Comparing Notes Migrator for SharePoint with Social Migrator for SharePoint

If you are familiar with Notes Migrator for SharePoint, the following table might help you understand what Social Migrator for SharePoint does and how it is structured.  As you can see, we have made some very different design choices…


Notes Migrator for SharePoint 6.2

Social Migrator for SharePoint 1.0


Lotus Notes, QuickPlace, QuickR, Domino.doc

IBM/Lotus Connections 3.x.  Many others on the roadmap!


SharePoint 2007, 2010 (and soon 2013), including Office 365.  Also SQL Server and export to file system.

SharePoint 2010 and 2013, including Office 365.

Connections to SharePoint

Standard SharePoint Web Services or Quest Import Service

Standard SharePoint Web Services only

Standard migration jobs

All standard application templates (discussion, document library, calendar, team room, etc.)

All service/application content types (blogs, wikis, activities, communities, files, forums, etc.)

Custom migration jobs

Yes. In fact, the main focus of the tool is our ability to deal with content from ANY custom application.  Thus the dazzling array of advanced features, including custom field mapping, formulas, and document generation!

No.  We are trying to keep it streamlined and simple here.  Connections has very structured content types and we tried hard to make the best choices without users having to think about mapping options, etc.

Supports migrating rich text, attachments, images, doc links



Migrate content to SharePoint profiles

No (at least not yet)

Yes, Connections profiles map to SharePoint profiles (including photos and friends).

Licensing options

Per Notes database, or per managed user (only for larger environments).

Per managed user only.
