A Magento 2 upgrade offers major benefits over Magento 1.x thanks to the many of the features that Magento 2 provides. Some of the key benefits it provides include:

Improved UI/UX With Simplified Checkout

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


Enhanced Caching

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.

Top Notch Performance with Enterprise-Grade Scalability

Magento offers enhanced performance and scalability, with 50% faster page loading times through techniques like in-browser static content caching, image compression, data bundling, added support for concurrent updates and use of jQuery and RequireJS for better management of JavaScript.


Refined Database

To achieve the data quality you can trust in where everything works seamlessly, you need data refining. One of the biggest improvements in Magento 2 is an optimised database indexer and optimised queries, which have enhanced query speeds and page load times.

Automated Testing Capabilities

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.

Clean, Modular Code Base

The Magento 2 code base contains no up-optimised code and offers improved support for HTML 5 along with a superior CSS pre-processor. Customisation is also easier with Magento 2 due to simplified upgrade processes and more streamlined themes and layouts (as compared to Magento 1.X).
