DRUPAL 8 UPGRADE PATHS
If you are the owner of a Drupal 6 website, there is an imminent deadline for upgrade and migration. Drupal 6 was released almost 8 years ago in February of 2008. End-of-life support for Drupal 6 has been announced for February 24th, 2016. Now is the time to execute the upgrade of your Drupal 6 website to Drupal 7 or 8.
If you own a Drupal 7 website, there are many reasons to consider upgrading to the latest version, but it may not be necessary. Symmetri Technology will perform a complete website survey and provide you with an analysis of the benefits of the Drupal 8 platform for your business or organization.
DRUPAL 8 MIGRATION STRATEGIES
Every website upgrade project also comes with a content migration project. We will work with you to develop a comprehensive content migration strategyfor your upgrade. Ensuring that all of your content, user experience priorities, SEO rankings, and back end administration practices transition to the new platform is crucial for success. Let us build a content migration plan to accomplish all of these goals with training for your staff and users.
LAUNCHING A NEW DRUPAL 8 WEBSITE
Drupal 7 is still a strong web content management platform with full support for years to come. If you are planning a new Drupal web development project, we can guide you through the evaluation of Drupal 8 as your platform of choice. Once selected, our years of experience developing and deploying Drupal websites will quickly shift gears to Drupal 8. We will move your project forward confidently from initial strategy through design and development and beyond the launch with a DrupalCare support and maintenance plan.
