Magento 1 to Magento 2 Migration
Since Magento officially announce Magento 1 would be sunsetting in June 2020 there has been an increase in demand for Magento 1 to Magento 2 migration. The processes for migrating data including; customer data, product data, order history and content is standardised, however, migrating functionality and bespoke extensions requires the development of a functional specification. Our certified Magento development team have successfully migrated numerous Magento 1 websites to Magento 2.
Migration to Magento 2 from Another Platform
Our Magento development team are familiar with migrating from a wide range of eCommerce platforms to Magento 2. The team have successfully migrated from bespoke systems, as well as SaaS platforms. The effort required depends entirely on the scope of the project, however all projects follow our standard development process. Magento 2 migration also provides an opportunity to reflect on what should be kept, what could be improved and what should be added to the website’s eCommerce roadmap.
The Magento Migration Process
Migrating to Magento 2 from either Magento 1 or another platform follows the same process. The scope of the migration must first be defined through a business immersion workshop. If you’re migrating from Magento 1 then we will also review your existing codebase to see how existing bespoke and third-party extensions work, particularly when it comes to integration with third-party systems or complex functionality. Once the scope has been agreed the product team will commence Backend development to construct the functionality required for the website, and the Frontend team will develop the Magento 2 theme (either from your existing designs, or our UX Design team can develop new designs). All our projects run through a full QA (Quality Assurance) process, and training is delivered before UAT (User Acceptance Testing).
Technical SEO for Magento Migration
As a full-service eCommerce agency, our specialism not only lies within the Magento development team. We have a dedicated Magento Marketing team, who are embedded on all Magento projects. When it comes to migration, Technical SEO is particularly important. Ensuring that search visibility which has been developed over time is maintained (as a minimum) and maximised throughout migration is particularly important.
