Infographic: Magento 1 Vs Magento 2 - Why Upgrade?

Migrating from Magento to Magento 2 is a sensitive topic. Users often argue on the notion that if Magento 1x is working fine, why should they invest in migrating to the new platform? It’s an issue that needs to be addressed with facts and statistics ground up.

Magento to Magento migration has been the hottest topic since the release of Magento 2.0. The launch of both Community edition and Enterprise edition has raised several questions regarding their performance capacity, structural improvements and the abundance of features that was promised in the new release. In the mist of all this, merchants have begun to question if the new platform is worth the effort or not, given that the current versions are already working fine for their daily ecommerce operations.

To clear this mist of questions and insecurities, Team FMEextensions has made its mission to inform Magento users what the new platform is offering and why migrating to Magento 2 is the best option by far.

The most important improvement that Magento developers have made is speed. Speed was among the primary concerns of Magento merchants since it caused a lot of abandonments. Magento 2 is now capable of loading pages 50% faster and running the checkout process 38% faster compared to the previous versions. The improved code has now reduced the page loading time to a maximum of 2 seconds, eliminating bounce rates and cart abandonments caused by sluggish page loading. Furthermore, Magento 2 can take on 117% more orders and handle 2.1 million more page views per hour compared to the older versions. This has allowed Magento 2 to secure higher conversion rates and better UX than the past.

With so much improvements in speed, Magento 2 has also made big leaps in security, SEO capability and Back office usability. Magento 2 offers more secure payment gateways and keeps the user data protected under all costs. The SEO rich features give an extra edge to online marketing abilities of the store for better ranking on search engines. The admin panel has been streamlined with fewer details and easy navigation to enhance user experience without compromising store functionalities.
