Streamline your AEM Migration with the CMSBridge Accelerator

Jul 06, 2015

By Hemanth Mudigolam

So, you’ve decided to make the move to Adobe Experience Manager. Who could blame you? With new feature packs, enhanced scalability and other powerful updates, it’s one of the today’s more robust enterprise content management systems.

But many content professionals find the prospect of migrating hundreds or thousands of pages almost too daunting to consider. They worry about how much time it might take and whether accuracy will be an issue, especially at high page volumes.

It’s for this group that TechAspect created the CMSBridge.

A TechAspect FastForward™ Accelerator

CMSBridge is one of many Fast Forward Accelerators, proprietary, pre-coded modules designed to reduce the time and costs associated with website deployment. It simplifies CMS migrations by enabling users to easily collect, organize and move assets over quickly and accurately, without the fear of errors or misfiling information.

With maximum ease and efficiency, CMSBridge helps users create and store mapping rules, download content and migrate data to an Adobe CQ implementation. As you know, Adobe CQ has been integrated into the AEM solution, and both are now part of Adobe Marketing Cloud.

Here are some CMSBridge screen shots that illustrate a simple migration.
