Your Development & Design Resource's Intranet Solutions with Lotus Notes and Domino

Intranet Journal Logo Today published the first part in a series of articles that I'm writing for them about utilizing IBM Lotus Notes/Domino for corporate intranet solutions. The site, who just recently completed a series entitled Introduction to Microsoft Sharepoint Portal Technology, presented me with an excellent opportunity to share with a relatively Lotus-technologies-free readership the true power, versatility, and diversity of solutions offered to the "Notes shop".

The implementation of a corporate intranet is often the first non-messaging project that a company utilizing IBM Lotus Notes/Domino (LND) undertakes. A "Notes shop" is typically exposed to the often underutilized product via its robust e-mail, calendaring, and task management capabilities. It is, however, the Notes Database architecture and the Lotus Notes Client's ability to replicate server-side functionality in an offline or otherwise "island" state, that make it an excellent intranet solution engine.

I plan on taking the readers on a tour of built-in functionality, a few 3rd-party solutions, and a few suggestions, tips and tricks for the DIY crowd. Most of all, I plan on trying to convey why I do think that LND is an excellent solution engine - especially for the corporate intranet!
