Provides a Fast and Cost-Effective Migration from the Hummingbird Content Management System to the Advanced Features of Sharepoint 2010


ZSL is a global provider of enterprise business solutions and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner. The company today announced that it has introduced its Hummingbird-to-Sharepoint Migration Services as a key component of its enterprise content management platform.

ZSL’s Hummingbird-to-Sharepoint Migration has a custom webpart that provides an efficient approach to transfer documents from HummingBird (file systems) to document libraries in Sharepoint 2010. The HummingBird DM application is a bridge between SQL database and file system with an SQL statement used to retrieve the following:

  •     Document profile information
  •     Meta Data Information
  •     Versions
  •     Document Path information

Steps for Hummingbird Migration to SharePoint 2010:
1.    ZSL’s SharePoint webpart pulls all of the Hummingbird file and metadata details (including versions).
2.    ZSL’s SharePoint webpart uploads the files into SharePoint document library with file’s metadata details that will be maintained in the SharePoint document library.
3.    Hummingbird folder structures are created in the SharePoint server.
4.    All documents are uploaded with version and history details to SharePoint document library.
5.    If the Hummingbird document name exists in SharePoint Library, then a new filename will be generated dynamically and the existing files will not be overwritten.
