The sunsetting of Drupal7 next year means teams have an opportunity to reevaluate if Drupal continues to meet their needs.
The migration from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9 is a labor-intensive one, requiring extensive reworking of site architecture and reworking the deprecated modules to either find a similar solution or finding a difficult workaround to maintain now unsupported modules.
After the overhaul, team members will require new onboarding, and workflows, to understand how the upgraded system will allow them to build something similar to what they were working with before the upgrade. At the end of the day, teams are left with a web-first content management system that limits their ability to be agile towards the modern tech stacks that lets them reach new users where they are.
