JAN. 15—New knowledge management and security products for the Notes/Domino enterprise platform starred yesterday at the Lotusphere 2001 conference in Orlando, Fla.

Lotus Development Corp.'s Knowledge Discovery System will use the forthcoming Lotus Discovery Server and the K-station portal for collaboration on specific projects. The server software, to be released later this year, hierarchically categorizes structured and unstructured information about workers and topics on a knowledge map, or K-map.

The server software will run under Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 6a or Windows 2000. It requires 10G of server storage. Clients can be either Lotus Notes Release 5 or Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 or higher versions of the browser.

Conference attendees also got a look at the first version of Mobile Notes groupware for a wireless device: the Blackberry pager from Research In Motion Ltd. of Waterloo, Ontario. Another new release at the conference was the securIQ Suite for securing and monitoring the use of Notes/Domino e-mail. The vendor is Group Software, the U.S. subsidiary of Group Technologies AG of Karlsruhe, Germany.

A free, 90-day trial version of the K-station collaboration portal is downloadable from lotus.com/home.nsf/welcome/kstation.
