Your Drupal 7 site is working great, and it is powering important parts of your infrastructure. You need it to work safely, securely, and with a minimum of staff - especially now! myDropWizard has your back.

There are a number of sad and scary issues facing all of us, but working together we can solve any problem. myDropWizard would like to be a piece of the puzzle in helping your organization navigate the uncertainty of 2020 and beyond.

The world has changed.

All plans everyone had at the beginning of 2020 have been, in some way, altered. There's no escaping that. Drupal 9 was released this year. That means many Drupal users had intentions of upgrading their Drupal 7 sites to Drupal 9. While the official "end-of-life" of Drupal has been extended to help provide a little stability in the Drupal world - the rest of the world is full of uncertainty.

I'm cautiously optimistic about the next few years for our clients. There are a number of challenges, and if any of them effect your organization, I hope you contact us! I hear about different issues every day, and I've tried to distill them down into a few simple categories of issues with which we'd clearly be able to assist.

Upgrade Plans Cancelled

Your organization had a plan or was developing a plan to upgrade to Drupal 9. Those plans are cancelled. In most cases, this is because other critical parts of your organization need attention!

We can help fill in whatever gaps you may have in keeping your Drupal 7 website safe and secure. You can take care of the parts of your job that only you can do.

Staff Decreases

Many organizations, have permanently or temporarily lost some of their technical staff. Whether these are safety related or budget related, the fact remains that upgrade and support plans are in disarray. Any organization that had to face both maintaining their Drupal 7 website and doing a massive upgrade may now have to choose one or the other.

You may not have to choose one or the other with our help. We can help maintain your legacy site - including many support issues - while your leaner team can focus in on your future needs more acutely.

Work-At-Home Expansion

So may organizations have exploded their work-at-home teams to a point where many other IT needs have had to get put on the backburner. You know your critical infrastructure and organization specifics, so you have no choice but to help many of your colleagues to navigate those issues.

Wouldn't it be great if you could off-load your Drupal site to myDropWizard to keep it safe while you take care of the immediate needs?

Vendor Disappeared

Thousands of small businesses have been forced to close up. If one of these businesses was assisting you with support or your massive upgrade plans, you may now be left with the prospect of largely starting over!

myDropWizard can help keep your current Drupal site running in top fashion while you get things planned for any eventual upgrade.

Drupal 7 Isn't Going Anywhere.

I talked a lot of sad and scary situations, but the good news is that you are running awesome software. Drupal 7 is battled-tested and super-flexible. It's also going to be supported for years to come - myDropWizard is planning on supoprting Drupal 7 for many years after the official end-of-life.
