Released in November 2015, Magento 2 is a major version change. With rewritten code from remodelling indexing, caching, PHP usage and redesigned back-end architecture Magento 2 is a world apart from any of the 1.0 series. But is it the right solution for you?
At web’s the word, we have had numerous discussions between ourselves and have come to the conclusion – they can’t be compared definitively.
Should you move to Magento 2?
You could take the Magento 2 leap or perhaps wait it out a little. This is similar to the chicken and egg decision. At Web’s The Word, we have taken up a few Magento 2 projects for clients but have also recommended sticking with version 1.9 to other clients. Business needs versus extension availability is a prime factor which needs discussing at length when making the decision. Talk to us, let us sit on your side of the table and help you make a decision between Magento 1 and 2. The coffee’s on us!
