The multi-channel challenge

As customer communications move to multi-device targets like smart phones and tablets, many organizations find their legacy solutions inadequate.
In the same time optimization of IT platforms, reduction of costs as well as obsolecence of solutions highlight migrations initiatives.
The older systems—often outputting print formats like Postscript or PDF—or mainframe based, simply cannot handle the new environments. Nevertheless, the shift to a modern, multi-channel Document Output for Customer Communications Management (DOCCM) systems can be daunting. Not only are documents stuck in legacy formats, but it’s vital to keep the investment, education, content integrity, and understanding of the current business environment intact during any migration. Additional challenges include continuing business operations while changing to a new platform system, accurate migration of existing content repositories, templates, and resources—and keeping down the overall cost of the initiative.

Solutions & Products

Simple and elegant solution

The xFAST Migration and Conversion Solution, xTAG, accelerates the implementation of a new multi- channel customer communication system and enriches retrieval as it converts all legacy data, templates, and document models—including business logic—directly into the new formats. The solution preserves past investments and ensures communications continuity, preventing disruption of business processes. It helps ensure the integrity of corporate messaging to the customer, exactly as that messaging was originally designed into document templates and data repositories. Just as importantly, xFast minimizes the costs of change.

Key features of XFAST

xTAG conversions of document templates and publishing resources are based on the extraction and parsing of resources and component models within the platform source repositories.
Agents are deployed (plugin-specific to the source owner), and the interpretation and translation of the assembly rules and composition rules are applied to resources in existing models.
The solution identifies all the components and resources to be migrated
