Public Beta for Microsoft Transporter Suite 2007 for Domino Released


There is some exciting news coming out today around tools for transitioning from Lotus to Microsoft that I thought our readers might be interested in. You can find out more about this from a post on the Exchange Server Team Blog “You had me at EHLO….” by Erik Ashby, Program Manager for Exhange.

  Today, Microsoft publicly announced its new set of tools to make the transition from Lotus to Microsoft easier.  The announcement details:



  • A new set of coexistence and migration tools (Microsoft’s Transporter Suite 2007 for Lotus Domino)
  • Role-Based Templates for SharePoint My Site: Specific application templates based on common roles like sales managers, IT engineer, etc.
  • 40 Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Application Templates: Providing a great starting point for many custom applications.

As part of this we are opening up a public beta for the Transporter Suite for Lotus Domino for anyone interested to download, trial and provide feedback. The beta program is being run through Microsoft Connect at http://connect.microsoft.com.  To access the Beta simply signup for Connect and select to apply for ‘Microsoft Transporter Public Beta’ under the programs in ‘Available Connections’.
