The release of Drupal 9 provides great opportunities and advantages for those creating new cloud-based applications. Drupal 9 is a cleaned-up version of Drupal 8. Drupal 9 delivers all the power, capability and ease of use to make it a true enterprise-ready tool, with features rivaling any CMS on the market. Whether upgrading from Drupal 7 or 8 to Drupal 9 or all together migrating from another CMS to Drupal 9, CIGNEX’s Drupal 9 migration and upgrade experts can make that happen both quickly and confidently by leveraging all the performance, features and scalability it comes with.
For Drupal 8 site owners who have been keeping their Drupal install up-to-date are in for the smoothest ride. The only differences between Drupal 8.9.0 and Drupal 9 is the removal of some deprecated APIs and the inclusion of updated third-party dependencies, such as Symfony and Twig.
For Drupal 7 site owners, there is no clear upgrade path. Upgrading from Drupal 7 usually involves rebuilding the site in the new version and migrating all content and configuration to the new site. This may require more resources, but it is a great opportunity to rethink the site structure and implement some major improvements.
