Hippo / BloomReach CMS web migrations

Migrating a website to a new CMS can be quite a challenge. It is not just a matter of transferring HTML pages, it is about migrating relationships, links, documents, images, versions and configuring and enriching metadata as well. Whilst doing that you also need to make sure the mapping between the source and target system is done properly.

The structure of each Hippo / BloomReach environment (or any CMS for that matter) is different and has specific content types and functionality to serve specific needs or support specific processes. Xillio's Hippo / BloomReach CMS connector combines our knowledge of these systems with our migration expertise and is easily configured to deal with these challenges and differences.

Experience with migrating to Hippo / BloomReach CMS migrations
In recent years, Xillio has migrated dozens of leading public websites to or from Hippo / BloomReach, including the Dutch government, railways, and police departments. For the Dutch government project, 13 different ministry sites were migrated from nine different content management systems.

With the help of the Hippo / BloomReach (brX and brXM) connector, the Dutch government was able to migrate in phases and was even able to continuously synchronize a number of their content repositories.
