A next-generation website
for a medical marketing agency

Orchestrating a migration project on an enterprise scale required careful planning and execution. Here's how we did it: 

  • 1. Model content in Dato CMS

    The first step in the migration process was to model content in Dato CMS based on the structure of WordPress. This was done by going through WordPress's pages and different content types and re-creating them as modular content models in Dato CMS.

  • 2. Migrate content from WordPress

    After modeling the content on Dato CMS, the second step was to export all data such as pages, images, and other assets from WordPress and import them to Dato CMS Thanks to Agility's flexibility, it was easy to get WordPress content, transform it to match the new content models and import it into Dato.

  • 3. Front-end development

    Now that all data was modeled and migrated from WordPress to Dato, it was convenient to start working on the front-end software code with Next.js. Dato CMS provides an excellent architecture for creating modular, highly customizable, efficient page layouts.

  • 4. QA and publication

    The final step involved extensive quality assurance where we ensured all pages contained correct data from SEO tags to H tag ordering. After extensive QA the site was published on Vercel.
