Upgrade to Ektron 9.0

Ektron 9.0 is the latest version of the complete enterprise web platform.  With new and improved features in content editing, esync, mobile compatibility, search, developer tools, digital experience hub, and cloud management, and more, it is empowering users at every stage of the web building process.

MethodFactory’s Ektron migration process enables existing Ektron customers to enjoy the new functionality and performance improvements in version 9.0.  Our project-proven migration process includes the following considerations.

  • Network Architecture Audit: review of current stage, authoring, production environments for use in a 9.0 migration
  • Content Migration: content sources, file formats, content types, etc.
  • Template review: review of legacy templates, considering the object model changes to the 8.5+ versions
  • Search: configuration of new search offerings and the Ektron Search API
  • eSync: for networks with an authoring to production sync process
  • Custom functionality: review of any custom developed functionality for use in an 8.7 migration
  • Multilingual: if applicable
  • SEO maintenance/optimization: migration plan to ensure that SEO rankings are not impacted by the migration
  • Training/documentation: training plan to introduce key stakeholders of new features & functionality

Our team of Ektron certified Solution Architects and Application Developers possess the specialized expertise to provide you with a worry free migration.
