Seamless Migration by Shinydocs

Stay on schedule and under budget with our seamless migration solution for Content Server

Shinydocs is taking the pain out of data migrations.

You probably know us as OpenText’s best-selling solution extension. Now we believe our approach to migration can help you get your clients to to a successful and seamless migration without the usual pain of missed deadlines, overrun budgets and a perceived lack of success. Take a look at our Migrate solution in action.

According to Gartner, 60% of enterprise data migrations are viewed as a failure. This happens for a variety of reasons:

  • The project dragged on longer than expected
  • It went over budget 
  • The amount of work involved was seen as too high
  • End-users didn’t want or follow the changes

Benefits at a glance:

Today’s complex business environment is driving customers’ requirements for fixed-fee migrations. Shinydocs is the only vendor with the industry’s first and ONLY zero change management migration. Users keep the same UI pre-and post-migration, all the while automating the prep work for migration.

Zero Change Management

With Shinydocs, users can keep working, even when migrating

Fastest Speed to Value

Within minutes, start moving files into a knowledge management solution

Fully Compliant

Once migrated, files have an audit history, version control, and user-managed permissions

No Limits on File Types

We don’t limit to what can be migrated. Move linked files such as AutoCad and linked Excel

Zero-change management for end-users

Users access their information as they always have. File paths haven’t changed. Permissions, create and modify dates remain untouched while unimportant duplicate, trivial and obsolete files are discretely disposed of. And while this massive enterprise endeavour is going on? Users remain blissfully unaware. There’s no scheduled downtime, no need for extensive training or rigorous data preparation — zero change to the way users access and edit their active documents.

What the end-user sees before migration:

In this example, the user accesses their G: Drive to retrieve files (Including linked Excel and AutoCAD files)

After Shinydrive (It’s the same experience for the end-user):

After Shinydocs Migration, the user accesses their files in the exact same way, and continues to use their G: Drive

Our modern solution crawls through all the databases and file shares to dynamically gather intelligence about a company’s enterprise information, wherever it resides. By analyzing metadata, permissions, file attributes and full-text information, it can act on your information and migrate relevant content. Meanwhile, accumulated digital redundant, obsolete and trivial (ROT) information is dispensed with. This all happens without disrupting end-users.

Shinydocs Migration moves enterprise information from file shares and legacy systems to the cloud or an ECM. Full fidelity including create dates, modify dates and permissions is maintained. Duplicate, trivial and temporary files are identified.

Unlike other solutions that require professional services and prohibitively expensive set-up costs, Shinydocs Migration is a pure software solution requiring one hour up front work prior to delivering the best process in the world.

Migrate relevant information to the cloud, ECM or even hybrid solutions with clarity and confidence. With Shinydocs, all files get an audit history, version history, user-managed permissions, classifications and reporting providing eDiscovery for compliance with regulations like GDPR.
