All things must pass... After four and a half years with Acquia, the time is ripe for me to return to the consulting world. I've resurrected a pre-Drupal d.b.a., Virtuoso Performance, and will be doing Drupal migration consulting under that moniker going forward. I appreciate my time at Acquia - I've learned a lot, and worked with some great people - but I miss the freedom and flexibility of consulting.
Business modelsGenerally, in the past I've been involved in migration projects from end-to-end:
- Analyzing source data, and working with site-builders and stakeholders to work out what legacy data maps to what Drupal entities.
- Architecting the migration implementation - figuring out an optimal class hierarchy, constructing the initial implementation, etc.
- The long tail - filling in the details (each field mapping for each type of content being migrated) and responding to the inevitable changes to the Drupal architecture during the course of a project.
- Running the final migration for site launch.
