Our current platform, Magento Community Edition 1.9, is slated to receive security patches until June of 2020, according to the documentation on Magento’s website

https://magento.com/blog/magento-news/supporting-magento-1-through-june-2020 https://magento.com/sites/default/files/magento-open-source-software-maintenance-policy.pdf

I have heard from alternate sources that Magento CE 1.9 will only be supported until October of this year (though I find that highly suspect). Secondly, what would a transition to a Magento Open Source 2.x version look like down the road when 1.9 eventually reaches end of support?

Things that you will need to do for migration from your Magento 1.x to Magento 2.x

1.)Theme Migration: You have to either buy a similar theme if available or else develop your own theme.

2.)Extension Migration: Find if any similar functionality module is availbe for Magento 2.x, if not availabe have to develop it.

3.)Customization Migration: All the customizations that you made again need to rewritten if not compatible if with Magento 2.x, there is a tool for it: https://github.com/magento/code-migration

4.)Data migration: This step involves migrating the database from Magento 1.x to Magento 2.x database. There is a tool for it from Magento 2. It migrates the data into 3 steps: Settings,Data,Delta . (Link for more information:https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/migration/migration-tool.html)

You will need a developer or developer's who have atleast few months of experience on Magento 2.
