How we became #1 in content migration and content integration

Xillio's story

Xillio was founded in 2004 by Rikkert Engels. The years prior Rikkert worked at a large bank in the Netherlands in the knowledge mngt department and experienced first-hand the impossible task achieving that. Xillio was founded with the following three core beliefs:

  • Break down silo’s
  • Free content
  • Provide additional value to content

In our first years, we were mainly doing web content migrations. Later we added enterprise content migrations to our offering. In 2010 we started with development of Xillio software, initially just for migrations.

In 2016 we started with the development of our Core integration technology, the Xillio API. Main promise of the API is that it easily frees the content from it’s repositories so it can be used for value creation activities. Second prominent feature is that it unifies the content models to allow interoperability within the enterprises, essential to break down silo’s!

In 2017, we were awarded Cool Vendor Content Services by Gartner for the content migration and integration platform. We think we are the best content migration and integration company in the world. This is hard to proof as there is no official contest. However, the best proof in our view is the sheer number of clients that we serve in every part of the world. They usually find us after months or even years trying to fix a migration with 1 or 2 local providers. (No hard feelings here, we understand it is too tempting to believe they can solve it) We get the urgent call to fix it in 2 or 3 months and till today, 15 years after start, we have always delivered. And till today we still love these challenges.

Late 2018, we started building our first end user application (Localization Hub) on top of the Xillio API to leverage the unique interoperability possibilities. We picked the localization industry as our aim is not to just break down silo’s at enterprises, but also between nations. Solving the language barrier is a very important first step!
