AUSTIN, TX – January 5, 2022 – M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced the launch of M-Files Smart Migration, an intelligence service which combines M-Files’ leading information management expertise with metadata-driven automation to help customers migrate information into the M-Files platform more intelligently and cost-effectively.
Moving to the cloud continues to be a top priority, but content migration can often be a challenging and costly task for businesses.

M-Files Smart Migration can be used with other M-Files intelligence services, enabling customers to seamlessly:
- Migrate unmanaged and promoted content into the M-Files vault
- Classify unmanaged documents during the migration with M-Files Smart Classifier
- Extract critical information from documents and automatically add metadata to the migrated content with M-Files Smart Metadata
- Create reports and detailed overviews of the content that was analyzed and migrated in an easy-to-use format
“Companies are accelerating their move to the cloud to modernize how they do business and adapt to new hybrid work environments,” said Mike Asebrook, vice president, product marketing, M-Files. “However, content migration can be a daunting and expensive task. The goal of our new Smart Migration service is to make the process as fast, cost-effective, and intuitive as possible by leveraging our leading metadata-driven services to intelligently migrate information from legacy systems and external repositories into the M-Files platform. By automatically adding intelligence to documents during the migration process, our customers can trigger workflows and manage data governance effectively, while empowering collaboration and accelerating their digital transformation journeys.”
