Overview

IBM® XWork Server 8.5.3 is a competitively priced offering that leverages IBM XPages technology. It allows an application developer to quickly and easily create rich web applications with a Web 2.0 application look and feel. With XWork Server, business partners and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) get a low cost rapid application development platform that provides:

  • A tailored solution that rapidly delivers business objectives
  • Access to collaborative and social solutions via web and mobile
  • Good looking collaborative and social applications with a rich user experience
  • Solutions based on a proven technology
  • Solutions with built-in enterprise grade security
  • Solutions at a lower cost

IBM XWork Server delivers an attractive pricing and packaging approach for XPages technology via a lower, fixed term license cost. This offering is designed for ISVs and business partners who need a well priced and easy-to-sell XPages based offering that highlights their cutting edge skills and allows them to quickly develop and deliver off the shelf or custom web and mobile solutions to new and existing customers.

Leveraging IBM XWork XPages Application Server for your social applications will help you:

  • Extend applications to web and mobile devices for productivity anywhere
  • Integrate multiple enterprise information sources into a single view for better decision making
  • Connect applications to social communities for broader knowledge sharing

XWork Server leverages XPages technology from Lotus® Domino® and Domino Designer 8.5.3.

XPages technology can be used to easily create Web 2.0 user experiences in existing applications or develop a brand new one and is fully integrated within Domino Designer. Leveraging XPages, applications can be written once and then delivered to either web or mobile devices.

XPages allows application developers to both extend the functionality and the end-user reach of current IBM Lotus Notes® and Domino applications, and rapidly create new, rich web applications -- all while natively adhering to current web development standards. Delivered through JavaServer Faces (JSF) technology, XPages provides both novice and seasoned web application developers, who are familiar with other web technologies, the ability to develop and deliver secure and flexible rich web applications. XPages offers application architectures functionality that was previously not available to Lotus Notes and Domino applications.

Enterprise-level deployments continue to be best suited to IBM Lotus Domino Utility Server - a Lotus Domino software license option that extends access to collaborative non-mail applications from a web browser without requiring individual client access licenses. Lotus Domino Utility Server is excellent for deploying collaborative applications where the number of users is high or difficult to track. IBM Lotus Domino Utility Server Express® software is an alternate option that provides an application-only option designed for, and available only to, companies that have 1,000 employees, or fewer. License restrictions remove selected Lotus Domino elements and attributes that are appropriate primarily for larger enterprises.

To order, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or the Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL.

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.
