3 Key Considerations When Migrating Data To HPE Records Manager

The prospect of having to merge multiple databases to consolidate information and provide a single source of truth is becoming more and more prevalent. We continually see government departments merging, local councils amalgamating or even organisations retiring legacy systems. It can be a complex project and the associated risk of data loss needs to be carefully managed.

Having to merge HP TRIM / HPE Records Manager (“HPE RM”) datasets or manage a migration from another EDRMS often requires validation of millions and millions of records and terabytes of data. This process is often extremely complex with a magnitude of structures to consider.  Effective data validation is crucial to ensure there is no loss of business critical information.

So what are the 3 key things to help you through your next merge with HPE RM?
