The increasing importance of fluid, agile, reliable, and secure collaboration is driving more and more organizations to modernize their content management capabilities.
As long as important insights and documents are in legacy systems or spread across multiple file shares and use case-specific repositories, teams’ ability to exchange information and do their jobs efficiently will be compromised – especially if colleagues are working from another location.
Hyland’s acquisition of state-of-the-art content management platforms Alfresco and Nuxeo offers customers a platform as they strive to modernize their capabilities (e.g. by harnessing the cloud, as well as more intelligent search facilities) and as they look to consolidate their content and drive more value from it.
In fact, Hyland was called out as a Representative Vendor in the January 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Content Services Platforms, recognizing its ambition to keep pushing the boundaries with trailblazing, scalable content services platforms and solutions that meet the evolving needs of the modern enterprise.
The success of individual company content modernization projects depends on how readily those organizations can reliably migrate existing content assets to the new target platform, however.
After all, a new content management platform or content service will only ever be as good as the data it contains. If those assets are incomplete, beset by duplication, or full of errors resulting from system incompatibilities, users won’t be able to trust the new platform as they mine it for the latest documents, answers, or insights.
It’s in this context that fme can proudly step forward. In addition to a wealth of specialists and proven data cleansing, enrichments, and migration skills, we offer a rich, unrivaled suite of pre-tested connectors or import tools. These substantially accelerate the reliable migration of content from previous-generation repositories, a variety of platforms, or legacy file shares to more modern platforms such as Alfresco or potentially Nuxeo, owned by Hyland.
Technology is key
Our migration-center toolkit and its extensive source-connector portfolio has evolved over the last 20 years, harnessing all of our vast experience in delivering successful and efficient migration projects.
Another crucial differentiator of fme’s migration-center toolkit and service offering is that live, active systems don’t need to be taken down or switched to read-only mode for a long time while the migration is ongoing. That’s because of the staged migration approach we advocate, which prioritizes system uptime, allowing business to continue as usual throughout the migration project.
