IBM Domino features

Built for business-focused, collaborative applications

An integrated workflow engine supports applications that help simplify processes based on paper documents or spreadsheets, or that require a high level of compliance. An integrated data store provides security-rich storage that can be extended to support enterprise resource planning and transactional and relational systems. You can deploy social applications, team rooms and discussion databases, and take action on content and events using a simple user interface.

Advanced administration, management, monitoring and tuning

An administration client and web browser interface enables efficient management. IBM Domino® includes problem determination capabilities to help you recognize and diagnose critical server and client issues within minutes. Tuning features help resolve server mis-configurations, performance bottlenecks and security issues. You can perform upgrades of IBM Notes® from a central location and enable users to recover passwords through the Notes ID vault.

Compression and single-copy attachment

Reduce required disk usage and network input/output using advanced compression for applications containing lengthy documents and documents with rich text and images. Attachment and object services store a single copy of attachments on the server and the IBM Domino server manages attachments, referring to the same file from multiple applications.

Flexible access and deployment, including mobile

Access IBM Domino-based applications through an installed IBM Notes client, a web browser or a mobile device running Apple iOS, Android, Symbian, Windows Phone 7.5 and 7.8, Microsoft Windows, Windows Phone 8, Windows 8 Tablet RT and Pro, BlackBerry 10 and IBM i Server. IBM Domino delivers a modern, rich user experience and enhanced support for IBM Notes Traveler Companion and IBM Notes Traveler To Do mobile applications.

Critical security standards

Public key infrastructure authenticates IBM Notes users and servers, verifies digital signatures and encrypts messages and applications. IBM Domino uses internet certificates based on the x.509 certificate format, supports Secure Hash Algorithm 2 and helps conform to the FIPS 140-2. Specify access level, privileges, user type and one or more roles. Use Transport Layer Security delivered by IBM and the Open Standard for Authorization credential store to support embedded experiences.

Integration with existing IBM and third-party applications

IBM Domino integrates IBM iNotes®, IBM Connections™, IBM Notes, application development (XPages) and third-party products and services. It supports Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) and OAuth, and includes an OpenSocial component to make third-party processes available directly in the client user's mail. IBM Domino supports IBM iNotes widgets and Live Text, OpenSocial 2.0 gadgets and embedded experiences in IBM Notes and IBM iNotes.
