Magento 2 is known as the next generation open source platform that is faster, easier and more secure than Magento 1.x. Magento 2, officially, is an “open source eCommerce R&D project facilitating the improvement of Magento core products”.  Demand of upgrading to Magento 2 is about 30% of total Magento migration process. 

However, Is it the best time for magento migration from 1.9 to 2.0?  

Weak Community 
Magento 2 inherited large community from Magento 1. However, many developers and experts are continuing to research and learn about Magento 2 after a month of releasing. The previous communities are huge but they need time to become strong communities for Magento 2. 
Command line 
Magento 1 focuses on graphical user interface (GUI) with easy customization. GUI do not require complicated commands, so it is available for a beginner. GUI allow users to navigate through a system. You should get the benefits of WYSIWYG. It makes Magento be user-friendly. On the other hand, Magento 2 uses mainly Command Line. The command line has a big number of commands. It has a steep learning curve to cause many difficulties for new users without any experience to experienced users. 

The number of extension for Magento 2 is still limited in comparison with Magento 1. Most companies have to pay third party to install Magento extensions properly from essential extensions to advanced extensions. 
According to statistics of LitExtension - a provider of shopping cart migration tool, on average upgrade magento 1.7 to 2.0 magento connect is about 20% larger than a store upgrade magento 1.7 to magento 1.9. If you have plan to move magento to magento 2, professionals recommend you to do it in 2017. Magento will support Magento 1 until 2018. You can do data migration magento 1.4 vers 1.9 with Magento migration tool easier and wait a suitable time to next upgrade. Do not rush to upgrade Magento to Magento 2 unless you prepare carefully.
