Prior argus experience
Prior Argus Experience

Single CMS shared by all Departments

for about a decade - YPM staff cohabiting

internally and realizing commonalities

- streamlined system administration

- ease strain of future migration path

EMu Users Groupa.k.a. Weekly Therapy- started meetings at go-live- topic du jour as a kick off- then open season on issues - driven by users' experiences


Some miscellaneous statistics
Some Miscellaneous Statistics remain a bit fuzzy…

  • 1,200,000 Argus records => 2,100,000 EMu records

  • 3 days for Argus server to spit out the final migration files

  • 12 days for EMu server to ingest the final migration files

  • held a final migration “race” between the KE & YPM servers

  • lost few weeks to Vancouver server hiccups, office move, etc.
