Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important actions any organization can take. It's like having a car's oil changed every 3000 miles, or getting regular tune-ups for preventative maintenance on your vehicle.
Your website CMS needs the same care to provide you with its best performance.
Vanguard recommends upgrading your platform roughly every 18 months to ensure you are using the latest and greatest version of the software. Upgrade Process
The upgrade process is not complicated for your organization. It happens in the background on a separate environment so that you and your users do not experience any interruptions.
Upgrades take 3-4 weeks to complete, and in most cases, can be completed at a faster pace.
We ask clients to participate in testing of the upgrade (usually takes just a couple of hours), and we also place you on a content freeze for a period of 5 days prior to the launch of the upgrade. Are you ready for an upgrade?
Sitefinity released version 11 in May of 2018, so if you are running Sitefinity 8.0 or lower you are 3 or more version behind - which means you should consider upgrading in 2019.
To find your version of Sitefinity, log in to the back-end of the system and go to Administration > Version and Licensing. Look at the line called Product Version, and this will tell you what you are currently running.
To learn more about the most recent version of Sitefinity, or to inquire about the upgrade process, just email email@example.com
