It won’t be music to IBM’s ears but two firms are working together to help companies more rapidly migrate from Lotus Domino applications to a modern cloud-based architecture.
OrangeScape, a platform as a service provider, is working with CIMtrek, a Lotus Notes migration specialist. OrangeScape will offer a solution bundle of the CIMtrek technology.
"These are exciting times and we’re delighted with this partnership with OrangeScape," said Jon Pyke, founder and CEO of CIMtrek. "CIMtrek has been committed to empowering Enterprises and helping them move away from legacy platforms such as IBM Lotus. OrangeScape is an excellent target platform on the cloud for migrating Lotus Domino Applications."
Migrating from Lotus, to Google or Microsoft, typically starts with email and calendars. However this remains incomplete and painful until Domino Applications are also addressed, the firms said. OrangeScape recently announced its Lotus Notes Migration offering, an alternative Visual PaaS platform on the cloud that provides a smooth transition for Domino Developers. This partnership further strengthens OrangeScape’s Lotus Notes migration solution by reducing the time, cost and effort for customers planning to move from Lotus Notes to a cloud infrastructure, according to the firms.
Suresh Sambandam, founder and CEO of OrangeScape, said, "Enterprise IT Leaders are actively looking to invest into strategic initiatives such as adopting Cloud/PaaS, enterprise mobility and the like. Unfortunately, the majority of their current IT budget is often tied to maintaining and supporting legacy platforms like Lotus Notes. Progressive thinking IT leaders, however, now have an option that is a double win. Not only can they migrate away from Lotus Notes, but they can also migrate to a modern platform-as-a-service technology thereby achieving double benefit."
