The attached project template has been created to assist IT Project Managers tasked with planning, preparing their environment for, and executing a Proof of Concept for IBM LotusLive Notes Hybrid. It assumes the Proof of Concept includes transition of a limited number of existing on-premises Notes users and their data into the LotusLive Notes service.
The set of tasks is not intended to be comprehensive; rather this is a set of tasks that are typically considered and expected while planning a Lotus Notes cloud transformation project.
The individual tasks in this template can have a wide variance in elapsed time from one IT environment to the next. A great deal depends on local circumstances such as availability of staff for the project, availability of servers for the project, willingness of end users to participate, and how recently Domino Server and Notes clients have been upgraded. This timeline identifies predecessor task relationships, but does not estimate elapsed time or resources required for each task. Where IBM has observed a great deal of variability in execution, that has been noted.
The IBM Software Services for Lotus team hopes you will find this helpful in planning your IBM LotusLive Notes Proof of Concept.
