The Legacy Archive Processor (LAP), provides an efficient way to access, migrate, and manage content stored in legacy ECM systems. Our LAP process provides flexible choices to meet specific business requirements and is supported by a team of experienced content services professionals, highly skilled at converting companies from other solution providers.
As with any big change, it is imperative to fully prepare your end-users in efforts to avoid downtime or gaps in accessibility. User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is a critical step in the LAP process. During UAT, end-users test the required business functionality, security, and usability of the new system while emulating real-world conditions. The UAT acts as a final checkpoint to accept and verify the new software before moving it into a production environment. After all testing is complete and the new environment is accepted, the Content Cloud system can then be moved to the production environment and costly legacy ECM systems can be decommissioned. Each step of the LAP process is carefully analyzed for accuracy and efficiency, as well as environmental and process improvements.
The Systemware LAP can replicate existing legacy file structures on a new Content Cloud platform, allowing users a familiar environment for ease of transition to the new technology. We realize no two situations are ever quite the same, so we designed our LAP to provide personalized choices for content capture from legacy ECM systems. Parallel access to content during the migration process is an essential feature of the LAP and helps minimize disruption. Existing content can either remain in place on the legacy repository to be accessed using pointers, or it can be migrated to Content Cloud only when it is accessed. Another option used when retiring old hardware systems is to migrate all content at once. The LAP options maintain proper compliance for retention and data-privacy, while allowing the ability to utilize existing infrastructure to cut costs. Each approach is done seamlessly and with transparency to your end-users.
