Tzunami Deployer for OpenText  LiveLink® enables the migration of content from LiveLink to SharePoint products and technologies.  Tzunami Deployer for LiveLink Migration is part of the Tzunami Deployer Family of Products, which has been developed specifically to respond to all Advanced SharePoint requirements (SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013, Sharepoint 2016 and SharePoint Online).   Our SharePoint migration software allows the user to extract all LiveLink content via command on any machine with designated permissions.  Meanwhile, the user can load, deploy and migrate content to SharePoint on a separate machine.
