Drupal 8

Custom Websites, Simpler Content Management

Although already popular among developers, Drupal 8 now brings the platform to the attention of website administrators, making it a strong competitor with other user-friendly platforms. Drupal 8 still maintains the same open source license and modular build that has made it a great platform for quickly building custom websites, but with the added benefit of an updated administrative experience that makes managing content much easier. With in-line editing features, updates to core features, and other improvements, Drupal 8 has cemented its position as one of the strongest CMS technology platforms on the market.

Migrating Your Website to Drupal 8

Website migrations can save data and design layouts from your old website, transferring it all to your new, whether you're on a completely different CMS platform, a completely custom-built website, or an older version of Drupal. When migrating your website, here's a few things you should consider: 

When migrating your website, you want to be sure that any custom extensions are accounted for and upgraded as well.

A migration is the perfect time for a redesign when your developers will have to re-theme your new website as a necessary part of the migration.

High-traffic seasons might be the worst time to launch a new website. While web development can happen without affecting your team and users, timing the launch of a new website should be done when an experience upheaval will be most convenient for users and admin.

With the variation between each business, it's difficult to say that there's a single CMS that's universally the best solution. But with our evaluation approach, which takes into account each platform's system architecture, estimated annual cost, and developer community size, it's easier for you to determine which CMS is right for you.
