IBM DOORS Classic: Tailoring the Migration Approach

If your organization is using DOORS Classic, the migration process to Codebeamer involves several key steps. DOORS Classic, being the traditional version, often contains extensive datasets and complex configurations which need careful handling during migration. The data structure in DOORS Classic can be quite intricate, with links, hierarchies, and attributes that require precise mapping to the more modern structures in Codebeamer. It’s crucial to ensure that all these elements are accurately transferred to maintain data integrity and system functionality in the new environment.

The good news is that “Codebeamer DOORS Bridge,” especially when combined with AroMigrator, represents the optimal solution for a complete, smooth, and automated migration from IBM DOORS Classic. This combination ensures efficient handling of complex datasets and configurations, facilitating a seamless transition while maintaining data integrity and functionality in the new Codebeamer environment.

IBM DOORS Next Generation: Streamlining Migration

For users of DOORS NG, the migration path to Codebeamer is different. DOORS NG, a more recent iteration, is built on the Jazz platform and offers a web-based interface with a different data structure compared to DOORS Classic. Migrating from DOORS NG involves understanding the nuances of this platform, including its web-based configuration and integration capabilities. The migration process needs to account for the specific features and customizations used in DOORS NG to ensure a smooth transition to Codebeamer, which also offers robust web-based functionalities.

For migrating from DOORS NG, while DOORS Bridge is not applicable, AroMigrator steps in as an ideal solution, handling the migration process seamlessly. AroMigrator is specifically designed to cater to the unique framework of DOORS NG, ensuring a smooth and efficient transition to Codebeamer with minimal disruption.
