We are going to upgrade one of our SDL Tridion implementation from 2013 SP1 to Web 8.5. We are using DD4T 1.3 with in-process while for the upgrade we are planning to use CIL. We are considering DD4T 2.2 for the upgrade but want to understand if there is any benefit\challenge we are going to have if we use DXA instead of DD4T so that it will be future proof considering merging of DD4T and DXA.
