Our team of usability engineers spent two years, and over 2000 usability tests, to build the best, most-functional messaging interface on the market today. Users of Outlook, Google mail, and prior versions of Notes will find themselves instantly comfortable in the substantially-improved Notes 8 user experience. ----- Modern, intuitive, Web-like user interface with a rich set of capabilities and features. Coversation threads – group emails by thread or conversation, rather than individually. Hopes with inbox overload and management. Integrated IM in your inbox, as well as in each individual email. Allows you to follow up in context, when the necessity arises.
..and that team of usability engineers just keeps on going and going, and growing! We've added 50% more resource to that team since shipping Notes 8, to ensure that future versions of Notes continue to innovate and deliver best-in-class capabilities! ----- Intuitive user interface with a rich set of capabilities and features. Unanswered calendar entries – ghosted calendaring shows meeting invites, that you haven’t yet answered in gray, so that you can manage your calendar from your calendar, vs your inbox. Provides you with a total view. Integrated IM in calendar invitations.
Intuitive user interface with a rich set of capabilities and features. New business card view for easy scanning. Can customize with photos, images, etc. Integrated IM in contact list
Live Text recognizes different types of content and helps you automate common actions you might take against that content -- presenting relevant, real-time information that makes it easier to do your job -- with fewer distractions. My Widgets and Live Text in Lotus Notes expand the scope of information available to users. Get work done faster – reduce copy/paste Perform business actions with a single click Automate common look-ups Present relevant, real-time information – without storing it in a document – not subject to the date it was created Customize by role or individual

Reducing administrative costs has been another area in which we have really focused and delivered improvements in Notes and Domino 8.5. We think together they have an impact of about 30% as a result of enhancements such as reductions in the effort to manage ID files, through making policies more dynamic to automating upgrades and database file moves. As you may know IBM has a significant research and development initiative around “Autonomic Computing” - or systems that are self-maintaining and self-healing. This R&D work is being productized in capabilities such as Domino Domain Manager and Domino Configuration tuner, that are making it easier for administrators to diagnose and correct problems, or in the case of DCT – easier to avoid having problems and outages occur in the first place by analyzing the environment an recommending improvements.
Domino continues to be number 1 (according to data published by Gartner). Here is a summary of the key reasons why customers continue to choose Domino over Exchange and others etc…. We’ll now dig into each of these areas in greater detail
Security is no longer a nice to have – in today’s environment its essential Notes and Domino leadership in security is perhaps its most enduring strength. As security threats and have increased and other messaging platforms have become the regular target of attacks that exploit vulnerabilities, Notes and Domino have remained secure. Why? Because Security is part of the core architecture of our infrastructure. Notes and Domino security is truly end to end from the user on the Notes client to the document. We deliver, out of the box, a very comprehensive toolkit to protect clients, servers and more importantly protect your enterprise data that is managed by the messaging infrastructure. For example ID files that certify user identity Granular access control lists – down to the field level Encryption of data (128 bit or 1024 bit option in 7.0) Control over executables running on the client These are just a few of the facilities Notes and Domino customers take for granted (and lose no sleep over)
The extensibility of the Lotus Sametime client will give you access not just to people, but to information and resources. U sers need to have secure access to the information, resources and people to do their jobs faster -- without leaving their IM client This is a screenshot of the Sametime Client. Several things I’d like to highlight: First, you will notice that we have added dynamic location awareness. This uses the IP subnet address to recognize location. If the location has not previously been registered, the user is asked to identify the location which is stored so the next time the subnet address is recognized, the location will be known. In the future, we will also be able to integrate location based services from service providers. Also, note the client can integrate to the corporate LDAP directory providing valuable additional information about the people you collaborate with. We added a tray at the bottom where the capabilities provided by plug-ins can be accessed. Presence not only shows if a person is on line, but also if they are available…in a meeting, on a mobile device, etc. And by integrating the presence information from the telephony provider, we can also determine if the person is on the phone, what device they are accessible from, etc. You will also notice a set of buttons across the top tool bar. These allow a user to initiate a call (“click to call” through their corporate PBX, initiate a text chat, launch an IM chat or a web conference, etc. All of these buttons integrate the controls of the backend services provided by either IBM’s Sametime Server, or by other vendors, such as Alcatel-Lucent’s telephony and audio capabilities.
