Drupal stores the content in a database. So you can definitely write a migration script to map the database content to a respective content in AEM but nothing available OOB. 

As @opkar mentioned, it depends on how much of data you need to reuse or recreate from the content perspective. however, you need to develop the templates and components required in AEM before you map the content with the respective components.

Hi Shubhankar,

Please see this previous thread [1]

Other articles [2],[3],[4]

You need to decide your how much of your current content you want to migrate, then map old to new. You then need to extract the content from Drupal and transform it into a format that can be imported into AEM.

In AEM you need to decide your information architecture, create your templates, pages and components, set up your ACL's. Then you can think of importing your content. It's not a simple process and needs careful planning and execution. It can often be a large project on it's own.

Opkar
