WTP provides components designed to support the migration through all the phases of the project from assessment to communications and adoption.
Stage 1: Pre-Migration scan and analysis of lotus notes applications
The pre-migration analysis will collect, categorize and provide understanding of the complexity and the feasibility of migrating Lotus Notes applications to SharePoint online based applications based on a set of pre-defined and relevant parameters.
Activities for scan
This will include both manual and automated activities, functional and technical categorization and analysis and will also include pre-migration assessments to inventory and assess applications for complexity and business need.
The figure below shows the various components of the discovery process, categorization and results sets.

Stage 3 – Pilot and content migration
The pilots and proof of concepts will enable the customer and Wipro to understand the constraints, technical roadblocks, possible risks and applicable mitigation step. This will be followed by full blown batch wise migration or factory migration leveraging Workplace Transformation Platform® (WTP)
Migration methods - Batch wise
Lotus Notes applications can be segregated into multiple batches. Each batch would have pre-defined timeline and effort associated with them, that results in deployments in specific schedule
Migration methods - Factory delivery
The Lotus Notes applications can be migrated asynchronously, delivering per customer’s plan. This option will add more flexibility in terms of cost optimization, reduced technical risks.
Approach: Perform migrations & deployment as and when sites are ready based on individual estimates
Advantages: Asynchronous, flexible, agile, optimized cost due to offshore leverage
Disadvantages: The number of Lotus Notes application to be migrated may be less for making a factory operate optimally
The factory-based migration model (as depicted in the image below) provides a sructured approach for the entire migration program lifecycle
