Content migration is a core competency of our firm. We have extensive experience using Drupal tools like feeds, migrate (module), D2D module, feeds commerce, commerce migrate, Microsoft’s SQL server management studio, and MySql workbench to migrate content and files from older Drupal versions or other platforms (ColdFusion, .net).
Drupal 8, Drupal 8, Drupal 8
Drupal 8 is a revolutionary revision of Drupal that uses a complete new core based on the PHP framework, Symfony (https://symfony.com/). In Drupal 8, all of the best aspects of Drupal like taxonomy, views, and entities (just to name a few) remain while the new core gives developers an even better framework to build powerful websites. Simple Information has been working with Drupal 8 since even before it was officially released (yes, this site is Drupal 8!). This combined with our migration experience makes us the perfect choice for your Drupal upgrade to Drupal 8. Contact Us now to learn more and get a free assessment.
Stuck on old technology?

If not done correctly, migrations can be extremely costly and frustrating to clients who are used to their current site structure. Stick with a firm that has experience in this area.

Still not sure about Drupal, check our FAQ and Myth Busting about Open Source Technologies:
Open source software is not as secure as proprietary software
Because open source means that the source code is available to the public for free, many believe it is inherently less secure than software from a proprietary vendor. This is only true for open source software that is no longer supported by a community or private organization. Our platform, based on Drupal (Drupal.org), is supported by more than 20,000 developers worldwide. This means that security threats and security fixes are immediately posted by the community. As a result, security updates are usually available at a faster pace than proprietary software.
The underlying code is not very important to my project
Building your website on top of code that is obsolete or not well supported can cause support issues in the future. We use Drupal because:
Its popularity has been growing at a record pace for the last 15 years.
It is preferred by the U.S. government (whitehouse.gov, commerce.gov, etc.)
It is supported by 20,000 developers around the globe.
Companies that only build government related websites would be better for my project
Features requested by government institutions like social media integration, UX, interactive forms and maps, as well as countless others have been successfully implemented by SI on other projects.
Firms that only focus on government related websites will most likely use a template for your design. This can give your site a “cookie-cutter” feel.
If I host on the cloud, I’ll be locked in, and it will be difficult to change hosting
Your site based on Drupal will be fully exportable at any time. To change hosts you can simply export your site files and database and send them to the new host. Then, redirect your domain to the new host. This process can be done in less than an hour.
