Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5 for Domino delivers a new user experience that makes it easy to get started and is powerful enough to support the advanced document sharing features you need. More efficient management of team and company content reduces time searching for the right information and helps users make better decisions faster. Performance improvements provide a responsive end-user experience and are designed to reduce the total cost of ownership.

The streamlined user experience in Lotus Quickr 8.5 for Domino reduces the number of mouse clicks required for the most commonly used actions. The modern visual design is clean and easy to use. A new rich text editor is available for browser-based creation of content. The same text editor and visual design is used across IBM products, such as IBM Lotus Connections, giving end users a common experience.

Lotus Quickr 8.5 for Domino integrates with Enterprise Content Management (ECM) repositories. New ECM integration capabilities are:

  • Custom defined mandatory metadata entry, through the Web interface and via Lotus Quickr Connectors
  • Direct connection with ECM repositories that allows native display and editing of ECM content directly from the Lotus Quickr Web interface
  • Parametric search of ECM content

Adding features you requested makes Lotus Quickr 8.5 for Domino a competitive and compelling solution for managing business content. Some of the new features included in Quickr 8.5 for Domino are:

  • Easy document check-in, check-out, and versioning from the Web interface and Lotus Quickr Connectors
  • A recycle bin for soft delete capability, which maintains document security
  • Round trip editing in all browsers, not just Internet Explorer
  • Team calendar overlays to your personal calendar in Lotus Notes® or Microsoft® Outlook
  • Folder level access control making it easy to secure or share content appropriately
  • Intuitive lists function to organize data sets and to provide an easy way to visualize, edit, and analyze tabular data
  • Representational State Transfer (REST) services for page and document uploads and expansion of Web service APIs that provide additional extensibility and customization

Additional enhancements make managing Quickr 8.5 for Domino easier:

  • Easier to manage with new and easier to use administrative control, reporting, and deployment options.
  • Easy to upgrade with support for direct upgrade from Quickr 8.2 to Quickr 8.5 for Domino.
  • Expanded and stored system usage statistics that allow trend analysis and easier optimization.
  • Multilingual Lotus Quickr servers that are supported for organizations who use different languages. You no longer need to deploy multiple Lotus Quickr servers to support more than one language.
  • Supports Windows® single sign-on so end users can leverage their Windows logon for the Lotus Quickr browser UI and Lotus Quickr Connectors.
  • Linux® server support provides more choice of operating systems.

All of these improvements plus increased scalability and performance are designed to reduce the overall total cost of ownership of Lotus Quickr 8.5 for Domino.

The updated Lotus Quickr Connectors included with Quickr 8.5 for Domino are backwards compatible with earlier versions of Lotus Quickr, allowing your users to leverage the improvements in the Quickr Connectors prior to your server upgrade to Quickr 8.5 for Domino.

Charge metrics definitions

Authorized User

Authorized User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. An Authorized User is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed on one or more computers or servers and accessed by the number of users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each Authorized User accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Install

Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each install of the program.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage sub-capacity licensing terms (refer to the Web page below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies. Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
  • Express and Workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies. The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM Express and Middleware Programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
