When management says you have to migrate apps off of Domino
Jamie Magee

With HCL’s acquisition of of Notes/Domino, there is a renewed investment in the platform, and it remains a superior server for most types of collaborative applications. Nonetheless, some organizations are unfortunately forcing the removal of Notes and/or Domino due to political, budget/consolidation, or other reasons. What are your options, and what are the costs and expectations of each? This session begins with analysis tools for discovering what applications are used in your environment and which designs will be most challenging to implement outside of Domino, including Panagenda, TeamStudio, Quest, and Rivit. Then you’ll survey the landscape of several options for tools and platforms to migrate your data and designs, including SharePoint & .NET, SalesForce, DOCOVA, LDC Via, Darwino, Google Apps, Structure4Notes and even some hybrid modernization techniques for migrating some elements of the Notes/Domino platform out of your organization while still using it. Differences and costs of these various approaches are compared for various types of Domino applications. This high level session does not delve into code, but includes detailed screenshots of each approach. You will be prepared for further evaluating the range of migration options for your own applications, including how to push back on management to keep certain types of applications in Domino.
