Next-gen web, enterprise scale
Our team worked closely with UJET to migrate their WordPress site to Jamstack, 1:1. Orchestrating a migration project on an enterprise scale required careful planning and execution. Here's how we did it:
1. Model content in Agility CMS
The first step in the migration process was to model content in Agility CMS based on the structure on WordPress. This was done by going through the pages and different content types on WordPress and re-creating them as modular content models in Agility CMS.
2. Migrate content from WordPress
After modelling the content on Agility CMS, the second step was to export all data such as pages, images and other assets from WordPress and import them to Agility. Thanks to Agility's flexibility it was easy to get WordPress' content, transform it to match the new content models and import it in Agility.
3. Front-end development
Now that all data was modelled and migrated from WordPress to Agility it was convenient to start working on the front-end software code with Next.js. Agility provides excellent architecture for creating modular, highly customizable and efficient page layouts.
4. QA and publication
The final step involved extensive quality assurance where we ensured all pages contain correct data from SEO tags to H tag ordering. After extensive QA the site was published on Vercel.
The tech stack:
