A while back I submitted a Birds of a Feather session on CMS to WCM migration/upgrade. Thanks to all who voted, but it didn’t get enough of a response to warrant it’s own BOF session.
However, this session was rescheduled as a Theater Presentation in the Office Technical Learning Center (TLC) area and I’ll co-host it with
MCS’ Mitch Prince Microsoft's Arpan Shah who’s co-presenting the :
TLC33-OFC329 Migrating your Content Management Server 2002 sites to Web Content Management in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007Web Content Management (WCM) in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is a significant upgrade from Content Management Server 2002 (CMS). The most significant change is the change to using Windows SharePoint Services as the underlying platform for WCM. The tradeoff: no backward compatibility with the CMS Publishing API (PAPI)! No fear, in this BoF session we'll discuss best practices for current CMS site development, and how to get your CMS site ready for the move to WCM, and what post migration issues you'll have to tackle. Come share your questions and ideas with others to best prepare you and your team with the migration tasks ahead of you.
Thursday, June 15 3:00p –
3:20p 3:40p – Office TLC Theater A/V
This session will follow Arpan Shah
and Mitch’s OFC329 – Migrating your CMS 2002 Web Sites to MOSS 2007 session at 1p earlier that day.
I’ll be ready to have a moderated discussion, but if you have questions, I’m open to making it more of a dialog.
[Update 5/24/2006] The Theatre talk was just extended do a double session! The only downside is the theater we’re using for the first portion was booked immediately afterwards, so we’ll move to a chalk talk area. The only difference is we won’t have plasma displays… so follow the session if you have more to discuss![Update 5/27/2006] Unfortunately Mitch won’t be on hand, but Arpan was nice enough to take his place.[Update 6/7/2006] The session now has been assigned a number/code (TLC33–OFC329) and is listed in ComNet.
