The existing MediaWiki of an internationally operating steel producer serves to record and communicate steel hut information. In this way a knowledge database is to be created for all employees of the steelmaker who is to support them in their work.

The challenge of the task was to transfer all contents of the MediaWiki into an Enterprise Wiki site collection within SharePoint Online. An automated process ensures that both pages, images, categories and internal links are transferred to the SharePoint libraries and data integrity is preserved.

The integrity of the data transfer ensures that all maintained content is transferred correctly and unchanged into the SharePoint data architecture and thus no information content is lost.

By using the Enterprise Wiki infrastructure, it is ensured that the standard features of the SharePoint site, which are familiar to the user, can be used. In this way, page contents are maintained via the publishing pages, images are stored in the image library, and Wiki categories are managed in the Managed Metadata Term Store.

Likewise, all content is indexed by SharePoint Search and can be found in the global company search for all authorized users.
