CMS Migration Materials are available and TechEd

Microsoft office Sharepoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is now in Beta. Customers of Microsoft Content Management Server 2002 (CMS 2002) maybe wondering where CMS is. The technology in CMS has been integrated into MOSS in the Web Publishing Features.

We have written several whitepapers that discuss CMS migration to MOSS. The start out very high level and end with an API comparision between CMS and MOSS for common tasks performed in PAPI.

In addition to these papers, we have also created a tool called the "CMS Assessment Tool". This tool will create an inventory of every place in your application code where you are calling PAPI. In additon to anlayzing your code, it will collect statistics from the repository, and run a pre-migration analyzer against the content to let you know of any potential content migration issues.

I placed links to all of these papers and the tool in the "CMS Migration" section on this blog.

Today, is the first keynote for TechEd. I will be at the conference. I will be leading a Birds of a Feather session on Thurday afternoon with Andrew Connell (MVP) on CMS Migration and you will find me at Arpan's CMS Migration talk too.
