Move from IBM Notes / Domino to Google Apps for Work

One of Agosto’s unique strengths is that we were IBM experts before we were Google experts. With more than decades of combined IBM system administration, application development, operations, and support experience, our IBM veterans understand the unique requirements of your legacy environment. Regardless of your current IBM Notes/Domino (formerly Lotus) platform version or total number of users.

IBM Notes/Domino migrations are unique and different compared to the other platforms.  These migrations often require special consideration in a number of areas. These factors, which we discuss extensively with you during the Planning and Pilot phases, include:

Mail Coexistence/Routing

When we migrate your company’s early adopters to Google Apps, other members of your organization are still going to be on IBM Notes until we complete the migration, leaving both platforms operational for some period of time. Managing coexistence and ensuring that everyone still communicates without difficulty is paramount during this phase.

Data Migration

Our team will walk you through the options concerning the migration of mail, calendar and contact data.  Depending on how comprehensively your personnel uses mail, calendar and contacts, this phase can be one of the most time consuming, but arguably the most important.  In addition to “live” mail, our team can also migrate archives both local and server-based.

Free/Busy Time

Much like mail coexistence, availability of querying calendar Free/Busy time is a requirement we meet to smooth your transition. Users on IBM Notes and users on Google Apps will still be able to see and overlay each other’s calendars.

Directory Sync

Ensure that objects added in your on-premise directory such as users, groups, profiles, and Organizational Units (OUs) are synchronized into Google. This also allows users on both platforms access to employee contact information.

Domino Applications

Many organizations have built custom applications on IBM. As part of a migration to Google Apps, we will analyze your application portfolio and design a strategy for migrating the most commonly used applications to an alternate platform.
