Businesses are challenging IT professionals to help them achieve a greater degree of productivity—organizational productivity. Technology can no longer be just a series of stand-alone applications. Solutions need to integrate people, information, and business processes in order to satisfy the need for on demand business that is more efficient, flexible, and responsive to changing market conditions.
Organizations want to increase their productivity with dynamic work environments where role-based workplaces can be created with ease. And they want open standards-based solutions that integrate across their entire product portfolio.
IBM's technology portfolio provides end-to-end solutions for our customers. When real-time collaborative solutions from Lotus are coupled with a leading web services platform such as WebSphere, the combination extends collaboration to a broader range of users, business partners, and customers. The rich capabilities utilizing components can be embedded in any client, allowing for the creation of dynamic, role-based workplaces. Together, Lotus and WebSphere are fundamentally changing the way people and organizations work.
IBM WebSphere and Lotus: Implementing Collaborative Solutions provides a concise step-by-step guide on the best methods of implementing a merged Lotus and WebSphere strategy. It is a technical guide that will be of great use to developers and administrators, particularly those looking to design or implement large, enterprise-wide deploymentsof WebSphere and Lotus solutions.
As corporations evolve in the on demand world, IT professionals must deliver practical and cost-effective solutions that address the ever-changing business environment. Future success requires focusing on growth, dedication to core competencies, accelerating the time to market, reducing costs, and earning a prominent position in the global marketplace.

Great, great book! Excellent read for us network administrators/non Lotus programmers. Now that I have read this book, I have great insight on how my world wide Lotus Domino servers can coexist with Websphere - and also plan for Websphere growth.Was this review helpful?

IBM plans to combine as much as possible the advantages of its Lotus and WebSphere products. Lotus offers a cooperative environment, while WebSphere is excellent for running J2EE applications that are scalable and use transactions. The book goes into myriad details about this convergence. But there is one salient message. Lotus (and Domino) is moving towards WebSphere. The reason is that WebSphere is based upon the open standards of J2EE, and IBM strongly supports this. Whereas Lotus predates the Web, and is comprised mainly of proprietary standards. The book stresses that IBM is scarcely abandoning Lotus. The installed user base and third party applications built on top of it is too great for IBM to contemplate the revenue loss if it did so. Still, if you are a Lotus developer, this book is a harbinger. Collectively, Lotus developers are safe in the near term. But do you as an individual programmer want to get trapped in a stable or shrinking ghetto? Think this is unlikely? Then consider those people maintaining DEC's VMS machines. Now supported by HP. But VMS is an ever diminishing field. So the book can be valuable to Lotus developers. Somewhat of a tangent from the authors' intent, perhaps. Consider burnishing your skill set, and giving yourself some insurance, by learning Java and J2EE. Or even C# and .NET.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
