EMC Documentum Migration to SharePoint

DocAve Migrator for EMC Documentum Migration

Migrate. Quickly consolidate enterprise content from legacy systems or previous Microsoft SharePoint versions into SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, and SharePoint Online.

EMC Documentum Migrator allows organizations to:

  • Easily streamline the data transfer

    from EMC Documentum to SharePoint
  • Preserve and map all associated metadata and security settings

    of EMC Documentum content during the migration
  • Plan migration jobs according to business needs

    with granular or bulk content migration and customizable job scheduling

DocAve EMC Documentum Migrator for SharePoint is the industry's most efficient and cost-effective solution for the transfer of collaborative repositories, cabinets, and folders from EMC Documentum to Microsoft SharePoint.

DocAve allows Microsoft SharePoint administrators to easily automate the process of consolidating multiple EMC Documentum content sources onto SharePoint, thereby maximizing return on investment for legacy content residing in EMC Documentum.

To ensure a complete and successful migration, DocAve's Pre-Migration Scanner provides a detailed analysis of the migration before it is performed, delivering an itemized report of all elements that will not migrate successfully unless addressed further. The DocAve Pre-Migration Scanner will detect and notify you of any illegal characters, user permissions, user names, user domains, and other legacy elements that must be mapped in order to migrate successfully into SharePoint.

Looking to migrate data across SharePoint of the same version or within one SharePoint farm? Check out DocAve Content Manager.

DocAve Migrators and Content Manager form our Migration Solution from previous and current SharePoint versions and a variety of legacy platforms to SharePoint 2010, 2013, or SharePoint Online. 

All Microsoft, All the Way

As with all AvePoint software, DocAve EMC Documentum Migrator utilizes only fully supported Microsoft methodologies and APIs.
