Vital Path Announces Migration Center for the Desktop

At the ARMA Conference, Vital Path announced Migration Center as the newest addition to its lineup of content migration and integration solutions. Migration Center is a desktop solution designed to solve the majority of content migration needs. For more complicated and larger migration projects (over 50 Gigabytes) companies can upgrade to Migration Center Enterprise or the full PathBuilder Server based product.

Migration Center enables end users to migrate their content without the need to hire expensive consultants or have programming experience. Migration Center’s intuitive interface provides easy attribute mapping and dashboard reporting for the most basic user.

Migration Center is designed to provide a complete migration solution, without professional services for eRoom, SharePoint, Livelink, Hummingbird, Documentum, Docushare and File Shares.
Migration Center allows users to map custom attributes and types, migrate users, groups, and permissions, and apply data transformations to metadata values.

Pricing for the solution starts at $2495.

In other Vital Path news, the company's president Jay Rothe, was featured on a panel discussion at the 54th Annual ARMA Conference. The session, part of the Exclusively IT track, was entitled “A Holistic Approach to Enterprise Solutions: How can RIM, IT and Business Process Work in Tandem to Adopt a Solution?”

The discussion focused on the challenge of managing multiple records repositories across enterprises, which is often inconsistent and incomplete, further complicated by a tedious discovery process for each application. The panelists offered enterprise solutions that meet these challenges, and talked about tools available to help and ease the process.
