OpenText eDOCS Migration to SharePoint Online: Making the Right Choice

By Elantis on May 10, 2022

Many organizations in public and private sectors that depend on Document Management Systems (DMS) like OpenText eDOCS inevitably face a challenge regarding the storage of their content, especially when looking to migrate their content from OpenText eDOCS to SharePoint Online.

The challenge: all stored content must be streamlined and accessible so it can be in the right person’s hands at the right time; however, many organizations, such as municipal governments, handle a lot of content containing sensitive information. It can be difficult to strike the delicate balance between ensuring the privacy of your content while also making it accessible to those who need it.

This article details the benefits of an OpenText eDOCS migration to SharePoint Online and highlights the reasons why Elantis can optimize your future SharePoint migration.

The Benefits of SharePoint Online Over OpenText eDOCS

Microsoft SharePoint Online is a cloud-based service that specializes in helping share, store, and update content for organizations of any scale. One of the key benefits of SharePoint Online is that it is a Content Services Platform (CSP) that is designed to boost collaborative working and productivity in addition to having intelligent document management capabilities. This has made SharePoint Online a cost-saving alternative to other DMS platforms like OpenText eDOCS, which often has higher costs for services and licensing.

Although there are some similarities between SharePoint Online and eDOCS, like document versioning, access control, and storage, SharePoint Online provides these features in a way that optimizes functionality for all members of your organization, saving you money while also boosting productivity and collaboration.

Lastly, by migrating to SharePoint Online, you will enable your content to integrate fully with the Microsoft platform, ensuring all content is secure, scalable, and easily integrated with other systems.
