Challenge

Our customer, Renovator Store, provides premium renovation materials. They helped 40+ million homeowners improve their houses. For business management, the customer used Magento 1. Yet, it stopped meeting their growing business demands, so they decided to migrate to Magento Commerce Cloud. Renovator Store required a smooth migration of their business-critical data, third-party extensions, and a WordPress blog. They held a tender and chose Staylime for project implementation. We deployed a Magento 2 Commerce installation, using the Data Migration Tool.

Solution

We encountered many errors along the way, including mapping issues and corrupted records, which we successfully eliminated. Besides, we had an additional challenge: the customer’s migrated database had obsolete records due to which Magento 2 couldn’t start. We solved this problem by cleaning the database and eliminating the old rubbish. To help the customer consolidate their entire architecture under a single platform, our team migrated their Wordpress blog to Aheadworks’ Magento 2 Blog extension, and their Reward Points extension to Magento Commerce’s native functionality. Renovator Store entrusted their store redesign to a local vendor for on-premise control and then got back to us with a new design for delta migration.

Results

Renovator Store introduced new changes to their Magento 2 store although we advised against it. Therefore, we received the modified store’s database dump. To prevent errors, we deleted all obsolete data and performed a successful overnight delta migration. Then we returned the updated database dump to the customer’s dedicated support team and they made a switch to the new Magento 2 store. We successfully overcame all project challenges and migrated the customer’s store to Magento Commerce Cloud.
