Just as Oracle users began to gather for COLLABORATE 14, the IOUG-run conference, I was speaking with one of our long-time Oracle customers and the topic turned to her journey with Kapow.
She began, as many of our customers have, in the middle of a major content migration project—several hundred thousand pages—that had begun to slip almost on the very first day. After meeting with Kapow at COLLABORATE she saw the potential and about a week after bringing Kapow Enterprise in-house she was convinced.
What struck me was just how difficult it was for her—a seasoned content management expert—to believe that it was worth automating a content migration. “In the past I’d used specialists to develop migration scripts but we didn’t find very much reuse,” she told me, and went on to say “Despite what experts advocate, I’ve always had to transform content as part of my projects and scripting isn’t well-suited to that. So I took automation out of my migration toolbox until I found you at COLLABORATE a few years back.”
Since then they have placed Kapow Enterprise at the center of their Information Management function, using it to create content from databases, to integrate support documents from outside their firewall, and even to load richer metadata into the index of their search solution. So whether you need to publish data from an Oracle database or migrate content into WebCenter, give us a call and we can help assess whether we’re right for you. You can get the full Kapow Content Migration story from our white paper on the topic.
And if you’re attending COLLABORATE 14 in Las Vegas, come hear Stephen Moore speak on “Automating Web and Document Migrations” Wednesday, April 9 from 2-3pm. He’s on Level 3, San Polo 3501A (Session 908). And don’t forget to stop by booth 1643 at the Exhibitor’s Showcase for a 1-on-1 discussion of your requirements.
