Metalogix (news, 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
- Movable Type
- 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.
Metalogix Migration Manager for Blogs
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.
