Solution Configuration

  • Dcom is comprised of a Notes Database Extractor and Archive Repository.
  • The Dcom Extractor replicates both simple and complex Lotus Notes application views in XML, while rendering all documents to pdf/pdf-A, and maintaining all of the original attachments.
  • Converted Applications are moved to the Dcom Archive where the archived databases can be securely stored and instantly accessed.

Fast and Comprehensive Archive Process

  • Archiving databases is simple and fast with Dcom. Simply pick the database you want to archive, choose the views you want to export, and hit the start button. In minutes, the processed database is loaded into the Dcom Archive for complete and secure access and discovery.
  • During the database conversion process, all of the original attachments, doc links and security controls (ACL’s) are replicated to the new archived database, maintaining all pre-existing security and access parameters to the databases and documents.

Intuitive End User Experience

  • The look and feel of the archived database mirror’s the familiar Lotus Notes interface of views, documents, preview pane, rich text and embedded attachments so your users can start accessing the archive databases without training.
  • End users can add or remove databases to their “favorites” short-list of databases from the full library of archived databases they had previous access to in Notes.
  • Dcom also integrates with Outlook where users have the option to access archived mail or applications directly from their mail client instead of archive repository.

Compliance and Discovery

  • During the archive process, all Notes documents are converted to PDF/PDFA format, preserving the original data in the industry standard.
  • All Dcom archives are indexed in the Dcom viewer and provide full filtering and discovery capabilities within the database, or across multiple databases.

Information Security

  • Dcom preserves the original Notes Access Control and Author Reader Access Control settings during the archival process to provide continued database and document-level security.
  • Dcom also imports the complete Notes Address Book, integrates with Active Directory, and supports Single Sign-on using SAML or OAUTH.


  • Dcom is secure and highly scalable with enterprise-ready features including high availability, clustering, and load balancing.
  • SQL is used to maintain all page indexes, user and group information, and access control information.
  • The PHP layer is used to manage authentication and application authorization and provides all session management and administrative functions.
  • The Apache web server provides the delivery engine for the XML views, XML documents and access to the document repository.
