Finally, someone building tools to migrate *TO* Notes *FROM* Sharepoint!
From InformationWeek: The Weekly Watch On Content Management
Well, isn't *this* a pleasant change!
Here's one from the "I'm not sure if I can beat 'em" file. Mainsoft, an IBM partner, will soon release its SharePoint Integrator for Lotus Notes.
According to a company spokesperson, the software gives users point-and-click access to SharePoint content, including Word documents, Excel worksheets, and PowerPoint presentations, all from a Notes-driven sidebar. Mainsoft says Notes users also can store updated documents within SharePoint sites. And I got a kick out of the PR firm's pitch, if for nothing more than its attempt to balance things a bit delicately.
"For enterprise IT, replacing multimillion dollar Lotus Notes/Domino infrastructures with a Microsoft stack is a highly political, costly project. Migrating from SharePoint to Quickr is one option, though SharePoint fans oppose it."
Wouldn't it be fun to get our hands on this and see if it's better than Red Bull at going the other direction? :)
