Microsoft releases free migration tools for Notes/Domino

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...

"Every organisation considering portal technology should obtain a copy of the Enterprise Portals Research, to gain access to best-practice approaches and concepts, built up from real-world experience."

How did our 2017 predictions fare?

Like every analyst firm RSG makes annual predictions, but uniquely in the industry, we go back each year to evaluate our own prescience.

There is no such thing as a DXP

I don't know any enterprise customer that wants — or believes it remotely possible — to obtain all those services from a single vendor. No, this is a vendor fantasy, getting peddled by analyst shills.
