Boehringer Ingelheim: Secure High Volume Data Migration to FirstDoc


In the pharmaceutical industry, modifications in operational procedure, business area changes or simply the integration of a new corporate acquisition often lead to massive adaptation costs. In order to simplify matters, many companies therefore move from highly customized Document Management Systems (DMS) to standardized systems like FirstDoc from CSC. This often implies a content migration of extremely large data volumes with complex structures and an extensive version history. A successful project of this kind at Boehringer Ingelheim demonstrates how this can be done with migration-center from fme.

»The Delta Migration Concept was the optimal approach for us, and the migration-center definitely the right tool. With this we managed to migrate all documents accurately, in auditable fashion and under observance of all regulatory requirements. During migration we received detailed reports on progress and potential errors. Despite the large data volume and the complexity of the migration, the fme staff tackled all challenges professionally and with high dedication to the project.«
