  • This is the world t hat we see today.Organizations have many choices even within the Microsoft stack for application platforms
  • When the decision was made to change application platforms it was likely based on many factors. Isn’t time you transformed your business? (Speaker Notes Addendum)One of those factors was probably what the new platform could achieve for your business.Why should you settle for more of the same applications and broken processes by simply migrating your legacy applications to a new platform?Application Transformation is about evolving your applications in a dynamic and scalable way using a framework and tools/services that are appropriate to your needs.A methodology is constraining. It chokes out creativity and flexibility and forces you to conform to its processes. Your business shouldn’t conform to a particular set of processes or rules. Your applications should enable your business processes. They should streamline your businesses operations. Migrating legacy applications to a new platform is more of the same. While in some instances applications work perfectly and suit your businesses needs all too often this is not the case.Application Transformation is about enhancing and evolving your applications. Isn’t it time you redefined success?Making the decision to migrate from one platform to another is never taken lightly. Getting there once the decision is made shouldn’t be either.Organizations often look to email as the critical factor in migrating from one platform to another. User productivity and reduction of administrative overhead or TCO are often sighted asthe impetus for platform migrations. While email is certainly critical it is only one component in platform change and by far not the most difficult.One thing that is often overlooked and under estimated is the impact that an application platform change will have on an organization.Customers often do not realize what they have in their application environment and do not have the tools or expertise in house to analyze these applicationsGenerate the information to make informed decisions and then execute on those decisions in a timely and cost effective manner.Consolidation and retirement of the old platform is another critical but often overlooked aspect of platform changes.As you embark on the road to platform migration have you considered the applications that your business runs on?Do these applications run within your Domino/Notes environment?Do you have a roadmap and the tools/methodology to successfully execute the platform changes you have chosen to undertake?Does your staff have the domain knowledge to successfully migrate the hurdles and challenges ahead?Do you have a trusted advisor with platform experience that can provide you with the knowledge, tools, processes and methodology to be successful?The difference between moving between application platforms and evolving your business critical applicationsWhat is your platform strategy?How can you use the new platform to your advantage?
  • Lack of insight into existing application environment – Legacy Environment, Application SprawlMaking an informed decision on the future disposition of your applications and providing a roadmap to get there.A tool can only get you so far. A service can only address some of the challenges. Finding the right mixture of expertise, tools and services to meet your organizations needs is critical to a successful platform transition.
  • The Bigger PictureBinary Tree is the leading provider of cross-platform messaging migration and coexistence software.We have the personnel, methodologies and software technology solutions to help you to successfully plan and perform successful migrations from Lotus to Microsoft Online.
  • This slide is to give an overview and review each of the BT offerings. More detail will be provided in the Appendix

    34. 34. Binary Tree Application Transformation Framework<br />Phase 1 - Analysis<br />Before a customer can decide what path to take in the transformation of their application environment a thorough understanding of the customers existing application and messaging environment is critical. A detailed analysis of existing application structure, code, security and design gives the customer a clear insight into the scope of an application transformation assisting them in the business process analysis and functional requirements gathering. This information forms the foundation for Phase 2 of the Application Transformation Framework.<br />Analyze<br />Phase 2 – Informed Decision Making<br />Using analysis reports and business process analysis gathered in Phase 1 customers can now decided which options best suit the business needs of the organization.<br />The disposition of applications can be categorized into six options or the six “R’s”.<br />Relocate, Recode, Redesign, Reinvent, Retire, Retain<br />Decide<br />Phase 3 – Transformation (Execution)<br />By providing a clear roadmap for each application using the analysis tools and methodology customers can now begin the transformation process using CMT for SharePoint's built in tools to provide custom field mapping, exported code, design and security data and the highest levels of data fidelity in the industry. Combining Binary Tree services and trusted partners can help you expedite the transformation process insuring that the decisions in Phase 2 are quickly and effectively executed on. <br />Transform<br />Phase 4 – Consolidation/Retirement<br />Once customers begin the transformation process it makes sense to begin considering the consolidation and retirement of applications and servers as the transformation process renders these applications and servers unnecessary. Some customers may choose not to transform or retire applications. In these circumstances customers can still gain significant cost savings and reduction of administrative overhead by consolidating their environment down to just a few servers and setting up coexistence with Zapp where appropriate to insure that application workflow is maintained during the life of these applications.<br />Consolidate<br />
