Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding assistance

A full range of onboarding services are included or optioned in. The service can be a brand new system setup, or a 'lift and shift' of an existing system, including upgrading MicroFocus products, if required.

We can identify, migrate and transition content, including from:
TRIM, Records/Content Manager, Objective or Opentext
Network drives
SharePoint, and

Transition-in services can include:
Design & Solution workshop
Cloud Architecture Documentation
Service Desk provisioning
Azure Provisioning

DR Testing, including developing a DR Test Plan
Support Client with UAT

Capacity Testing and Penetration Testing can be included as options.

We can also integrate your business systems, such as your CRM or Case Management, to EDRMSaaS using our range of connectors in order to capture and manage vital information across your business.

Decrease your existing internal storage footprint, lower the cost of managing your data, and reduce the cost of software licencing. Also provide better visibility of your information and make searching more efficient, thus saving money in responding to requests for information.

Offboarding assistance

Included as part of the service will be a transition-out plan that has:
• The lead time and schedule for provision to the client of its data.
• The format in which that data can be made available.
• Options for migrating the existing service (including configurations, BCS, security and access model and all records and content) to an alternate provider to ensure continuity of service.

The transition-out is then a defined as best it can without knowing the detail of the target system. iCognition will then undertake contractually to provide all reasonable assistance in the event of a transition out.

The Transition-out cost is a factor of:
Balance of Licences + Margin over original contract period, if applicable
Balance of platform spin up fees over original contract period
Data Migration fees to new platform
Platform fees during transition out

  • Hyper v
Approach to separating different organisations on the same infrastructure

Microsoft Azure uses Fabric for virtualization. Separation is achieved through separation of domains, separate server infrastructure, virtual disks, and separate databases. We do not share Microsoft Azure VMs between clients/organizations. Each client has their own independent environment, firewalls, domain, storage, compute, memory and networking
