From Arpan Shah's blog:

CMS Migration

Over the last one year, I've been "talking" a lot about the great things that are coming out in Office SharePoint Server if you are a CMS customer. Yesterday, we released some great guidance and tools on helping CMS customers move from CMS to Office SharePoint Server 2007.

From Andrew Connel:

MSDN now has a “SharePoint Server Migration Center” site:

SharePoint Portal Server 2003 and Content Management Server 2002 are truly integrated into a common architecture in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Many tasks such as navigation, summary links, and scheduled deployments can now be performed by users or IT professionals. SharePoint Server 2007 is built upon Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (version 3), which is based upon Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. As a result, you can also use functionality such as master pages, authentication providers, and navigation providers in SharePoint Server. 

You’ll not only find SharePoint specific upgrade & migration content, but you’ll also find MCMS related upgrade & migration content, including (all new content except for the second one, which was updated from it’s original NOV-2005 release):

The first and third links in the list above are great reads for MCMS developers who are looking at upgrading to WCM in MOSS 2007.

Check out the resources here under the Content Management Server section! It includes 4 whitepapers and a CMS assessment tool. Make sure you read the Assessing and Analyzing Your MCMS 2002 Application for Migration whitepaper before you use the tool!

The Microsoft CMS Assessment tool is an application that collects data for a site created with Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2002. Use the CMS Assessment Tool to assess your MCMS 2002 site to determine the level of work required to migrate the site to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

Together with the beta 2 of MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0 Microsoft released a couple of nice documents and tools which should help MCMS customers to plan and prepare the migration to the new version on the SharePoint Server Migration Center
