Since Ektron joined Episerver, we've combined the best capabilities of both platforms into the Episerver Digital Experience Cloud. While we continue to support the Ektron platform, many customers have chosen to extend their solutions or move to our new platform. Learn about the benefits below.
Ektron CMS is still supported, but Episerver recommends that customers should be on at least version 9.0 or greater of Ektron CMS or the Digital Experience Cloud.
This will depend on the size and complexity of your site, but the majority of upgrades are completed within 2-4 months.
The converged platform offers Ektron customers many advantages and new features that neither Ektron nor Episerver customers had before. Because of this, we are unable to offer a completely automated upgrade mechanism. Instead, we have put together a package of partner services including tools and Expert Services accelerators to help your partner facilitate and simplify the move.
