Website based on FatWire Content Server was outdated and needed to be migrated to Hippo in a short time frame.
Xillio developed a custom import tool to import data into Hippo using the standard JCR API. Preparatory to the actual migration content was restructured.
Successful migration to the new open source CMS with extremely fast import (only one hour) leads to user-friendly website with up-to-date information.
The Dutch Railways (Nederlandse Spoorwegen, NS) is the principal passenger railway operator in the Netherlands. NS provides rail services on the Dutch main rail network. To inform passengers the NS website needs to be modern, user-friendly and contain up-to-date information across all channels.
In this project, Xillio was asked to migrate three websites (ns.nl, ov-fiets.nl, and werkenBijNS.nl) from FatWire Content Server to the new open source CMS Hippo, a CMS that would simplify content management and offer multiple channel experiences to clients. One main goal of the project was to maintain the existing set of content schemas as much as possible to reduce the time needed to retrain the content editors and minimalize overall project time.
