Lotus Notes Appli­cation Migra­tion

We move your legacy Lotus Notes applications to modern web-based solutions.

You will profit from our experience from a number of already performed Lotus Notes migrations of the following kind:

  • Standard applications that are standard Lotus Notes templates and have been customized
  • Custom applications that have custom data schemas with different views, forms, or logic including workflows, business and application logic

The first step in an application and data migration is to evaluate which application should be moved to a new platform. Applications usually grow over time organically and become complex with workflows and interfaces. Migration to a new platform represents an opportunity for the company to refactor complex applications into a set of modules that better serve their purpose. It is important that these dimensions are investigated in the application and data migration. In order to assess usage of Notes applications, it is important to look at both the frequency of update of an application’s data as well as the number of users that are using the application.

The application migration should justify an appropriate return on investment.


The actual migration to a web-based application with a relational database and SOA architecture is done with our new Framework (with RIA-Frontend, .NET core, RDBMS) that enables us to model and configure rather than code and therefore reduce time required to rebuild complex Lotus Notes applications.

  • Identify existing Notes databases and select (workflow) databases to migrate
  • Export database content into a common XML format
  • Export code for further analysis for custom applications
  • Import xml workflow/process models into our framework
  • Adjust process model and workflows
  • Import data into process model
  • Verify import and test the application
