How to Stop Your IBM Domino System from Failing, and What to Do if it Does

If you use IBM Lotus Domino to share and manage documents, you’ll know what a flexible, powerful system it is. But if unexpected issues or errors occur, and you don’t have Domino experts on-hand, who can you turn to?

Life IT (www.lifeit.co.uk) have been supplying businesses UK-wide with friendly, helpful, professional IBM Domino support for many years. They know Domino inside out, so whether performing system health checks or developing bespoke applications, their team of experts always delivers great results.

Here’s how Life IT can help ensure your Domino environment keeps running as smoothly as possible…

Minimise the risk of downtime with Domino monitoring

Performing regular services and health checks on your Domino set-up can help prevent potential issues becoming worrying problems.

Life IT can keep your server and Domino applications monitored. Once potential problems are spotted, you’ll be notified automatically. Depending on the severity, the system will either continue to be monitored or the problem will be escalated to Life IT’s Domino experts, who can then deal with the issue remotely.

There’s no need to have a Domino specialist on-staff, and no need to call out a technician to your premises – Life IT take care of everything.

Get immediate help in case of emergency 

Picture the scene. You’re working on an important project, remotely collaborating with several different parties. As always, deadlines are rapidly approaching. But something’s not right with your Domino environment. Replication is failing, preventing collaboration and stalling your project. And the clock is ticking. What do you do?

The answer: call Life IT. Their IBM Domino support service is available either during standard office hours, or 24/7, 365 days a year – ideal if you’re working into the wee small hours or with international partners across different time zones. Their expert technicians have the skill and know-how to get you up and running again quickly.

While your Domino environment is almost certainly stable and reliable at the moment, it’s not worth leaving it to chance – we all know that systems have a tendency to go down at the most inconvenient times, so it’s best to ensure you’re fully prepared for the unexpected.

Domino monitoring, support and more from Life IT 

Remember, no matter where you are in the UK, Life IT’s experts can monitor your Domino system and provide remote support servicing as and when you need it. Their skilled programmers can also develop bespoke applications for you – or update your existing Domino applications to add new functionality or improve efficiency and security.

Don’t Let Your IBM Lotus Domino Fall: Ensure You Have Expert Administration

IBM Lotus Domino performs crucial functions for businesses. It’s a powerful collaborative tool, offering communications, ecommerce and CRM.  As it can drive so many important parts of your business, efficient system administration is essential.

From server installation and monitoring to bespoke solution development, Life IT knows all the leading server technology, operating systems and applications inside out – and this includes IBM Lotus Domino. Here’s how IT specialists such as Life IT can help you ensure your Domino environment remains stable, secure and efficient.

Flexible administration – remote or on-site

One of the great benefits of Lotus Domino is that all administrative tasks can be carried out remotely. This means you don’t necessarily have to employ a member of staff with Domino experience, but can leave the administration to a third-party professional with remote access. Prefer admin to be carried out on-site? Third-party specialists can come out to your premises, too.

Get regular healthchecks and monitoring

Make sure your Domino environment is kept up to date with the latest software, and that it’s monitored regularly to spot potential issues before they become problems. If your team lacks the experience and knowledge to do this, consider the use of external support – or get them trained up…

Domino systems admin training for your team

Maybe you have reliable IT technicians who are capable and bright, but who lack the specific Lotus Domino knowledge they need to perform proper system admin for it. Specialists such as Life IT can provide thorough training for your team, teaching them everything they need to know to keep your Lotus Domino server up and running.

Holiday cover for your Domino expert

Maybe you already have an experienced sys admin who knows Domino like the back of his hand. But what do you do when he takes a holiday? If you’re using Lotus Domino for collaborative working, online transactions or CRM, you’ll be desperate to minimise the risk of downtime – which is why taking advantage of professional Domino support is essential.

So don’t let your Domino fall. Whether you need someone to look after your system administration (permanently or temporarily), support in monitoring your Domino environment, or you just need training for your own sys admins, Life IT can help. As well-established experts in all things Domino, they can provide their services across the UK, and can access your system remotely or visit you on-site.
