The client wanted to retain documents from the existing systems and at the same time be able to build a new one with a stronger resilience with regard to changes. The customer could not sort out what information was of importance and therefore wanted to transfer all documents and files to the new Documentum system.
Athena Solutions were given the assignment to perform a pre-study and created a plan with requirements and objectives for the project. The assignment also included an analysis of the old systems and the development of information architecture (taxonomy) in cooperation with the client. We developed a prototype for the system with a so called proof-of-concept migration to ensure our plan would actually work in reality.
The pre-study resulted in a test migration of documents/ information, a requirement specification, a taxonomy specification and a project plan that could be built upon further in the next project phase.
