Dear fellow Business Catalyst partner,
Like you, we’re sad to hear today’s news from Adobe about discontinuing Business Catalyst with an End of Life two years from today on March 26, 2020. We’ve built several hundred websites on the platform since 2008 and will need to migrate those websites to new hosting platform(s) as those solutions materialize in the days ahead.
While Adobe has provided instructions for getting your data out of Business Catalyst, it’s a tedious, time-consuming, and sometimes technically-challenging process that doesn’t allow you to capture all the data in your website.
The good news is our app, Automatic Backups, remains the fastest and easiest way to get your data out of Business Catalyst with the push of a button, and it captures many things you simply can’t export out of BC.
If you’re like most BC partners, your time is going to become more valuable than ever as you scramble to migrate your clients’ sites to another platform, and our app can definitely save you a big chunk of time and hassle. We’ll be using it to get the data out of all our clients sites and we genuinely believe this is the best solution for you, too.
In this spirit, we want you to know we plan on keeping our app running up until the very last day when Business Catalyst waves goodbye. We’re also exploring ways in which our app might make migration even easier. We’ll keep you posted on our developments as they take shape.
Bottom line, we are dedicated to being your trusted partner in getting your data out of BC and easing the burden of migration for all your websites. Please reach out to us with questions or suggestions you’d like us to know as we traverse this unexpected path for next two years together.
