migration-center was chosen solely to standardize the whole migration process, from beginning to the end. The beauty of migrationcenter was not only that the migration process works pretty much entirely with migration-center, but also in its ability to read source systems. For example, SAP migrations did not need any separate module or framework, eliminating downtime due to lack of extra processes running on SAP side even when migrations were on.
In addition, Tieto built a plugin for migration-center that helps in scanning source systems for content to be migrated and can be easily applied to any source system with little customization. The framework offered by fme made configuring the plugin a breeze.
Another strength of migration-center lies in its ability to work in conjunction with Archiving as a Service technology due to readymade importer plugins: when archival packages – SIPs (Submission Information Packages) – are created for ingestion, they can be easily validated and enriched with migration-center, from simple metadata changes of strings and dates to more complex enrichments.
