Migrating to a new setup
Using the Enterspeed migrator extension
Migrating content and data from an old setup to a new one can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive task. Depending on the amount of content and customisations involved, the process can take anywhere from a few hours to several thousand hours of manual labour.
Migrations can be especially challenging if you have a large number of pages or products to transfer, as the process can become quite tedious and time-consuming.
Using the Enterspeed migrator extension can significantly streamline the process of transferring content and data from an old setup to a new one.
Instead of manually transferring each piece of content or data individually, you can simply push it to Enterspeed and use the migrator extension to transfer it to your new setup.
This can save you many hours of work and allow you to complete the migration process much faster.
Additionally, using Enterspeed to migrate content and data can be done while you are building your new setup, which means that you don't have to put your marketing efforts on hold or go into production freeze.
This can help you get your new setup up and running as quickly as possible, without sacrificing the quality or completeness of your content.
We have developed a migrator for Umbraco and Sitecore. The migrator allows you to transfer content from an older version of Umbraco, such as Umbraco 7, to a newer version, such as Umbraco 10.
What is even more impressive, is that you can migrate between different CMSs. You can, for instance, migrate your Sitecore setup to a new Umbraco setup.

- Customization: They often provide options for selecting and transferring specific content types or pages, as well as for preserving customisations such as templates and styles. This can help you tailor the migration process to your specific needs and requirements.
- Compatibility: They can help ensure compatibility between the old and new CMS setups, as they can handle the transfer of content and customisations in a way that is compatible with the new setup.
Overall, using a migrator like the Enterspeed migration extension can make the process of migrating from one CMS to another faster, easier, and more efficient. It can also help ensure that the migration is successful and that your content and customisations are transferred accurately and completely.
