Global control of content with seamless information sharing is an important key factor for innovative and international operating Life Sciences Companies. Therefore, the global Life Science Company CSL Behring decided to introduce the OpenText Life Sciences Solution Suite with its business area-specific modules, which ensures consistent access, compliance and security while improving business productivity and efficiency.

Currently, CSL Behring is using the enterprise content management solution OpenText Documentum including Webtop and D2 as interface. The D2 layer is the technical basis of the OpenText Documentum Life Science Solution Suite, which is specifically developed for supporting business processes such as quality assurance, research and development etc.


With the help of fme’s migration experts and their software migration-center, CSL was migrating content from the enterprise content management system OpenText Documentum to the D2 application. migration-center has been certified for OpenText Documentum for ten years and is able to carry out highly automated, large volume document migrations without interrupting any of the normal business operations. »We are looking back on almost 10 years of good cooperation between CSL and fme and we are very happy to have served CSL internationally again with this large migration project,« says Florian Piaszyk-Hensen, Director fme Products.

“A big milestone of this project is the migration of our content to D2. fme is an important partner in the field of content migrations for CSL offered as a global service. We used the fme migration product when we moved to D2.”Johannes Lichtenfels – Senior Manager Business Solutions Document Management @ CSL Behring
