Enable Lotus Notes migration to SharePoint and Office 365 with no data loss
Migrate your Lotus Notes, QuickPlace/Quickr and Domino.Doc applications to SharePoint on-premises, Office 365 and hybrid environments, with high data fidelity and minimal downtime, using Migrator for Notes to SharePoint.
Reduce the risk of data loss and failed projects with Migrator for Notes to SharePoint’s detailed pre-migration analysis. Stay in command of your transition with an intuitive management console, while your complex applications migrate quickly and seamlessly.
- Scan and plan - Discover, classify and analyze the design and data complexity of Notes, QuickPlace/Quickr or Domino.Doc databases. Quickly identify unused applications that don’t need to be migrated, as well as those needing development resources. Data collected during analysis can help you automate and manage the project.
- Rules-based automation - Assign new migration jobs and target locations using a customizable rules-based engine for data collected during analysis. Use predefined rules for standard Notes applications, or define your own for custom applications. Automate hundreds of individual migration jobs, and reuse design work, to speed migration and reduce errors.
- Easy provisioning - Reducing IT burden by automatically provisioning new SharePoint sites, sub-sites, libraries and lists based on your source infrastructure. Reproduce custom Notes applications schema in SharePoint lists and libraries, for example. Provision new targets for your migrated content from scratch or reuse the custom SharePoint site and list templates you have already developed internally.
- Extreme data fidelity - Migrate Notes rich text and complex application data with no fidelity loss, giving users a smooth transition experience. Preserve all essential data, including keyword fields, embedded objects, multi-valued items, nested tables, document metadata and security attributes. Throughout the migration, you can maintain document links and HTTP links between documents by redirecting users to the current location of each document, whether or not it has been migrated to SharePoint.
- Dynamic document destinations - To best achieve business objectives, you can choose from multiple options for application migration, beyond just lists and libraries. For example:
- Migrate to SharePoint basic, wiki and content publishing pages when users need a page-oriented, intuitive experience.
- Archive documents in a practical format while preserving the original layout and content by migrating them to Word, HTML, PDF or PDF/A.
- Migrate your Notes documents to Web Part pages, InfoPath XML documents, or custom Microsoft Word templates for applications requiring custom form layouts.
- Complex app accelerator - By detecting which Notes forms are being used as content types and which applications include complex data features, Migrator for Notes to SharePoint accurately determines migration requirements. Now you can:
- Rapidly search for and report on code terms within Notes databases to help better understand the application complexity.
- Make use of native SharePoint features to migrate application content without the need for scarce and expensive development resources.
- Transform Notes form designs quickly and easily to Nintex form designs, InfoPath list forms or form libraries.
- Transform Notes views to SharePoint views quickly and easily.
- Reduce complexity by migrating Notes data to SQL Server tables.
