Cranford, NJ – April 24, 2013 – Paragon Solutions, an advisory consulting and systems integration firm, today announced the release of an enterprise content management (ECM) migration adaptor for the migration of regulated content from legacy content sources to the NextDocs platform as an extension of its proven Regulated Content Migration solution. Certified by NextDocs, a global leader in providing Microsoft SharePoint-based compliance solutions to life sciences organizations, the solution was designed to meet the challenges of migrating content in a format that meets industry and regulatory standards and complies with the NextDocs platform.

“With the release of this adaptor and application of our best practices methodologies, Paragon can assist life sciences organizations in successfully migrating content from many different legacy platforms into NextDocs to achieve NextDocs compliant documents,” said Steve Zemanick, migration center of excellence lead for Paragon’s Enterprise Content Management practice. 

“With the increase in customer demand for content migrations into NextDocs based systems, we have teamed up with our global partner Paragon to offer a robust migration solution that reduces implementation risk and delivers high quality to NextDocs customers” said Nitin Bhatia, vice president, NextDocs Global Services.

Paragon’s adaptor, which is based on fme AG’s migration-center toolset, provides an easy-to-use interface for building migration mappings and establishing data transformation rules.  The migration framework uses both NextDocs and SharePoint APIs, and supports features of the two applications such as document versions, standard and custom content types and attributes.  While documents will be compliant with the NextDocs platform, complete control over enabling and retaining established compliance features including watermarks, signatures and status, etc. is maintained. 

Paragon’s Migration COE’s methodology and toolset defines an overall approach for the migration of regulated and non-regulated documents, metadata and compliance elements.  The collection of best practices, templates and processes included in the methodology serve as a guide to conduct planning, deliverables, resource allocation, and overall management for migration projects to ensure that migrations are conducted with very high quality, minimal risk, and the least possible impact to the business.

Paragon will be on hand to showcase its showcase its Microsoft SharePoint capabilities and solutions at the ShareFEST conference on April 25-26 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in Philadelphia, PA.  To learn about the conference, go to http://www.sharefestconference.com.
