Migrate to from Adobe Experience Manager

Efficient migration from/to Adobe Experience Manager (AEM)

 A web content migration is a complex process, whether it involves a migration between Adobe Experience Manager, formerly known as Adobe CQ, or any other CMS system. Transferring a web page or the HTML is just the tip of the iceberg. Often, content migration requires a structure adjustment, content improvement, or metadata enrichment. The real complexity is located underwater: the conversion of the structures, content types, versions, values, value lists, and reconstructing relationships, links to other pages, files, and images.

During content migration, CMS data models are often constructed differently from one another; at times, several content types can be consolidated or eliminated altogether. Each CMS has its own implementation of pages or component-based content types.

It is essential for the business input and automated transformation to go hand in hand when migrating content to new environment. To carry out this process in a controlled and manageable way, a combination of the right software and people are needed.
