IBM FileNet migration to SharePoint Online 


Watch video

In the past years, we have seen an increase in the number of legacy ECM migrations from on-premises document management systems, like IBM FileNet, to cloud solutions like Microsoft Office 365. Do you wish to move all documents out of your legacy FileNet instance to avoid renewing an IBM maintenance agreement? Do you wish to migrate your FileNet files along with the metadata to SharePoint Online or Teams? 

Migrate content from IBM FileNet to SharePoint Online

Xillio has many years of experience with migrating content into and out of legacy IBM FileNet instances, like 4.x, 5.x and older versions. We know how to handle annotations on files, deeply nested folder structures as part of FileNet implementations and read-only records with its retention policies. With our FileNet connector, we can extract all FileNet data (e.g. documents, images, metadata, permissions).

Using Xillio Insight, we can analyze the FileNet data to help you understand the content and metadata in your system and facilitate data-driven decision-making for cleaning up, enrichment, restructuring and migrating your data.

Support any source and target

Xillio’s fast and reliable approach and solution help determine the mapping and transformation of the source data to make it compatible with the new SharePoint metadata model. Importing the data into SharePoint Online, Office 365, Microsoft 365 or OneDrive is done with Xillio’s migration connector.

Xillio’s software has been specifically designed to support any content migration from and to any content management system. Packed with smart features and supported by our experienced consultants, our tooling guarantees the success and accuracy of any content migration project.

Use Insight to analyze FileNet content

In this video, we demonstrate how we can extract content and data from a FileNet environment and fileshares, and transfer the content to SharePoint Online. We explain the use of Xillio Insights to analyze the content and metadata and make data-driven decisions. In this case, we excluded duplicates and text files from the migration.
