Are you looking to migrate to a new site, or perhaps even better, a Digital Experience Platform (DXP) that puts the User First?

Whether it’s from a platform such as Adobe Business Catalyst (BC) or any other platform, Siteglide can offer you a seamless migration with many benefits.

You may want to replace bad hosting and maintenance nightmares and have the opportunity to optimise and future-proof, with a User-First DXP. So, what are the benefits of migrating to a DXP such as Siteglide? 

Siteglide Benefits


Like-for-like website migration is one method, but ask yourself if it is the most beneficial for you and your client. 

At Siteglide, we believe that you should choose the method that best suits you and your clients, so that you can get the best for them and, with this in mind, we have a variety of options that you can choose from when looking at migrating sites to a new platform.


Siteglide is built on PlatformOS who provide a powerful underlying core infrastructure. You can utilise this infrastructure either via the point-and-click Siteglide features, or by accessing it directly for maximum flexibility to get the best of both worlds.

Siteglide has not copied Adobe BC like-for-like - it is a reimagined infrastructure that focuses on speed, flexibility, reliability and performance for a future-proof innovative DXP solution.


Instead of choosing a platform that ticks all the boxes for now, but can’t pivot quickly or keep up with the latest best practices, Siteglide is able to innovate with any new technology. We pass this on to you without you having to understand the core or the code.The core platform also provides the increasing page speed improvements and SEO scores.
