Data Migration Tools

Complex data migrations or clean-up made easy.
End user batch import / export made even easier.


Migration Tools

DocMigrator provides functionality to migrate data between repositories on the same platform or across platforms, or even back to the source to do a data cleanup. Functionality includes:

  • Rules-based mapping of metadata: replacement, concatenation, substrings, query-based updates, adding and dropping values.
  • Handling of versions, renditions and virtual documents.
  • Migration of related objects, including remapping of object IDs (for WebPublisher)
  • Keep original creation / modify dates and users

Migration Tools

For Documentum only, SysMigrator allows migration of all system objects required to support migrating content from one environment to another, including:

  • Users, groups, roles
  • ACLs
  • Types
  • Procedures
  • Workflow templates
  • Jobs and Methods
  • Registered tables
  • TBOs / SBOs
  • Any custom system objects

including BTA

BatchPorter simplifies end user batch import and export, and even automated processing (using Background Transfer Agent BTA). It uses Excel for the metadata. Key features:

  • Creation of drop-downs in the Excel from Documentum data dictionaries to facilitate subsequent import mapping
  • Handling of versions and renditions
  • Import and export of virtual documents / folder hierarchies
  • Creation of folders as required
  • Creation of an “errors” Excel sheet containing failed items to be re-run separately

Our clients opinions

  • As a closet-case developer, I think I couldn’t have designed the product any better. We chose the product because it was a clear leader among the others. It is truly a great product and designed with the user in mind (simplicity to achieve business processes).

  • We did a comparison of D2 vs. CARA to replace Webtop and found CARA to be far superior in the features our users, as well as Administrators, value. In addition to a very robust, stable, and highly configurable product, there were two other things that tipped the scales dramatically in favor of CARA. One was the responsiveness of Generis to suggestions for enhancements and the remarkable turn-around time in which we were given the updates for testing purposes. Read the Press Release.

  • This is truly remarkable. I honestly do not recall ever seeing a sentiment change of this magnitude from improvement of a system. This is a fantastic accomplishment and completed seamlessly.

    Ashley Birch Global Head, Information Strategy, Systems and Analytics at AstraZeneca
  • I would like to express to you the enthusiasm that me and my team have, since CARA replaced our previous system! CARA is easier to use and faster! If our previous system was moving at the speed of a bus, CARA is moving at the speed of a fighter aircraft! Now we do not wait for minutes to refresh the page and proceed! I really cannot express how big the impact is to our everyday interactions with the system! Please share my appreciation to the team who approved it and developed it! They have done a fantastic job!
