IRVING, TX – September 24, 2015 – Daegis Inc. (NASDAQ: DAEG), a global enterprise software company with comprehensive offerings for information governance, application migration, data management and application development, today announced a strategic partnership with Toronto-based Rivit Technology Partners, who specialize in Lotus Notes platform migrations. Through this partnership, Rivit will offer customers Daegis’ Composer Technologies migration software and services for Lotus Notes Applications.
The combined Daegis and Rivit offering will minimize disruption for both businesses and end users by providing expert services utilizing Daegis’ proven technology. Complex Lotus Notes applications are migrated to Microsoft .Net and can then be deployed to both on-premises or to hosted environments such as Microsoft Azure. A significant number of companies globally are still using Lotus Notes, and together both Daegis and Rivit are now well positioned to jointly pursue this large migration opportunity.
“When companies make the decision to migrate from Lotus Notes to another platform, they typically run into the same common problem of being unable to migrate custom, complex applications,” said Tim Bacci, CEO of Daegis Inc. “Combining Composer Notes strengths in migrating complex and custom applications to .NET with Rivit’s services and expertise in Lotus Notes makes for an ideal partnership for both parties leveraging combined synergies that ultimately bring value to the customers.”
Rivit’s CEO, Rob Salerno, is excited about adding Daegis’ unique solution. “ Lotus Notes Migrations are complex projects. Most of the organizations that reach out to us are struggling with the migration of complex Lotus Notes Applications. With Composer, we are in a position to complete the migration of these complex applications by converting them to .NET, and presenting them in SharePoint. Staying within the Microsoft stack is the perfect scenario for clients looking to complete a migration quickly and cost effectively.”
Composer Notes allows organizations to automate the migration of Lotus Notes applications to the Microsoft .NET environment without the cost or risk in application rewrites or replacement efforts. Composer Notes automatically converts and compiles complex Lotus Notes applications while preserving the business logic and User Interface, which in turn minimizes disruption for end users.
