Migration of PDF Engine

Introduction

The migration of a PDF engine presents companies with various technical and content-related challenges. But in many cases, the technical migration is not actually that difficult. What remains, however, is the uncertainty of whether the new reports (especially if hundreds of different reports with thousands of pages are generated) will still show the same content as before the migration.

How much effort is needed to avoid the risk of a PDF-engine migration having negative consequences for the customer? What needs to be done to ensure that the customer reports, such as policies or monthly and annual statements, reach the customer with correct and complete content?

Solution with OMrun

The issues surrounding PDF-engine migration are addressed by the core feature of OMrun: ensuring data quality in an automated, rule-based way in heterogeneous systems. After all, when checking such a migration, it is all about performing a rule-based comparison of "source A" and "source B" and showing the results in a clear way.

OMrun imports the data from the ("old" and "new") PDF reports, creates a data reconciliation and delivers the results from two different analyses (identical as well as erroneous content) in a report.

The system can also be configured with error tolerance, which prevents line and page movements from being flagged as errors. This process allows up to 500 A4 pages to be compared per minute.
