Migrate your website for efficient content management.
Technology is advancing all the time. It is recommended that you update your CMS in order to take advantage of automation, load speeds and stability to improve the daily productivity for your web administrators. Organisations who do not regularly maintain and update their CMS risk a far more costly fee for a major site update. If your CMS becomes too out of date, it is likely that functionality will need to be completely rebuilt.
Update your website to boost online security.
CMS companies are constantly releasing bug fixes and updates for their software, some more than others. A major area they all update is security. As the update is released, it is also already overdue, a CMS that hasn’t been updated in months or years is severely exposed. Attacks from hackers and cyber terrorists have become increasingly regular in the digital arena, and so has the penalties should you lose confidential data. If your website is breached, brand credibility will also be damaged. It is recommended that you regularly update your website to keep your data safe or put a plan in place to migrate your website away from a poor performing CMS.
