Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) to WordPress Migration Services
Adobe Experience Manager holds substantial capabilities, yet it may constrain enterprises seeking flexibility, independent content management, and cost efficiency. WordPress, in contrast, offers simple publishing processes and independence.
Partnering with Multidots, you can transition seamlessly to explore the full potential of your website, free from migration complexities.
Migrating a large website is a daunting task, with plenty of opportunity for error. Here at Multidots we are experts in migrating to WordPress. We have migrated over 100 sites, without issue. If you are looking to move, but are worried about the process, get in touch to see how we can help you.
Reasons to Migrate from AEM to WordPress
Despite being an Adobe product and something many professionals consider a premium service, AEM still comes with its own set of challenges.
How WordPress Excels Over Adobe Experience Manager
Are you still on the fence about moving to WordPress?
WordPress offers a cost-efficient CMS solution where the faster, less expensive development and ease of use and maintenance lead to a reduction in the total cost of ownership over time (The Total Economic Impact™Of WordPress VIP, 2021). Additionally, the platform’s ability to integrate additional plugins and applications as needed further enhances its value, striking a balance between affordability and comprehensive digital functionality.
Easy to Learn
The platform provides an intuitive interface, simplifying creating and managing content, even for users with limited technical skills. This ease of use extends to features like adding images, files, text, links, and embedding media, as well as the ability to create unlimited pages, blog posts, and products if you’re an eCommerce store.
Large and Active Community
WordPress enjoys a significant user community filled with developers, designers, accessibility experts, polyglots, and meetup organizers who actively contribute to its development and never-ending evolution. This level of community demonstrates the benefits of using an open-source system and how important WordPress is to its users.
Extensive Customization Options
WordPress allows enterprises to tailor every aspect of their website, ensuring a unique digital presence aligned with their brand identity and operational needs. Leveraging the expertise of professional agencies, businesses can integrate specific functionalities and workflows, maximizing the platform’s flexibility. This approach results in a powerful, personalized online platform that effectively supports and enhances their business objectives.

Multidots’ Easy CMS Migration in 5 Steps
We’ve created a process that is 100% transparent and caters to your specific business needs.
You’ll have a meeting with our CMS migration team to assert the goals and objectives of changing your website’s platform from AEM to WordPress. We’ll discuss possible challenges and how we plan to meet them. This first meeting will set the foundation for a transparent and efficient migration process.
Once we are aware of your needs and objectives, it’s time to create a detailed plan that includes all the important factors, such as existing content and website features, as well as your budget and approximate timeline.
We draft an action plan that is sent for your approval, after which we begin the process by doing a full data backup. Then, we can begin migrating your website from Adobe Experience Manager to WordPress.
At every step of the migration, we perform meticulous testing to make sure that every piece of content is accurately transferred and that the new WordPress website matches your expectations.
The conclusion of our AEM to WordPress migration is only the beginning of our relationship with your business. After everything is completed, we remain at your disposal to maintain your new WordPress website, making sure that it functions properly and meets all the required performance benchmarks.
If you’re struggling with the expenses related to AEM and want more autonomy in the website management process, it’s time to think about moving to WordPress. Once you’ve made that decision and you’re getting closer to your license renewal date, call us, and we’ll make sure to migrate your website before that.
Migrating a website holds many challenges, including data loss, impact on search engine rankings, compatibility issues, and many more. However, with Multidots, you don’t have to worry about any of these issues, as we have years of experience working with complex enterprise-grade solutions for migrations and digital transformations.

Not a single piece of information gets lost when you book our AEM to WordPress website migration service. We pay special attention and spend a lot of time ensuring that all your data is securely transferred to its new host.
We’ll need a whole page just to list them, but in short, WordPress is currently the most used CMS, so almost every tool you’ll need can be integrated into it. Some examples include Gravity Forms, Notion, Salesforce, Airtable, Sendinblue, MailChimp, Twilio, and many, many more.
When it comes to customization, WordPress is definitely in the lead. This flexibility in customization not only allows for a website that truly resonates with the company’s vision but also facilitates the integration of specific functionalities and workflows.
For eCommerce businesses of all sizes, WordPress, combined with its WooCommerce platform, is often a more suitable choice. It’s cost-effective, user-friendly, and offers ample flexibility for customization. WordPress is ideal for businesses looking for an easy-to-manage, scalable eCommerce solution without a significant investment. It’s used by Sony Music, Disney Books, Tonal, and Mercedes-Benz.
With WordPress, the hosting and technical aspects are managed by the service provider. Users can create and manage their WordPress site directly on the web without needing to install software on their own servers.
Multidots gives you a zero-downtime guarantee so that your website is up and running even during the migration. Once the transfer is completed, your AEM website will be replaced by the WordPress version without affecting your online presence.
The bigger your website is and the data we need to transfer, the more time it will take to migrate everything. To give you a better understanding of the timeline, we recommend that you get in touch with our team, and we can discuss the specifics of your case.
