Enable Lotus Notes migration to SharePoint and Office 365 with no data loss
Quickly and easily migrate Lotus Notes, QuickPlace/Quickr and Domino.Doc applications to SharePoint 2007/2010.
Migrate your Lotus Notes, QuickPlace/Quickr and Domino.Doc applications to SharePoint on-premises, online and hybrid environments, with high data fidelity and minimal downtime, using Notes Migrator for SharePoint.
Reduce the risk of data loss and failed projects with Notes Migrator’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 & 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.
- Migrate to Microsoft Word, HTML or PDF documents to archive content in a practical format.
- 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, Notes Migrator accurately determines migration requirements. Now you can:
- Migrate Notes schemas to custom content or list types.
- By using native SharePoint features to migrate complex application content, including approval status, versioning and in-process workflow state, you can minimize costly development.
- Move Notes form designs to InfoPath list forms or form libraries, and Notes views to SharePoint views.
- Reduce complexity by migrating Notes data to SQL Server tables.
Before installing Notes Migrator for SharePoint, ensure your system meets the following minimum hardware and software requirements:
- At least 1 GB of RAM is recommended for running migration jobs and doing small analysis projects. For large analysis projects or bulk migrations involving over hundreds of databases, we recommend 4 GB of RAM.
- NMSP Clients are 32bit applications and are supported in both x86 or x64 environments.
- Windows Identity Foundation is required on the NMSP Client for the Office 365 Authentication environment type. Windows Identity Foundation is not supported on Windows XP.
- Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 2008, Windows 2008 R2, or Windows 2012
- Lotus Notes 6.x to 8.x
- Both .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.0 are required
- Notes Migrator for SharePoint Console is a MMC Snap-in so Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0 is required to run the Console. This is part of Vista and is now included in recent Windows Service packs, but if need it you can download it here: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=907265.
- The Notes Migrator for SharePoint Console requires that the free Microsoft ReportViewer 2008 be installed in order to display and export reports. If this component is not installed, the Discovery, Analysis and Migration reporting options will be not enabled. The ReportViewer may be downloaded from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=6AE0AA19-3E6C-474C-9D57-05B2347456B1&displaylang=en
- For creating custom report templates (RDLC files), you need a third party report designer. Microsoft's Visual Studio 2005 Report Designer is currently the only report designer supported as the RDLC editor. The Express versions are not supported however. For more information about this report designer and how to build reports using it, please refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms157166.aspx
- The NMSP Console uses a local Notes database as its Repository in order to store data that is gathered through analysis and user input. The Setup Wizard that is run after the Console is installed will create this database for you.
- For large discovery and analysis projects involving hundreds of databases, we strongly recommend more memory than the minimum described above. Having 4 GB or more of RAM available is desirable for this type of project.
