Sonoco, an internationally operating package solution company, approached Lialis to assist in the Lotus Notes decommissioning because of our domain knowledge and methodology. After a detailed scan and analysis of the 16 Domino servers with our Domino server database scanner we assigned targets (Close – Archive – Replace). These targets were verified with the Sonoco databases owners and adjusted were needed. Thanks to this analysis we ware able to quickly close the majority of Notes databases with one mouse click using our Notes ACL close tool. 200 IBM Notes databases were archived to SharePoint Online with our Notes database archive solution keeping the original Notes structure. Eventually, 12 complex IBM Notes business applications remained. These were rebuilt on SharePoint Online using Shareflex after finetuning the design with the business users. Being able to guide Sonoco through the entire journey from analysis to a complete shut down of their Domino infra was challenging but extremely satisfying.
Yara, the global crop nutrition company, had a very scattered and diverse Domino estate consisting of a few thousand Notes databases. Their ultimate goal was to get rid of their Domino infra and conduct an end to end IBM Notes migration project. However, they had trouble identifying database usage and owners. We worked with Yara to break down the project in small steps and quick wins. Firstly we started scanning the environment using our Notes Domino scanner and analyzed the result. We gave Yara a clear insight in what Notes data was really important for the business. Subsequently, we assisted them in closing down unused databases and archiving data in read-only format to SharePoint Online with our Notes database archive solution. Finally we assisted the Yara project team with moving a number of active IBM Notes databases to alternative platforms. The multi-year project achieved its end objective; Domino no longer exisits in Yara.
