The website migration

The website migration is simply having our old web pages redirect to new pages. We will explain in more detail what will be different after the migration in the later paragraphs.

The topic of website migration was brought up within the organization near the end of 2022. The team members who participated in the discussion noticed that the existing web pages were not providing the desired user experience and that the website needed a major overhaul. As a result, extensive research was conducted to evaluate the options for website migration, which lasted another 2 months.

Why the migration?

Various aspects, such as the costs involved, the expected timelines, the impact on existing users, and search engine optimization, were thoroughly examined during this time. The team also investigated the various technical approaches that could be used for the migration and weighed the benefits and drawbacks of each option.

After carefully weighing all the pros and cons and holding numerous conversations, it was decided to consolidate the current web pages. The team believed that this strategy would improve user experience while also making website management easier. The team then started the transfer process and worked incredibly hard to guarantee a seamless transition with as little impact as possible on the website's current users.
