4 Reasons to upgrade now

No more upgrades
Technologies advance every single day. Magento keeps on top of these changes pretty well. They put out updates frequently. Without those updates it’s very likely that functionality will fail after some time. You will have to hire developers to keep up on just bug fixes.
Better Performance
Magento 2 was redesigned with performance in mind. Page loads in Magento 2 are 30% to 50% faster. Studies show that Magento 2 can handle up to 39% more orders per hour with 66% faster add-to-cart times than Magento 1.
No more security patches
No more security patches means your customer’s data is vulnerable and could be intercepted by malicious hackers. Magento takes security very seriously and releases security patches frequently. Upgrading to Magento 2 allows you to stay on top of security.
Cost will rise
Because you will have to maintain antiquated code you will need a development team to do this. Your team will have to findbugs, fix bugs, and patch security holes. This gets costly very quick.

How long does it take to upgrade?

Our average migration takes 800-1200 hours with an average timeframe of 3-5 months. There are many factors that determine the timeframe.

The most intensive efforts and those that impact the upgrade costs include:

Custom themes will need to be developed from scratch, as the Html code from Magento 1 isn’t transferrable to Magento 2. Many retailers are using this as an opportunity to refresh their design, as the front-end theme needs to be redeveloped anyway
Installed Extensions
Extensions have to be reinstalled, as Magento 2 requires Magento 2 extensions. If a stable extension isn’t available then functionality may need to be modified or a new extension selected
Custom Code
Most Magento 1 modules are not compatible with Magento 2. Vendors are slowly creating Magento 2 capable modules but if thos modules don’t exist for M2 then those modules will need to be rewritten.
Third Party Integrations
If your site has 3rd party integrations then those integration will need to be rewritten to work with Magento 2.
