WEBSITE MIGRATION — WHAT’S INVOLVED?

WHAT IS WEBSITE MIGRATION?

First thing’s first, what do we actually mean by website migration? In its simplest form, migration is the process of moving from the use of one operating environment to another operating environment that is, in most cases, thought to be a better one. Migration can involve upgrading to new hardware, new software or both.

At BT48 our migrations have most recently involved transferring data from one Content Management System (CMS) to another — either an older version of Drupal to Drupal 8 or from another CMS like WordPress, Expression Engine, or Terminal4 to Drupal 8.

WHAT IS THE MIGRATION PROCESS?

A site migration and redesign is not a one-step process and obviously there are some risks involved with the process. However, over the years we at BT48.com have gained a great deal of experience and expertise around migration and have developed a process to mitigate these risks involving 3 separate stages:

1. Pre-Migration

3. Post-Migration

BT48.COM APPROACH

At BT48.com we understand that the above process always needs to be tailored to suit your business/organisation’s unique migration needs.

We believe that from the outset, in any migration process, clear, honest and open dialogue between you as the client and the web development agency is essential. This ensures that your the website created is one that best suits your clients’ needs, matches your business objectives and that the migration process flows as smoothly as possible.
