Content Migration in Heavily Regulated Environments

Standardized electronic document management systems (EDMS) help pharmaceutical companies to lower costs by up to 30%. The implementation, however, raises two major challenges: the technical and organizational standardization of legacy structures evolved over many years; and, as the case may be, the integration of corporate entities acquired through mergers.

The implementation of a standardized DMS requires the migration of documents from the old to the new system. The fact that each of these older systems carries its own legacy of insufficient data quality and structure has to be taken into consideration. On a technical level, specialized software, such as fme’s migration-center, is nowadays being used to assist in the execution of such migration efforts. Activities, which a decade ago still required self-developed scripts, can now be carried out at a fraction of the earlier development costs.

Benefit from our best practice methodology for content migrations in regulated environments.

GO OpenText Documentum | D2

Documentum migration made simple and time & cost-efficient! Migrate your content to OpenText Documentum D6, D7 or D2 and the Documentum Life Sciences Solutions from various source systems.

GO SharePoint Online

Use fme migration-center to transform data from on-premise ECM systems in a rule-based manner, restructure it, and migrate it quickly and securely to your SharePoint Online environment.

Go SharePoint Online - The Challenge

With Microsoft’s new Office 365 cloud platform many companies are considering giving up their systems that they host in-house at great cost and switching to the cloud. This move is understandable because managing internal company servers is not only timeconsuming but also expensive. Exchange, Office, and OneDrive are just one part of what Microsoft offers, in addition to SharePoint, to enable companies to make the switch to the cloud. These components work seamlessly with SharePoint Online and simplify the switchover to the world of the big data cloud. However, to start right away the data needs to be transferred to the SharePoint Online environment at first. Microsoft presents its customers with unexpected challenges here.

The configuration and administration of a SharePoint farm is an unwelcome and oftentimes onerous task for most SharePoint administrators. Microsoft has since recently offered its customers  high-performance systems via the Microsoft-hosted Office 365 cloud service that makes this task a thing of the past. If you do however choose the hosted SharePoint Online solution, you are faced with the challenge of transferring existing data from legacy ECM systems to SharePoint Online.

How does migration-center do the trick?

fme migration-center is a software product for migrating content from highly varied source systems into different target systems. It allows you to migrate your data to the Microsoft-hosted SharePoint Online environment from the old SharePoint on-premise farm or other ECM systems.

This out-of-the-box product allows you to transform data in a rule-based manner, restructure it, and migrate it into their SharePoint Online environment with little know-how.

Using a range of available functions (for example, replacing values with the help of regular expressions or mapping old values to new ones), you can define how your data will appear in the target system. Your system attributes, such as the date of modification or the author of a document, are retained during migration or can even be adapted according to your requirements without the need to install any additional components within the SharePoint environment. Migrate any object type, including libraries, lists, documents, folders, and tasks, to your SharePoint Online environment, regardless of whether you use standard or modified content types. The simulation results help you identify and resolve errors early on before you actually import your data into SharePoint Online. migration-center supports you by checking that values are correct, doing away with the irritating trial and error method in the process. As a result you reduce time, costs, and, above all, stress levels!

IBM Domino Application Decomissioning

Application decommissioning made simple with the IBM Domino connector for fme migration-center! Save costs, fulfill legal requirements and finish your project in time.

IBM Domino Application Decomissioning - The Challenge

Over time, most companies using IBM Domino have created a huge number of different applications based on this technology. Even though not all of these applications contain critical information that needs to be maintained if the IBM Domino infrastructure is dismissed, the number of applications that are subject to decommissioning can be huge. The more of these applications exist, the more difficult a migration will be. Therefore, the technical approach to decommissioning must be independent of the application itself.

The technical challenges that need to be addressed in a decommissioning project plan may be diverse:

  • The number of applications can be very large
  • Applications must not be changed to perform migration/decommissioning process flow
  • Applications may contain large numbers of documents
  • Documents can be encrypted
  • Document types in an application vary broadly
  • Richtext fields cannot be easily exported and transformed
  • Documents may contain attachments
  • Documents can link to other documents
  • Documents might have been versioned
  • Documents might need to be editable in the new system
How does migration-center do the trick?

The »IBM Domino connector for fme migration-center« helps overcome the various challenges described above. The product supports a wide range of file formats to export: A document, its metadata (field contents), the attachments a document contains.

By using IBM Domino’s C-API to control export of documents, metadata and attachments, migration-center uses a generic approach that does not require any changes to the application. In fact, it’s independent of the IBM Domino application that is subject to migration or decommissioning, the type of documents maintained by the application and even the metadata (field) structure of the documents. Supporting multiple export formats for documents and the ability to export normal attachments as well as OLE objects contained in rich text fields allows customers to configure the product in a way so that it helps address any of the challenges that might be involved with a migration or application decommissioning project, including legal compliance.

Your Benefits

 

  • Reduce costs and time of your project by using the »IBM Domino scanner for fme migration-center«
