After Migrating Email, What Will You Do About Domino Apps?
When moving from Lotus to a Cloud solution, the Email solution to an equivalent – such as Gmail, is obvious. The Domino applications however, which are primarily workflow and transaction driven, do not have an equivalent solution.
While many may debate that Google’s Sites, Forms and App Engine are viable options for moving Domino Apps, they are not the right alternative for Domino if you consider the type of applications that reside on Domino and how the Lotus Domino Applications are developed.
Other Available Migration Options are Flawed!
Focus on Run-time
Lotus Notes is more than Just a Run-time platform. It has a powerful Development Environment that is targeted to ease & intuitiveness. Migrating to a platform that overlooks the Citizen Development aspects is short-sighted.
Costly and Slow
Most current approaches require a lot of effort and money rebuilding the applications in environments such as Java, xPages, .Net. The automated migration is half-cooked & works only in percentages.
