Upgrading Sitecore is a daunting process. There are many things that can wrong, and multiple ways to approach it. Choosing the right approach takes expertise.
Whether its performance issues, or new functionality, or moving to the cloud– no matter what your motivation is for upgrading to the latest version of Sitecore– we're here to find you the most cost effective upgrade path, and make it an easy, seamless process.
We consider factors such as cost, risk, and efficiency. Let our team of Sitecore Support Engineers develop a plan and execute your upgrade flawlessly.
Our Sitecore Upgrade process starts with thorough analysis and planning. We’ll identify modules that can’t be upgraded and any code that needs a rewrite. Engagency works to ensure that you have zero downtime and the minimum time needed for a code and content freeze - getting your site up and running and your content editors updating the site is our top priority.
Before making any modifications to the codebase, we create test cases covering all major functionality and pages on your site to ensure that when the upgrade is completed, everything continues to work flawlessly.
Once the test plan is in place, we start locally, upgrading a development version of the site, doing a round of thorough QA there to find and fix any issues caused by the upgrade. Once the local version has passed QA, we upgrade your servers from the lowest environment (usually Dev or QA) up to production. For each server, we pull the latest backup from your database, ensure any code changes are merged in, and update the environment. Before moving on, we do thorough testing in each environment.
Then, it’s up to you and your team to enjoy the faster performance, new functionality, and unmatched personalization capabilities of an expertly-upgraded Sitecore solution.
