The City of London moves systems to better support records management practices with SeeUnity’s Velocity Content Migration. The City of London wanted to move 4 terabytes of mission-critical content from OpenText Livelink to SharePoint 2013. Initially, when Livelink was configured and implemented, records management was not a part of the project scope. Once this became an initiative, the City of London looked through a variety of options, ultimately selecting SharePoint as their main repository of record.
The ultimate goal was to migrate existing content from Livelink to SharePoint, utilize Gimmal to track records and transform and reorganize content to better support records management. SeeUnity’s Velocity Content Migration solution was robust enough to migrate the 2.5 million documents, and allow for easy searchability of the documents after everything was said and done.
SeeUnity’s Velocity Content Migration enabled the City of London to migrate their content to SharePoint while preserving metadata. It allowed for a smooth transition between systems with minimal downtime and transformed data to conform to the SharePoint standards without losing searchability.
“We thought we were getting a migration tool, but instead we got a partner.”
