Migration Archiving for Lotus Notes Application & Mail Databases

The Dcom Solution

The reduction in project scope and effort is critical to a cost-effective migration. Until the introduction of Dcom, the only alternative to migrating applications was eliminating them completely. Dcom is a low-cost archive solution that preserves the fidelity and long-term accessibility of legacy IBM Notes & Domino data completely free of the original platform. To summarize, Dcom extracts Lotus Notes data from IBM Notes and stores it in Dcom.  As a result, your authorized users will securely access important legacy data with complete familiarity.
