June 28th, 2012, Boston MA – A free webinar was hosted by CNP Integrations on June 28th at 1 pm EST. This webinar covered the complexities and challenges of migrating Joomla 1.5 website to the new Joomla 2.5 platform.The webinar concluded with the announcement of a new Joomla 1.5 Lifeline Program. The End of Life for 1.5.xx version will bring an end to support for security and bug fixes for this version by Joomla Projects. That is why this program has been specifically designed to extend the lifecycle of Joomla 1.5 websites.
The Joomla 1.5 Lifeline Program will prepare Joomla users to step into the next phase of Joomla web development. In addition it also helps organizations to leverage their investment and return for maximum benefits and growth.Christopher Nielsen CEO and technology manager for CNP Integrations said "What we found is that many of our larger long term clients faced a dilemma where the cost to migrate their often complex portal systems built in Joomla 1.5 to the new J2.5 framework was simply cost prohibitive in the time frame left before Joomla 1.5 reached “end of life" in its development lifecycle. This significantly impacts their security and extension code maintenance. What that also means is that they are stuck between a rock and a hard place. The cost to migrate is not in their current fiscal budgets yet they need to secure and
protect their current investments. The Joomla 1.5 Lifeline program is designed to solve that very pain point in the marketplace,"
CNP Integrations partnership with SecureLive.net in January this year etched the path of building a highly robust and secure hosting platform. Later in May CNP contracted , the lead developer of SecureLive Software and veteran security expert to strengthen their advanced Joomla support team. CNP's high-quality extension developers and outstanding Joomla web
development service, along with SecureLive’s proactive features, foster them to fully support and provide stability through Joomla 1.5 Lifeline Program. All through this program CNP's proficient project managers and Joomla web development consultants will help clients plan and strategize for a leap into next generation of digital world.
Explaining the focus and aim behind this program Mr. Nielsen said, "We are not advocating to not upgrade your site since there are real benefits to doing so but there are situations where it just may not be feasible in the time frame available.With our new Joomla 1.5 Lifeline Program you will be able to extend use of your Joomla 1.5 site well through to the next scheduled long term release cycle, which is Joomla 3.5. We can guarantee that your site will remain secure and that you will get the best possible technical support and advice for not only maintaining your portal but planning for your future. This is truly a cost saving program that can deliver maximum financial benefits to qualified organizations."
Being part of Joomla 1.5 lifeline program will require a website to be shifted to CNP's highly secure hosting platform. It will not only be beneficial to migrate to this highly secure platform, but there are many additional support incentives from
CNP integrations for getting started. All details about Joomla 1.5 Lifeline Program and getting started with it is available
