MAN Energy Solutions: Complex Document Migration from EMC2 Documentum to OpenText


Case Study | MAN Energy Solutions

Complex Document Migration from EMC Documentum to OpenText


MAN Energy Solutions faced the challenge of replacing their existing enterprise content management system based on EMC Documentum and transferring the documents contained therein to a new system based on OpenText. Over the years, a complex document storage system with fixed structures and processes used to manage millions of documents on the terabyte scale had arisen at the internationally operating company. This system was also used as a SAP archive. It enabled metadata-based searches, even outside of SAP. The goal of the complex project was to preserve the data integrity of the documents throughout the migration to OpenText and to simultaneously streamline certain points. The data also had to be enriched in order to replace the folder structure-based document storage system with department- and position-based storage.


  • Data integrity preserved
  • Compliance specifications upheld
  • User-friendliness increased through improved storage structure
