Reasons not to move Notes apps toSharePoint Claim s hear d about why one should m ove t o Shar epoint • Shar ePoint could easily r eplace t he Rapid Applicat ion developm ent f eat ur e set of Lot us Not es • Shar ePoint is self ser vice dr iven and t her ef or e will need less developm ent r esour ces t han a new Lot us Not es envir onm ent While in r ealit y • What m ost consider t o be sim ple Not es client applicat ions of t en r equir e moderate to significant developm ent ef f or t t hat cannot be done wit h Shar ePoint Designer and r equir e Visual St udio and .Net developm ent skills • Com plex applicat ions wit h business logic and wor kf low ar e not suit able f or Shar ePoint and r equir e .Net developm ent and addit ional Micr osof t pr oduct s t o pr ovide t he sam e level of capabilit y you get in one pr oduct (Lot us Dom ino)
Reasons not to move Notes apps toSharePoint Platform Capability Lotus Notes/Domino Microsoft SharePoint Messaging Built in messaging Requires Exchange services tailored for applications. Data storage Data store is fully Data storage relies an integrated with the SQL server and platform and no unexpected additional additional cost cost must be considered Replication Ability to have fine None grained control to replicate data over distributed server environment
Reasons not to move Notes apps toSharePoint Application Lotus Notes/Domino Microsoft SharePoint Capability Securing access to Fine grained control at Very limited to no document data the doc field or section capability to hide/secure level data at this level Workflow Simple to complex Simple workflows can be workflow can be built in created in Sharepoint Designer using data, Designer. More complex security and messaging workflows require .Net services Event model XPages and Notes forms Events tied to list actions provide robust event can be added but require model C# Offline access Industry leading ability to Limited offline support take data and business logic offline securely
Recommendation Br ing your Not es client applicat ions t o t he Web wit h Xpages ● Preserves your investment in your current applications data and business logic while providing a Web 2.0 developer experience ● Provides browser and mobile access and still allows you to take that application securely offline with all application logic available using the Notes client ● Expands the reach of your Domino applications to other IBM platforms like WebSphere Portal and IBM Mashup Center thru iWidgets
