Technology

  • Source system: OpenText Content Server
  • Target system: File share
  • Product used: migration-center

Challenge

A construction project company needed to migrate a huge amount of documents from OpenText Content Server to their file share in a short time-frame. During the migration, it was essential to preserve the metadata, such as the date of creation and last modification on all documents and folders. A second very important aspect was the correct replication of the user rights, especially as personal workspaces were part of the migration.

Solution

By using migration-center the construction project company was able to migrate data from two different source systems to their file share with the same tool while retaining all important information.

The fme team’s quick and efficient support helped to resolve all upcoming questions so that the migration was finished in time and even below the estimated budget. All legacy systems could be shut down as planned, saving further maintenance costs.

The construction project company especially liked the capability of migration-center to be easily extended to connect to so many different source and target systems. Having purchased the core software, they now have the opportunity to add new migration paths at a reasonable price to help them with future complex migration projects.

Your tool made our day and fast-tracked our content migration. We can feel that we already exceeded the ROI beside the fact that your team always supported us during the migration. I expect fme to have full success in future projects as every word that you mentioned in your brochure is true.” (Backup & Storage Administrator at construction project company)
