The story


Twenty years ago, The Salvation Army USA West standardized on Lotus Notes, and heavily leveraged the platform for application development. When it became clear that migrating off Notes to a modern technology was mandatory, two essential requirements emerged – a low-cost approach, and, ensure the technologies replacing Notes would not fall into the same legacy pattern, and that would require another costly migration years later.
