For the last several weeks, I have been evaluating how to move a client from their current document management system (DominoDoc) to Lotus Quickr, Filenet or some other third party product. The move is being necessitated by IBM’s end-of-life announcement for DominoDoc.
IBM provides a free migration tool for DominoDoc to Lotus Quickr for Domino, which worked as advertised and converted the DominoDoc structure to a comparable file structure in Lotus Quickr.
While custom forms are supported as attachments in Lotus Quickr, they don’t function correctly with the Lotus Quickr connectors in the Lotus 8.5 sidebar or in the Lotus Quickr connector in Windows Explorer.
If you are able to use the simple form in Lotus Quickr, the connectors are a good navigational tool into the document repository.
My conclusion is that migrating the documents from DominoDoc to Lotus Quickr via the migration tool is manageable, but take a hard look at the document types and any agents written in DominoDoc to determine the impact on your migration.
