Thought Leadership on Business Strategy & Technology Value presented by Paragon Solutions.

A proper methodology defines what a content migration process will look like – and the level of success it will achieve.

Generally, a well-defined content migration methodology includes a set of accelerators, templates, documentation and quality guides meant to help businesses efficiently and successfully implement even the most complex ECM migration projects.

Additionally, a well-defined methodology will include such best practices as content governance, content integration, converging capabilities, enterprise content management consolidation and expansion, an information model and an intuitively structured enterprise content management program designed with end users in mind.

A well-defined methodology will typically need to include several measures to be a success, including planning and developing templates; understanding the value of your data; taking advantage of the latest tools and technologies; building quality outcomes in stages; and focusing on user adoption, as usability of data is critical.

Planning and Developing Templates

A well-planned migration methodology usually outlines the development of a template for the migration plan, a template that specifies migration mapping, a template for the migration execution summary report and other vital templates.

Understanding the Value of Your Data

Such items as analysis checklists and quick reference guides are typically included in a content migration plan. These reports make it easier to understand your valuable data, including essential guidelines and other critical information, at a glance.
