As an online retailer, maintaining an up-to-date version of your Magento store should be a priority, to ensure you are PCI compliant. Magento regularly releases updates throughout the year—some are larger version updates, and others are small security or bug patches to be added on. Maintaining your upgrade path with Magento, keeps you up to speed with security, new features and enhancements to support your online site.
We have supported our clients with many upgrades over the years, from small jumps in versions such as 2.4.2-2.4.3, to larger jumps such as 2.3.7-2.4.4.
At Absolute we try and ensure that we share information with our clients as early as possible when Adobe have released and explain why they should consider upgrading sooner than later.
The understand that the upgrade path during 2021/2022 has been difficult for all clients on a Magento Installation. We took feedback and concerns from our clients and attended multiple webinars to understand the future upgrade paths and how they would look, so that we could ensure that we could support our clients with their upgrade experience.
We have put a great deal of internal resources into the planning, preparation and process of Magento upgrades over the last year to ensure that the upgrade path is as smooth as possible.
When deciding to upgrade you Magento 2 site with Absolute, you will be allocated a dedicated account manager who will guide you through the process of the upgrade, and be on hand to support you from start to finish.
We tailor our upgrade journey to each client to meet their needs, providing them the option to opt in to a custom test plan creation, which allows Absolute to conduct the majority of testing on the site, taking the strain from our customers when it comes to them to test. This considers modules, bespoke functionality and much more.

1. Upgrade the installation itself
2. Pre-fix testing
4. Post-fix testing
