What a Migration Specialist Should Know



PIKA is a:

Browser-Based Application

This means that firm members can typically access PIKA from anywhere with an internet connection. When they need to use PIKA, they enter PIKA credentials into a PIKA website and are able to access all their data from there.

Universal Migrator extracts data from PIKA via:

Database Connections

PIKA uses the following database backend:


Other Notes:

Document Name Humanization

In PIKA's backend, documents often have illegible file names like "1357219.pdf". Universal Migrator will automatically humanize these names to familiar ones, like "Motion for Private Process.pdf", ensuring firm members see the same human-readable names post-migration as they do when viewing documents directly through PIKA.

The following credentials are required:

Admin PIKA Credentials

The Migration Specialist will need an Administrator username and password into PIKA in order to extract your data.

Admin Credentials into the PIKA Database Server

The Migration Specialist will need the Administrator username and password into the PIKA database server in order to extract your data.
This should be the Administrator account and not another account that has administrative access.
