There are several drivers for ECM migrations, such as replacing your legacy systems, digital transformation projects, IT consolidation and so forth.
Figuring out which driver is leading your project is important, as it determines requirements for the migration project. While the ECM market is mature, it is still undergoing considerable changes, both in terms of vision as in terms of consolidation. It may even determine whether you should be integrating rather than migrating.
Over the years, Xillio has developed own software specifically for migrations of enterprise content management systems with main focus on easy export and import data. The software consists of a tooling in which years of knowledge and experience are combined with migration-specific functionality.
In addition, Xillio has developed content services to monitor migrations from A to Z, to automatically enrich with metadata, to de-duplicate document sets and to execute delta migrations.
There are dozens of ECM platforms available, all of them having their pros and cons. People have a different opinion about which platform is the best. But whether you are migrating from Alfresco to Documentum, from Livelink to SharePoint, Alfresco to SharePoint, HP Trim to Oracle WebCenter Content, or finally migrate content stored on file shares, the pitfalls are always the same. That’s why you need a proven approach to plan and carry out the ECM migration in a faster, cheaper, more efficient and more accurate way than traditional means.
Xillio has successfully carried out hundreds of ECM migrations in the last years at multinationals, small enterprises, universities and government institutions. For example, we did an automatic content migration from Oracle WebCenter Content to Alfresco using Xillio migration software along with Oracle WCC and Alfresco connectors. In addition, we migrated multiple repositories to one new central ECM. Download the below case studies to learn more about these projects. Or have a look at our clients list.
A Enterprise Content Management (ECM) migration is the transfer of content, workflows, meta data, information architecture, and user permissions from one platform to another. The ECM space is changing at a rapid pace, which makes your options more complex.
ECM migrations can be fairly complex and may be subject to compliance and governance rules. This means you will need to use a thorough approach, or your migration project may fail. Sometimes, you even need a plan B to successfully complete a content migration project.
