In February 2009, IBM announced the withdrawal of Lotus Domino Document Manager (previously known as Domino.Doc).
As of May 12, 2009, the software will not be available for purchase; end of support will take effect on September 30, 2012.
Realizing the promise of team collaboration and content management
IBM is committed to helping you modernize your document management systems, and to helping you get more out of your document management investments. For many organizations, the additional team collaboration capabilities of Lotus Quickr complement and help expand the benefits of IBM content management.
If you had active entitlement to Lotus Domino Document Manager at the time that we announced withdrawal, you should have automatically received equal entitlement to IBM Lotus Quickr. You have the option of converting this entitlement to one of our offerings that combines Lotus Quickr with the power of IBM Enterprise Content Management, either IBM Content Manager Collaboration Edition or IBM FileNet Content Manager Collaboration Edition.
You have the flexibility to get started with Lotus Quickr now while you plan your overall migration at your own pace.
The bottom line: If you want to start using Lotus Quickr, you don't need to do anything. Your transfer of entitlement to Lotus Quickr has already been handled and processed automatically by IBM. If, on the other hand, you want to use one of the combined Lotus Quickr - ECM bundles, you need to make that decision soon and request an entitlement transfer from your IBM representative.
IBM has contracted with one of our Business Partners to provide a no-charge tool to help migrate from Lotus Domino Document Manager to Lotus Quickr. This tool is available through trained IBMers and Business Partners around the world. You'll find a list of many of those partners below, or you can contact your IBM representative for assistance in getting the tool. You will also find the redbook: Self Assessment and Strategy Guide for Migrating from Domino Document Manager extremely helpful throughout your transition process.
Customers and IBM Business Partners have been looking to IBM for a smart and cost-effective way to modernize their document management infrastructure, in order to make their content more accessible, to leverage Web 2.0 and team collaboration, and to integrate social content sharing capabilities. The migration options and choices IBM is providing to Lotus Domino Document Manager customers provides the smartest and most attractive path to the future.
Please see the Withdrawal Announcement for more detailed information about the Lotus Domino Document Manager withdrawal and entitlements.
