Sharing Technologies (Orlando, Fla.) announced recently plans to offer its flagship client/server knowledge management product, Papirus for Domino, for IBM server platforms. One of the first targets for Sharing’s new offering is the AS/400e Dedicated Server for Domino.

Currently available for servers running Windows NT, Papirus will be migrated to IBM server platforms this year. The new versions will run on the IBM S/390 and RS/6000, as well as the AS/400.

“By expanding Papirus for Domino to multiple server platforms, Sharing Technologies is extending the reach of its products and their ability to truly function across the enterprise,” says Peter Brennan, senior VP of the Americas at Sharing Technologies. “Collaboration at this level is the key to successful knowledge management capabilities.”

Papirus integrates into Lotus Notes and Domino to facilitate business processes that depend on collaboration via Lotus Notes and Domino. Papirus allows users to capture information in any application’s format, including legacy applications, ERP, CAD/CAM and business intelligence reports. Users can then share that information through a Domino-based intranet, and Papirus automatically updates users on changes. Papirus allows information from diverse sources to be consolidated in a single information package in Notes, which can be indexed, searched, extracted and reused. Papirus is designed to reduce e-mail traffic, eliminate the need for working with attached files, and allow implementation with little change to current IT infrastructure.

“With the introduction of Papirus, Sharing Technologies is delivering a comprehensive knowledge management solution based on the power of Domino and the scalability and reliability of AS/400,” says Nyrie Paloulian, IBM Worldwide Domino/400 solutions manager.
