Have a Blog You Want to Migrate to SharePoint?

Metalogix (site) is at it again, offering another way to migrate your content into another CMS. This time it's for those of you who have a blog but are being lulled by the sweet song of SharePoint 2010.

Have Blog? Will Migrate

So here's the deal, Microsoft is marketing SharePoint 2010 as a business collaboration platform. And that means it supports collaboration and content management (enterprise content management and web content management).

So it's the perfect platform for you bloggers who want more functionality than your current blogging software offers. At least that's what Metalogix believes. Which is why they have developed a migration tool — the Metalogix Migration Manager for Blogs — that will help you migrate your blog into SharePoint 2010.

What Blogging Software is Supported?

Here's the list:

  • Google Blogger
  • Wordpress
  • Movable Type
  • Telligent
  • Any blog system that supports either the Metaweblog standard or RSS

What Content is Migrated?

What components of your blog can you migrate? You can migrate all your posts, comments and categories.

Like other Metalogix Migration Managers, batch migration and remote administration of the migration are also supported.

The migration manager also supports the migration of blogs from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010. In this case all version history and user permissions are supported as well.

Time to Migrate Along?

So if you are tired of your current blogging software or just want more functionality — like that found in SharePoint 2010, take a closer look.

And if you are a Microsoft MVP, you can get a free version of the Migration Manager for Blogs.

Oh, and if you aren't ready to go to SharePoint 2010, the migration manager will migrate your blogs to SharePoint 2007.

AvePoint Helps Migrate From SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010

You are currently using SharePoint 2007 and you are chomping at the bit to move to SharePoint 2010 (which still isn't here yet, so calm down). Wondering how you can get all your information easily into the new version? AvePoint (site) has an option for you.

Getting your SharePoint content into SharePoint

The DocAve Migrator can help you migrate your content from both SharePoint 2003 and SharePoint 2007 into SharePoint 2010. Note that this also includes WSS2.0 and WSS3.0.

AvePoint, as part of the Microsoft Office TAP (Technology Adoption Program) program, has had inside knowledge of the inner workings of the upcoming version of SharePoint. They have designed their migration solution to go beyond the basic out of the box migration offering that Microsoft offers to move from 2007 to 2010.

The out of the box offering involves a bulk upgrade at the farm or database level. AvePoint extends this in the following way:

  • Migrate and map content, metadata, customizations and configurations from 2007 to SharePoint 2010 and reorganize, remap or move to new folders once migrated.
  • Migrate a single instance or content item.
  • Using the Pre-Migration Scanner, you can get notified of elements that need to be mapped for a successful migration.

Migrate Content from Anywhere

In addition, you can also migrate from 2003 — something Microsoft doesn't offer — and of, course, a number of other content management systems including Oracle/Stellent,Lotus Notes, Documentum eRoom, File Systems, Exchange Public Folders, Open Text LiveLink and Vignette.

Of course, AvePoint isn't your only SharePoint migration option. You can also check out the MetaVis Migrator and Metalogix.
