Legacy CMS migrations

If you still have static HTML or any other legacy CMS based sites, We at Anubavam possess a vast knowledge of open-source and proprietary CMS platforms. We provide seamless Drupal 8 migration to meet today’s standards at minimal pain or cost.

Drupal 8 Upgrade

We can perform Drupal migration and upgrade services from Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 to the latest Drupal 8 version using the built-in user interface for migration.

Migration Assessment

In order to migrate your legacy system or HTML site to the newest Drupal 8 CMS, we will access your existing environment using our tools and assess the number of files (server side, client side and images), duplicate files and content, existing database structure, third-party integration, possible replacement for DLLs, Jar files or legacy plug-ins used before any work begins.

Migration Strategy

Drupal 8 migration strategy includes different approaches to deliverables, plan for the team and its roles, and also the launch date to ensure that our customers grow, improve and profit.

Scalable Architecture

Redesigning a website and improve the site performance without losing SEO is vital. During the migration process our team will create site maps, top menus on Drupal 8 and decide if there are any microsites and landing pages. Drupal 8 lets you set display configuration for each field and content type.


Our user experience designers will go through your existing site analytics and come up with wireframes and design options for the new site. We will prepare the taxonomy and image files needed on D8 site.


Actual implementation begins as Drupal developers start writing scripts to load the content to the new CMS, convert designs into CMS themes, build workflows, taxonomy, architect content management system to fit the site architecture. Integrate third-party sites like Salesforce, HRM, Anaytics, and Social Media sites that are used already.

QA Testing

The new website will be tested with our tools to match old content, URL structure, 301 redirect engines to maintain existing ranking on search engines. The new site will be tested heavily by our load testing tools to identify its behavior during high traffic, Javascript embeds that cause any sluggishness and third party seamless integrations. The site will also be tested on several different desktop and mobile browsers.

Data Transfer

We carefully execute this process as this might require seamless integration on content currently being generated, DNS change with very little downtime on the site.

Search engine friendly

Drupal 8 is a SEO-friendly CMS optimized for major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask and others without the need of buying a third party tools for search.

Metadata strategy

Drupal 8 provides a robust metadata framework and we can easily migrate the metatag data into the entity's corresponding fields without errors and mistakes which otherwise requires massive rework.

Multilingual migration

Drupal 8 CMS caters for multiple languages both on the front and back end. We can perform multi-language migrations for successful implementation of multilingual content to Drupal 8.
