SharePoint – A Partner and Customer Perspective

Gary Walsh    

Over the past decade SharePoint has gained market share and Notes/Domino has lost.  With more and more Lotus partners being forced into migration projects, more accurate information is becoming available on how the two compare.

Marten

Marten Vosmer of Lialis B.V. in the Netherlands did a session at EngageUG 2016 that described in detail his process for moving Notes/Domino applications to SharePoint.  In his presentation he offered this sound byte that I found to be an excellent high level comparison.

“With Notes you are given nothing, and you can code anything. With SharePoint you are given everything, and you can code nothing.”

Marten would be the first to agree that this is not 100% true, but it gets the point across.

For more information, read Marten’s article here.

Glenn

At IBM Connect 2016 in Orlando a fews months back I met up with Glenn Boudreaux.  He is the development manager for a firm near Spokane Washington. In a previous life he was challenged with moving Notes applications to SharePoint.  Knowing both the Domino and SQL side of things, he selected what he felt was a relatively simple application.   The net result was that it took almost a year to complete the project.  Glenn’s article is available on LinkedIn Pulse.

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 7: XPages
Thu, Apr 20th 2017 2:17p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 7 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry I’m going to discuss XPages. So, the simple question is: Does DOCOVA migrate and support XPages? Annnnd, the answer is: No. For DOCOVA’s development we pretty much stayed away from XPages for two reasons.  First, although we might have been able to leverage it on the Domino side, it wasn’t a good fit for the SQL edition of DOCOVA which caters to several different relational platforms.  Second, we n

Welcome to blog series part 6 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry I’m going to talk about three things. Security, security and security. We thought the security in Notes/Domino was pretty good.  It was clear, easy to manage and provided for a lot of variable implementation.  DOCOVA’s enhanced security capabilities were made so that it is flexible enough to support the Notes/Domino approach to security. DOCOVA application access control is handled similarly to Notes

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 5: File attachments

Welcome to blog series part 5 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry I’m going to talk about how file attachments are migrated over to DOCOVA. When it comes to the importing of data from a Notes application to a DOCOVA application, the DOCOVA App Importer initially scans and detects all file attachments in the source nsf and keeps track of what form design elements contain an attachment. As the import of form designs occurs, if a form had an attachment, not only will the

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 4: Richtext and Doclinks

Welcome to blog series part 4 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this blog entry I’ll talk about richtext and how it gets migrated over. So, first off, there is  no such thing as a “richtext” field in a browser as compared to what a richtext field is in a Notes client.  If you are running DOCOVA on a Domino platform rather than one of the other SQL database platforms, DOCOVA RT remains RT and is rendered to HTML by the server when the page/form is first loaded.  From that

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 3: @formula language
Mon, Apr 10th 2017 3:59p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 3 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this post I’m going to talk about @formula and @command language. Most Notes apps have the @formula and @command language strewn throughout them.  The @formula and @command languages were very useful in that they were an easy way to quickly accomplish simple tasks as well as tackle what were sometimes quite complex operations without being a master coder. In order to handle the conversion of @formula and @command l

Welcome to blog series part 2 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry I’m going to go over LotusScript. In part 3 of this series I’ll talk about @formula and @command language. When we began to embark on the journey of providing a killer platform and migration strategy to bring Notes applications to DOCOVA, we knew that the conversion of LotusScript was going to be an important part of it. Converting LotusScript to JavaScript and PHP is complex.  If anyone out there

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 1: What gets migrated?
Tue, Apr 4th 2017 2:11p   John Ryan
Welcome to the first installment of the Migrate Notes to DOCOVA blog series.  This is a multi-part series touching on what gets migrated when moving Notes applications to the DOCOVA collaboration platform.  It doesn’t have to be Sharepoint.  I will publish entries on a regular basis, every couple of days or so, I’m shooting for Tuesdays and Thursdays right now. You can fast-track and get all the whitepapers on our migration methodology and everything that will be discussed in thes
