Magento 2 is going to gradually replace Magento 1, even though it doesn’t seem to be too urgent at the moment. It’s better to be fully prepared for moving though. And walking through real data migration projects will help you know available options to get ready with Magento 2 data migration.
Today we are going to discover a new successful Magento CE Data Migration project at Ubertheme. In this case study, Jeroen Schermer (Director at Freelaunch.nl) tells us about their Magento 2 data migration project; using UB Data Migration Pro to migrate Client/Order data and all 230,000 products to Magento 2.
Big thanks to Jeroen Schermer for your time and contributions to share your migration project with our friends at Ubertheme.
*** Feb 8, 2017 Note: We did work with Radford on the staging Winetasting.com server during the data migration process. At present this domain has been changed to a new one (confidential).
Today we have a good chance to interview Radford Castro -- Lead Developer at Winetasting.com. He’s responsible for the day-to-day duties that are related to the web aspect of the business and working on migrating from an older platform to Magento 2.x.
Back to May 2016, Radford approached our team at Ubertheme for the custom data migration inquiry. And until July, after Winetasting.com got things ready for the data migration project, Radford and our team moved forward with migrating 382,047 customer entities from Magento 1 to Magento 2.
Even though the project narrows down to migrating customer entity only, this case study gives you an idea of why Winetasting.com decided to start with Magento 2 and how they got the data migration ready to take advantage of this new platform.
Thanks to Radford for sitting down with us to share about your Winetasting.com data migration project.
