THE BUSINESS CASE FOR MIGRATION
Corporate data for every department was stored in OpenText/Hummingbird DocsOpen (HDM) and needed to be migrated to the new intranet site built on SharePoint2016. Proventeq played a pivotal role to enable PoolRe to migrate quarter of a million documents to a new Information Architecture designed on SharePoint 2016.
THE MIGRATION SOLUTION
Proventeq worked closely with the IT team at Pool Re to ensure a timely transition to the new intranet platform, thus accelerating the adoption of Microsoft SharePoint 2016.
Proventeq Content Analyser and Migration Accelerator were the key technology solutions used to migrate content into SharePoint thus providing an automated solution and reducing the overall cost of migration.
Using the Proventeq Content Analyser, the Discovery process helped to identify any inconsistencies in content and security and help create rules to make them compatible with the new design in SharePoint.
This solution provided an expedited migration to SharePoint with the ability to migrate all relevant metadata.
A UNIVERSAL PLATFORM
Migrating from five different source systems can pose different challenges. Our expert team merged millions of assets into one, easy-to-use site which increased the accessibility of relevant documents for their employees.
Successful consolidation of content from various source platforms and multiple repositories into Microsoft SharePoint. Business downtime during migration was greatly reduced using managed migration.
Security was extremely important to PoolRE. Each piece of content was reassigned the same level of security as within the origin system, to ensure the asset library remained protected.
