Hi, I have a website which runs on the telligent platform. I need to migrate it to SharePoint 2013. Can you please let me know what the tools are available for it and pros and cons of them.

Sorry, this is really very broad. Can you indicate what type of website and give a little more information? Not sure this can be answered in it's current form and may need to be closed, sorry. – SPDoctor May 3 '13 at 10:21
Please, even if English is not your first language, use some punctuation. This will help a lot with making your question easier to understand. – teylyn May 3 '13 at 10:48

Good or bad, this actually appears to be the only tool available. – John Chapman May 3 '13 at 16:44
This could be done in few clicks using Telligent WebParts for SharePoint. – Warlock Sep 18 '13 at 14:55
Why the down vote? (presumably @Warlock) The link provided shows data can be migrated which is what they want, not maintain 2 environments, 1 to house the data and another to surface the data. – Eric Alexander Sep 18 '13 at 17:14
This seems to infer that MetaWeblog API been around since Community Server 2,‌​eblog-API.aspx. – Eric Alexander Sep 18 '13 at 20:01
add an underscore to both sides of the 2600, 2600, the markdown isn't working right. The question was a tool to migrate off, telling them to stay on both systems and pay both licensing costs is not practical when they want to leave the platform. – Eric Alexander Sep 18 '13 at 20:10

It is not required to migrate data physically, because Telligent provides SharePoint WebParts to display forums/blogs/wikis. You just need to install this web parts and configure your integration.

You can also use some 3-rd party tools like from ShareGate, Metalogic or Avepoint. All have many similar features. What about Pros and Cons - it's better to test all of them and find what tool is better suites your needs. Good luck!
