publisuisse has long depended on OpenText eDOCS to protect and manage their information assets. Over the years, publisuisse has accumulated over 200,000 objects in their eDOCS library including annual reports, newsletters, and internal project documentation. The custom portal and the publishing mechanism were built by ImageWare, a content management services organization also based in Switzerland.
The portal met the company’s needs for publishing, but had limited scope as a custom solution. As Microsoft SharePoint 2013 was being marketed and released, the IT team at publisuisse began to research the potential benefits and effort required to transition away from the custom portal.
