If your company composes email messages where there are more people in the address list than there is text in the message...you might be an IBM Domino candidate.
If your company has business processes where you can not afford to miss a key step along that process...you might be an IBM Domino candidate.
Why IBM Domino?
IBM offers an amazing amount of functionality packaged into one server:
- Messaging, Calendaring and Scheduling - access your eMail using the Notes client software, a web browser or from a mobile device
- A complete web server
- Workflow, Groupware and Collaborative applications
- Templates that allow you to immediately begin using the robust functionality of Domino
- The ability to integrate with other data sources and technologies
- Standards based...really!
Domino provides you with tremendous development options. Your company may not need to roll-out the IBM Notes client to everyone's desktop. IBM has focused heavily on providing the rich functionality of the Domino server to the web via browsers. In fact many companies choose to use Domino as their web server and not even roll-out the Notes client to the enterprise desktop machines. The company can rollout the iNotes web mail client or IBM Verse, the new most robust web mail application today. In addition they can use templates to build applications that provide discussion databases to facilitate knowledge management and collaboration. Applications built with the IBM Notes standard templates are of course generic but highly valuable and many companies do not have a need to customize these application beyond their vanilla design. For more specific, customized and high-powered applications, Domino provides a rich integrated development environment (IDE) that allows developers to take advantage of the most modern programming techniques like HTML, Java, CSS, XML, XPages and more. Web applications can be developed using Domino much more rapidly than with conventional means because you have everything you need in one Domino server. The Domino server is your database, your web server, your graphical user interface, your middleware, your Java servlet engine, everything! Of course, very high-end applications may require a more complicated architecture incorporating a relational database server such as an SQL or IBM DB2 Server, but there are many opportunities to utilize the Power of Domino to create real world business solutions.
