Answering the Content Migration Question


Have you ever heard anyone in your organization ask any of the following questions?

  • “When are we going to get rid of this old OpenText Livelink platform?
  • “Are we still paying for this?”
  • “Is this solution right for our business?”
  • “Why do we continue to pay so much for this old Documentum software?”
  • “Why doesn’t this system have a modern user interface?”
  • “Can’t we move all of this into our new Microsoft 365 platform?”

It should be an easy question for you to answer, but for one reason or another, pulling the trigger on a migration has been difficult. You are getting wrapped around the axle with the analysis of the old system and stuck in a rut trying to understand how to map the old schema to the new one. As you start to peel back the layers of the onion that is their heavily customized legacy system, you realize that a migration of this magnitude may be challenging. As you wait, you miss out on tremendous cost savings or avoidance.

You have now standardized on Microsoft 365 as your cloud platform. It is your platform of the future. So, why continue to pay high maintenance and upgrade costs for legacy, on-premises systems you no longer need or that do not meet your current business requirements?
