Canadian Blood Services: Policy-compliant Upgrade and Migration to EMC2 Documentum 6.7


Case Study | Canadian Blood Services

Policy-compliant Upgrade and Migration to EMC Documentum 6.7


Canadian Blood Services had already used migration-center successfully in a previous project and were in additional need for an EMC2 Documentum upgrade. As they were also required to change the operating system to Windows 2008, an in-place migration was not possible. The main challenge was to ensure that all retention policies that were tied to the information and repositories were migrated properly. Furthermore, the new EMC2 Documentum repository had to be auditable and traceable for the retention.


  • Comply to records policies
  • The already existing migration-center core was equipped with an additional adapter
  • The project was delivered on time and on budget

»migration-center is a great product. It had richer features and functionality than the previous ETL tool we were using. It alleviated the need to do any custom scripting for migrations and helped us to comply to our records policies.«
