IMiS/mDMS framework enables users to quickly mobilize their existing IBM Notes applications and consolidate them through one, virtual application portal.
It’s flexible and can be adapted to virtually any requirement without having to adapt the underlying application or mDMS component. It’s managed through IMiS/mDMS Service from where the connecting IMiS/mDMS Client receives all necessary information about function and look-and-feel of provisioned applications.
IMiS/mDMS allows IBM Notes users and developers to mobilize and access their existing IBM Notes/Domino applications through mobile devices without having to know anything about device’s platform and development specifics or modifying their applications in any way.
It utilizes revolutionary “Application abstraction” approach where any application can be displayed and used through native mobile device application in similar way even if they look and feel totally different using them through IBM Notes client or web browser. Each Service instance can consolidate large number of different Notes applications throughout Company Domino Domain displaying them through virtual Application Portal.
Its flexible design enables each application to be authored and designed by customer needs without having to modify the underlying application. Complex business logic already available in applications can be integrated to be called and executed directly from mobile devices thus honoring all the rules and settings different applications might have implemented.
IMiS/mDMS Client connects to IMiS/mDMS Service through internet in a secure manner utilizing all protection mechanisms IBM Domino server has to offer including PKI and latest SSL protocols such as TLS 1.2. It displays and interacts with the data transferred by the IMiS/mDMS Service based on the Configuration settings. Utilizing Device profiles it provisions different configuration bundles to each device/platform at login time which is best suited for physical constraints a mobile device might have.
IMiS/mDMS Service provides IMiS/mDMS Client look-and-feel configuration services, uses IBM Notes application connection extensions to access application data and provides extensions for executing actions within the context of Notes documents. It also provides access to archived content stored either embedded in IBM Notes applications (document attachments) or externally on different ECMs (currently IMiS/ARChive Server is supported, other ECMs will be added). Service Administrator also uses the service for license management and issue tracking/reporting.
