How would you like to be able to construct, deploy and get results from IT solutions using only your web browser?
Don't believe me? Well, how about coming to the IBM Forms wiki, where you can watch a few short videos that show you.
You'll be intrigued and want to go the next step. One of the prominently available wiki pages is a community article that gives you a starter pack of prebuilt solutions like the ones you see in the video. You can download any one or all of them because they're just single files that describe the forms, access control, workflow stages and other resources of each solution. You can import any of them into your own IBM Forms Experience Builder server, and then deploy them, use them, get results from them, and of course edit them to see how they work or to change them and redeploy them. All from your web browser.
Don't have an IBM Forms Experience Builder server to try it out? Well, now we've gotten to the main topic of this blog article. You can get your own free public access to an IBM Forms Experience Builder server. You can try out any of these starter pack solutions as well as build and deploy any of your own solutions.
Since you will be a builder of forms experience solutions, we will need to be able to present your solutions to you, distinguished from everyone else's solutions. So, you'll have to start by registering yourself with the system that hosts the IBM Forms Experience Builder server. The system is called Lotus Greenhouse, so click the link and then choose "Sign up" to get your account.
Once you're able to log in to Greenhouse, you'll get access to a number of software products including IBM's social business software (Connections), IBM Websphere Portal Server, and of course IBM Forms Experience Builder. However, you don't really need to log in to Greenhouse then menu navigate to IBM Forms Experience Builder when you can just bookmark the direct link to IBM Forms Experience Builder on Greenhouse.
Once you log in with your Greenhouse user id and password, you'll see the "Manage" solutions page, which lists all of the Forms Experience Builder (FEB) applications that you have designed. This is the page that gives you the ability to create a "New Application" or "Import" one of those starter pack applications, all at the press of a button.
So, now you can try out and evaluate IBM Forms Experience Builder now to see for yourself that there really is a smarter web where you can construct valuable solutions without coding now. If you are building IT solutions for your organization, you owe it to yourself to see how much more effective you'll be at satisfying your organization's IT solution demands. But even more importantly, if you're competing for IT solution services contracts, you owe it to yourself to become an IBM business partner or to expand your partnership to include IBM Forms Experience Builder. And finally, if you like to build industry-specific data management products, then you should consider becoming an IBM value-added reseller (VAR) so you can build your products more efficiently with IBM Forms Experience Builder and go to market with IBM to sell the bundle. In all these cases, you now have the access you need above so you can learn more and get started today.
