Caliente 3.0 speeds ECM migration

US firm Armedia has released an updated solution for migrating content from a relational database to ECM platforms such as SharePoint, Alfresco and Documentum.

Caliente 3.0 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 currently integrates directly with the EMC Documentum, Microsoft Sharepoint and Alfresco content management repositories, and supports file or relational database content and associated XML orCSV 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 process 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.

“Caliente 3.0 is a big step forward from the prior version,” said Jim Nasr, Armedia CEO. “The ability to now be able to migrate structured content from a database into an ECM repository opens up a lot of opportunity for organisations to better manage legacy structured or semi-structured content.”

New Caliente 3.0 features include: native relational database migration support, support for CSV file format for metadata, richer, flexible XML configuration interface, configurable transaction sizes per processing thread, document versions, checkpoint restarts (in case of session interruption) and Alfresco ECM repository support.

“Armedia Caliente 3.0 offers tremendous value for organisations looking for a simple, scalable migration tool to support their ECM initiatives,” saidNasr. “Caliente’s repository based licensing makes it a very affordable option for most organizations dealing with an ECM migration initiative.”
