Migration Archiving for Lotus Notes Application Databases

Reducing the total migration scope is critical to controlling project costs and completing a migration.  Until now, the alternative to migrating databases was to throw away as many applications as possible.

Dcom is a proven low cost alternative to migrating Lotus Notes to a new platform. Dcom is simple to deploy and maintain, providing endless access to important data while reducing the time and complexity of a Lotus Notes Database migration.

Dcom provides a simple, fast and low cost way to preserve both native and web enabled Domino applications completely independent of Lotus Notes. Dcom transitions Domino applications to web based XML archives providing a platform to view the original application through any browser. With just a few clicks, a copy of the original Lotus Notes application with all the Notes documents, security levels, attachments, and document links is created.

Dcom maintains the look and feel of the Lotus Notes interface, views, documents and attachments. Your users will have immediate access to the converted Lotus Notes databases with complete familiarity, and with no training required.


Eliminate Lotus Notes Applications while maintaining access to the databases!

Architecture & Security

The data stored in Dcom is easy to access, secure, and reusable with other systems.  Dcom provides a highly scalable platform with enterprise-ready features including high availability, clustering, and load balancing.  Dcom converts all of Domino data to XML.  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 administration functions.  The Apache web server provides the delivery engine for all of the XML views, XML documents and access to the document repository.  Dcom also utilizes Javascript and JQUERY to create a dynamic user interface.

Licensing and Services

Dcom can be leveraged in one of two ways.  

  • Dcom Enterprise provides for the complete deployment in your facilities, where your administrators can manage the transition of Databases from Lotus Notes to Dcom, and support the roll out to users.
