Your Partner for Drupal 9 Migration
Drupal 7 users—the time to migrate to Drupal 9 is now.
Birds do it every year, but Drupal 7 (D7) users must migrate to Drupal 9 (D9) in 2022 or face a rash of potentially unpleasant consequences, including the security breaches and eroded functionality that accompany obsolete and unsupported code. It’s important to note that a Drupal 8 (D8) upgrade is no longer an option for D7 users, because the D8 end of life (EOL) has already come and gone (November 2021).
That happened because moving from D8 to D9 was an easier task to accomplish, given the similarities between their code bases. Developers still worked to accomplish upgrades, but the process was a much lighter lift than the full migration required to move from D7 to D9, or any new release thereafter.
Isovera is your partner for D9 readiness
Isovera can help you assess your site for D9 readiness by conducting a technical audit that includes:
- Evaluation of back-end site technology
- Review of all modules and functions
- Assessment of compliance with ADA access standards
We’ll also provide a roadmap that reflects the milestones and timeline we recommend as the optimal approach for site migration—and this roadmap will account for future development needs.

What makes this D7 to D9 migration complex?
The term is called “migrating” because it implies the significant effort required to move from one platform to another, in this case from D7 to D9. While both are in the Drupal family, D9 reflects a completely new generation of coding standards that essentially render it a “new” platform when compared to D7. As a result, D7 sites now must be carefully evaluated for code, content, and configuration before they can be fully reimagined, redesigned, and rewritten in D9. It’s a labor-intensive project that offers both challenges and opportunities but definitely demands a full technology audit as the launching point for site managers seeking digital transformation. The good news? Isovera, with unrivaled depth of Drupal experience, can help.
Bridging technology and marketing
Migrating from D7 to D9 not only establishes a more stable and secure technical environment, but creates the perfect opportunity for organizations to invest in a brand refresh. All code must essentially be rewritten when moving from D7 to D9, so why not redesign now instead of rewriting code twice? New messaging and a new look and feel may result in reinvigorated engagement with site users and business stakeholders, as well as act as a rallying cry within the firm.

Don’t delay, Schedule your site audit!
While it may be tempting to put off addressing D7 to D9 site migration, don’t. End of life means no new security patches and no new modules to support UX/UI, a precarious business position that leaves sites wide open and vulnerable to hacking, degraded user experiences, and a bottoming out in Google rankings.
Keep your business and your digital identity as stable and secure as possible by migrating from D7 to D9.
