EntropySoft releases an IBM Lotus Connections read / write connector

EntropySoft, a specialist of Enterprise connectivity, released today an IBM Lotus Connections connector. By making this connector available, EntropySoft is increasing again its capacity to provide full access to information.

The Lotus Connections connector has read/write capacities and supports all item types: files, collections, activities, blogs, communities, wikis, collections and bookmarks.

When using the connector, any third-party product or line-of-business application can retrieve, create, delete, and update all above items. Full-text search in the repository is possible using the EntropySoft SQL language. The retrieval of users and permissions is fully supported.

With this new connector, EntropySoft extends its family of IBM connectors which already includes connectors for IBM Content Manager, IBM Content Manager OnDemand, IBM FileNET Content Services and Image Services (Panagon), IBM FileNET P8, IBM Lotus Notes, IBM Lotus Quickplace, IBM Lotus QuickR, IBM Lotus WCM and IBM WebSphere Portal PDM. This family of connectors allows a quick and easy connection with the repositories. With this addition to EntropySoft connectors’ portfolio, software vendors, IT Services companies and large organizations can seamlessly integrate with almost forty different repositories.

“Thanks to the 40+ connectors that we now have, we are effectively increasing interoperability between document repositories” said Nicolas Maquaire, CEO and co-founder of EntropySoft. “By adding yet another enterprise connector to our list, we are moving closer to our corporate goal: connecting applications to information.”

The IBM Lotus Connections connector is designed to be easily integrated in third-party applications and exposes the same API as the 40 other EntropySoft connectors. It is web-service based, so that no server installation is needed. Connection to an existing Lotus Connections repository can be achieved in a matter of seconds. The connector can also be used in conjunction with EntropySoft’s other products, Content Hub Appliance and Content ETL.

Content Hub Appliance is a single platform that provides out-of-the-box connectivity for over 30 applications and comes with the ability to easily transfer documents. Thus, any document management system can be easily connected to any archiving platform, in-the-cloud or on-premises. Furthermore, document repositories can be automatically synchronized in near real-time.

Content ETL is designed to Extract, Transfer and Load documents to and from connected repositories. It can handle the most advanced document transfers, preserving all metadata. Thanks to the IBM Lotus Connections connector, the Lotus Connections repository can now be included in these document processes.
