Lotus-to-Microsoft Migration Tool Offered

Unify Corp. is offering a product that lets companies switch their IBM Lotus Notes e-mail and collaboration applications to the Microsoft Office system.

The company's product, called Microsoft Edition of Composer for Lotus Notes, can capture both template-based and custom Lotus Notes applications, exposing them as services in a service-oriented architecture (SOA). The migrated Lotus Notes components can then be supported by Microsoft's SharePoint, Visual Studio and SQL Server solutions.

"Composer addresses one of the biggest challenges for Notes organizations today -- migrating custom Lotus Notes applications to an SOA architecture," stated Todd Wille, CEO of Unify, in a press release.

Unify's press release described the process of reassembling Lotus Notes applications using Composer.

The solution moves the Lotus Notes data into a SQL Server database and the business logic is restructured as C#-based Web services in Visual Studio. The user interface "is transformed into SharePoint Lists, Web Parts or ASP.NET applications," according to the press release. Finally, the access control list is mapped to Microsoft Active Directory Services to maintain security.

Unify's solution can accomplish this migration while "retaining the value of the Notes business logic, workflow and data," according to Wille.
