Getting from A to B the easy way

How do you get documents from A to B when B is NetDocuments? Mike and JB talk the dos and don’ts of migration to theNetDocuments cloud-based platform.

Their approach allows for any number of source systems – or no system at all. JB maintains it’s a bit like moving house. First, he explains that NetDocuments takes a good look at what’s there, how it’s organised are why it’s important. Then, in the design phase,NetDocuments looks at what happens today versus where a firm wants to be - data mapping, security, work space design. Then, during the move, there’s the opportunity to have a bit of a clear out – analysis of data patterns identifies redundant data and ensures that only the latest version of the data is migrated. A bit like moving house!

The guys also chat in detail about theNetDocuments migration methodology and philosophy – the challenges involved and how NetDocuments’ robust proven methodology minimises risk and makes things as pain-free as possible - the chat includes a discussion of the benefits and importance of thorough validation and test migration - standard practice forNetDocuments! Stick to the end and you’ll be rewarded by getting to know the guys at little a bit more plus some curious trivia.
