Lotus notes along with a domino server can be used as a powerful platform for managing access and accounts within an entreprise.
However, with the advent of wiki collaboration tools such as jotspot (www.jotspot.com), there is a real possibility of getting the same fonctionnalities implemented on a jostpost server appliance.
Lately, I have been toying with this concept using the following setup:
-Active directory setup on a windows machine
From there, I am trying to do a complete workflow for a typical AM task (AD account creation, email account creation and ldap acct setup).
Things to be working as planned although there are a lot of things to be ironed out.
