The Myths Surrounding Content Migration

Content migration has long held the reputation of being risky, time-consuming, and difficult. Companies often fear the change will disrupt key business processes and take years to complete. Information not only includes content, but also the ancillary knowledge and experience surrounding it that provides a wealth of meaning and history. It’s a big move, and can often be overwhelming if not approached with a clearly defined strategy. In addition to a solid game plan, organizations need an experienced business partner to help execute and monitor the content migration for a smooth and seamless transition. With the right combination, a quick and easy path to a modern content services platform is within reach for any organization — and it can be done in weeks, without disruption.
