Your Guide to Migrating Your On-Premises DMS

Migrating your Document Management System (DMS) to the Cloud can be daunting, but with the right solution, it can be seamless and efficient. Litera’s Cloud Migrator is the perfect tool for the job, with a pre-migration check, detailed audit logs, and easy handling of complex migrations.

The Power of Litera’s Cloud Migration Services for Law Firms

Pre-migration Check: Cloud Migrator is equipped with a pre-migration check. This feature allows the tool to detect data problems so organizations can proactively correct them before the migration begins. The pre-migration check saves time and effort since organizations encounter fewer data problems during the migration, and the process is faster

Detailed Audit Logs: Cloud Migrator shows detailed audit logs to track progress and errors if an object fails to upload. This helps organizations understand their data errors and investigate and address them. Cloud Migrator also provides the ability to filter and group errors, as well as export them

Resilient and Flexible for Complex Migrations: When an object fails to upload, you don’t have to restart the migration with Cloud Migrator. Cloud Migrator continues the migration from where it left off, simply logging an error of a failed uploaded object. This feature saves time and allows organizations to tackle data errors and problems while migrating the rest of the documents.

Run Multiple Migrations: Cloud Migrator allows organizations to run multiple migrations simultaneously.

Out-of-the-box SQL Scripts/Queries: Cloud Migrator provides out-of-the-box SQL scripts for common clean-up tasks on the staging database. This includes deleting empty folders, flat space filing, creating missing users, and removing unused groups.
