Content Migration


You have a spiffy new content managed website, how do you get all that content from your old site to the new?

Unlike pure data migration, content migration from an old website to a new one can bring a whole different set of unknown challenges. From embedded styles to content management system differences, moving the content that describes your organization, products and services can be extremely challenging. And, if not done correctly, it can waste hundreds or thousands of man-hours to manually repair any mistakes. Even if you already have a developer for your old and new website; give us a call to see how we can assist you with the migration of your content. From fully automated options to good old roll up your sleeves and move it options; we can help.

It’s a paradox of sorts. You have invested in a brand new website that now has a slick database driven content management system behind it. Finally, you can edit all of that content whenever you want without the help of a programmer or webmaster. Unfortunately, you haven’t thought about how to get the 500 pages of content that has been online since 1996 moved over to the new system. That’s where Open Professional Group can help. Our team will review your existing web content and work with you to develop a migration plan. The plan will include the approach to be taken, the key challenges in the migration (including how to resolve each), search engine optimization considerations, usability adjustments, customer impact and any other key points. Once a plan is defined, our team will go to work using a mix of tools ranging from fat finger style data entry to fully automated content migration options. In the end, the content gets migrated, your customers are happy and you don’t fall off of the face of the search engine landscape. Good, right?

Similar to pure data migration, every migration of content is different. What is the source website built upon? Is the content in a database or just static HTML files? Do you need to migrate everything or just parts of the site? Are you going to rewrite some areas of the content or will it all remain as it is today? Since every migration is different, talk to us and let’s see how we can help. We migrate content for clients every day and we are certain we can solve this challenge for you as well.

Of course, with any website development solution we create, we offer this service.
