I have a 100 pages site written in 15 languages to replicate from one CMS (now discredited with the customer) over to SiteCore - which on the face of it offers many great features. The UX is to remain unchanged.
A respected offshore vendor has quoted 4000 hours to analyse, architect, develop and deploy. They have spent several days browsing the site.
A single local consultant has offered to execute a "1:1 replication", which will not include any attempt to analyse the site or design the optimum data set up. He anticpates that the task will take 100 hours. Whilst he has not spent much time reviewing the site, but has completed similar projects.
Both offers exclude content migration.
Both vendors were recommended by SiteCore, both have considerable depth of experience. I'm struggling to account for the vast discrepancy.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
