Percussion Releases Lotus Tools

Percussion Software released two tools for Lotus Domino environments. Percussion PowerFlow 5.0 incorporates workflow capabilities into Lotus Domino applications, and Percussion ServerAdmin Plus for administering Lotus environments and migrating to Domino R5.

Percussion is also now bundling G2 Associates' ProActive Tools, a capacity and performance planning product for Notes environments.

The PowerFlow application development tool for adding workflow capabilities is built with an event-based engine using the Domino API rather than LotusScript. PowerFlow allows users to dynamically modify the process and the participants for documents already in process. PowerFlow is integrated with Percussion Notrix, a data integration tool that allows access to and from Notes and other relational sources. PowerFlow's interface is an enhanced 3D version of its flexible state diagram, and includes drag and drop functionality.

One new features in ServerAdmin Plus is the mail file analyzer, which resolves several mail file problems such as dead mail files, mail files with no owner, and users with no mail files. The upgrade also includes enhancements to ServerAdmin Plus modules.

G2’s ProActive Tools simulate a user's Notes environment. System engineers can then develop reproducible test cases that determine the optimal configuration for servers and systems or the response times for new applications, all measured from the user's perspective.
