About the Project

  • iManage on-premise to iManage Cloud uplift
  • Over 400,000 documents
  • Multiple containers
  • Multiple users, repository data
  • Data clean-up prior to migration
  • Blank cloud database



With efficiency and scalability in mind, Wilkes Artis made the decision to transition from their on-premise iManage DMS to the iManage Cloud. The move would allow attorneys to work smarter for their clients with increased security and accessibility while reducing their IT workload. This solution would support future growth and improvements, helping them maintain their competitive edge as the leader in real estate tax and condemnation litigation.

As an already trusted integration partner, Keno Kozie Associates was engaged to oversee the project and ensure a successful migration. Keno Kozie Associates has been providing information technology design service and support to leading law firms since 1988. The Keno Kozie team members are experts in law firm technology and provide legal IT consulting, help desk outsourcing, managed services, EDiscovery consulting, and security consulting to hundreds of law firms worldwide.


SeeUnity’s Velocity Content Migration product (Velocity) was selected as the migration tool for the project. Velocity’s comprehensive capabilities enabled the team to make changes at the time of the uplift to produce increased effectiveness of the iManage Cloud solution.

Velocity’s migration process includes validating the source system data in preparation for the move. This critical step gives a clear view of the content involved and allows for proper clean-up, re-organization, and transformation if needed, before the actual transition. Potential issues can be identified and resolved. Data delivered into the iManage Cloud environment is optimized to take full advantage of the advanced features.

Utilizing SeeUnity’s Velocity product to validate, test, and remediate issues prior to cutover greatly minimized the time and effort to go-live. The process allowed for an efficient and timely cutover where the iManage Cloud environment was prepared and ready to be up and live with no downtime. This approach also lessened the impact to users productivity and encouraged adoption of the new system.

•Save time by migrating content directly to the iManage Cloud
•Feature-rich Velocity product addresses the entire migration, reducing cost, risk, and complexity
•Cleanse data set to be target ready – identify exact source contents for clean-up and data transformation when needed
•Minimize time and effort to go-live
•Increase user adoption–improvements to content during uplift optimize iManage Cloud experience
•Minimize disruption–users are able to be productive and continue working during migration with delta syncs
