business to Magento 2. You are not forced to leave Magneto 1, however, highly advised to do so. With the support of Magento 2 expanding and new offers appearing on the media.

The support end date table for Magento 1 Community and Enterprise looks like this:

System Support end date
Magento 1.9 Community June 2020
Magento 1.14 Enterprise June 2020
Magento 2.1 Open Source and Commerce June 2019
Magento 2.2 Open Source and Commerce September 2019

We've included Magneto 2.1 and Magento 2.2 because Free Migration add-on also allows you to move from one Magento 2 store to another.

It is also necessary to take PHP version into account. PHP 5.6 support deadline is the New Year eve of 2019. Magento merchants will be issued a new patch to support PHP 7.2; however, its deadline is still November 2020.

To draw the line, Magento 1 store owners have about a year to consider migration or need to prepare to pay even more to support fading Magento 1 legacy.

Magento 2 benefits

The soft power of support date is not the only reason to move to Magento 2. Magento 2 is in so many ways better than Magento 1 that it is hard to stop on particular features. However, we have given it a try and composed a list of why you need to move to Magento 2.

  • Magento 2 PWA and endless customizations - PWA is in the air and brings headless design and less headache for customers. Fast, powerful, still expensive, but in so much ways it is worth it. Development agencies have also been working on Magento 2 some years and have made necessary improvements and earned experience.
  • Magento 2 Multi Source Inventory - native Magento 2 MSI support with the free extension brings whole new live for the store owners who operate multiple warehouses. Firebear Studio also offers FREE MSI add-on of Improved Import and Export extension.
  • More functionality - Magento 2 Commerce offers much functionality that has only been available for Magento 1 as third-party extensions. You don’t actually have to migrate all of your Magento 1 extensions, lots of features available out of the box.
  • The Power of Real Magento Community - Magento community has never been so pro-active in participating in the development of the platform. More quality code and extensions available at Magento Marketplace and in the development agencies.
  • Free B2B extension - for Magento 2 Commerce users Magento team has done a great job by adding negotiable quotes, requisition lists, companies, and other necessary B2B features. B2B add-on of Improved Import and Export is also available for your ERP and CRM integrations.
  • Performance - Varnish Page Caching, MySql Cluster, Faster JS calls, Job Queue Mechanism, Deferred Inventory Updates for faster checkout. You get everything out of the box with Magento 2.
  • Customer experience - Personalized Content, Layered Navigation, Improved Search, Out-of-the-box Responsive Design, Short and Fast Checkout, Improved Merchandising, Advanced Content Management.

Great Support and a great Product.

We bought this extension a few months ago, to prepare for our M1 to M2 migration.

We are migrating from Enterprise to Enterprise, so the migration configuration took a little extra effort and Database knowledge. Regardless, Yurii and Vitaly were very helpful and got all of our questions answered. We now have a working process to migrate our M1 EE stores to M2 EE, using their migration add-on.

The import/export functionality of the extension works as advertised- xlsx support is fantastic for CSVs that are over 8mb, and the complex objects it can import/export have really come in handy.

Highly recommend the Firebear team.

Fast m1 migration experience
January 6, 2020
The whole Magento 1 shop has been migrated in three days, considering we have been particularly picky in what we want to move. Attributes etc. There were some pre-requisites, like - clean M2 installation, and we also needed some assistance from Firebear. Overall it went much much better than expected, and WAY cheaper with in-house dev. Yuri from firebear support was very helpful and explained aspects of the migration. Happy with the result, can recommend.
