On-line/Off-lineThe goal of Lotus Notes and Domino is to provide organizations with a flexible and COMPREHENSIVE collaboration solution. This includesA Proven, relative infrastructure built on IBM Lotus Domino. Its security-rich, highly available, and highly scalable. We have customers deploying hundreds of thousands of Lotus Notes seats. We value investment protection with simple upgrades and backwards compatibility. Plus, you have choice and flexibility in HW and SW operation systems to deploy in the environments that make the most sense to you.Collaboration in context: Context is a key differentiator for collaboration tools. Contextual collaboration allows you to access the tools and resources you need within the context of the task at hand so youre presented with the choices and information you need, when you need them. No more flipping between applications. Closing one application before opening another. Less copy & paste. Your workflow become seamless, uninterrupted. It just makes sense. And, it increases your effectiveness.The foundation of an effective collaboration solution, of course, includes e-mail, calendar and contact management. That is a given. The Lotus solution is intuitive, easy to use and feature rich. Version 8 included a major refresh to Lotus Notes UI, while keeping the familiar Lotus Notes format, to provide a modern, Web-like look & feel. Context sensitive toolbars, conversation threads and collaboration history help increase employee efficiency.Advanced collaborative capabilities include capabilities beyond email, and often included with Lotus Notes and Domino at no additional charge. They are plugged-in or integrated in context to provide you with additional tools to increase productivity and effectiveness. Such items include integrated instant messaging and presence awareness, a personal content library, productivity tools for document/spreadsheet and presentation creation, RSS feeds, and widgets to name a few. These tools help you think, and reach, outside of your inbox!Built on an open-standards based platform, Lotus Notes and Domino provides a fully extensible, rapid application development environment. Our customers have thousands of mission critical collab and business apps built on the Lotus Notes and Domino platform. Customers can also create and deploy composite applications, also called business mashups, that integrate content from multiple backend systems into a single, intuitive user interface. Universal access allows your employees to remain as productive as possible regardless of location. Rich client (Notes), browser (DWA), and mobile device (Traveler and BP solutions) client access support provides the flexibility employees need to connect wherever they are. Plus, replication support for offline access allows employees to remain productive even when disconnected.
