Lotus Notes

  • IBM Notes (formerly IBM Lotus Notes) is the client of a collaborative client-server platform from IBM. The application server is called IBM Domino (formerly IBM Lotus Domino). In November 2012 IBM announced it would be dropping the Lotus brand and moving forward with the IBM brand only to identify products, including Notes and Domino.
  •  IBM Notes provides collaboration functionality -- including email, calendaring, contacts management, file sharing, micro blogging, and instant messaging -- as well as access to other IBM Domino applications and databases. In versions 8.0 to 8.5.3, the office productivity suite IBM Lotus Symphony was integrated with the Notes client, but it was removed in version 9.0.
  •  IBM Notes can also be integrated with additional collaboration capabilities including voice and video conferencing, online meetings, file sharing, and microblogs though add-on products. The core IBM Notes client comes with applications for discussions, forums, blogs, and user directories. In addition to these standard applications the organization may use the IBM Domino Designer development environment and other tools to develop additional integrated applications such as request approval, workflow and document management.
