From 7 to 9
Drupal 7 (D7) is moving towards end of life. On 28 November 2022, Drupal will stop its support of D7. What does this mean? Your website will no longer be secure, there will be no more updates, and you run the risk of security breaches with far-reaching consequences.
From 8 to 9
Drupal 8 (D8) also has an end-of-life date on the horizon: 2 November 2021. That’s when the support of the underlying Symfony platform ends, increasing risk for your platform.
Preparation is the key to success
Since the transition from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 requires less than a Drupal 7 migration, there is no need to panic. However, you should consider all your options and draw up a migration plan. The switch also gives you the chance to take your platforms to the next level, not just complete a simple version upgrade. Drupal 9 is much more than a CMS: it’s a true Digital Experience Platform (DXP).
