Migrations and decommisionning

A specific activity requiring real experts

A migration consists in the transfer of set of data from a given source system (or application) to another one. It can have many reasons:

  • The archival and decommissioning of the source system
  • The replacement of a system with one offering more functionalities
  • End-Of-Life (no more support from the provider)
  • An incompatibility of the system or application with a change of the environment
  • Information system simplification following a merger or an acquisition
  • etc…

  • Depending on the complexity of the source and target systems, the volume of data, its variety, the plasticity of the scope of data to be migrated, data ownerships and responsibilities, etc … a migration project can be very complex.

    Infosquare has developed a specific methodology for performing migrations. It is the result of the industrialization of several processes and tools resulting from successful and yet complex migrations carried out at customers. The specific tools that Infoquare provides to its customers enable it to successfully carry out the most functionally and technically complex migrations.

OUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE

MIGRATION BETWEEN SYSTEMS

Migrate data between two systems while guaranteeing the quality, security and performance of the migration, providing a constant reporting and the availability of the source and target systems.

APPLICATION ARCHIVING AND DECOMMISIONING

Store and maintain structured and unstructured information from decommissioned applications within a consolidated repository that allows the retention and consumption of archived data and content in accordance with data governance regulations and requirements.

DATA SYNCHRONISATION BETWEEN SYSTEMS

Define robust mechanisms enabling a constant and/or on-demand synchronisation between two systems, whatever their location (cloud/on-premis/customer/partner) and their technologies.


EXAMPLES OF PROJECTS


PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY M&A: migration between two document management platforms

  • Migration of documents from an OpenText Content Server platform to a Documentum one
  • Project Management and coordination with the Legal and Data Disposition departments and the technical teams of the two companies
  • Controlled and uncontrolled documents including: R&D, Quality, Clinical Studies, Regulatory Affaires, QC, IT, etc…
  • Complex Mapping and transformation rules
  • Functional and technical isolation of documents having so-called “mixed” content (sections owned by both companies)
  • Technologies: Documentum, OpenText Content Server
