The beginning of the end
We will begin to attempt to write this in the way that everyone will understand...but March 26th, 2021 is pretty much the start of the zombie apocalypse for all Adobe Business Catalyst users. Adobe will put a halt to their hosting of existing sites on BC (Business Catalyst), leaving many people in scrambles to download all of their data and begin migration well before 2021. We've been Adobe Business Catalyst Partners for the last 8 years, and while we were saddened by Adobe's BC End-of-Life announcement, as it was our preferred hosting solution, it has also given our agency a chance to look at more, modern, progressive Content Management Systems. So, while this is the beginning of the end for Adobe BC, it is the start of something amazing for our agency and our clients! There are options out there and we are here to help.
Migrating to CMS
Not to worry...we have a great deal of experience with Adobe Business Catalyst and have been moving sites off of Adobe BC quite successfully. As stressful as it is to completely migrate every site built on BC, we have been working hard, and have utilized a variety of different web hosting platforms to suit any custom requirement or budget. From start-up to large-scale, custom, API-base enterprise solutions, we have a system that works for you and your business. All of our websites are built using the latest and semantic web best practices and all of our preferred hosting solutions have a variety of e-commerce capabilities to suit any budget.
At the moment, we are working with 5 different Content Management Systems (CMS) which are platforms that facilitate creating, editing, organizing and publishing content. While we understand that there are other CMS Platforms out there, we take great care in making sure that we only work with the best CMS Platforms. Below is a list of our preferred CMS platforms that we now work with.
- NordicCMS - perfect for those that want super fast, easy, and affordable desktop and mobile editing capabilities.
- AlpineCMS - perfect wanting to custom build, but also future-proof their website.
- Shopify - an e-commerce platform, sell in multiple places, including web, mobile, social media, and more.
- Site Glide - a Powerful Scalable Web CMS Platform for managing your business.
- Word Press - open source software you can use to create a beautiful responsive website, blog, or app.
Some projects we've worked on with a few of our new, preferred CMS's.
