Synoverge Lotus Notes to Sharepoint Migration Framework

Any legacy modernization effort has to go through commonly identified phases before the actual migration effort begins – Understanding the current application landscape, considering solution options and the constraints the solution must meet, deciding on the best-fit solution, and choosing the right strategy for such a migration. The actual modernization process requires planning and preparation, followed by solution implementation, leading to a completed migration project.
