Unlock new features and stay supported

Upgrade assessment

Software is continuously evolving and Sitecore is no different, but as new versions are created, the support available for older versions starts to fade away. To date, Sitecore has released a minor update every 3-6 months and a new major version every 2-3 years.

New releases of Sitecore deliver features, bug fixes and security updates, all of which are essential to the stability of enterprise platforms. 

The Kin + Carta upgrade assessment goes into real depth about the benefits and process you need to take to be on the latest, fastest and most secure version of Sitecore available. 

Our team of Sitecore specialists will work with you and your teams to review your existing implementation and identify the best approach to upgrading your Sitecore instance. 

Typical steps

  • Platform review
  • Review data set/migration effort
  • Identify breaking changes
  • Infrastructure review
  • Integrations review
  • Plan upgrade

The Kin + Carta upgrade assessment is a pragmatic look at the best way to reach the latest version of Sitecore. By working out if it's better to upgrade the existing instance or to plan a migration into a fresh install, we find the most cost effective and least risk route.

The Kin + Carta upgrade assessment can usually be delivered within two weeks. This allows time to get the access required and to produce a report of the findings and present the recommended approach. 

The deliverables

The upgrade assessment delivers a review of the platform, providing insights into potential areas of risk along with suggestions for improvement or items requiring remedial action.

Finally, it provides a detailed plan and supporting timeline estimates for the successful upgrade of your platform.
