Shortened time for an efficient roll-out of Veeva QualityDocs due to precise and transparent migration control
Working with outdated legacy applications involves several inconveniences – high maintenance costs, lack of support, and the inability to comply with industry regulations or safety requirements are just a few of them. Thus, the customer of our latest blogpost decided to evolve. Enjoy the insights into a migration project the fme Professional Services team recently completed.
A specialty biopharmaceutical company had a legacy OpenText Documentum solution which was no longer supported by OpenText. Document Compliance Manager went out of support and proved rather costly to continue with the extended support. Veeva QualityDocs was chosen as the new solution for managing quality documentation and standard operating procedures.
There was a challenge to migrate the data from the legacy system to the new Veeva QualityDocs. The mapping of the metadata between the two solutions was difficult as well as the familiarity of what was currently stored in the legacy system was missing. An analysis was completed with the help of fme Professional Services to understand the legacy data. The data housed was effective standard operating procedures, quality compliance records, and vendor and contractor documentation. There were also audit trails, renditions, and supporting documents stored that needed to be preserved.
Based on the completion of the analysis and a formal migration plan provided by fme Professional Services, the migration project was completed successfully. The fme team utilized its vendor-certified migration software migration-center to perform the necessary migration steps. Once the data was understood, the mappings to the new Veeva QualityDocs solution were accomplished.
The tool of choice – migration-center – allowed a seamless migration from the legacy solution taking advantage of the powerful transformation engine it provides. Next to documents and their content, it supports the migration of audit trails and renditions into new platforms meeting the individual client’s requirements.
Together with the customer, and the help of migration-center, the fme team managed to deliver the project within the given time and budget frame.
At fme, what really matters to all involved stakeholders when executing a customized data migration, is to achieve the client’s target specifications and ensure their satisfaction.
