City of Edmonton completes Archive Migration

The City of Edmonton (CoE) IT department in Canada successfully completed a cost saving archive migration this week. CoE choose to utilize the KGS Migration Tool to migrate over 800 thousand data files from a legacy SAP-linked archiving solution to a new target archiving solution. The migration happened seamlessly in the background without noticeable impact for the business community. Certain instabilities with the ailing legacy system required to prop-up the legacy system before beginning with the production migration. Once the legacy system was stabilized and the migration procedure was established, the actual production migration took less than 10 business days.
