Domino is used across our entire international organization. Domino/Notes is used as an email, collaboration, and messaging solution as well as a simple database platform, and Intranet/internet web-based email. Domino's database platform facilitates data sharing and access control for divisional, territorial and organization-wide users.
- Domino support for policy-based user registration and deployment eases end-user creation.
- User access to databases is simplified via group membership and defined roles.
- Email replication to clustered servers is simplified through connection/replication documents stored centralized address book
- Group calendaring enabled at client level controls.
- I am not a fan of the Domino ID for authentication purposes. Some Admins appreciate this feature, but ID aging, updating and management issues are burdensome.
- Integrations with current available software applications as a result of lower Domino adoption rates.
- Administration tools are somewhat dated and clunky. Even with updates and patches, the Domino administrator console hasn't changed in years.
Domino is secure by comparison, due in part by it's lower market share, but also it's native encryption capability. Domino is stable. With fewer changes and revisions, Domino performance can be relied upon with existing infrastructure. Despite its clunky admin console, administration as a whole is easier and more intuitive. The native Domino application language is either Java or LotusScript. Finding developers for the latter application can be troublesome.
