By Global Cents
GCI Power Tools for Deployments enables the ready transport of entire object structures from one OpenText Content Server environment into another. It's highly automated process minimizes manual interactions while speeding deployment time and reducing risk of human error.
The process of transporting content and data between OpenText Content Server environments can be painfully slow and fraught with error. Standard migration tools often require hours of highly skilled labor to recreate taxonomies and reconfigure categories, forms, WebReports and workflow maps.
PowerTools for Deployments automates the deployment process employing referential integrity to ensure that object and user references are updated following import into the target system. For example, if a category has not been created at the time an object that uses that category is created, the category is first created and re-linked. Similarly, workflow maps are updated to re-link all forms, categories, objects and attachments.

It can also be used to move applications between different releases of Content Server.
