Nic Archer and George Knox will present:
Migrating content is not something that the average content professional will have to undertake frequently, and yet there is a significant reticence towards making the whole process a lot easier - to make the process quicker, cheaper, and less painful through the use of automated tools and support methods. In this session, Vamosa will explore why this could be. We will look at the real and imaginary potholes involved in the tricky exercise of migrating content into a new content management system. To many, the simple ability to access source or target systems may appear to be the biggest challenge, when the real challenges lie in actually choosing what content to move, what modifications need to be made to that content, and how these alterations can be made in a consistent and repeatable fashion. The options for measuring success will also be explored.
Looking at multiple use cases such as AstraZeneca, IBM, and the European Commission (one of the largest SharePoint 2007 migrations), various scenarios will be explored to distill the key success factors including method, choice of tools, and management buy-in. This thought-provoking session will aim to explode the perception that your problem is unique, and show that regardless of the size of the problem or the complexity of the requirement, an automated solution can be crafted to shrink timescales, maximize deliverables, and increase the quality of the content deployed.
