Why this migration is required ?
There are many small scale companies building Arduino based products. These are very well supported by Arduino IDE and community. It is very easy to integrate these and create solutions. I had posted such articles in Arduino category.
However one can create one reliable and cost effective product by designing custom based board only. That gives flexibility to select only required hardware and software components.
Engineers, working in Arduino based platform, don’t bother for the abstracted technology in the system.
You can take a quick test to understand your current status in Embedded System knowledge. If you score good points , you are already beyond Arduino. This is a simple quiz with mixed embedded topics.

Why should I learn all above if ready to use hardware and software available ?
Development Kit or Evaluation boards are just for reference , Not for product. Almost all development kit vendors mention that clearly. Those are provided to check the basic concept. Actual product needs optimized designed. This is very simple to understand. Suppose 10 components are sufficient to meet your target application requirements and you are using one reference board with 15 components , so 5 extra components will add cost to design as well as overhead for reliability. Same thing applies to software. If there are un-necessary functions or variables are enabled , those are overhead.
Why Arduino IDE based learning is not sufficient ?
Arduino library code is C++ based while majority of Embedded software is in C . I have observed that even experienced professionals , (4-5 yrs) with Arduino background, don’t understand the firmware basics. This blocks their growth in embedded career.
How can I migrate to Advance Embedded system design ?
You might have observed that developing any product using Arduino platform doesn’t take much time. This is because you follow just DIY steps. However if you want to learn embedded system designer , you have to spend time in learning various skills such as Embedded C , ARM architecture, RTOS, Linux , Protocols etc
