1.8 Million Notes Documents
Wed, Jun 21st 2017 10:11a   SWING Software Blog
Whenever a partner company tells us about a completed IBM Notes and Domino application archiving project, we get very curious. How did the project go? How did our product perform? Is there anything we could do to improve the export process? We are also curious about the client’s specific usage scenario. Did the client need to archive inactive data from their working applications? Or, did they want to retire legacy applications and preserve historical data, including Notes documents, views, lin

This is the third part of our series in which we are discussing differences between two SWING archiving solutions for IBM Lotus Notes/Domino: PDF Converter and Seascape for Notes. During the many years we worked to build and improve our Notes data archiving solutions, we were able to reach specific vantage points from which we could fully understand and appreciate all of the pain points associated with Lotus Notes and Domino data archiving.

This is the second part of our series in which we are discussing the differences between two SWING archiving solutions for IBM Lotus Notes/Domino: PDF Converter and Seascape for Notes. As we mentioned in our previous post, both of these solutions are designed to meet the ever-growing need for exporting Notes data to open-standard formats, whether for compliance and audit purposes, for sharing Notes data with non-Notes users, or for archiving data as part of migration and modernization efforts.

PDF Converter vs. Seascape for Notes (Part 1)

Our customers frequently ask us which of the two SWING archiving solutions for IBM Lotus Notes/Domino is better suited for their specific needs. On the face of it, both products convert Notes documents to PDF, and both products will also save all of your Notes application metadata and attachments. However, there are several subtle differences between these two solutions, and also several not-so-subtle differences. In this series of posts we shed some more light on the main points of differentiat

ALM Practices for Notes and Domino
Fri, Mar 31st 2017 9:14a   SWING Software Blog
If your organization has been using IBM Notes and Domino for ten years or longer, you’ve probably implemented many applications based on this platform. As a result, your Domino servers are likely home to dozens or hundreds of applications, all differing in their usage, complexity, value, and stage in the application lifecycle. To support ongoing modernization and migration efforts, IT professionals must take control of the entire application portfolio and implement consistent application lifec

With the end of 2016 quickly approaching, it’s the time to take a look at the past year. Here are some brief reflections on our most talked-about topics. Throughout the year, our team has focused mostly on IBM Notes and Domino application data archiving. We spent a lot of time talking with our partners and customers, and we learned about current trends and common practices across the Notes and Domino community. Many thanks to all of you who shared your comments and ideas about application

Who is going to restore our Lotus Notes data?
Mon, Nov 28th 2016 9:38a   SWING Software Blog
“It is completely unreasonable to expect that today’s existing operational environment will exist to enable access to archived data.” – Craig S. Mullins In his book Database Administration: The Complete Guide to DBA Practices and Procedures, Craig Mullins discusses database archiving for long-term data retention. The author points out what’s probably the most important consideration: the archived data must be hardware and software independent. He says, “Independence is c

How to extract Lotus Notes views and documents [Screencast]
Thu, Oct 20th 2016 4:37a   SWING Software Blog
We put together two really brief screencasts to show you how to export IBM Lotus Notes views and documents from a typical Notes application using Seascape for Notes. In the first screencast, we compare an application view in the Notes client with the same view rendered in a web browser. The demo shows that information context is preserved, including the view and document hierarchy, metadata, and file attachments. During the last couple of weeks, we have been asked many times what lies behind th

Introducing Seascape for Notes

Meet Seascape for Notes. It preserves Lotus Notes documents and views outside of IBM Notes and Domino. While helping customers export IBM Lotus Notes application data to PDF for the past seven years, we at SWING Software have come across nearly every export scenario there is. This includes the simple scenarios in which the data can be exported manually within minutes and extends all the way to the most complex ones that require extremely careful planning and execution. During these seven years,

This time, UK based AD7 Consulting selected our PDF Converter to help one of their clients (a leading software company) migrate various IBM Lotus Notes databases to Microsoft SharePoint. They needed to move over 100,000 historical Lotus Notes documents to the new document repository, with two priority requirements: First, the Lotus Notes documents h

VHS Tapes and NSF Files – Notes/Domino Application Archiving [Infographic]
Tue, Aug 23rd 2016 4:34a   SWING Software Blog
If you are responsible for IBM Notes and Domino databases, you’ve at some point probably found yourself thinking about the future of the data in this way: What if I’m asked to restore specific Notes documents that were created ten years ago? If the only archive I have access to is a backup from ten years ago, it will take me hours to dig the documents up. We all know that creating backups and archiving are two different processes. Besides the regular backup, you still need to preserve No
