Or, you have mountains of data to clean and migrate, which you haven’t gotten to or, even worse, doesn’t import well once you do. In many cases, these scenarios emerge when migration planning is only discussed late in the project. There are practical and efficient ways to mitigate the tremendous risk that content and data migration pose for a website or CRM project.
