Migrate website content from and to EPiServer

Whether you decide to migrate away or move to EPiServer CMS or their cloud solutions, we are able to help you prepare your digital content for use in your new environment.

No matter from which e-commerce or CMS you are moving from, we are able to help you determine which content needs to be selected for importing to an EPiServer solution. Based on your vision of how your future implementation should look like, we can help you gather existing content, analyze it, make transformations to it (for example metadata enrichment) and specify selection criteria to determine what content is eligible for migration to your new platform.

Xillio's website migration tool and approach are ideal for large volumes of content; for instance, websites with multiple languages and thousands of webpages. We use the EPiServer RESTful API to export and import content, blocks, pages, files, and media between EPiServer.

Pre-built connector to EPiServer for integration

Do you want to integrate EPiServer content with other applications in your business process, for instance in emails, commerce, support sites, social channels, maybe to translate content from EPiServer in a translation system, or to sync media stored in EPiServer with other external sources (e.g. DAM)?

Xillio offers a EPiServer API for content integration which provides unified access to content (blocks, pages, media and files) stored in EPiServer. Using the Xillio API to integrate EPiServer with other digital experience applications has the following advantages:

  • One API and one content model: use only one API and content model to access content stored in EPiServer, but also in other systems. This makes your integrations considerably easier and cheaper.
  • Use Xillio's big list of other connectors to pull content from any system into your business application.

Our API supports EPiServer10 and needs an extension on the EPiServer server. Learn more about our API for EPiServer integration in our API documentation.
