The Power of Notes Domino in action

A client has requested an application that pulls data from three disparate sources with several variants in each – making a total of 9 data sources – including Sage Line 50, Access and a proprietary estimation tool. Most developers would not look forward to this kind of unpredictable and messy interaction but this is where domino can really shine.

Though it hasn’t been decided if the application should be an xpages app or a standard domino application – initial testing and scoping shows that the true power of Domino is the ability to put together a robust application that links to those data sources and presents the data to the client in a way that none of the individual systems could.

I am looking forward to the  final design stage to show what can be created in Domino and used by the client to improve their bottom line in these tough economic times. More about this project in future posts.
