Efficient and easy migration of Documentum


Do you know Documentum?

While Documentum has had significant success in its history, it has also been plagued by a turbulent acquisition history. Its current, and potentially final, home is OpenText, where it is part of a large suite of different Enterprise Content Management (ECM) applications. Regardless of its future, there are a lot of Documentum implementations out there. Business and IT leaders alike have the need to integrate Documentum with other applications, as well as migrate content in and out of Documentum.

Content analysis of EMC Documentum

It’s a known fact that a large amount of business information is unstructured. Your current Documentum environment also contains unstructured content, that may lead to a number of challenges. In particular, the functional and technical management of Documentum is a strenuous process due to the sprawl of the content, as well as the process of performing an upgrade or migration. Furthermore, being compliant is practically impossible with 'polluted' content due to the inability to identify the location of the content. 

The main cause for Documentum ‘content pollution’ is often attributed to the misuse or lack of metadata. While all metadata models were created with good intentions, over time the original model has undergone several alterations by various end users. Often, well-planned strategies, such as content deletion, is not implemented in the workplace. This leads to an imbalance of content collection, and poor document accessibility.
