Client case: www.hsb.se
When our web partner Sogeti was developing a new web site for HSB (one of Swedens largest cooperative association for housing), the old system had over thousands of sub sites stored. The content for all these had to be moved into the new Content Management System and doing this using manual cut and paste would have been extremely time consuming work. The challenge was to find a solution that required minimal work for the editors of HSB and transfer all the content during a tight schedule in time for launch.
An XML export from the previous site (based on Polopoly) was used as a source in this project. The new web site was built on EPiServer and all the differences in structure, templates and properties was specified and mapped together with HSB and Sogeti. When done, the migration had transferred more than 40.000 web pages and 18.000 images and documents over to the new site. The css and html content was automatically modified to match the formats and requirements of the new responsive templates, replacements where made in the textual content and publishing dates etc where preserved. Each sub sites local settings where automatically configured in EPiServer, data from other sources than the old web site etc was entered at the same time.
