The thought of migrating your website to a modern CMS like Drupal might seem intimidating, however in most cases the benefits will far outweigh the challenges. That's what the team at Multnomah County realized. During a site-wide redesign, they were faced with decision of upgrading their 61 Vignette sites from version 7.3 to 7.5 or choosing an alternate solution like Drupal. After spending months slowly upgrading a few sites at a time, spending thousands of dollars, and in the end not gaining the functionality they needed - it was time for a change.
In this presentation, Acquia and our guest speaker - Joshua Mitchell, Applications Manager General Government/Open Source from Multnomah County - discuss how he and his team successfully turned around their website redesign project. Drupal not only sped the process of launching and maintaining new sites, but also allowed them to move their hosting infrastructure to the cloud, significantly reducing long term costs. This session will cover:
* Requirements included in the evaluation process
* Key factors considered when choosing Drupal
* Lessons learned by the Multnomah County team
