Cranford, NJ – April 28, 2009 Paragon Solutions, a business and information technology consulting firm, announced today the successful completion of a series of enterprise content migrations for a global pharmaceutical client.
Led by Paragon’s Life Sciences Enterprise Content Management practice, the initiative is part of an enterprise-scale effort to establish a shared services environment, create a smaller server footprint and reduce overall support costs for the client. This effort, which Paragon managed through a Migration Center of Excellence, consolidated nearly a dozen repositories from a variety of source systems that included Oracle, FileNet, Lotus Notes, legacy Documentum and Files Shares. The content was migrated to a single target system that was based on newer EMC Documentum technology.
"Over the course of 15 months, Paragon managed and performed the migrations that were part of the enterprise consolidation strategy we developed almost 2 years ago," said Steve Zemanick, Paragon's migration architect. "This client had three key objectives: retire legacy and outdated systems; migrate to a validated environment for compliance, and manage that environment through a centrally-supported team for better economies of scale," Zemanick added.
Paragon employed its Strategy and Roadmap methodology to define the implementation timing and approach and then utilized its migration methodologies and toolsets to minimize risk to the organization. Incorporated into the approach is partner, fme AG’s migration-center, a Designed for EMC certified product that enables 100% migration of documents into diverse EMC Documentum repositories. Paragon is fme AG’s primary partner in North America to deliver document consolidations and migrations.
