Armedia Releases Armedia Caliente – EMC eRoom Migration Module

by | Mar 23, 2010

Atlanta, GA—March 23, 2010—Armedia LLC, a leading provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) related products and IT solutions, announced today that it has developed and released a brand new EMC eRoom Migration Module to its flagship Armedia Caliente (“Caliente”) migration product.

The Caliente eRoom Migration Module has a simple goal: “export, transform, and load – destination your choice”. EMC eRoom has been officially marked for End of Life (EOL), so a planned migration is likely needed for the tens of thousands of clients that use eRoom. EMC provides alternative options through EMC Documentum Collaboration Services and EMC Documentum CenterStage. There are, of course, many third party collaboration tools available as well (such as Microsoft SharePoint or Alfresco). Armedia’s philosophy: migrate to platform of your choice.

The Caliente eRoom Migration Module works by first exporting content and metadata from eRoom’s proprietary format into an open, well-formed XML format. Secondly, a transformation is performed on the XML to support the formatting required for ingestion into your ECM platform of choice (currently the EMC Documentum, Microsoft SharePoint and Alfresco platforms are supported). Finally, Caliente’s ingestion engine is used to import content and metadata into the new ECM repository.

“We are very pleased to extend our Caliente product to include this new eRoom migration piece after the successes it has had on multiple commercial and government accounts” said Jim Nasr, Armedia CEO. “We have had multiple client inquiries about such an addition to Caliente and it seems that there are a large number of such eRoom migration projects currently being planned or investigated. Additionally, we believe that our affordable repository based licensing model will make this a financially viable choice for eRoom migration for many interested organizations.”

About Armedia Caliente

Armedia Caliente, currently version 3.1, is a server based application which enables automated importing and exporting of content and metadata from designated file folders or relational database tables into and out of an ECM repository. Caliente integrates directly with EMC Documentum, Microsoft SharePoint and Alfresco content management repositories, and supports file or relational database content and associated XML or CSV formatted metadata. In addition, Caliente provides a development (scripting) framework to add custom tasks or configure complex migration activities that require multiple nested steps or non-trivial validation procedures. Architecturally, Caliente is designed to run as a multi-threaded application where as many threads as needed (depending on physical server and network capacity) can be run concurrently to complete a very large amount of migration transactions in a short time.
