Drupal Upgrade

When you install a new version of Drupal, you can expect it to be the current version for around two years. Then you’re likely to need to upgrade. Why? The newest version of Drupal usually has new features and has been optimized to perform better. If you want to take advantage of these changes, you’ve got to upgrade. It’s important to note that some upgrades are not backward compatible. That means you will have to migrate your data to the new version and will not be able to go back to the previous version. Our team is here to help you make the right decisions in upgrading and to help you import your data into the new version of Drupal.

Why Migrate Your Data?

  • New modules are available
  • Better security
  • Improvements in performance, such as scalable features
  • Better compatibility with JavaScript and jQuery
