If you’re still using an older version of Sitecore like 6.x, 7.x, 8.x or 9.x you should consider a Sitecore upgrade.
Technology moves fast and content management systems are no exception. A Sitecore upgrade will deliver improved development, marketing and editing capabilities.
Sitecore has changed considerably over the years. It has upgraded. The Sitecore Experience Platform (XP) and the eventual roll-out of the Composable DXP have adapted to the changing internet landscape and to the evolving customer demands. Sitecore has evolved into a powerful Digital Experience Platform that's perfectly aligned with today's digital demands of businesses and customers.
An upgrade will invigorate your Sitecore website. It will deliver powerful features your existing system doesn't have, like machine learning, advanced analytics and improved personalisation capabilities. It will align your business with today's demands by delivering better digital experiences to your customers.
Upgrading Sitecore will also allow your marketing team to get content to market a lot quicker - saving time and money.
It’s also important to consider that legacy versions like 6.x, 7.x, 8.x and 9.x no longer have mainstream support. This means should anything go wrong, your website isn't supported by Sitecore. These older versions also limit the ability to integrate with third party technologies.
