Well, I can't keep stuff under wraps too long. Sooo, a small little announcement about something I built in the past few months. A tool code-named called "PowerStream" that will be officially announced with the new ShareSquared site in a few weeks. This tool allows for the migration from anything (literally) to SharePoint with very little effort. So far, I have tested the tool with several ECM systems (Documentum, oracle, custom, blah) and everything works perfectly! In addition this tool integrates with another tool which I can't announce at the moment, but if you do anything around file plans, this will integrate with tools like Gimmal very easily.
A lot of code came from the design of my Oracle to SharePoint tool that was developed at General Atomics, but this version adds in some of the other code I had from ACS days and some new stuff including:
- Dynamic property setting
- Managed Metadata leveling
- OCR of TIFF and any other image formats
- TIFF page/file merge
- TIFF to OCR'd PDF/A
- Really true awesome redaction capabilities
Want to move your old redundant no featured ECM to SharePoint (on-premises or O365, yeah its CSOM based!)? Let me know, I'll do it really quickly!
