THE BUSINESS CASE FOR MIGRATION
Having migrated their email solution to Microsoft Office 365, Advantest sought to deploy SharePoint Online across the business; this migration was beginning with their Global Human Resources departmental functions for America, Asia and Europe.
The planned SharePoint Online deployment would allow collaboration across internal international HR departments and external stakeholders. To ensure data security, Advantest required the deployment to employ a granular security model.
Advantest’s HR department were using the Oracle HR platform with all HR documents stored in Oracle UCM- users across the globe were using a single document repository with a basic security model. This was to be replaced with a SharePoint-based document management system for HR with data separated out by regions and secured to the respective regions.
- Cleanse large amount of assets before migration to SharePoint Online.
- Identify and exclude several sets of redundant data from migration.
- Restructure and reorganise sizeable sets of data due to the use of differing data storage templates across different geographical teams.
- Create the ability to share content with external payroll providers.
Our team of migration specialists conducted a series of workshops to fully understood the HR processes specific to Advantest.
Using this information, we designed a custom Office 365 information architecture for Advantest’s HR platform which met their specific needs. This architecture was then developed and implemented prior to the migration of content from Advantest’s Oracle UCM environment into the HR department’s Office 365 platform. Security was modeled to secure the HR data for each region and yet provide access for external payroll providers to access the data. Overall, our solution:
- Developed reporting syncing utility from Oracle reporting platform into SharePoint.
- Designed, provisioned and configured SharePoint Online to meet strict HR team requirements.
- Restructured content via our Migration Accelerator software.
