Boehringer Ingelheim: Secure High Volume Data Migration to FirstDoc


Case Study | Boehringer Ingelheim

Secure High Volume Data Migration to FirstDoc


Boehringer Ingelheim had been running an OpenText Documentum system tailored to its specific needs and containing more than 12 million submission relevant documents. All of these had to be migrated to a Documentum-based FirstDoc system. A very large document collection had to be transferred to the new system, under full observance of all regulatory requirements and with an audit trail of the migration. The migration had to take into account specific and historically grown structures of different business areas, successfully map existing document attributes to the new FirstDoc requirements and reflect the needs of improved business processes. During the migration project’s duration, the old system would have to continue to be fully operational.


  • Disruption free changeover to the new system through Delta Migration
  • Flexibility and transparency of the migration tools
  • Compliance with all regulatory requirements
