Learn how Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) and Cloud Acceleration Manager (CAM) provides a customized guide for migrating to AEM as a Cloud Service.

Using BPA and CAM

The BPA package should be installed on a clone of the production AEM 6.x environment. The BPA will generate a report that can then be uploaded into CAM, which will provide guidance into the key activities that need to take place in order to move to AEM as a Cloud Service.

Key activities

  • Make a clone of your production 6.x environment. As you migrate content and refactor code, having a clone of a production environment will be valuable to test various tools and changes.
  • Download the latest BPA tool from the Software Distribution Portal and install on your AEM 6.x cloned environment.
  • Use the BPA tool to generate a report that can be uploaded to Cloud Acceleration Manager (CAM). CAM is accessed through https://experience.adobe.com/ > Experience Manager > Cloud Acceleration Manager.
  • Use CAM to provide guidance on what updates need to be made to the current code base and environment in order to move to AEM as a Cloud Service.
