Upgrading to a new website is no simple task. New design, new content structure, new Sitecore, new solution architecture and what not. Everything is regenerated except a large segment of the content.

Clients do not want to fall behind with the everyday increasing customer’s demand. Thus, to be on the cutting edge they opt for the latest version of sitecore instance that let businesses to carry out marketing automation with their data, new experience cloud and several other advancements.
Incremental upgrade using Update Packages - In this approach Sitecore provides Upgrade guide, Release notes, Update Packages to install, Db scripts to execute, Configuration files to merge/overwrite and some additional setting to be done based on the version you are upgrading to. In the incremental approach you start from you current Sitecore version and perform manual upgrades to every major version released, all the way to your targeted version.
Migrating content to a clean Sitecore instance (using the latest version) - In this approach, you take a fresh Sitecore instance of the latest version, package all your custom content items (and files) from your old instance and install them into the new instance. This method is generally faster than installing incremental update packages (especially when upgrading from <8.1).
Using the Express Migration Tool - Upgrading from 6.6 or 7.2 to the latest version involves a large number of incremental updates which makes them very time consuming and complex. Therefore, Sitecore has introduced the Express Migration Tool to help the users by making this a seamless process. This tool is Windows Executable that can be run locally. The tool migrates entities from your old instance to a new, clean instance of the latest version. The Express Migration Tool supports 6.6 & 7.2 revisions as your source (old) version and supports 8.2 update-1 as your chosen (new) version. The tool can also migrate WFFM from 2.4 to 8.2 update-1.
