Migration of data from AppXtender to Perceptive Content

Greetings HSC Departments,

You received an email from the HSC Provost advising that the HSC Library is partnered with UNT System IT Imaging Services and Project Management Office resources to lead a migration of data from AppXtender to the Perceptive Content platform.

Who Is Impacted?

All departments across HSC that use AppXtender for digital document storage and access.

What Is the Impact?

All data currently stored and accessed in AppXtender will need to be dispositioned and any remaining documents will be migrated to Perceptive Content.

Current Action to Take

To make the transition as efficient as possible impacted areas should immediately begin taking inventory of all documents in AppXtender, disposition any that no longer need to be retained per the applicable retention policy, and identify points of contact who are most knowledgeable about the use of AppXtender by their respective departments.

To prepare for this work, the responsibility to organize the current data will fall to each department. This may include tasks such as locating all data subject to the retention policy or defining data fields.


  • What is Perceptive Content? Perceptive Content is a digital document management tool that enables comprehensive information management.
  • How will accessing my data be different in Perceptive Content? Desktop client or web access is available.
  • When will my data be migrated? This will depend on how soon your team can achieve a ready state to begin working with the project delivery team. This is accomplished by successfully dispositioning any documents that have met or exceeded retention requirements, and documents that do not require migration.

Next Steps

The library has contacted each department that we identified as holding records in AppX. We are in the process of dispositioning documents. If you have not been contacted, but you have records in AppX, please email RecMgmt@unthsc.edu.

Additional Questions?

  • Technical questions about the migration should be addressed to Tracy Hansen, System IT Imaging Services
  • Records retention inquiries should be directed to Ramona Holmes, HSC Library.

Thank you for your collaboration and support in making our business processes more efficient and reliable.
