Is Your Metadata Accurate When You Migrate? Highly Doubtful
Most organizations are still using manual tagging. I don’t wish to be insulting, but we are all capable of making mistakes. If you are planning a migration project or are in the midst of one, your metadata is of critical importance.
Migration isn’t simple. Many people regard it as just moving content, but often content has to be reformatted for the new systems or applications involved in the migration. Doing this manually is error-prone, time consuming, and costly.
If content isn’t classified accurately, then end users won’t be able to find it. If they can’t find it, then they will have to do without it or recreate it.
Using a tool to manage metadata is well worth the investment. Preferably, using a tool that generates the metadata for you. Our tools will generate multi-term metadata, as well as clean up your content garbage, and identify records and privacy vulnerabilities in the content to be migrated. Overall, a useful tool that proves value in all phases of the migration.
How do you handle metadata during migration?
Join us for our ‘Why Most Migration Projects Fail – Don’t Be a Statistic’ webinar on Wednesday, June 14th. Most migration projects run over budget or, even worse, fail. This session explains the potential problems and how to address them. It explores intelligent migration, which achieves an infrastructure where relevant content is protected, archived, or deleted during the migration process.
