System Integration & Migration

Organizations often find it necessary to update old product data management systems or to consolidate data from multiple PLM/PDM platforms into one new environment. Data migration then becomes a crucial activity for the organization—one that carries significant risks if not managed carefully.

Every software product in your organization has unique ways of storing the data it creates. In the case of CAD, there are multiple levels of data and metadata available inside each drawing or model file. Each PDM and PLM system has its unique ways of storing this data. It takes skill, experience, and specialized software to conduct a data migration and integration project. Every experienced PLM integrator has been called in to fix a botched data migration attempted in-house.  RGS builds upon extensive experience with PLM installation and integrations, incorporating legacy systems and knows what it takes to efficiently and accurately extract your data.

Razorleaf Clover for Data Migration

Based on its experience in data migration, RGS’ sister company, Razorleaf Corporation, has created a custom software product for data migration. Clover is an open integration platform designed to support implementation, migration or upgrades of PLM applications and databases. Clover can facilitate data migration with systems outside of PLM such as ERP, MES, industrial automation, and CMS using open interface protocols.

The platform operates using industry standard connection methods including SOAP, Web services and direct database connections. Third-party microservices allow users to move files, renditions, and business data in the correct format. It can be paired for 1:1 or 1:many endpoints, offering scalability.

Clover is recognized as an industry standard application integration platform. It has a flexible architecture, allowing it to scale to handle the largest data migration tasks. RGS uses Clover to help clients retain feature sets they have come to rely upon in their application investments. Clover creates a controlled migration path when upgrading becomes necessary.

Clover is an essential part of bringing engineering and manufacturing into a modern infrastructure. Making up-to-date data available across applications accelerates decision-making and drives efficiency throughout the organization.

Clover Features

Clover is based on Razorleaf’ Corporation’s almost two decades of system integration and data migration experience. It was designed by the Razorleaf team specifically for PLM and engineering data migration. The following are benefits of using Clover.

  • Move data in and out of complex business systems fast and accurately
  • Simple to build and deploy
  • Configure even the most complex business processes with flexibility
  • Allows companies to stop manually re-entering data from one system to the next, improving data accuracy
  • Enhances the value of other applications systems by sharing and exchanging data in business process context

If you need to move data from legacy systems or pull together several data management operations into one new environment, RGS is ready with the experience, knowledge, and tools to do the job right.
