Step 1: Identify the Data Source

The first step we take toward completing your data migration is identifying your data source. Even if you have a super complex database schema, WebDevStudios can work it out.

Step 2: Build Data Mapping Guide

After we identify your data source(s) and have an understanding of how your data is structured, our next step is building a data mapping guide. This guide will help you see what goes where before we move it!

Step 3: Sit Back & Relax

By approaching data migration with a WebDevStudios migration script tailored specifically to your needs, we streamline the process for migrating your data into WordPress. Once the migration script is finalized, we perform a mock migration that allows you to see everything start to come together. A quality assurance phase begins shortly after so all parties can verify that all of the data was imported successfully.
