On the other hand, the proposed information, like all available information, may differ from the objective need for information to solve the problem. Deviations occur when the necessary information is not available. Information that is not offered indicates a qualitative deficit in the provision of information that may be caused by an excessive amount of information. Information is often available only because it is technically possible to attract and retain it.
In order to extract and process relevant information from a technically evoked data stream, data warehousing concepts and data extraction methods are currently being discussed, with which the information offer should be adapted to the objective need for information. Inappropriate information (knowledge) is called “news.”
In this regard, fields are a news offer, fields 5 and 7 are a message request. Fields 4 and 5 cover information on supply and demand. However, field 4 only partially covers objective information needs. Elimination of lack of information and excess harmonizes supply and demand. Focusing solely on the information necessary for problem-oriented information support, suppliers and consumers adapt to the requirements of objective information needs. A certain objective need for information becomes the initiator for the effective coordination of supply and demand for information. All three circles are brought to cover.
The dynamics of the process of adapting to a problem-oriented supply of information is determined by situational features of the flow of information, the demand for information and the need for information. The figure, with some possible reasons, describes the situation of suboptimal provision of information.
Project-oriented work of business consultants with small structured problems requires an effective ICT tool (ICT: information and communication) for the search, processing, storage and transmission of information. As a client-server solution that emphasizes support for less structured information and its distributed use, Lotus is predefined for these tasks. The communication architecture flexibly adapts to organizational conditions and allows integration into a wide range of technical systems environments.
Lotus Domino is based on a document database management system in combination with a powerful mail system. The database contains documents (user data) and control information that controls the use of user data. The most important elements are masks (forms) for structured input and display of information, as well as presentations that list documents organized according to various criteria in a tabular overview.
Domino Customized. In Domino, for the user, you can store and edit various information in different ways. The full-text search feature provides quick access to unstructured information. Notes are flexibly represented in the structure of individual databases. Freely configurable representations show various representations of stored information. Categorizing documents and creating personal or public folders also makes it easier to find information.
Programming powerful programs (so-called agents) that can be run periodically or triggered by certain actions provides advanced control mechanisms for processing procedures. Support for formulas and an object-oriented scripting language allows you to quickly develop a wide range of database applications. Lotus became known not only as a group software development platform, but also as a collaboration software development platform.
Currently, there are many professional solutions from suppliers that work closely with Lotus as a “business partner.” Distribute products. Security and scalability are other important features; In addition to electronic signatures, encryption of email, documents or entire databases, the system of differentiated rights allows you to control access to individual documents or sections of documents, databases and servers. Because many applications, such as databases based on older versions of Domino databases – the so-called legacy Domino applications – are not designed for remote access via a web browser or mobile device.
