Microsoft releases free migration tools for Notes/Domino

  • 20-Jan-2006

In a move to try to win a bigger share in the collaboration market, Microsoft has announced a series of free tools to help customers switch from Lotus Notes/Domino to Exchange and SharePoint. Of course, collaboration and e-mail are key components in any enterprise portal implementation. Longtime Lotus Notes/Domino customers most often choose IBM WebSphere Portal, while Microsoft Exchange users naturally gravitate to Sharepoint. Migration from one platform to another is often a painful and risky undertaking. Free migration tools might ease the process, but most Notes/Domino users have serious investments in custom applications that really keep them from moving or even upgrading to anything. Even IBM is reporting that conversions to its J2EE-based Workplace collaboration platform are not happending overnight, and they expect both systems (Notes/Domino and Workplace) to co-exist for an extended period.

Our customers say...

"There is really no comparison between the level of detail and insight I find in the Real Story Group publications and other resources. Why is The Web CMS Research so good? First, Real Story Group avoids fads and takes a very measured, grounded analysis of changes going on in the web marketplace. Second, Real Story Group evaluates solutions holistically, looking at more than the software itself and considering the vendor's business viability. Third, Real Story Group can't be beat for having a conceptual grasp of what is really important in these products, and how they actually get deployed, from small implementations to enterprise scale. It's this thorough, totally grounded perspective that makes Real Story Group research an indispensable tool in my business."
