Industry: Phamraceutical

Company: Our customer is a leading human therapeutics company in the biotechnology industry. For more than 25 years, the company has tapped the power of scientific discovery and innovation to advance the practice of medicine.

Summary: As one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world – a major challenge is ensuring that internal and external collaboration becomes standardized on a single platform. In this case, the company determined that Microsoft SharePoint MOSS 2007 as the desired platform moving forward. Because eRoom had been the platform for collaboration for a long period of time,, there was wide usage/adoption by their user community. It was extremely important for them to seamlessly transition eRoom users and their content over to an existing SharePoint environment. This transition needed to happen swiftly and with as minimal an impact as possible.

Solution Summary: Verinon’s migration services team employed their Easy2Share migration methodology, which consists of 1) Analysis of the customer’s eRoom environment through robust reporting. 2) Planning for issues relating to user permissions and platform differences requiring change management and possible customizations. 3) Extraction of all content and associated privileges from the source system, 4) Transformation of all source content and user privileges through the Easy2Share tool into a staging environment. 5) Loading of all objects into SharePoint. 6) Validation by the Verinon services team that the content is accurate and migrated per customer requirements. 7) Handover of the newly migrated content to business owners/users.
