Vote: I'm Leaving You: The risks of dumping your old CMS for Drupal and how to manage them

Nicole Lind

has proposed I'm Leaving You: The risks of dumping your old CMS for Drupal and how to manage them for DrupalCon Denver:

In the old days, moving to Drupal often meant converting static pages or templates to Drupal nodes. Today, it is rare that we get to build a site from scratch. Reality is that most major Drupal projects are now migrations from other content management systems.

Taking on such a migration is not a trivial decision for an organization. There is a great deal of complexity in the reasons for migrating, but the decision is often not understood well amongst the various stakeholders.

This session is not a workshop about why to choose Drupal. Rather, I will discuss what to expect after the decision is made and techniques for managing the change given the various reasons you may have for doing so.

If you're interested in this session, please vote on it. And if you have comments or questions regarding the proposed session, please comment below. Even if it isn't accepted at DrupalCon Denver, Nicole has been presenting it and we value your feedback.
