How to Extend Your IBM System to Mobile
Devices without Using the Cloud… So Your
Users Can Access Their Files Anywhere, and
Collaborate Securely across the Globe
If you want to extend your IBM Connections, Lotus Quickr or Lotus Notes system to mobile devices, so your users can access and modify their files from their iPads, iPhones and Androids (from anywhere in the world)… but you’re forbidden from using Dropbox or any other cloud solution… then this message will be of great interest to you.
The executives of your organisation — or maybe even you yourself — are championing the use of mobile computing, to refine and improve business processes. And you want to extend your IBM or Lotus system so that users can access their files from anywhere in the world… without having to carry laptops with them.
There’s just one problem.
Cloud Services Are Definitely
Not an Option — They’re “No Go”
Almost every enterprise forbids the use of cloud computing, because it poses a significant risk of data leakage. Unfortunately, that renders many of the obvious solutions — including Dropbox — completely out of the question.
If you’ve done your research (and you probably have), then you’ll find that….
WebDAV Is Your Only Option
The WebDAV protocol is supported very well across almost every mobile device — thanks in large part to Apple. This means almost every good mobile application also supports the WebDAV protocol natively too, straight out the box.
The bad news is… your IBM or Lotus backend system doesn’t support WebDAV. That’s why we’ve created a solution that bridges this gap. And if you read on, I’ll tell you how you can try it out for free— either within your organisation’s own environment, or within a virtual test environment.
Here’s what this is about: my name is Marten Vosmer, and I am the managing director of Lialis. Our signature software product — Lialis WebDAV — bridges the gap between the native iOS (and Android) WebDAV support, and your IBM or Lotus backend system. It allows your users to…
Access and Modify Files from
Mobile Devices, Anywhere in the
World… without Using the Cloud
Here’s how it works. You install Lialis WebDAV on your Domino server, and configure it for the IBM or Lotus system you use. Then you simply configure your iPhones, iPads, Androids, etc. to communicate with the Lialis WebDAV software.
If, for whatever reason, you ever upgrade or replace your IBM or Lotus backend, you only need to change the configuration settings inside Lialis WebDAV. You do not need to change any settings on any of your mobile devices.
This will save you a lot of time, hassle and headaches… and makes it really easy for your users to continue accessing their files, completely unaware of and unaffected by any changes you need to make to your backend system.
That’s it. The software is that simple. Your iPads, iPhones, Androids, etc. communicate with Lialis WebDAV, using the WebDAV protocol (which is supported by almost every great mobile app)… and Lialis WebDAV communicates with your IBM or Lotus system.
There’s not much more I need to say.
Can Lialis WebDAV really open up your IBM or Lotus system to all your users’ mobile devices? Is it really this easy to install, configure and maintain?
Here Is What Other Adopters of
Lialis WebDAV Have to Say
"Last year we saw an increase in the use of iPads and other mobile devices. The problem was to provide the users with the necessary data. After a research in the internet, we found the solution, it was Lialis webdav. Sure we are using Citrix too, but the advantage of webdav is the using the date offline. In combination with goodreader and the other stuff what you need on you iPad, it is a realy good solution. The support is good and fast. We are very satisfied with the product, it extends the use of Lotus Quickr".
— Ralf Simon, IT professional, Count+Care Darmstadt, Germany
"We use Lialis WebDav for the exchange of documents between iPads and Quickr. The users replicate the working group documents to the iPad for offline usage. An important work method is that the user calls the assistance at the office to prepare and place documents in Quickr which are needed with high priority. For this setup every Lialis WebDAV iPad user has an personal Quickr place which is replicated completely with the iPad. Main benefit: no documents in public clouds!"
— Werner Ermgassen, IT and Communition, Gesamtmetall, Germany
"When almost everybody sees Lialis Webdav as an interfacfe link between mobile devices and IBM Quickr or IBM Connections environments, we believe that the strength of the product is the ability to archive Quickr places to file server environments, etc ... As a construction company we're using Lotus Quickr as a project content management system but every time a project finishes we had difficulties to create or off-load the As Built documents to hand over to the client. Within the Lialis Webdav solution now we can easily create those files, so we can finally remove old project places from our production systems.
— Geert van der Wielle, manager, CFE, Belgium
"Our top magement is using iPads to bring more efficency into their regularly management-meetings. All presentations and documents for a meeting are stored in a separate folder in a Quickr place. The assistant of our CEO is managing this folder. With the GoodReader iPad App the managers can automatically synchronize the documents to their iPad's. All documents needed for a meeting are now stored locally on their iPad's. We can so eliminate a lot of paper and we reduce printing costs. Also short changes of documents can be managed"
— Robert Spaltenstein, manager Groupware, Allianz Suisse, Schweiz
Lialis WebDAV brought another level of ROI for Ewing's IBM Quickr, and iPad and iPhone investment. The product was very easy to install and support has been fantastic. My users are blown away; there's a big "wow factor" for them. This has enabled 40 of my sales people to turn their laptops in and use iPads online. I don't have one single complaint or regret. It really is a great product, with great performance. Along with an IT hero factor, I couldn't be happier."
— Mark Gesick, Communications Manager, Ewing Irrigation, United States of America
"We were looking at methods to have documents available on the iPad, and the ability for the contents of the documents to be synced when changes are made back in the home office. We’ve found it easy to use and easy to setup. And the support has been excellent! Now, we can easily synchronise documents between our server and iPads using WebDAV via Goodreader."
— Bob Morin, IT Manager, Government of Alberta, Canada
"We couldn't store the Lotus Quickr files on the IPad, because we're not always online. This made synchronization a problem. The most important benefits of this solution for use are: being able to manage files offline on the iPad; being able to synchronize files with Quickr; allowing multiple people to use the solution."
— Friso van den Berg, Head of ICT, The Salvation Army, Netherlands

Free… and Put It through Its Paces
There are two ways.
First, you can download the software right now… and install it on your own Domino server.

Then — once you’ve seen it working within your own environment — you can purchase as many additional user licenses as you need, so you can open your system to all of your organisation’s mobile users.
Second, you can use our own cloud servers to connect your mobile devices to your IBM Greenhouse environment.
(If you’re not familiar with IBM Greenhouse… it’s a live community where you can demo IBM Connections and Quickr for free on IBM’s own servers. You can create a free account here.)

P.S. Many of our clients have told us, they didn’t actually realise how much their organisations had grown to rely on the mobile access of their IBM and Lotus files… until their server was down for maintenance, and that access was temporarily unavailable.
Some of our clients have even transformed the way their organisations use IT, and have paved the way for huge refinements to business processes. And their contributions were recognised by their peers.
You too can use Lialis WebDAV to transform your organisation… and empower your colleagues to be more efficient.
