APPLICATIONXTENDER EXTRACT SERVICES

We understand that companies need to change their Document Management Systems.  Perhaps you were acquired by another firm and are moving to a different core platform.  We are here to help you if that is the case.  We have migrated hundreds of millions of pages and have built tools to shorten the effort and lower the cost.

 

The bottom line to us is that you have invested years or decades into ApplicationXtender and the safe storage of your records.  We are going to make sure that you do not lose any of those valuable records and migrate them to your new system.

The power of ApplicationXtender to store hundreds of different types of records with features like annotations can make a migration out of ApplicationXtender complicated.  When our AX Migration Team meets with you, they will review these considerations so that can maintain the necessary information from your current system.

Data and Image Management Out of AX

If it was only so simple as copying out the images and data.  Moving images and data is complicated – especially when the system has existed for years and records and data have been stored in a wide range of formats.  This becomes even more complicated when the new system requires specific format or record types.

  • Image Size Management
  • Image Type Conversion
  • Data File Structure
  • Image and Data Delivery Requirements

Performance and Timing of Extraction

  • Determine extraction windows

 

Sample Extraction Plan

  • Caso will perform an extraction, consisting of a full extract, prior to the production cutover. This will allow for incremental extractions to address document updates. Overall timeframe is as follows, with P = Production Cutover Date/Weekend.
  • P – 4 weeks: Optional test full extraction**
  • P – 3 weeks: Full test extraction
  • P – 2 weeks: 1st Incremental extraction
  • P – 1 weeks: 2nd Incremental extraction
  • Production cutover weekend

** At this point, data will be ready to test the full import process as it will be run for Production (e.g., dry run)
