Migrations

Moving to a new CMS or rebuilding for an upgrade is an exciting project. You’ll likely get lots of new features to help amplify the value of your content and it’s often an opportunity to reorganize. The complexity can be a lot more than just a simple export and import and each scenario and platform brings unique needs.
