Why Migrate?

Migration from DotNetNuke is a strategic decision to mitigate risks and strengthen your digital business. Why should you take this leap?

Security Vulnerabilities

As with many legacy platforms, DNN has had many confirmed security vulnerabilities, many of which have the potential to jeopardize your business and compromise your sensitive data. Migrating allows you to transition to a platform with robust security features, ensuring a safer online environment for both you and your users.

Third-Party Dependencies

Many users use third-party extensions and service providers to enhance the functionality of the application. Such a reliance can pose challenges, especially when they become outdated or incompatible. A migration offers an opportunity to transition to a platform with more extensive, flexible, and up-to-date functionality, reducing dependency and security risks.

Outdated Features

Unfortunately, DNN might struggle to keep pace with the latest features and innovations as technology evolves. Migration allows you to break free from outdated structures, ensuring your website remains equipped with cutting-edge features and customizable enough to meet evolving user expectations.

Limited Flexibility and Customization

You may be unable to adapt your website to meet specific business and market needs because of DNN's limitations in flexibility and customization. Migrating opens the door to platforms that offer greater adaptability, allowing your site to evolve with your changing requirements.

Performance Concerns

Performance issues are common in legacy systems, and DNN is no exception. Performance issues are difficult to diagnose and can significant impact the speed and responsiveness of your website. A migration allows you to optimize performance, ensuring a faster and smoother user experience.

Limited Integration Capabilities

DNN's integration capabilities may fall short if you need to connect to new tools and technologies. Migration allows you to explore platforms with robust integration capabilities, ensuring seamless connectivity and compatibility with the latest technologies.

Upgrades and Maintenance are Costly

The DNN commercial product suite (Evoq) is now owned by a private equity firm whose business model is focused maximizing their return on investment by providing minimal support services while at the same time increasing license fees on an annual basis. Maintaining a commercial installation of DNN, especially in terms of upgrades and maintenance, can be very expensive. Strategic migration allows you to optimize your budget by choosing a platform that offers efficient and cost-effective maintenance options.

Limited Community and Support

Over the years, DNN has experienced a gradual decline in its stakeholder community, including users, vendors, consultants, hosting providers, and open-source contributors. Moving to a platform with a more dynamic and active community provides better support, resources, and a collaborative environment for solving problems and sharing ideas.

The Migration Process

Step 1. Assessment and Planning

Here, we comprehensively assess the existing DNN website to identify key functionalities, content, and dependencies. We document current functionalities and third-party modules and define potential challenges and risks.

Step 2. Choosing a Modern Platform

This step is all about selecting a modern alternative based on your system's specific needs and goals. We consider all factors, including ease of use, scalability, and available features.

Step 3. Data Migration

This is where the transfer of content, media, and data from DNN to the selected platform happens. We convert data into a format compatible with the new solution.

Step 4. Design

Here, we recreate or adapt the existing design elements or create a totally new design to ensure consistency in branding and visual identity.

Step 5. Functionality Integration

At this stage, we implement and configure functionalities required on the new platform to provide you with all the needed features.

Step 6. Testing

We provide thorough testing to identify and resolve any issues: functionality testing for all components, testing website responsiveness across devices, addressing and fixing any bugs or discrepancies.

Step 7. User Training and Documentation

It is essential to prepare users for any changes and show them all the new platform's capabilities. So, we provide training to adapt them to the new solution. We also ensure ongoing support.

Step 8. Launch and Monitoring
