Reference Architecture for Lotus Notes / Domino Migrations

Comprehensive document about migration planning for the many organisations moving off of Lotus Notes Domino … 

This document presents a difference architecture process that creates a high-level reference architecture for a Lotus Domino to Microsoft technologies migration. You can use this document as a framework/reference point to build out a solution as you consider a migration from Lotus Domino technologies to Microsoft technologies. As part of the broader Microsoft Migration Planning Process, this material is used in the third and fourth phases of the Microsoft Migration Planning Process (formerly called the Application Analysis Envisioning Process or AAEP) with a goal of providing a standard set of components, tools, and design elements to be used during the envisioning and planning processes of a Lotus Domino migration.

  1. This made me laugh out loud for two reasons:
    1. As we know, the MS “migration” is to move the mail and pursuade the customer that no-one actually uses domino, so they’re faster rewriting from Scratch in this years MS Collaboration platform – Sharepoint. I think. When is Sharepoint designer coming, or do people still have to hack things up ?
    Case in point: 70 thousand user bank in the UK. They were “successfully” migrated to Exchange v5.5 (and subsequently upgraded to 2003). Their 2003 infrastructure has been in “intensive care” for over a year (their words not mine) and have been officially told the only way they can increase stabililty to “acceptible” levels (again their words) is to upgrade to Exchange 2007, and 64-bit windows.
    That obviously is about as popular as a fart in a spacesuit…
    2. The page listed SIXTY separate operating systems – and some of those entries were generalisations. Only two on that list were actually non-micrsoft. So MS have at least 58 (and probably way more) variants of operating systems kicking around. That list in full:

    Amazing.
    Its amazing that you can download just about any Linux O/S for free from the net, in both 32 bit and 64 bit variants, and all will provide the features that the “SBS” servers will.
    So why have 58 variants on “Windows” ? Is this to justify the marketing department having more people than MS have programmers ?

  2. Bill,
    “As we know, the MS “migration” is to move the mail and pursuade the customer that no-one actually uses domino, so they’re faster rewriting from Scratch in this years MS Collaboration platform – Sharepoint.

    Please wake up Bill, we are beyong the pursuation stage with migration. The “if” question is not the main of my discussions these days; it is the “how” and the “when”. It’s not email only either (ofcourse). Yes it does take careful planning and tough decision as organisation do not want to move *all* their *legacy* over to a / any new platform. rewriting is not what this is about and neither is the availability / use of SharePoint designer …
    “Case in point: 70 thousand user bank in the UK. They were “successfully” migrated to Exchange v5.5 (and subsequently upgraded to 2003). Their 2003 infrastructure has been in “intensive care” for over a year (their words not mine) and have been officially told the only way they can increase stabililty to “acceptible” levels (again their words) is to upgrade to Exchange 2007, and 64-bit windows.”
    I simply can nnot respond to this example as I am not familiar with this case. I can tell you about a bank with 60.000 or an organsiation with 100.000 users that are very satisfied with the availability and functionality of their email platform. Anyway, it is very important to understand such a client and the context in which they made their statement(s). I am very certain that Microsoft and the business partners are able to support this organsiation to the best of their ability and that choice of Exchange version is not a goal in itsself …
    And yes what a list of OSses huh
    Windows Vista now officialy available 🙂
    My guess is that Microsoft doesn’t believe in a one fits all solution …
