    Has anyone here moved from Ektron to Drupal?  If so, are you willing to chat with me? We are current beginning the journey of web redesign and will be moving from Ektron to a new platform to be determined.  I would love to know more about your experience transferring from Ektron to Drupal, any hardships/challenges, vendor recommendations, etc.  Basically, anything you are willing to share.  Thanks!

    Good morning, Heidi. 

    Did you see this? I haven't fully digested it, but it looks to be a good resource.

    We're also running an increasingly aged Ektron installation and are in the midst of a content audit to prepare for our migration to Drupal. So far our main concern has been how lax we were about how structured our content was in Ektron, which is leading us to spend a lot of time sorting into Content Types. I'm hoping this saves us time in the long run when start actually running migrations.

    There's also this talk from DrupalCon Baltimore a few years ago which talks about migrations over a massive number of PDFs, which may be closer to your use case. I am definitely not the person who refers to Ektron as a garbage fire during the Q & A.
