The Importance of Expert IBM Domino Administration

If you use IBM Domino and Lotus Notes, you want to be using this powerful platform to its full potential. The importance of expert administration is impossible to overstate and without a knowledgeable IBM Domino administrator in your team with the know-how to provide professional IBM Domino administration, where can you turn?

Try Life IT. As Premier Business Partners for IBM, Life IT offer a whole host of support, development and administration services for IBM Domino and many other platforms. Best of all, Life IT’s IBM Domino administration services are available to companies UK-wide, as everything can be handled remotely.

Here are just a handful of the many reasons why professional Domino administration is essential…

Maximise use of Disk Space

One of the great benefits of Domino 8.5 onwards is that it’s been designed to be “green” and energy-efficient. A well-administered Domino environment can reduce power consumption and resource usage, maximising the use of disk space. To make the most of this, it’s essential that your IBM Domino environment is well-administered.

Work at speed with IBM Domino

Time is money: it may be a cliché, but it’s also true. The faster you can work the better, so it’s vital to ensure your IBM Domino environment can keep up with you. To ensure that users and servers are managed efficiently the services of a knowledgeable Domino administrator are essential.

Efficient remote collaboration

As you know, one of the greatest benefits of using IBM Domino is that its collaboration tools are second-to-none. However, if these aren’t properly configured and maintained, you won’t be getting the best out of the improved collaboration, mobile and application development capabilities. A talented Domino administrator can help ensure the collaborative tools are optimised and configured correctly, making working quicker, easier and smoother.

Stop minor issues developing into serious problems

A good IBM Domino administrator will be skilled at managing servers and identifying potential issues, and will have the expertise to fix them quickly and thoroughly. Keep downtime to a minimum – remember, as we’ve already established, time is money!

Spot and plug security holes in your IBM Domino set-up

Any system needs robust security, and IBM Domino is no exception. One of your IBM Domino administration tasks should be to implement security features introduced in the latest version of Lotus Domino, including new encryption techniques, to ensure your security methods are up to date and effective. Not sure how to do this? Call on the services of an experienced IBM Domino administrator such as Life IT.
