Migrating and Upgrading without headaches: to and from SDL

The challenge of a doing a website migration where SDL Tridion (formerly SDL Web) is the source or target system lies in the mapping between the various pages and components. One of the characteristics of SDL Tridion is the sharp separation between content and layout.

Content in SDL is stored in individual components that can be placed on one or more pages. Pages consist of the presentation of the content in the components. In many other CMS systems, there is no clear separation between content and pages.

When syncing an old and new SDL, Tridion environment is not necessarily about complex mapping, but more about complex logic. Xillio has developed a synchronization solution specifically for SDL upgrade projects. Here, content is managed in the old version, and will automatically be transferred to the new version. This ensures that all actions that are performed on the old system (e.g. pages created, modified, posting a component) will always be transferred into the new target system.
