Migration of Content & Assets from other CMS to AEM as cloud service

Avatar

Level 1

We're currently engaged with a client to transfer their current content and assets from various sources to AEM as a cloud service.

Consequently, we're seeking to devise a migration strategy. Content may originate from platforms like WordPress, while assets are sourced from platforms such as Amazon S3 and other DAM solutions/products. 

Could you assist us in outlining the migration process for both content and assets into AEM as a cloud service?

If you have to migrate content from different sources - first you have to start content analysis and structure of the different sources.

In a high-level

Content Migration:

  • Content Analysis : Analyze the existing content in the source system (like WordPress). Identify the content types, their structure, and relationships.
  • Content Model Design:Design the content model in AEM. This includes creating templates, components
  • Content Extraction / Transformation : Extract the content from the source system in a format that can be imported into AEM and transform to AEM format
  • Content Import : Import the transformed content into AEM

 

Same for Assets also - Analyze the existing asset data.

 

To upload assets from a third-party application to Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) author, you can use AEM's HTTP API. This API allows you to perform CRUD operations on AEM assets using HTTP requests.

Hi @rajatc 
As per documentation you can migrate content to AEMaaCS via

If you are not migrating from AEM previous versions, then for content (as in webpages) you would have to go through the process of creating pages from scratch in AEM( via templates and components)

For Assets , above sources should be ok.

Also while migrating to AEMaaCS you would need to setup a new project on the Adobe Cloud Manager , you can follow Cloud Acceleration Manager for the same.

Hi @pulkitvashisth 

 

Thank you for responding. However, in our situation, we're transitioning from platforms such as WordPress or Amazon S3, which are not AEM. Consequently, we won't be able to utilize the content transfer tool in this scenario.
