Here at Big Eye Deers, we love Magento and have explained the reasons why before. It is fantastic e-commerce platform that suits every business’ needs and ensures businesses have the online presence and UX it requires to succeed. So, when Magento announced the release of Magento 2, we were definitely excited!
Magento 1.x is a great product, but Magento 2.0 takes it to a whole new level. Below are a few of the new features Magento 2.0 has to offer.
Magento 2.0 features a new modular code base which means easier customisation, faster time-to-market and greater deployment flexibility to public or private cloud environments.
The new modular code base means there is less complexity and costs when it comes to maintaining and upgrading your website. This means you can implement new and innovative functionality with ease.
With easier upgrade and maintenance, this means you can continuously improve the UX for your visitors and drive higher sales and conversions.
Magento is suitable for all companies from start-ups to large enterprises. The platform can expand your online marketing potential and grow with you as your business grows.
Customer experience is important for any e-commerce site, and Magento 2.0 definitely delivers. It has engaging and personalised customer experience across all devices, and the new checkout is now easier to customise and improve for better conversion rates.
Not just improving the customer side, Magento 2.0 also offers merchants an easier experience in the backend. The new admin panel design offers a more efficient interface that saves time when managing tasks and you can even customise the view of the admin panel to suit your business needs.
Magento 2.0 comes with upgraded security features, including tight out-of-the-box integrations with a number of payment gateways. The upgraded Magento provides individuals with improved security and the ability to get to the first level of PCI compliance.
Magento 2 has pretty much been built from the ground up. The framework has gone through a big overhaul, which means upgrading from 1.x to 2.0 is going to take a lot more work than just simply flicking a switch.
Fortunately, data such as customer, product and order data can be migrated from Magento 1.x to 2.0, but when it comes to the rest of the site you will need to start from scratch.
The upside to this is you get to start fresh and it's the perfect opportunity to see what worked and what didn’t. You then get a brand spanking new website with all the awesome functionality of Magento 2!
