When migrating your organisation’s information to a new Content Management System (CMS), there are many factors to take into account. There are also many pitfalls to avoid, such as technical issues and poor user interfaces. Many CMS may not be compatible with your organisation’s existing tools, databases and systems that you would like to integrate and continue using. On the other hand, many CMS systems will work perfectly fine, but may not offer the best fit for your organisation’s needs.
Before you can put a firm CMS migration plan in place for your organisation you will need to hold informal and more formal planning sessions, research will need to be undertaken and insights from all this will need to be constructed into well thought out proposals.
To assist you and your organisation we have put together this article of important considerations to help you make an informed decision about migrating to a new CMS system.
