Lotus Notes Design & Development
We design and develop effective IBM Notes (formerly known as Lotus Notes) applications for efficient workflow management. The software runs on the IBM Domino (formerly known as IBM Lotus Domino) platform which provides a scalable, cost-effective and enhanced security base to create social business applications that help improve organisational efficiency. Notes is primarily a client-side email application that can be integrated with various Domino based social business workflow capabilities. The Notes software, which uses the JavaServer Faces (JSF) specification, also supports third party applications and software which allows us to devise customised plugins, add-ins or widgets on third party client architecture.
The IBM Domino platform has a primary focus on integration of various aspects of operational workflow such as emails, messages, calendars, contacts, discussion databases and team rooms. We utilise this functionality to develop appropriate solutions that meet client needs. We organise all our solutions to be interoperable and scalable over time across diverse teams and geographies. We integrate the Notes application with the Domino platform to build solutions that address root operational issues and create a functioning environment of shared workspace and unified project operation.
We have extensive technical expertise in both software, and this allows us to fashion custom user interfaces for specific web-based application. We use IBM’s proprietary XPages application development technology to display applications on either Domino or third party clients. XPages utilises the standard XML coding which is filtered through Domino servers or Notes clients and displayed over a web browser or a Notes client. The use of XPages has allowed us to radically decrease the time to conceive and turnaround new applications for both web and mobile environment implementation. We also use Lotus Script as well as other programming languages to build applications for Notes.
The Domino platform is designed to be the de-facto platform for social business. IBM has provided the application with various enabling features such as a rich application environment, minimal infrastructure requirement, and enhanced security enablement, among others, besides facilitating a low cost of ownership. These features make it ideal for customisation and compliance with the diverse needs of our clients. We use the platform’s ability to operate with variety of hardware architecture and operating systems to integrate the software with client-side legacy infrastructure. This ensures that clients receive solutions that are cost-effective yet efficient. We also provide instant messaging services using the IBM Sametime (formerly Lotus Sametime) software communications and collaboration platform.
We have developed diverse applications on Notes and Domino platforms across multiple markets and industries. Our expertise in IBM’s technology has allowed us to create customised solutions that have allowed clients to increase their operational efficiency. Our solutions can be used by users to access any shared operational workspace environment from libraries to discussion forums. We also configure the standard Notes application to run any other applications whether built by us or already operated by our client. The enhanced security of the Domino platform also allows us to formulate solutions that effortlessly surpass the most stringent security provisions specified by our clients.
