IBM Notes client software is the premier of several client options for IBM Domino server. Together, IBM Notes and Domino deliver a reliable, security-rich messaging and collaborative environment that is designed to help companies increase employee productivity, facilitate decision making and improve overall business responsiveness.
IBM Notes software can be deployed specifically for e-mail, calendar and scheduling as well as integrated personal and team productivity tools (IBM Notes for Messaging). Or it can be deployed as a customizable desktop platform to access and run collaborative applications in addition to using messaging capabilities (IBM Notes for Collaboration)*.
IBM Notes offers robust security features that can help minimize or eliminate the impact of computer viruses. Execution control features can help keep unauthorized scripts, code and formulas from running on your workstation. Multi-tier security options allow control of access rights from the server level all the way down to an individual field on a form.
IBM Notes incorporates advanced replication technology that allows users to be productive and efficient even when they are disconnected from the network. Replication enables users to save a local copy of a Lotus Domino application and its data, and to periodically synchronize the data that has changed. Network compression and streaming replication features can help reduce the amount of data transmitted over the network, and thus help minimize use of precious bandwidth resources.
