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.
