Lotus Notes is a global information tool aimed at businesses which need to share information. It is a very complex piece of software to set up and install, and needs expertise in network administration to ensure that the communications links between countries or buildings are reliable and efficient. It provides a "quick tour" of Lotus Notes, looks at what Notes needs (hardware, etc), covers installation, setting up users, security procedures, shows how to install the main software onto a central server, and covers installation of the software onto each work station and day-to-day running procedures. The book should be of interest to network managers and M.I.S. managers.
