Integrating Tivoli Directory Integrator and Lotus Connections

Collection using IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator

Lotus Connections provides a framework for delivering the project status, but in order to complete the solution, we need an effective mechanism of collecting the data.

IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator (TDI) is software that complements IBM software and solutions. TDI is often referred to as the “Blue Glue” because it helps to glue together different software components to create an entirely new software solution. TDI also complements our solution well because of the following properties:

* It is an integration tool that can easily move, copy, and transform data between applications and systems.

* It provides a rich set of connectors for connecting to many repositories and network protocols. One of the key requirements for the solution was to be able to connect to all parts of the IT system in order to provide a holistic view.

* It has an integrated development environment, which is easy to learn and use.

In summary, it is easy to use, easy to deploy, and versatile. TDI helps to automate the process of collecting data from a wide range of sources and publishing the reports to Lotus Connections.
