Client Profile

BAE Systems provides some of the world’s most advanced, technology-led defense, aerospace, and security solutions and employs a skilled workforce of some 83,100 people in over 40 countries. To simplify their web systems, BAE Systems decided to move their public website from Oracle Portal / Oracle UCM-based system to Oracle WebCenter Sites

Proventeq worked closely with their Sites Implementation Partner, Infomentum, to provide BAE Systems with a solution that would fulfill all the requirements and ensure a smooth transition. Proventeq Migration Accelerator was the key technology solution used to migrate content into the new environment.

Complex rules were required for metadata mapping and source classification, to ensure all content migrated from the source UCM system would be mapped and transferred to the right place, and with the right metadata applied.

The Complexities of the Project

  • Complex page layouts for the live BAE website needed to be mapped from source to target.
  • As a multi-language site, the hierarchy needed to be recreated in WebCenter sites for multiple countries/languages.
  • The need to remap the widget present in the source UCM system.
  • The system in use contained many complex page layouts for the BAE website

Solving Bae Systems' Unique Challenges

Retaining page structure

The system in-use contained many complex page layouts for the BAE website, which needed to be mapped from source to target, to ensure these layouts would be available in the new system and retain the structure.

Recreating multilingual site

As a multi-language site, the hierarchy needed to be recreated in WebCenter sites for multiple countries/languages, to ensure this level of multilingual content delivery could be continued.

Remapping widgets

Custom widgets that were present in the source UCM systems were remapped to their Oracle Sites versions, ensuring these could be brought over, further improving the re-use of content from the UCM system.

Link migration

Proventeq Migration Accelerator's link migration ensured that internal links within source content were properly transformed to links in WebCenter sites during content migration.

The Results

Significant reduction in manual effort

The automated, rules-based migration of existing content, including the automatic resolution of internal links, significantly reduced manual effort and cost.

A smooth transition

Allowed BAE Systems to take advantage of their new system with reduced downtime and change over to WebCenter Sites.

Minimal downtime

Built-in Delta handling ensured that content changes during migration were identified and migrated, enabling minimal downtime of BAE System’s live site.
