Accellion promises to cut e-mail storage needs

OneCopy is designed to integrate with file servers, network drives, network area storage or storage area networks.

Accellion OneCopy is immediately available for IBM Lotus Domino 5.X and 6.X by annual subscription. A 50-user license is priced at $995, with additional 50 user incremental package for $495.

The new Hummingbird Enterprise Lotus Notes Integration Module is intended to allow organizations to: manage all critical business content and correspondence in a simple way from within the Lotus Notes interface; declare Notes content as records; automatically profile correspondence in the Hummingbird Enterprise repository with a drag-and-drop; attach documents or references to documents within the Hummingbird Enterprise repository to an e-mail message; and achieve productivity gains as users work with all business content from within the Lotus Notes environment.

The Hummingbird Enterprise Lotus Notes Integration Module is expected to be available in Q1 2005.

A 'one step' migration for Lotus apps

Quality On-Line, a San Diego-based enterprise application development firm, has launched a new initiative to help companies migrate from what it calls "proprietary Lotus Notes mechanisms."

The vendor has constructed an application architecture based on J2EE that, according to the company, enables enterprises to replace their Notes and Domino applications while avoiding "a multi-step, multi-year initiative, such as IBM Workplace." Other features of the platform include a structured programming environment to improve consistency between different applications, an integrated workflow and process control engine, LDAP and Active Directory support and reusable code. The vendor says companies such as Royal Dutch Telecom and Syngenta have already migrated their Lotus Notes applications to the Quality On-Line architecture.
