Website Migration Process
The legacy Baylor CMS will be retired in Q4 of 2023, and all BUCMS sites will need to be archived or migrated in advance.
Most BUCMS to Drupal migrations happen within a day, while nearly all take less than a week to complete. The Digital Marketing team partners with your team to migrate content from the Baylor CMS to Drupal following the existing structure of the site.
Here's an overview of the process:
- The Digital Marketing team creates a new Drupal site and arranges a Drupal training session for your content managers.
- We arrange a Teams call and work collaboratively to migrate content to Drupal.
- After the content is moved, we launch the new site, redirecting web traffic from your old BUCMS site to the new Drupal one.
In many cases, this happens over the course of several hours. And the Digital Marketing team is available to help with questions you have during the migration and once your site is up and running using the Drupal platform.
