Analysis & planning
Do you have a migration project scheduled? Then bring in our Migration Services team. Our migration experts are available for support:
- On-site assessment of your existing and planned environments
- We will recommend the optimal procedure for upgrading or migrating your environment to the current version or to a new client
- Depending on the complexity of your clients, we also recommend a single or multi-day analysis conducted by fme experts, in order to determine the proper strategy
Proof of concept (POC)
Before starting out big, you should be sure that you have the right plan to fulfill your requirements. This is especially important to reveal possible risks or limits, so you can deal with them at an early stage of your migration project and estimate the total cost and time needed.
Project & communication management
A migration project always requires extensive coordination. Eventually, it is your workforce, which works with the systems and which needs to be interrupted as little as possible during a content migration. Therefore, good project management and the involvement of the relevant divisions is an important matter in migration projects. Benefit from our experience and use our techniques that have been proven reliable and effective in this field.
The migration-center API allows customers and partners to build new connectors or customize existing ones. Either we can provide you with training to enable your IT experts to develop a new connector by themselves or we can develop any kind of connector for you.
Maintenance & support
Additionally to the standard product support, we offer you extended 1st, 2nd and 3rd level support for your individual migration use case by granting you a dedicated supporter to ensure fast and efficient troubleshooting.
You want a migration from A to B without having any hassle yourself. Our team supports various tasks:
- Providing and executing a project plan
- Installing, configuring & operating migration-center
- Taking care of the entire project documentation and communication
Onsite & remote training
Enable your employees to operate migration-center as professionals right from the start. In face-to-face or remote workshops your people have the possibility to work directly and in person with fme AG’s training team. This ensures the best start possible for your first migration-center project. The training includes:
- Full overview of all capabilities of migration-center
- Setup of a working environment
- Hands-on-training for your specific use case
- Q&A session to answer all critical questions
While migrating content and data it is important to verify that all migrated content arrives in the target system by means of quality and quantity. We help you to set up validation strategies for your migration project:
- Black box test strategy
- Creation and adaptation of QA documents and reports
- Definition of representative sample sets
Computer Systems Validation (CSV)
CSV establishes documented evidence which provides a high degree of assurance that a specific computer system will consistently produce results that meet its predetermined specifications and quality attributes.
- ensures data integrity
- reduces risk and legal liability
- helps prevent software problems before reaching production / usage environments
Monitoring & reporting
Especially in large migration projects monitoring & reporting is very critical due to several reasons:
- Ensuring transparency and accountability of the migration
- Early awareness of problems
- Meeting QA targets
We can set up monitoring and reporting tools so that you are always constantly up to date about the current project status.
Installation & configuration
In case you need support to install and configure your migration-center environment, we can also do that for you, so you have it running in no time:
- Installation of migration-center and job servers
- Setup of migration-center scanners and importers
- Configuration of content transformation rules
Depending on the specific use case, a migration can turn into a highly complex project. Besides the technical aspects that have to be taken into consideration, also the project management and communication within the enterprise can turn out to be a challenge, as multiple departments are affected and need to be coordinated.

Our Migration Services team will answer all these questions to make sure that all of these success factors are considered in your migration project.
“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
Even the best tool requires someone to design your target repository model and define the rules for metadata extraction and transformation. Together with our international partners, we provide highly competent assistance in order to guarantee the success of your projects.
