Introduced in 2009, Google Apps Migration for IBM Notes (GAMLN) is designed to simplify moving contacts, mail and calendar from IBM Notes to Google Apps. The migration process is unattended allowing you to focus on other operational tasks. In addition, it requires no downtime, which means users can access Notes during the migration process. Multiple departments or offices can be migrated separately or simultaneously. The tool also allows centralized monitoring and management of migration event logs. Once the process is complete, the enterprise mail client opens Notes links in IBM Notes.
Migrating from IBM Notes is a delicate affair for many businesses since the tool supports wide-ranging operational processes. It incorporates an application development tool, which automates workflows within the suite. Fortunately, GAMIN can move even the most complex Notes environments to Google Apps. Since GAMIN's inception, many companies have migrated thousands of employees quickly and easily.
At some point, Lotus Notes was one of the most innovative collaboration and mail platforms available to businesses. The enterprise solution allowed companies to communicate on a global scale with ease. However, the situation has changed with the introduction of cloud-based solutions.
Once you fully decommission Notes, G Suite Business provides an effective way to quickly build device-independent cloud workflows. It becomes possible for your organization to replace Notes-based applications and enjoy greater flexibility. This unshackles your staff or team from the constraints of traditional office PCs by enabling collaboration from anywhere.
The free software to migrate from Lotus Notes to G Suite Business comes with a number of well-designed features aimed at ensuring a smooth migration. The range of features include:
