IBM Licensing – Rent or Own to Fit Your Needs
Licensing rental allows you to replace high up-front costs with a modest, monthly bill. Licensing rental may be the solution for you if:
- You are deploying a new installation and do not want the large initial licensing cost for your users and servers
- You are returning to IBM software and may be facing a high reinstatement cost or the need to purchase new licensing
- Over time you have added new users and are behind on getting them licensed
- You are upgrading from Domino 8.5 to Domino 9.0 and now need Utility Server Express for your Domino public websites
Alternately, we are happy to work with you to purchase, renew, or reinstate your licenses in the traditional ownership model. If you have a long-term investment in Notes, this can be a more economical solution. We would be pleased to assist you in determining the licenses you need and help you through the hurdles of the purchasing process.
Notes and Domino Free Entitlements
Some users may not realize is the depth and breadth of the options a Notes Domino Client Access License (CAL) affords the user.
With a Notes messaging or collaboration CAL, you can:
- Use the Notes client on Windows, Mac, and Linux clients
- Develop and access custom applications developed in Domino and Open Source languages
- Replicate mail and application databases to local Notes clients for increased performance and redundancy, as well as the ability to work offline
- Access all of the above with the browser of your choice via iNotes and Domino’s native support of HTTP(S)
- Utilize the iNotes Ultralite mode for a simple and slick mobile interface
- Use an alternate e-mail client such as Outlook, Entourage, or Thunderbird on the Domino server
- Use IBM Sametime, IBM Traveler, and IBM Connections
Messaging and collaboration in an IBM Collaboration environment isn’t just about a Notes client on a Windows PC. It’s about providing you and your staff with a wide variety of options to work the way you want, when and where you want, using the tools you choose.
