What is the context of "Lotus Notes has lagged since Ray left"?

Frank Black

yawn... I see you missed the part of Lotusphere where they announced a 30% increase in Notes and Domino sales last year. I guess that these didn't include the "many Notes/Domino customers wanting to migrate to Exchange/Sharepoint". I guess that there was also some reason thhat all those customers didn't jump at the chance to use "Red Bull" to migrate - oh yeah, it didn't actually work!

Hi Don,
We worked together at Bowstreet. I am working for Proposion Software (now Quest Software since it was acquired in Oct 2007). The migration tools you were speaking of were created by Proposion licensed to MS. Check out our lastest Migration tools available (http://www.quest.com/migration) and contact me with quesitons/feedback! michelle.walent@quest.com

Lotus Notes To SharePoint Migration

To select the Tool for Lotus To MOSS migration needs to evaluate the complexity of Notes applications. One early method describes a quadrant system with one axis indicating the level of customization and the other axis indicating the level of processing and logic.
Notes and Domino applications is segmented into five levels of complexity and identified best practices for addressing each category. These categories are designed to reflect practical matter of how much effort will be required to migrate the applications
1)Standard applications
2)Data-centric applications,
3)Configuration-required applications
4)Medium-development applications
5)Heavy-development applications
