Organisations today face business critical decisions with the migration of unstructured data from file shares and legacy EDRM products i.e. Trim, OpenText, Lotus Notes, RKYV, Meridio. Whether a strategic directive for cloud-adoption, a reduction of on-premise infrastructure, or to take advantage of cloud-based collaborative platforms such as Microsoft 365, for many the unstructured data challenge often leads to information paralysis, where organisations simply don’t know where, or how, to start addressing the problem.
All organisations have over-retained records, information without context or accurate metadata, orphaned data with no ownership, duplication, complex linked spreadsheets and end-user-computing applications, password protected or corrupt and inaccessible content. Coupled with this, when data is distributed across multiple repositories without consistent policy application and no visibility of informational security or sensitivity, the problem is growing.
Migration to environments such as Microsoft 365 provides opportunities for improved information governance. However, using a “lift and shift” approach your legacy issues will inevitably increase exposure to risk for your organisation when moved to new security models with powerful search and collaboration features. To move forward you need intelligent migration.
Datalift from Automated Intelligence provides an intelligent migration capability to enable fast and measurable migrations delivered using dynamic query based classifications. The solution enables you to categorise, map and prioritise and exclude data across a range of source systems, preserving content and metadata from on-premise file shares and EDRM solutions to Microsoft 365.
Our unique cloud-staging design lifts data to the cloud in advance of migration events for analysis and to ensure accurate prediction of migration performance based on quantity rather than volume of files for the final cloud-to cloud phase. This alleviates bottlenecks with existing infrastructure limitations and go-live events simply needed to gather newly created or modified content during the final stage delta.
Datalift delivers a full fidelity migration and audited process to enable your organisation to restructure your data, at scale, without impacting business as usual. This removes the friction both during the migration process and adds value to avoid perpetuating hidden issues after the migration project has completed. Whether broken Excel links, collaboration requirements for pre-2007 Office files, corrupt OneNote folders, illegal characters and long-paths – Datalift has your back long after migration completes.
