Seascape Flex Resolves the Problem of Incomplete IT Migrations

Why is it that legacy systems and databases, such as Lotus Notes, are kept alive for years after a company declares their transition (almost) complete? SWING Software's new Seascape Flex provides a fix for that.

Seascape Flex Archive

SWING Software has just released Seascape Flex — a new archiving and migration tool for old Lotus Notes Domino data.

Old IT systems are like old habits: both are difficult to change. Typically, a company declares that it has stopped investing in a particular platform, and their applications and data are going to be migrated by the end of the year. Two years later, remnants of the legacy infrastructure — applications, databases, and servers — are still there.

"It is not enough to offload databases and back them up. This is a common pitfall that companies fall into," says Mario Pavic, SWING Software's Head of Sales. "In the case of Lotus Notes Domino, it is not a good idea to retain historical data in the original NSF format, especially if this environment is being decommissioned."

Here's how Seascape Flex changes the way companies deal with their aged infrastructure:

  • Seascape Flex provides an archive repository, detached from Lotus Notes Domino, based on open-standard formats;
  • The organization no longer needs Notes or Domino in order to access historical data. Consequently, the number of on-premise servers can be significantly reduced, or the entire legacy infrastructure can be decommissioned;
  • Original content is fully preserved: i.e., application views, documents, layouts, links, and metadata;
  • Seascape Flex provides controlled access to archived data and advanced search capabilities for compliance, eDiscovery, or business requests;
  • Seascape Flex is a cloud-ready and scalable solution, ideal for distributed organizations and remote work.

With all historical data properly preserved in a scalable Seascape Flex archive, companies can freely decide on Lotus Notes and Domino replacement and IT modernization options.
