Migrate data to/from IBM FileNet

Most IBM FileNet systems were implemented longer than 10 years ago and are difficult to support from a resource perspective (difficulties in retaining or hiring/training FileNet resources) and often impossible to enhance for new capabilities. Are you thinking about migrating your legacy FileNet? If so, then you will certainly face some interesting challenges. 

Xillio's proven migration approach and its FileNet connectors will guarantee a controlled migration with multiple checks and audits. 

Our connector provides the ability to either extract or import data from the IBM FileNet Content Manager environment. 

Import, Export, Integrate

The connector imports data from Xillio's unified content model to one or more folders of the FileNet Content Manager. All data is imported, including custom properties of all content types, rights, releases, and other FileNet information.

Wish to tightly integrate your business application with IBM FileNet? Then Xillio offers an intelligent cloud-based content connectivity API that - in combination with the FileNet connector - allows you to connect to an object store of the FileNet Content Engine and manipulate its folders and documents. Content and metadata from within FileNet now come accessible through any other application, for instance for workflow management, GDPR-analysis or translation services.
