Why migrate to Drupal 8?

  • Drupal 8 has the functionalities that have been used the most in its CORE.
  • Drupal 8 comes with the popular web editor CKEditor WYSIWYG as standard.
  • The fast editing feature of Drupal 8 - Quick Edit - allows content editors to make changes to the page through a simple editing interface, instead of having to load a form especially for editing content.
  • Drupal 8 is more flexible and extensible and therefore can be used to develop both small and simple websites and larger and more complex websites. Therefore, when choosing to consolidate a project using Drupal, the development efforts required in the maintenance of a large website can be reduced.
  • At API level, Drupal 8 provides mechanisms to interact with your data through a REST API, which allows easy integration with other systems.
  • To date, the drupal policy has only supported two main versions; Drupal 7 would normally reach the end of life when Drupal 9 is launched. Because a lot of sites could still be using Drupal 7 by 2020, it has been decided to extend the support of Drupal 7 until November 2021. This may be a inconvenient at the time of launching Drupal 9 because all Drupal 7 will have to take a drastic leap to be updated .
