Asset Conversion Inspector
Indellient’s Asset Conversion Inspector (ACI) is a software solution which assesses the suitability of IBM Lotus Symphony as a replacement for MS-Office software for a specific customer. Based upon content examined in the client’s environment, the Asset Conversion Inspector constructs a view of the application requirements of the user community for MS-Word, MS-Excel, and MS-PowerPoint, and identifies potential IBM Lotus Symphony adoption challenges.
Clients may choose to send data files created by the Asset Conversion Inspector to Indellient for more detailed analysis and reporting by Indellient’s team of conversion experts. The report outlines specific challenges that will be experienced during migration, coexistence with Microsoft Office usage (short and long term), and steady state IBM Lotus Symphony adoption. The report includes step by step instructions for users to restore full functionality to converted documents in cases where there are minor migration issues. This deliverable can be used as a basis for the software replacement decision, including support of a business plan based upon objective, indisputable facts. Indellient Inc. will also provide a sample migration plan that can be utilized should the replacement decision be finalized.
