By using Proventeq Content Analytics tools, we produced in-depth reports to understand the existing content landscape and to highlight potential issues that needed to be handled prior to migration. Our Proventeq Migration Accelerator provided the tools required to create complex mappings to move the content from HRSS object store to specific document libraries in SharePoint.
We overcame the lack of classification in FileNet by creating custom classification rules to map existing content to the new Information Architecture in SharePoint.
We dealt with encrypted content using custom SharePoint Application that could decode migrated content.
Additional metadata was extracted and generated from existing FileNet document class attributes. Metadata values were transformed to comply with SharePoint restrictions, using automation. Some of the automation rules successfully handled items with invalid characters and URL, while other rules handled duplicate item names and long items names that were substituted using pre-defined customer inputs.
Using inbuilt features and process in the our Migration Accelerator, the migration was staged over two weeks followed by delta migration after couple of months in response to department being available for migration.
