Lullabot: Should You Upgrade from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9?

Drupal 7, our much-loved CMS that was released in 2011, is nearing the end of its life. No, that’s not hyperbole; Drupal 7 is scheduled to reach end-of-life in November 2021. Drupal 8 has been out for a few years, but at the time of this writing, Drupal core usage statistics indicate that only about 350,000 of the more than 1.1 million reporting Drupal core sites are using Drupal 8.x. Over 730,000 of those sites are still using Drupal 7.
