NEW!! Notes/Domino entitlements updated to leverage Connections 4 (Files, Profiles) & Tivoli Directory Integrator 7.1



Existing entitlements for IBM Lotus Notes and IBM Domino customers have now been updated to leverage IBM Connections 4 and IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator 7.1. As of 14 November 2012, new images and DVDs are now available on IBM Passport Advantage Online for entitled customers. See below for more specifics.


IBM Connections 4 Update

IBM Lotus Notes/Domino customers are now entitled to IBM Connections 4 Files and Profiles applications. IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.3 software delivered significant new social capabilities within the user's familiar collaboration experience, enabled by entitlement to IBM Connections Profiles and Files applications at no additional charge, and delivered through no charge plug-ins that provide convenient access from the Notes sidebar. That entitlement has now been updated to provide Lotus Notes/Domino customers access to enhancements to the Files and Profiles applications of IBM Connections 4.
The Files application helps provide a fast and easy way to share files with individuals and groups and there are many enhancements in Connections 4 that provide added flexibility in file handling. New features include the ability to upload multiple files at the same time, download all of the files in a view, adding files to a folder during upload, select and perform actions on multiple files at one time and a graphic "Like" option now available on the file page.

The Profiles application helps you locate the people you need by searching across your organization using keywords that help identify expertise, current projects, and responsibilities. With IBM Connections 4, status messages and responses, along with information about other actions performed by the profile owner are now consolidated under a new Recent Updates tab, making them easier to find. The redesigned business card has an improved layout and easier access.

Tivoli Directory Integrator 7.1 Update

The existing entitlement in IBM Lotus Notes/Domino 8.5.3 has now been updated to IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator 7.1. Tivoli Directory Integrator software provides Lotus Domino customers with an identity management solution that can help get users, systems and applications online and productive quickly. It synchronizes and exchanges information between applications or directory sources, eliminating the need for a centralized data store. For companies that choose to deploy a company-wide directory solution, Tivoli Directory Integrator software can help ease the process by connecting to the identity data from the various repositories throughout the company.
Enhancements to Tivoli Directory Integrator 7.1 include updates to Configuration Editor, Administration and Monitoring Console and Action Manager, New Parsers, Connectors, and Function Components, and Server, Server API, and Server Components.
