Elguji Brings IdeaJam to XPages

Industry’s First Lotus Domino XPages Application Now Available

Lotusphere Orlando, FL January 21, 2009 – Today Elguji Software, LLC announced the availability of their new release of IdeaJam, idea management software for IBM’s Lotus Notes and Domino powered by XPages.

IdeaJam provides companies with a place where people can post and share their ideas, and gauge the marketability, popularity and viability with voting and input from others. The latest version is the industry’s first application to offer full support for IBM Lotus Domino XPages, enabling businesses to use the most recent Web 2.0 technologies which scale better to support very large implementations of IdeaJam.

“IdeaJam is the most innovative Domino-based program we have ever implemented,” said Eric Lohry, president of Nutra-Flo Protein and Biotech Product, Inc. “IdeaJam lets us harness the creativity of our employees and quickly turn ideas into reality. We have implemented several successful projects that without IdeaJam never would have happened.”

With support for XPages, IBM Lotus Domino 8.5 customers can choose to run IdeaJam using XPages or classic Domino HTTP. Both ship in the same single template for backwards compatibility, which allows customers to run IdeaJam on whichever version of Lotus Domino they have installed. This support will allow Elguji customers to choose how they want to run their idea management process. All of the new features are part of the continuing, regular commitment of Elguji to provide the features and tools which its customers need to make the most of IdeaJam.

“The latest version of IdeaJam is the result of the ideas our customers posted on our own IdeaJam, said Matthew White, Chief Software Architect, Elguji Software.
Additional features in the latest version of IdeaJam include advanced search, reporting, web administration, idea archiving, custom messages and improved tag clouds, all features that have been requested by existing IdeaJam customers.

Elguji is demonstrating IdeaJam at the Lotusphere 2009 Product Showcase Pedestal 227.  
Matthew White and Bruce Elgort, members of the IdeaJam development team will be presenting a session at Lotusphere 2009 entitled “Developing A World Class Web 2.0 Application With XPages” in the Dolphin S. Hemisphere IV-V at 1:00PM on Monday, January 19, 2009.  There you can learn how they leveraged XPages technology to build “TaskJam” a free XPages based task management application.
