Why migrate from Drupal to WordPress?
There are a number of reasons we see organizations choose to make the switch. Generally, the change is motivated by increasing challenges faced with managing and maintaining a Drupal website, and then also by the surprisingly high costs of Drupal development.
Flexibility of WordPress
WordPress is a very flexible and agile platform. It is much easier to customize, extend and add new features than Drupal. As older Drupal websites built on Drupal 6 or 7 start to age, they become increasingly difficult to maintain and upgrade. These challenges can be avoided by migrating from Drupal to WordPress.
When teams are able to better utilize their existing skill sets and implement new features more quickly, they can focus on other (probably much more important!) tasks and projects.
Reduce Website Costs
With Drupal 8’s arrival in 2015, developers saw a shift in how Drupal sites were built towards an object-oriented design approach. Drupal has since required developers to have a developed knowledge of the framework and also of broader programming.
This increase in development complexity has led to an increase in development costs associated with Drupal projects, with each project seemingly requiring more and more advanced engineers to solve even the simplest of problems.
WordPress enables organizations to reduce this complexity and the costs associated with development.
