Data Migration From BMC's Control-D


HOUSTON, TX, September 3, 2009 -- DSI, LLC. today reported on the completion of a project aimed at migrating a legacy BMC Control-D document archive to an OpenText’s VistaPlus archive.

The project was performed in support to OpenText professional services and with the cooperation of the customer’s technical staff. The customer, a large supplier of wholesale groceries and services to grocery stores, convenience stores and schools, had been using Control-D for Windows for its document management needs and wanted to move to the Open Text Report & Output Management Suite (formerly Vista Plus).

Data Strategies worked closely with OpenText and the customer to design the target archive and define the mapping of the structure of the legacy archive into the structure of the new one. This was a pre-requisite for a full automation of the migration process.

The migration was performed using Data Strategies' proven off-line document migration process and platform. The project involved the extraction of over 5 million documents (Line-data/Text, Excel, TIFF, PDF, MS Word/Excel, PowerPoint, and DJDE Metacode files) and their conversion to the format specified for the ingestion into the target archive. Over 450 GBytes of compressed data were converted.
