Upgrade options

Let's be real about upgrades: nobody typically looks forward to upgrading from one version of their Web CMS to the next. Knowing that this is a major issue for many organizations, SDL has put a lot of effort into making the process as painless as possible. We distinguish between various types of upgrades for SDL Alterian Content Manager (ACM):

  • Upgrading ACM Professional or Enterprise edition from v5.x/7.x to v7.2
  • Upgrading from any ACM version to SDL Tridion

Upgrade ACM Professional or Enterprise edition v5.x/7.x to v7.2

Any client running on an older version of ACM Professional or Enterprise can upgrade very easily. The upgrade is a straightforward and relatively trivial task that involves running upgrade scripts that deal with database changes, workflow updates etc. No license cost is involved in upgrading to SDL ACM v7.2 if an active Support & Maintenance agreement is in place.

Trial Upgrade package for moving to ACM v7.2

For the upgrade from ACM Professional or Enterprise edition v5.x/7.x to ACM v7.2 we offer a fixed-price Trial Upgrade package. 

For more information about these upgrades, please contact your SDL Alterian representative or the sales department in one of our offices.

Benefits of a Trial Upgrade:

  • Assess SDL ACM v7.2 capabilities based on your existing website content
  • Prototype the real upgrade and provide SDL the basis for an estimate of a full live upgrade

Upgrade any ACM version to SDL Tridion

SDL also allows organizations to move from any ACM version directly to SDL Tridion, including the option to choose for an annual subscription based model. This provides organizations with the most robust content management system in the market. Special attractive commercial arrangements apply for such an upgrade.

Scoping package for moving to SDL Tridion

For upgrades from ACM to SDL Tridion we offer a fixed-price scoping package that details the effort and details of moving from ACM to SDL Tridion.

Please contact your SDL Alterian representative or the sales department in one of our offices for more information about the scoping package.
