OU Migration Tool
The Implementation team has developed the OU Campus Content Migration Tool, which can be used to assist with the task of migrating existing content into OU Campus. This includes migrating content from a spectrum of content management systems, including (but not limited to) Serena Collage, Luminis CMS, and a host of custom, home-grown solutions.
The OU Migration Tool is just one of many utilities that the Implementations team uses to quickly and efficiently move content and generate support files compatible with an institution′s OU Campus implementation.

Using the OU Migration Tool
The OU Campus Content Migration Tool is a powerful pattern recognition application which has been custom designed to facilitate the rapid deployment of content within an OU Campus site. The tool is most effective when targeting elements of the HTML DOM. Built in functionality allows for the identification of the opening element only. The tool then copies the content within into a custom defined node in a resulting .pcf file.
Future development of the OU Campus Content Migration Tool has been halted, no changes, modifications, alterations, or bug fixes are currently scheduled. The OU Migration Tool is being provided, as is, and as a courtesy to our customers who wish to develop a migration plan using it. Each downloadable package comes complete with documentation related to the current build, 2.4.1. By downloading and using the OU Migration Tool you accept full responsibility for its use and application. Omniupdate, Inc., makes no warrants or guarantees about its performance or applicability to the content you wish to migrate.
