As part of any change in DXP or CMS platforms, many businesses face the question about what to do with their old platform and the content it contains.
There are a couple of options available and finding the right one for your business can be critical.
- Do nothing
- Keep the platform online
- Archive content to an offline format
The cheapest option is of course, do nothing. This is fine if you no longer need the content or have migrated everything you want over to your new platform.
Keep the platform online
Keeping the platform online or in a stand-by state will often require budget. If the current platform is hosted in a SaaS or PaaS environments these can require continuous costs during the archive period.
If your Sitecore licence is a perpetual one, you will also need to either continue paying the annual support and maintenance costs, or accept an unsupported platform.
Archive content to an offline format
This is where Kin + Carta can help. Our platform archival process is the best of both worlds, by completely shutting down the infrastructure requirement and still providing access to the content, on-going costs are removed and audit trails maintained.
