Application Migration

SharePoint is a robust collaborative platform that is an ideal destination for many Lotus Notes Application Databases. Rivit’s successful migration program mirrors our extensive experience and knowledge in both Microsoft SharePoint and IBM Notes.

Applications created from standard IBM templates including Team Rooms, Discussion databases, and Quickr, migrate to SharePoint applications easily. The labour required to migrate these databases is typically minor. This enables your organization to demonstrate immediate progress. There are many companies that claim they can migrate Lotus Notes to SharePoint. In truth, few can do it as efficiently as Rivit.

Rivit’s Migration is a Four-Step Process

  • Step 1. – Design Migration

    Most migration utilities claim to migrate Domino databases with relative ease. The reality is, only a few database designs migrate perfectly. Most will require design work by highly skilled developers to ensure the fidelity of the new application and data.

  • Step 2 – Data Migration

    Our “Design Analysis Process” is crucial. If Domino databases indicated that their elements render on the new platform with acceptable fidelity, then the migration will succeed. An important factor to consider during the migration, is the size of the Domino database. If it's large, heavily used, and replicates well, then data thresholds are a potential issue in target platforms. Given these issues, concessions begin to surface with respect to the final fidelity of the data on the target platform. Never-the-less, we make it work for you.

  • Step 3 – Conversion Result Analysis

    Once the data migration is complete, it’s important to perform a one-to-one comparison of Domino data with the new application.  Not all application data replicates well. Therefore, there are concessions with respect to the final fidelity of the data on the target platform.

  • Step 4 – Testing

    The final step in in the migration of a Domino database is “User Acceptance Testing”.  It is important to realize that your user’s will require time to learn how to leverage the new platform for their specific needs.
