Domino.Doc Informal Roundtable

I participated in a discussion with other Business Partners who are working on migrating all of you running Domino.doc to Quickr, Filenet, ECM, Alfresco or Domino or anything else.

Jelan Heidelberg of IBM helped facilitate the meeting. I may have been the only BP at the table running the Lotus Quickr 8.5 latest beta, aside from Daniel Lieber and company.

Meeting some of the others brought out how international Doc is in usage, although I believe there are more Doc installations outside the US, our questions were all helpful to everyone.

One thing we asked about and will get is a specific forum for us to discuss various information with each other. Collaboration at it's best level. Competitors and partners sharing data, just the way it should be.

If you utilized Workflow in Domino.Doc or did some more advanced tuning to Domino.Doc, you may want to see how your app converts now. If you have some issues, some updates in Quickr 8.5 may help with this but that's all I can say as I am not a developer.

Daniel mentioned that Doc is really resilient, part of the reason many chose it to start, but your data is not. Although all looks good, the migration might fail due to a bad attachment. Resave the file and try again.

We are looking at a few new migration projects since January 1 and that is a great sign that customers recognize the value of their data and infrastructure of which Domino.Doc is a part.
