Another milestone has been reached this week with our customer, a large insurance company, completing their journey from the legacy IBM platform towards the new Microsoft Office 365 Cloud.

They were looking for a way to automatically move all of the valuable collaboration and Intranet content from the legacy system to the Microsoft cloud platform. To help them complete this with minimal business disruption they engaged T-Systems. As part of the overall migration programme, the journey would involve multiple local entities that will each migrate over time.

Using our purpose build migration factory, which supports migration out of IBM Connections, Quickr and Web Content Manager into Microsoft Office 365, we have completed the migration for a new entity – one of several across Europe. Building on the base requirement for all entities, we introduced some tailored requirements. In this instance, a custom solution was created for the migration of stand alone activities. This custom content type was used as the target location in Office 365 for the activities and their items. Using our component based solution we could simply remove one component and add in another to support the new requirements.

The migration has ensured that the legacy system could be retired and that the business entity had all content and data ready to use in the new Office 365 Cloud with no business disruption.

This is yet another example of our consultants delivering a migration to specification using the flexibility of the migration factory, built within the Vamosa Migration Architect migration software. Read more about our solution and how we can help migrate into Office 365.

Overall the programme is approaching 60% delivery and with another satisfied entity there will be others to follow on the journey to Office 365.
