Vignette Migration to SharePoint

DocAve Migrator for Vignette Migration

DocAve Open Text Vignette Migrator provides an efficient and cost-effective approach to transfer application data from legacy Vignette platforms to SharePoint 2007 and 2010.

This allows SharePoint administrators to easily automate the process of consolidating the full spectrum of corporate-wide, Vignette-based digital assets onto SharePoint, all in a cost-effective manner that does not disrupt business productivity.

To ensure a complete and successful migration, DocAve's Pre-Migration Scanner provides a detailed analyses 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.

Business Case for SharePoint Migration

Business Advantages for Vignette Migration

  • DocAve Vignette Migrator reduces content sprawl and improves worker productivity by centralizing Vignette content and other collaborative assets onto a single SharePoint repository. This allows for more reliable content sharing and information discovery.

  • With GUI-based, drag-and-drop mapping of Vignette elements and content to the associated Microsoft SharePoint artifacts - including users - everything is migrated with precision and ease, and knowledge workers can continue to access their content without interruption. Folder structures, document properties and all associated metadata are retained with full fidelity, ensuring that each document looks and performs just like it did when in the legacy system.

  • Selectively include or exclude content for a migration job. This provides administrators a perfect opportunity to filter out unwanted content as needed during a migration process, resulting in a fresh, simple-to-manage, and clutter-free SharePoint repository.

  • Migrate in real-time via the live-migration mode, or according to a customizable schedule. Granular, point-and-click content migration and flexible job scheduling allows administrators to plan migration jobs according to business needs and other organizational timetables. A dynamic FTP-style graphical interface and customizable illegal-character mapping lets administrators deftly map content and metadata while customizable content and file-size filters allow for efficient and fast plan building. The ability to create new SharePoint groups during migration jobs makes execution that much quicker.

  • No special hardware required – run Vignette Migrator within your existing IT infrastructure from a single Web-based interface. It's simple, quick, and inexpensive.

  • 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.
