Drupal's advantages for running enterprise websites are well established by such companies as FedEx and The Economist, as well as The White House. But many who would like to use it hesitate because they fear loss of assets now managed by their current site's platform, or expect the procedure to transfer those assets to be prohibitively difficult. This paper examines scenarios for migrating from other content-management systems (CMS) such as Vignette, Jive, FatWire, ColdFusion, and Joomla. It evaluates reasons for migration, describes migration methods and tools, and suggests best practices.
