When Magento 2 was first launched in 2010 it promised to be a game changer for the ecommerce industry. Over the years it’s been constantly improved and updated by Magento and today it is the most cutting edge and feature rich ecommerce platform in the market. If you’re already on Magento 1.x, then upgrading to Magento 2.0 is the best way forward if you want to take your ecommerce business to the next level.
Magento 2 offers tremendous benefits over Magento 1.X thanks to plethora of features it provides.
Some of key benefits it provides include:
Magento 2 is mobile friendly and supports responsive design out of the box, from the default theme onwards. It also provides a faster, more streamlined checkout by eliminating the redundant Checkout as Guest / Login / Create Account options provided in Magento 1.X
Magento 2 offers Full Page Caching out-of- the box along with support for Varnish 4. It is also compatible with the Hip Hop Virtual Machine (HHVM 3.6), which is used by Facebook to achieve on the fly PHP compilation, for increased page speeds.
One of the biggest improvements in Magento 2 is an optimized database indexer and optimized queries, which have enhanced query speeds and page load times.
Magento 2 comes with integrated automated testing capabilities such as Unit Testing, Integration Testing, Functional Testing, Performance Testing, Regression Testing etc. helping you automate quality assurance processes and cut down web store go-live times
The Magento 2 code base contains no up-optimized code and offers improved support for HTML 5 along with a superior CSS pre-processor. Customization is also easier with Magento 2 due to simplified upgrade processes and more streamlined themes and layouts (as compared to Magento 1.X).
