Efficiently Migrating Lotus Notes Applications to Modern Platforms
As businesses move into the era of highly scalable architectures, SOA, rich customer-facing applications, and mobile workforces, they are discovering that previously satisfactory workgroup and workflow systems no longer provide needed capabilities.
Lotus Notes, in particular, is quickly becoming viewed as a legacy platform that is difficult to shed as part of a move to modern, scalable, and non-proprietary architectures.
This white paper examines:
* Options for rapidly migrating off of Lotus Notes to Microsoft's .NET platform
* How organizations can better manage the transition
* A solution for migration off the complex Lotus Notes applications to Microsoft's enterprise infrastructure
First off, Lotus Notes does "highly scalable architectures, SOA, rich customer-facing applications, and mobile workforces" just fine, thank you.
But what really gets me is how moving to a "modern, scalable, non-proprietary" involves *anything* to do with Microsoft! And comparing a "complex" Lotus Notes application to Microsoft's "enterprise infrastructure" is laughable. Have you seen how many moving parts you need to build an equivalent platform in Microsoft? Look up "complex" in the dictionary, and you'll find Microsoft's logo...
Blatant sales hype and lies don't get much better than this one... :)
