iPhone Integration in Business: Lotus iNotes Ultralite Overview

In earlier coverage, we discussed IBM’s intention to adapt its Lotus Notes groupware for the iPhone. That development has now come to fruition.

IBM has officially launched iNotes Ultralite, a new gateway to Lotus Notes specifically designed for iPhone users, which is accessible at no additional cost to existing Lotus Notes license holders.

It’s worth noting that Lotus Notes has a user base of approximately 140 million globally, who rely on it for email, scheduling, and managing contacts.

With a focus on security, IBM opted to develop iNotes Ultralite as a web application rather than a standalone app. This decision ensures that all data transmitted between the iPhone and the Lotus Domino servers is encrypted.

Additionally, it prevents any data from being stored on the iPhone, safeguarding user information in the event the device is misplaced or stolen.

The introduction of iNotes Ultralite marks another significant step for Apple into the enterprise arena.
