Domino Administration: If you use IBM Domino and Lotus Notes, you want to be using this powerful platform to its full potential. The importance of expert administration is impossible to overstate and without a knowledgeable IBM Domino administrator in your team with the know-how to provide professional IBM Domino administration, where can you turn?
Try Life IT. As Premier Business Partners for IBM, Life IT offer a whole host of support, development and administration services for IBM Domino and many other platforms. Best of all, Life IT’s IBM Domino administration services are available to companies UK-wide, as everything can be handled remotely.
Here are just a handful of the many reasons why professional Domino administration is essential...
Maximise use of Disk Space
One of the great benefits of Domino 8.5 onwards is that it’s been designed to be “green” and energy-efficient. A well-administered Domino environment can reduce power consumption and resource usage, maximising the use of disk space. To make the most of this, it’s essential that your IBM Domino environment is well-administered.
Work at speed with IBM Domino
Time is money: it may be a cliché, but it’s also true. The faster you can work the better, so it’s vital to ensure your IBM Domino environment can keep up with you. To ensure that users and servers are managed efficiently the services of a knowledgeable Domino administrator are essential.
Efficient remote collaboration
As you know, one of the greatest benefits of using IBM Domino is that its collaboration tools are second-to-none. However, if these aren’t properly configured and maintained, you won’t be getting the best out of the improved collaboration, mobile and application development capabilities. A talented Domino administrator can help ensure the collaborative tools are optimised and configured correctly, making working quicker, easier and smoother.
Stop minor issues developing into serious problems
A good IBM Domino administrator will be skilled at managing servers and identifying potential issues, and will have the expertise to fix them quickly and thoroughly. Keep downtime to a minimum – remember, as we’ve already established, time is money!
Spot and plug security holes in your IBM Domino set-up
Any system needs robust security, and IBM Domino is no exception. One of your IBM Domino administration tasks should be to implement security features introduced in the latest version of Lotus Domino, including new encryption techniques, to ensure your security methods are up to date and effective. Not sure how to do this? Call on the services of an experienced IBM Domino administrator such as Life IT.
What others say about us
“Having migrated from IBM Domino to Microsoft Office 360 (Business Cloud), we are delighted with the results – and have 1000 happy internal customers who much prefer Outlook to Domino. Life IT were flexible, fair and supportive when schedules had to change due to other Gurit projects. We had direct access to engineers and technical staff and a dedicated team who were easy to work with. The whole project was done in a very friendly environment and I would definitely recommend Life IT for these sorts of migration projects.”

“Without the professional and expert support of Life IT, we wouldn’t have had the quality product we now have. They gently but insistently pushed the boundaries of our assumptions during the analysis phase, getting us to challenge our mind-sets and think outside the box. They then worked seamlessly as part of our team and delivered to time and to budget – no mean feat”.
Head of Technical Services—HCSS
“As we’d already invested significantly in Lotus Notes and Domino, a solution that built on our existing investment and skills was ideal. Life IT understood what was important to us and delivered a solution that met our needs. We’ve already seen the number of ‘distress calls’ to the sales office reduce as our sales managers can easily access customer data off line wherever they are and we’ve had positive feedback all round about the ability to update their call reports instantly on the road.”

“The Life IT solution has provided us with a significant reduction in support and maintenance costs and is an easy to use, more resilient and more easily maintainable system. As a business that handles thousands of transactions a day from 12 different own brand or white label websites it was vital that the whole process was seamless and, with the renewal of the support and maintenance contract from our existing supplier looming, it was also vital that the project came in on deadline. Life IT achieved this and more as they provided us with additional MI functionality and supported our staff whilst transferring their skills.’
Head of IT Development—DLR
“Life IT are doing a great job providing a very professional and efficient service. They are almost silently efficient and just get things done – only escalating issues when necessary. Their expertise in the AS400 is a key strength ensuring a real depth to their service and they keep us up to date with advances in technology too. So from an AS400 perspective I have very little to worry about.”

“After the restructure I was left with a critical resource gap which quickly needed filling, having worked with Life IT before I gave them a call. Their response was swift and efficient. They now work as a virtual Center Parcs help desk team providing a strength and depth of support. Their flexible working based on a time bank system is real value for money. So not only do I get an expert and efficient service, I have reduced my resource costs!”
Head of IT—Center Parcs
“We wanted flexible support to ensure 24/7 cover and Life IT worked with us to deliver this. Life IT has become integrated into the Bentley way of working and their role has expanded into looking at the technical side of the application as well as the support. “Our relationship has been built up over a significant period of time and both sides have worked hard to develop a supplier/customer relationship that can be used as a model throughout Bentley. We are now in the position where we have a pro-active partnership, Life IT are treated as part of Bentley, and that is a credit to them”.
