  29. Notes/Domino 8.5
  30. Notes/Domino 8.5 enters public beta  Design partners (150+) have been working with us on 8.5 for nearly a year – even before ND8 shipped  Public beta began Friday, May 30  Accessible via nd85forum.nsf  Release date: Q4, 2008
  31. Notes 8.5  Calendar enhancements  iCal subscriptions  Notes Person Calendars, Team Room Calendars, Activities (ToDos)  Calendar overlays  Roaming  Expeditor features (e.g., Feeds and Widgets)  File Server option  All client settings in preferences panel  Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), Ubuntu support  Import/export/forward vcards  Notes Editor improvements  Drag and Drop 32
  32. Goals of Domino 8.5  Reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) through: Simplifying Notes identity management Reducing storage costs Improving quality of service (QoS)  while…  Maintaining compatibility with existing applications and infrastructure
  33. Domino 8.5: Simplify Notes identity management  Notes ID files have been a key consideration in managing end-user costs and administrator workload  However, they have also been the key to Notes/Domino’s highly secure reputation  Two new (optional) features will reduce the visible impact of the ID file:  Shared login  Notes users only need to remember a single password – their Windows password  Addresses key customer concern regarding Notes end-user overhead  Notes ID Vault  Reduce costs and improve turnaround time for lost IDs, forgotten passwords  Provides the ability to automatically reset Notes passwords, recover lost/damaged IDs
  34. Domino 8.5: Reduce storage costs  Storage costs consistently rate as one of the highest components of Domino TCO  New 8.5 features will help dramatically reduce disk usage, especially redundant storage  Domino Attachment and Object Storage (DAOS)  Allows for single instance storage for attachments/objects present in multiple mail files/applications  Stored as files – Allows for incremental backups – No single point of failure – Easy for administrators, no monitoring of file size  Document compression  Allow compression of Notes documents (also in 8.0.1)  Disk space savings of 35%  Significant cost reduction (storage, backup, etc.)
  35. Domino 8.5: DAOS example  Email with a 5Mb attachment sent to 12 people on the same mail server With DAOS, only 1 instance of the 5Mb attachment is written to disk and stored A disk space savings of 92%! – Less network bandwidth used – Less I/O – Faster database operations such as compact Prevents “Reply to All” scenario, where an attachment can be sent, and resent again and again…
  36. Domino 8.5: Improve quality of service  Domino Configuration Tuner (DCT) Ease the administrative tasks concerning misconfiguration that can lead to costly performance and security issues Identify problems Suggest potential solutions Detect, analyze, and address potential problems before they’re ‘discovered’… Extends autonomic work introduced in Domino 6, 7, and 8 Design partner reaction to this feature: Strong positive
  37. Notes and Domino 8.5: A premier platform for rapid application development Security-rich, business-process-driven applications that enable people to collect, organize, share and track information  Comprehensive and open development environment  GUI-driven, point-and-click capabilities  Supplied templates require no coding  Support for developers at every skill level—Lotus, Java™ and Eclipse software  Centralized administration for quick deployment  Component reusability saves time and increases responsiveness
  38. State of the Art Web Technology XPages: Web 2.0 meets Domino 8.5  Leverages both advanced controls and scalable runtime  Designed for generating modern Web applications – Built-in Web 2.0 features  Highly extensible, runtime and design time  Solves problems expressed by the Domino community  Known limitations are addressed – UI/data separation, HTML generation control, server state, localization, extensibility, etc.  Same modern rendering technology targets multiple clients  XPages is built on top of JSF, but simplifies JSF:  Easier to Learn: Enables use of Scripting Languages (JavaScript, XPath,…)  Adds other extensions (data sources, AJAX, Dojo, etc.)  No deployment step needed – works just like other design elements  And JSFs will run…
