Application Categorization

 

Topic Last Modified: 2006-09-14

Microsoft® Application Analyzer 2006 for Lotus Domino categories Lotus Domino applications into four different quadrants, based on whether the application was created from a default Lotus Domino template and whether the application is data-centric or process-centric (incorporates workflow). This categorization helps in developing a coexistence and migration plan.

Template-based applications are created from the default Lotus Domino templates that ship with Lotus Domino.

 

Data-centric applications focus primarily on collecting and sharing simple data.

Application Framework (Quadrants)

Process-centric applications incorporate workflow.

Custom applications are based on the default Lotus Domino templates that have been modified to contain additional data or applications that were created from a blank template.

When an application is created from a standard Lotus Domino template and is not modified, it is possible to know the application fields, field types, and the application’s purpose, and then map this information to Windows® SharePoint® Services templates. Any application that is created from a standard Lotus Domino template and is not modified is, therefore, a prime candidate for migration using Microsoft Data Migrator 2006 for Lotus Domino.

Lotus Domino ships with many default templates, most of which are used for administering the Lotus Domino servers and the Lotus Domino infrastructure. Generally, databases created from these administrative templates are not considered appropriate for migration because this information is not useful outside of a Lotus Notes/Domino context.

Lotus Domino Templates

Custom applications that don't map directly to Windows SharePoint Services templates can be migrated to the Microsoft Collaboration Platform by doing either of the following:

  • Migrating the data.

  • Implementing functionality such as Web services to integrate the data.

Quadrant descriptions and solutions

Quadrant Quadrant Criteria Examples Possible Solution

Quadrant 1

Data-centric

Template-based

Discussion template

Use Microsoft Data Migrator 2006 for Lotus Domino to migrate data to associated Windows SharePoint Services template.

Quadrant 2

Process-centric

Template-based

Document Library templates (Microsoft Office, SmartSuite), Team Room template

Use Microsoft Data Migrator 2006 for Lotus Domino to migrate data to associated Windows SharePoint Services template.

If workflow functionality is required, implement third party workflow solutions.

Quadrant 3

Data-centric

Custom or modified template

Applications based on default Lotus Domino templates that contain additional data that needs to be migrated, or custom applications that were created from a blank template. These applications do not implement workflow.

Migrate or integrate data using tools or integrate data using functionality detailed at MSDomino or GotDotNet. Create a Microsoft application that provides similar logic and functionality or further review by a Microsoft Partner to create a Microsoft application that provides additional logic and functionality.

Quadrant 4

Process-centric

Custom or modified template

Applications based on default Lotus Domino templates that contain additional data that needs to be migrated, or custom applications that were created from a blank template. These applications implement workflow.

Migrate or integrate data using functionality detailed at MSDomino or GotDotNet. Create a Microsoft application that provides similar logic and functionality. Further review to create a Microsoft application that provides additional logic and functionality.
