When to Upgrade?
If the current performance status of your site is good, i.e.; if it is running smooth, no lapse in order and the version you are using isn’t outdated, you needn’t be in a hurry to move. But you can always explore options to optimize, now and then. Your solution partner can analyze the points and factors and let you know what basic changes can be made.
If you have the older version or the newer one, but facing severe performance issues, you’ll benefit a lot with a revamp of the existing software
Making the Move
With the help of a migrating tool, you can move between platforms, with ease. Shifting of store setup, products, customers, orders, promo rules… etc becomes easier.
As theme & code customizations are third-party extensions, it is not transferable and will have to be redone for the new platform Magento 2.
Worth the effort?
Even the thought that it’s important to upgrade to an advanced version is a good start to explore new innovations that can be effectively channeled for your e-commerce needs. You can continue using the previous version, but you can consider the following action items –
- Start thinking about improvements required
- List down extensions that you aren’t aware of ,or haven’t used before.
- Your solution partner will be able to guide you on your plans.
