A manufacturing multinational rapidly modernizes it Lotus Notes apps


About the customer

The customer focuses on designing, producing, and selling components, integrated systems,
and modules for the automotive industry. The customer partners with all automakers worldwide and has a revenue of €15 billion+.


The customer, like many other manufacturers, had been struggling to automate non-standard and dynamic business processes.  These business processes were not out of-the-box solutions but hard-coded and challenging to change in their Lotus Notes applications. There was also a strong business need to facilitate the knowledge workers and their dynamic business processes, with workflow-oriented applications. The applications were required to be responsive, available anywhere anytime, running on the latest tablet and smartphone models.


Together with Vanenburg, the customer designed an approach for flexible workflow apps in the cloud on top of their enterprise core systems. Vanenburg was chosen as a worldwide partner to develop these web-based workflow apps on Google Cloud, which are integrated into their on‐premise back-end systems.

Vanenburg used its productivity improvement framework to accelerate the development of these advanced applications. This also included back-end and front-end optimizations to scale for a high number of transactions and users.

As part of this project the customer successfully phased out its 1,000+ Lotus Notes applications along with 250 Notes servers and smoothly transitioned to 1,000+ cloud-based solutions, while decommissioning/reassigning 150 servers.
