Introducing the Notes to #SharePoint Migration "Appceleration" Service

We speak with customers and partners involved in Notes to SharePoint migrations almost daily. One common challenge we see across all projects is that organizations that focus on migrating the most complex Notes applications first often struggle to get the project started. The majority of standard databases and applications are simple and easy to move with the right resources, but are left untouched while rationalization of complex applications delays the project.

Does this sound familiar?

In addition, users will often delay SharePoint adoption until their existing content has been migrated. But as the heavenly voice from the "Field of Dreams" movie might say, "Move their content to SharePoint and they will come." This enables users to become productive in the new SharePoint environment before the project is completed.

Quest new Appceleration Service helps jump start your migration by transitioning standard Notes application templates such as discussions, document libraries, team rooms, etc., to SharePoint quickly and affordably. The Appceleration Service comes at a fixed price per database, enabling you to better plan your budget and also eliminate excessive estimates that can quickly stall a project. 

The migration service is performed remotely by a team of experts using Notes Migrator for SharePoint to migrate IBM Notes, QuickPlace/Quickr and Domino.Doc applications to SharePoint 2010/2013, Office 365® and other hosted SharePoint environments, with high data fidelity, minimal downtime and fewer development resources than you thought possible. Quest Quick Apps for SharePoint Starter Edition is also included at no extra charge to enable the rapid rebuilding of standard Notes applications that are user-friendly, code-free and easily supported, maintained and upgraded to ensure their long-term impact and return on investment.

Benefits include:

  • Jumpstart stalled migration projects with a cost-effective, fixed-price solution to accelerate the migration phase
  • Mitigate your risk by letting our migration experts migrate standard applications without data loss
  • Archive simple custom applications into PDF / A documents and onto SharePoint or a file system
  • Retain Notes’ traditional functionality and look and feel using Dell Quick Apps for SharePoint web parts (no custom code!!)
  • Increase SharePoint adoption by enabling users to immediately use their applications in the new environment
