From the Summary:
IBM SmartCloud Notes is a full-featured, email service designed for business and delivered by IBM. Users are able to access the service directly over the internet in a number of ways: the Lotus Notes® client, the IBM SmartCloud Notes web browser, or both. And IBM SmartCloud Notes is available on the go—with mobile options. By working with an IBM deployed technology, customer can feel confident that security and ease-of-use are top of mind. The IBM team of experts can help improve the efficiency of the email messaging environment while controlling costs.
IBM SmartCloud Notes supports two deployment models; the service only configuration which is wholly self-contained in the public cloud and a hybrid configuration that allows integration between existing on-premises environments and the cloud. The latter deployment model provides flexibility to serve end users in an on-premises system while serving other users in the cloud, in a way that is completely transparent to users inside and outside the company.
Some of the key benefits:
- Rapid deployment of collaboration and social software solutions
- Segment users and data based on user/organizational needs
- Help minimize security infrastructure needs for external collaboration
- Help reduce IT and administration needs
- Help control costs
With IBM SmartCloud Notes, enjoy access to the same robust Lotus Notes® browser or mobile client choices and collaboration tools in the cloud just like the incomparable Lotus® Notes/Domino® on-premises solution. Taking advantage of cloud computing can help customers work smarter and more cost efficiently by helping them make decisions quickly and streamline the way they work.
