Drupal Migration for Version Upgrade

drupal migration

Drupal 6 has already been marked as unsupported as Drupal 8 has come along. With the advancements that Drupal 8 has brought along this is the right time to migrate to Drupal 8 and be updated about the latest security patches and open a new world of possibilities as Drupal 8 is out of the box headless.

We at Faichi have extensive experience in migrating Drupal sites.  With past experiences we have learnt that the process of migrating the Drupal sites has many repetitive steps and there is an opportunity to make the migration process faster.

Our team has hence created a Migration Automation Script that automates numerous steps in the process of migrations, hence expediting the overall Drupal migration process. Drupal migration now has become less time and effort taking process for us.
