Metso Outotec is a frontrunner in sustainable technologies, end-to-end solutions and services for the aggregates, minerals processing and metals refining industries globally. Their goal is to improve customers’ energy and water efficiency, increase their productivity, and reduce environmental risks by leveraging a deep product and process expertise.
Faced with the need to merge over 20 Autodesk Vaults (Basic and Professional), Metso needed a reliable partner to carry out data migration and integration successfully and within a reasonable timeframe.
Challenges included importing data from a diversity of other systems like SAP and Windows Explorer, as well as adjusting the sources so that the data would fit the target Vault.
Since the data had to be imported from a wide variety of different sources, the company opted to carry out the migration independently, in order to speed up the process and reduce the constant need for communication with the partner.
Hence, we provided our user-friendly software components allowing the company to manage the whole project internally with only a basic knowledge of SQL needed to modify the data via SQL Management Studio.
As a result, Metso was able to adjust Vault Basic data to Vault Professional behaviours, improve the quality of data from different source Vaults so that they would fit the target Vault, and successfully merge 6 Vaults within a timeframe of barely 9 months.
