For the project that I am working on(using Orchard CMS) , I am creating an "View your contact information/Update your contact information"  module. I need to make this a widget . The module queries external database to access the information to display and update. I am not storing any of this data into the Orchard SQL database, therefore I haven't created any Filters/Drivers. Based on the documentation available at Orchard project for creating a widget, I created  the Migrations.cs file and added the UpdateFrom1() method. 

Is there anything else I need to do to make this into widget?

A widget is just a content type with the Widget part and the widget stereotype.
