IBM could add to both Quickr 4 Domino and Quickr 4 J2EE a Webdav interface to quickr repositories.

This is needed to address a couple of things:

  • Better integration to Microsoft Office, the connector is good but this would make it work as native (faking a sharepoint server)
  • Better integration with Windows Explorer even without connectors.
  • Support of links between files (opening an excel file with links to other files with the connector is a guaranteed failure)
  • Allow existing software that support "publish to sharepoint" work with quickr too (for instance document scannig suites and other file based applications)
I'm sure IBM has all the technology and capacity to do this and I think this would complete the offering to win in Microsoft shops. Microsoft Office is still king of the hill in the market of office productivity. Supporting it in a native way is the best way to win.

Agree, customers use Infopath and save into Sharepoint, we can't offer the same facility to save into Quickr so loose out.

Technology improves and now a days these functionalities are available in one solution: Quickr iPad from Lialis: { Link } Direct access with the iPad/iPhone (or other tablet pc or mobile device) to attachments in the IBM Lotus Quickr databases, over the WebDAV protocol, without accessing the Quickr place in the Internet browser or using connector software. Always up to date access to information while it is possible to upload, download and or synchronize data.

Feel free to try out the software yourself, it is available at no charge for the first user: { Link }

Support and implementation information is available on the WebDAV support website: { Link }

Lialis offers two other WebDAV solutions, Lotus Webdav: { Link } and Connections iPad: { Link }
