True Cost of “Upgrading” to Magento 2
Magento is encouraging customers to “upgrade” to Magento 2 after announcing that it extended support for Magento 1 products until June 2020. The word “upgrade” is in quotes because this is an understatement. Magento 2 is an entirely new platform with substantial framework differences so the upgrade process should be treated as a new build or a rebuilding effort.
All extensions and custom code need to be reviewed and rewritten to ensure compatibility with Magento 2 and new versions of PHP. Themes must undergo the same treatment as they are not compatible either. Some extensions and themes are not available in Magento 2 so customers will have to start from scratch.
If you have Magento and are using NetSuite ERP, why put yourself through the hassle of migrating to Magento 2?
- NetSuite manages all patches and upgrades for SuiteCommerce Advanced and everything is backward compatible.
- It is also natively integrated with NetSuite’s ERP, CRM and complete business management suite.
If you don’t have NetSuite ERP and haven’t yet migrated to Magento 2, then ask yourself these questions.
- Why should I keep doing business with a company that requires this much effort to continue using its products?
- Does Magento’s acquisition by Adobe give you confidence that this cycle won’t repeat? (Hello, Adobe Commerce Cloud.)
