The Domino effect is landing on J.D. Edwards One World.
In its latest attempt to link its networking
system to enterprise applications, Lotus
Development Corporation unveiled yesterday a new connector for J.D. Edwards' One World application
The connector is designed to let companies access information in their J.D.
Edwards software from existing Lotus's messaging and collaboration
"Lotus is a leader in the collaborative and messaging field, and the
Lotus Domino environment continues to provide tremendous value to
customers," said Greg Martin, director of product marketing at Denver-based
The announcement is the second wave of Lotus integration products for J.D.
Edwards' software. Earlier this year, Lotus released products that allow
users of One World to transfer mail messages to Lotus Notes and share data
with Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet users.
Lotus has also made similar announcements about connectors for other
enterprise applications like Oracle
Enterprise applications like One World are increasingly becoming the main
data collection devices and the centerpieces of corporate computing
systems. As a result, users need products from other vendors that can
easily pull and understand the data in the business software.
For example, with the new J.D. Edwards connector, a user of Lotus Notes or
Domino can access J.D. Edwards' supply chain software and view, share, and
collaborate on the data stored in business operations servers.
The new connector is set for delivery early next year. No pricing has been
