IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5 for Domino Administration

Overview of this book

When the IT strategy calls for maximizing the value of social software for building effective teams, neither social networking nor team collaboration is sufficient on its own. Lotus Quickr Team Collaboration software delivers the promise of social software; but ensuring that a business's social networking site is compliant can be daunting. This book will help you ensure effective and efficient team collaboration by building a solid social infrastructure with IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5. The book will familiarize system administrators with all the information they need to install, upgrade, and manage IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5. You will also learn to leverage social software principles to foster diverse teams in an interconnected world. This book will help you break virtual boundaries and remove the impediments to the development of high-performance teams through the use of IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5. This practical book starts off by providing you with a clear, detailed walkthrough of key concepts including collaboration beyond document management, and adopting social collaboration in an enterprise. We then examine the product architecture of Lotus Quickr services and provide a walkthrough of deployment aspects of Lotus Quickr to provide a scalable environment through clustering. We cover some of the basic tools used to set up and manage the IBM Lotus Quickr server along with unique methods for upgrading to the latest 8.5 version. We provide you with an in-depth look at the concepts of Lotus Quickr Connectors deployment, management, and a new capability around Windows-based single sign-on to solve a variety of problems. By the end of this book, you will be able to build a well-executed social collaboration platform that delivers the productivity edge needed to succeed in the digitally interconnected business world of today.
