FileNet Report Manager Migration for major Canadian Bank


HOUSTON, TX, September 1, 2015 -- DSI, LLC. today reported on the completion of a document archive migration project from FileNet Panagon Report Manager to ASG ViewDirect.

The customer, a major Canadian bank, had been using Report Manager (aka Greenbar) for storing mainframe reports related to its operations. The legacy system was hosted on a Windows server and used FileNet Image Services for storage on 5.25” optical platters.

Data Strategies worked closely with ASG to define the specification for the delivery of documents, document indexes and annotations in a format suitable for ingestion into ASG’s ViewDirect platform under z/OS.

The migration was performed using Data Strategies' proven off-line document migration platform. It involved our presence at the customer's location in Canada for the generation of platter images of over 1000 optical surfaces using four PlatterImage Genie workstations and sixteen stand-alone optical drives. The subsequent extraction of over 15 TByte of ASCII report data and associated metadata was performed via remote access on customer provided Windows servers.
