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 Content Suite 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.
migration-center, fme’s market-leading migration product, allowed the documents to be migrated to the OpenText target system in a legally and audit-compliant manner. The data integrity was ensured and the desired transformation and cleaning were achieved. Moreover, the folder structure-based filing system was replaced with a new structure in accordance with the OpenText concept of ‘business workspaces.’ The fme team was integrated into the project from the very start. migration-center’s ‘Delta Migration’ feature prevented system downtimes during the entire project and migration phase.
