Ready for a Magento Migration or Upgrade?
Choosing a Magento migration or to upgrade to the latest version, can be a great idea for your eCommerce business. Like any crucial, complex technological decision, it is best to approach the decision well-armed with information and confident in your partner. Having launched many Magento sites, we know the common elements of what creates the most successful Magento migrations. While we’d like to take complete credit for the success stories, the truth is that your expectations, preparation and actions are as important to the project as our qualifications and expertise.
Expectations – Know what you are getting into.
Have an idea about the steps involved before you commit to a course of action. It’s important to know and list out the important features you currently have that you wish to preserve. Most importantly, with respect to a Magento migration, be open to changing some of your processes and legacy features. Flexibility is a top-line requirement when migrating or re-platforming. Don’t put a brick wall between some internal operational habits that might seem very important or immutable. Magento works very well along its designed paths – which have a lot of options and huge flexibility. If you are inflexible, you will be asking for a lot of added customization and expense.
