A quick update to this original post from August... We're pleased to host our Galaxy Partner metaLogic in a joint webinar on Tuesday, September 21. metaLogic is one of the longest standing Nuxeo partners in North America, and bring many years of content management expertise to our extended network.
Bruce Grant - president of metaLogic and lead blogger at their "Rants and Raves" site, will be leading an in-depth overview of metaLogic's integration and migration tools - including a live demo of some of the functional highlights. If you are a current user Lotus Notes or Domino Doc Manager, or other legacy system that is ripe for migration, this 1 hour session would be a great way to learn about Nuxeo as a potential next generation ECM platform to consider.

One of the success stories in the Nuxeo Galaxy partner program is metaLogic - a many year veteran of content management applications with roots in the IBM/Lotus community. Earlier this year, Nuxeo and metaLogic did some joint marketing activities in support of the launch of metaLogic's "Lotus Integration and Migration Toolkit (Lotus IMT) for Nuxeo ECM".
Lotus Notes customers - particularly those on the Dom Doc platform for content applications - are thinking long and hard about their plans - stay on the Lotus platform? adopt other IBM tools? or look at alternatives?
Recently Tom Austin (Gartner VP and Fellow) blogged about this issue and also published a comprehensive research piece describing the conditions under which Lotus customers could/should consider a shift. Entitled "Migrating Off Notes/Domino E-Mail May Make Sense in Some Circumstances", this research piece is available for purchase or under a Gartner subscription. A bit of controversy is swirling, but this makes for some good and thoughtful reading and debate.
metaLogic's Lotus IMT is an important contribution to the discussion about whether an organization can meet its technology and business goals most effectively by migrating its Lotus installation fully, partially, or simply on an as needed basis.
There is no one right answer to the if/when migration debate. Cultural, business and overall corporate content management goals need to be assessed when considering the future of a Lotus Domino application. The good news? There are alternatives available today via the metaLogic Lotus IMT that address a full spectrum of application enhancements or migration requirements.
We'll be doing a joint webinar with metaLogic on this very topic on September 21 at 11am ET. In the meantime, we encourage current Lotus customers to take a look at the solution overview slide deck we've shared on SlideShare, and contact us here if you have questions about your Lotus application roadmap.
