There are a variety of scenarios where businesses need to migrate documents and index records from and between Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technologies; technology platforms such as their CRM, Case Management, Document Management, or other solutions. Reasons for migration include end-of-life software, M&A activity, consolidation, organisational growth, the need to support remote working, and the implementation of department-specific software.  

Incumbent ECM solutions can hold extensive records, reflecting the complexity and scale of the business. This is further complicated by the customisation and configuration of systems as they are established by an individual organisation. When it becomes necessary to migrate documents and data, finding an efficient and accurate route that doesn’t require significant manual effort, IT resource and cost, can be a challenge.  

Embrace Digital provide accurate and efficient migration of documents and data, reducing costs and providing you with the freedom to select the best technologies for your needs without having the burden of managing the transition alone.   

Whether you require us to manage your overall migration project or to support your team in migrating the more complex non-structured documents and data, Embrace Digital will work with you to find the right approach for your business and to develop a migration roadmap. 

Complex data – Avoid unnecessary cost and delay

ECM solutions are integral to business operations and often reside across multiple business units and functions.  As such, the volume of data and documents held within these platforms is significant, making data extraction a complex operation.   In particular, older documents and data tend to be in less structured format, without naming conventions.  As a result, this data can be difficult for organisations to map efficiently in the instance of a data migration, with some companies needing to employ additional staff to manually categorise these files ahead of migration.  

Embrace Digital use the latest capture, classification and data extraction technologies to accurately and efficiently extract and migrate documents and meta/index data from one or more existing solutions into your new ECM/document repository solution, whilst carefully managing your existing integrations. Using proven methodologies, Embrace Digital deploys a migration platform to address the different document and data types within your repository to make sure all data is migrated as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.   

We work closely with our clients to provide them with the support they need – from managing a migration project in its entirety to providing support to transfer the most complex data that is too costly for in-house teams to address.  We are familiar with all major ECM solutions and document repositories and work with you to determine the best approach for your business based on your requirements and resources. 

Embrace Digital has successfully migrated clients utilising one or more incumbent document management solutions, working closely with them to manage existing integrations, to increase the functionality and breadth of their end solution. 

Having an efficient and cost-effective method for migrating your business’ data allows you the time and freedom to choose the best solution for your organisation. Organisations can also use this transformation exercise as a timely opportunity to clean the data, removing duplicates and old, out of date information
