8 Tech Questions to Ask Before You Even Think About a New Website

Presenters: stidmore-mc

It’s happened to you: You’re putting together requirements for a new website, but when it comes to your existing technology, you don’t know what you don’t know. Do your third-party software platforms integrate with each other? How much content needs to be migrated? Where does your DNS live? You need to gain a clear picture of your current technology so that you can move forward with your new website as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Based on over 20 years of experience building websites, we’ll explore the most common tech issues we see when beginning a new web project. You’ll gain valuable knowledge around processes like content migration, CMS requirements, single sign-on, and everything in between. You’ll understand what questions to ask your internal team before involving an outside agency or getting too far along in the process. We’ll walk through some real-world examples of how to evaluate what you’re working with and what tools you’ll need to meet your organizational goals.

By the end of this session, you should be able to:

  • Ask the right questions upfront to make the entire website process more efficient
  • Work with internal IT teams to get an accurate lay of the land
  • Evaluate existing tools—and craft accurate requests for work
  • Use tech to reach your goals
