Why you might need content migration and consolidation

There are many reasons you might need content migration and consolidation, such as:

  • Proprietary liability: You’re currently using a proprietary CMS and the cost to keep it up to date and secure is too high.

  • Legacy liability: You’re currently on an older, legacy CMS that’s no longer supported.

  • Content restrictions: Your current CMS doesn’t allow you to manage content and/or menu items without depending on expensive development time.

  • Digital transformation: As part of your digital transformation strategy you’re looking to consolidate all of your sites onto one platform.

  • Content consolidation and refresh: Your site has too many pages, is difficult to navigate to find content, and/or content is out of date or needs to be realigned with a new style guide.

Benefits of content migration and consolidation

The benefits of content migration and consolidation include:

  • Content management: Ability to easily manage your content without relying on a developer to update content or change your site’s information architecture (IA) and menu items.

  • An easy-to-use CMS: Access the many benefits of GovCMS including, fully maintained hosting system, simple ‘no-coding’ content management interface, compliant with DTA design systems and best practice responsive design frameworks, and built on a secure public cloud.

  • Content consolidation: As part of the migration process, there’s an opportunity to audit legacy content, consolidate the IA, and update the content and/or the tone of the content.

  • Repeatable, predictable: With automation, content migrations become repeatable and predictable, which provides greater confidence, faster migrations, and high accuracy, eliminating human error for rework.

  • Agency has signed up to GovCMS with the Department of Finance and has a SaaS or PaaS account ready to be migrated to
