Migrating off of IBM Lotus Notes? K2 can help ease your pain
Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Are you migrating off of IBM Lotus Notes? Or did you migrate a while ago, but your business applications are still causing you trouble? Maybe Microsoft’s announcement of the end-of-life for Microsoft InfoPath has you nervous about maintaining your workflows in Microsoft SharePoint.
Whatever the motivation for your migration, K2 can help with the trickiest part of migrating off of IBM Lotus Notes: rebuilding your business applications. Unlike the email or unified communications parts of IBM Lotus Notes (or even the data underlying the business apps on it), applications themselves cannot migrate directly to a new environment. They have to be rebuilt.
Without the right tools, rebuilding your apps can be time-consuming and expensive — and can still leave you with apps that fail to meet your business needs. Using consultants can cost you anywhere from $500,000 to $1,000,000, and take 6 to 12 months to get a single application; one that is inflexible and might no longer meet the needs of your changing business. Moving app dev in-house to your IT department might not help much, either: having to support all levels of app development can take your IT department away from other critical tasks.
Join us for a webinar, Simplifying your IBM Lotus Notes Migration: what to do about your apps on Wednesday, June 17 at 10:00 am, PST. Learn how to enable your business users to quickly and easily rebuild your applications on a low-code business-application platform while leveraging your existing Microsoft investments.
Or, download K2’s new white paper, “Make the move from IBM Lotus Notes and optimize your business apps,” to see how the right business-application solution can make all the difference. You will also learn how the right business-application solution can help you quickly rebuild your applications to have greater flexibility and configurability than you had before.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see how you can leverage K2 to efficiently move from IBM Lotus Notes to a next-generation platform.

These figures are based on an analysis of companies developing mobile apps in house. Given that many consultants will use proprietary code and charge a premium on top of their costs, actual figures can be higher still in some cases.
