Enterprise Search is Not Enough

Published: January 17, 2018 8:50:10 am 224 Views

Most organizations do not have a handle on their content.  Documents can be stored in various locations.  An organization’s invoices may be in a capture platform.  Its contracts may be in a Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.  And its employee documents may be sitting in an On-Boarding solution or Document Management System.  According to AIIM (the Association for Intelligent Information Management) most organizations have over five different repositories, varying from file systems and network share to Enterprise Document Management platforms.  Just finding documents can be difficult.  But is finding enough?

Published: September 4, 2017 8:30:32 am 342 Views

No, we have not gone crazy.  Think about it, you know you’re going to move off of your old content store to a new platform.  The old system just doesn’t do it, if there ever was one in place.  You may not know how much of the content is ROT documents (Redundant Obsolete or Trivial).   You may not know how many documents there are out there to be stored.  So you start the selection process for a new vendor with many unknowns.  But these unknowns are quickly answered once you start your migration.  What if you could find out these answers first?

Today, Migrations Are More than Scripts

Published: May 9, 2017 11:14:59 am 428 Views

Gone are the days when a document migration was as simple as running a file dump and a script to load the new repository.  Spending four to six weeks creating the scripts to custom load your document collection and then several trial and error attempts to move thousands, or at most a few hundred thousand, documents wasn’t trivial but was common for most migration.  Today’s migrations are usually about billions of documents being stored in several different sources and sometime being moved to several destinations.  Yesterday’s migration solutions don’t address today’s migration challenges.

One of the questions we are often asked is, “Wouldn’t a company just migrate content?”  It seems a straight forward issue.  If an organization has various enterprise content management (ECM) and document management systems (DMS) platforms, wouldn’t it just make sense to migrate content off lesser used legacy repositories.  Sometimes this is not possible.  International organizations must deal with Data Sovereignty and Residency, a requirement by certain governments to maintain Personal Identifiable Information (PII) in repositories within its geographic boundaries for that country’s citizens.
