Should I migrate to Magento 2?
Hi, guys. I had mixed feelings before about Magento 2 migration. But recently I’ve heard, that since this month, there will no longer be any official security patches for Magento 1. And therefore, it’s time to embrace change and upgrade to Magento 2, because otherwise, you’ll be a sitting duck for hackers. What you think? Is this for real?

Hello, Jimmy! Yes, you're right, Adobe has already abandoned the support of Magento 1 platform and has fully concentrated on Magento 2 improvements.
Since now, your business is not secure neither for you nor for your customers' personal and payment data. So you have several options to choose from.
1. Migrate your store to Magento 2 with all customers, orders history, and products - https://whidegroup.com/blog/how-to-migrate-magento-1-to-magento-2/
2. Choose another platform to migrate to - https://whidegroup.com/blog/magento-vs-shopify/. This is a tricky task, since everything depends on your current business size, customizations implemented in your Magento 1 store, and your requirements to updated store functionality.
3. Leave it as it is...No, forget it! That's not an option!
By staying with Magento 1, you not only risk customer data, but you also lose your competitive edge because new features and innovations will only come out for Magento 2.
Magento 2 delivers a modern, scalable ecommerce solution for businesses of all sizes, and it offers unmatched flexibility and customizations. Compared to Magento 1, Magento 2 can process more orders per hour on the same hardware with faster server response times, which provides customers with a stress-free experience.

Hi, Jimmy! Sure! And as soon as possible! While you can still use Magento 1 for as long as you want, the platform will no longer be supported and no security updates will be issued. There is no point in waiting until that happens. Planning, implementing, testing and deploying a migration to Magento 2 can take a substantial amount of time.
The earlier you start, the more time you have to get everything right. More info you can find here https://elogic.co/services/magento-2-migration/
