  1. Now isn’t that a bit biased? A white paper from microsoft can’t really come to another solution.
    What about apps?
    Domino is a legacy software and Exchange isn’t?

    • Christian you have to take into account that this is about moving to Microsoft. In this case from an organizational point of view of the organization, Domino is the Legacy environment. As for applications, a proper review of the applications would be necessary. It is truly amazing how many organizations are maintaining Domino applications that have not been used in months or years. This disk utilization and resource consumption (i.e. backups) is staggering.

      There are aspects of Domino applications that simply cannot be replicated in another platform. Things such as workflow and agent based automation cannot be recreated programmatically and as a result you have to know if they are first used and then what they are intended to do. This takes time and effort. As a result, there are coexistence solutions available that allow Domino Based applications to continue to function without modification while now interacting with users on Exchange as a messaging platform. Binary Tree’s CMT for Coexistence with ZApp is a prime example. This solution utilizes a Zero Touch Application Remediation method that captures embedded Notes Elements within emails bound for Exchange, and keeps them on a Domino server by sending a link to the item over to Exchange. The user clicks the link and are brought to the item in Domino via the Notes Client and they have full functionality.

      During this transition time, it allows organizations to plan for a replacement for these applications or as a long term bridge for them.
