Strategic Migration to M2: How to Run an RFP Process
This presentation will start with a high level overview of the Magento space and the M2 timeline, with an explanation of what that means for the merchants in the room. PHP 5.6/7.0 EOL, Magento 1.9/1.14 EOL, and Magento Cloud will be discussed as well how system integrators are reacting to the shift. There will be a walkthrough of how NOT to build an RFP or approach migration – it’s not right click, save as M2! Learn how to evaluate your business, calculate ROI on the migration, and how to get the right group of internal stakeholders together. See examples of how to build a “good” goal-oriented RFP and And delve into the internal build vs buy decisions. Step through how to select potential partners, how to manage the RFP process, how to select a winner, and finally, how to manage the project with realistic goals and timelines.
