Web-based Messaging
IBM Lotus Workplace Messaging

IBM Lotus Workplace Messaging is a Web-based messaging solution. The solution is claimed to help organizations cost-effectively extend enterprise messaging to workers without a dedicated workspace or current e-mail access. Lotus Workplace Messaging is targeted at 'deskless' workers within an organization, such as factory floor workers, shop assistants, airline employees, and other workers that typically do not have access to e-mail. This set of users tend to send and receive a lower volume of messages compared to traditional office and knowledge workers, and they require a solution that is easy to use and needs little or no training. IBM claims that Lotus Workplace Messaging can help deliver on all of these end-user needs while helping to maintain the high level of reliability, availability, and scalability. Built on open standards, Lotus Workplace Messaging is claimed to be able to easily integrate with existing messaging infrastructure. Specifically designed to fit efficiently alongside standards-based directory and high-function messaging environments, Lotus Workplace Messaging runs on the IBM WebSphere Internet infrastructure software and uses IBM's DB2 Universal Database to help deliver high scalability and overall performance. With support of standards like LDAP v3, Lotus Workplace Messaging can integrate with IBM Lotus Domino and other standards-based messaging infrastructures to give customers the ability to quickly respond and adapt to evolving business needs. The package includes IBM WebSphere Application Server, IBM DB2 Universal Database, and IBM LDAP directory. Currently available on Windows 2000 and IBM AIX platforms with language support for English and 7 other international languages. IBM Software Services for Lotus provides additional support, including technical services for installation configuration, knowledge transfer and capacity and network bandwidth planning around the new offering. Customers can also engage technical services to integrate this new solution into existing messaging environments as well as portal solutions customers may have already adopted.
