IBM Business Solutions

Integrated solutions to common business needs

At it's core, IBM Telephone Directory is a Web-based business application ready to provide alphabetical listings of names, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, and job responsibilities of personnel within your enterprise.

Other information may be listed as well, including postal addresses, fax numbers, pager information, department and office codes, and even pictures! It also gives administrators the ability to manage the information that is listed.

Optionally enabled features include the ability to allow non-administrators to add new directory entries (referred to as "open enrollment") or to login to search, update, and remove existing entries.

Advanced features include the ability for you and your colleagues to initiate chat sessions and online meetings using links found on directory listings, and to manage your identity relationships for a single-signon environment when updating your directory entries.

Personnel information is stored securely in a shared directory provided by a lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) server that may be located anywhere within your network.
