New system! Now we just need to get the documents transferred from the old system.
It’s just not as easy as one would think… The project gets delayed, users can’t find the documents, data is lost, etc.
Hopefully this guide can help you avoid just that.
It is often necessary or desirable to migrate documents from one system to a new one in several steps. This adds a lot of complexity!
If you know where to look out for the worst risks and pitfalls in advance, they can be dealt with in due time.
Active documents must be in a system where they can be easily accessed and worked with, such as a document management system. But should inactive documents also be stored there just because they once were active? This article looks at that issue.
Our customer repeatedly receives a large volume of documentation from various subcontractors. Together we have set up a partially automated import, which ensures that the documentation lands in the customer’s document management system. This case is from life science.
A signature can lose its validity when documents are moved, for example when a new system is put into use. We explain the problem so you can take it into account.
Document migration is often underestimated in terms of complexity and criticality, and we warn against it several places here on the blog. So what are the complexities of migration, and what are the paths through them. We dive into the complexity of migration.
Document migration is often underestimated in terms of complexity and criticality, and we warn against it in several places here on the blog. So what is the criticality of migration, and how much does it hurt to fail? We dive into the criticality of migration.
If we are going to migrate digital documents, we need to be very precise about what a document is so that we migrate the document in it’s entirety. The risk of not being precise is that documents lose their integrity during migration.
When new IT systems are implemented, the focus is on making sure they can do what we need in a good way. Only scarce interest is devoted to the migration that typically is waiting around the corner. This can backfire and cast a negative light on an otherwise well-implemented new system.
