IBM Notes and Domino is an advanced platform for hosting social business applications.
It delivers scalable, security-rich applications at a low cost, helping you improve productivity, accelerate operations and enhance decision-making.
With the IBM Notes Database Connector, users have the ability to find content stored in Notes databases using Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud or Elastic Cloud Enterprise. Security defined within IBM Notes is automatically reflected in the search experience, which ensures that users see content for which they are authorized. Ultimately, users can find everything they need in one place.
The connector supports both full and incremental ingestion:
- Full ingestion requests and indexes all desired content from Notes databases
- Incremental ingestion requests and indexes only content which has changed since the last ingestion
The key capabilities of the Lotus Notes Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise are:
Provides both full and incremental ingestion of content into the Elastic index of your choice
Provides all management of security, role, and access list management, requiring no specialized security software or search index add-ons
Supports all document types within Lotus Notes
Supports filtering of the Lotus Notes content, allowing administrators to define specifically which data is sent for ingestion into the search index
Brings all associated metadata into the search index to drive refinement and relevancy
IBM Notes retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers). Users expect to click on a search result and be working on the original item or document.
The benefits of including Lotus Notes data within your Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, or Elastic Cloud Enterprise are:
Provides enhanced search capabilities into your existing search application while ensuring IBM Notes retains the master information
Increases adoption of IBM Notes via direct links back into Notes to any content found by a user
Indexes with a very high throughput
Has minimal impact of the source system, even helping to improve source system performance by offloading taxing search features
Requires no custom code, with full support and enhancements
