Den nye Android-klienten krever at du har en enhet med Android 2.x og gir deg epost, kalender og aktivitetsliste. Applikasjonen kjører også på Android tablets.
Husk at din Lotus Notes Traveler server må kjøre versjon 8.5.2 for å supportere Android-enheter. Om du tidligere har benyttet en betaversjon av klienten på den håndholdte enheten din, må du avinstallere denne før du installerer den endelige versjonen.
Her er pressemeldingen fra IBM:
Armonk, N.Y., 14 December, 2010. . .IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced new software that will help employees work smarter on the road, as well as significantly enhance the power that employees have in choosing their own mobile device for work, whether it be a smartphone, tablet or personal notebook. The new software will allow employees to collaborate with coworkers inside their organization and personal contacts outside their organization, all on the Google Android operating system.
IBM Lotus Notes Traveler software for Android is the first “native” enterprise-grade e-mail messaging client for the Android, with a built-in in capability for automatic software updates. Native software saves industry technology (IT) managers a significant amount of time and money.
More employees are opting to use their personal smartphones or tablets for work projects, rather than using sometimes limited “work assigned” devices. According to Gartner(1), by 2014, 90 percent of organizations will support corporate applications on the personal devices. The report states that “the trend toward supporting corporate applications on employee-owned notebooks and smartphones is already underway in many organizations and will become commonplace within four years.”
More than ever, businesses are embracing the model of a mobile enterprise, and a late 2010 Nielsen Ratings poll states Android was the among the top three most used operating systems (OS) on smartphones and “the most desired.” Also, another recent Nielsen Ratings report states that the Android was the fastest growing operating system in the first half of 2010.
IBM Clients Embracing Choice
IBM clients such as Salvation Army, Town of Fort Erie, Deutsche Bahn, Kelros, and Crosby Group, are using IBM software to give their workers a choice of mobile devices.
“We have noticed a jump in smartphone adoption and it is great to have a native solution where our employees can choose from multiple devices that fit each of their specific needs,” said Eric Peterson, Messaging and Workflow Specialist, Salvation Army Western Territory.
“IBM’s new mobile software gives our IT department the ability to support our employees in using the smartphone platform they choose,” said Reid Canavan, IT Manager, Town of Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada, which has approximately 150 government workers and 30,000 citizens.
“Town of Fort Erie has employees who would also like to have access to their e-mail, calendar on a variety of different smartphones beyond the ‘company-assigned platform.’ With this in mind, the use of Lotus Notes Traveler on these smartphone devices allows us to enable mobile access with no additional cost to us,” added Canavan who added he also plans to expand support the use of tablet computing devices.
“Lotus Notes Traveler now provides users with broadest spectrum of devices and operating systems on which they can receive push emails and synchronize their calendars and contacts. This breadth of choice makes the decision to deploy Lotus Notes Traveler the easiest of all the mobile mail solutions available for Lotus Notes Domino,” said Marc Garcia, Director, Kelros, a UK-based IT consultant firm whose clients include Fujifilm and Dairy Crest.
