All good things must come to an end. That delicious meal. That fun vacation. It's sad, we know. But anytime something ends, something new begins. When it comes to Magento 1, the good news is your next eCommerce solution awaits: and it will be much, much better.
On March 26th, 2019 Magento released updates for versions 1 and 2, both Open Source and Commerce. Magento included considerations for version upgrades or a bare minimum security patch across their offerings. By extending these upgrades and patches to their user base, Magento is signaling the importance of this recent upgrade set.
The first step in creating an online store is choosing which eCommerce platform to use. We at IWD feel that Magento is still the best choice for businesses of any size. In 2017 Magento was still the #1 eCommerce platform, powering over 30% of the top 100,000 online stores.
With the rapid advancements and competition in the commerce environment, it’s becoming increasingly challenging for businesses to reach their full potential. Upgrading your Magento store is a vital part in making sure your site has access to all the technological improvements being regularly released.
