Business Objectives
Everyone has different goals and priorities when choosing an EIM solution, however many organizations share common objectives:

  • Integrate with corporate LDAP or Active Directory
  • Control public IM use - reduce security threats, improve productivity
  • Encrypt IM conversations - keep confidential, meet HIPPA requirements
  • Log and Archive IM communication - meet Sarbanes Oxley requirements
  • Communicate in real-time - improve productivity
  • Communicate with mobile users - improve productivity
  • Leverage IM & presence within business apps - improve productivity
  • Remove distractions - remove consumer IM clients from business use
JBuddy Server meets all of these requirements and more.

As a client/server architecture written in JavaTM, JBuddy Server runs on several operating systems and supports thousands of concurrent users with clustered, distributed deployment for fault-tolerance and scalability. Shown with several optional gateways (AIM, MSN, SMTP, and JBuddy Protocol Gateway), JBuddy Server supports encrypted, private EIM, central control and logging of IM communications with AIM and MSN public IM users as well as real-time messaging between IM users and mobile users.

Central Management and Control
Unlike Peer-to-Peer (P2P) chat software, JBuddy Server offers central administration of all users, offering the organization the ultimate in messaging flexibility yet with fine-grained control. Control which users can use which screen names on which public IM networks. With messaging archiving enabled, users are less likely to abuse their IM access privileges and company auditors can keep track of what was said, when it was said, and to whom it was said, providing a clear history for any conversation. With the web-based administrative interface, managing and administrating your JBuddy Server is easy - from anywhere!

Solutions to Extend Your Existing IM Solution
Already using an enterprise IM solution such as Lotus Sametime, Microsoft LCS, OCS 2007, or any XMPP (Jabber) server? You can still take advantage of the robust routing and EAI capabilities of the JBuddy Server without replacing your existing IM investment. JBuddy Server can be easily configured to extend your existing IM solution to route messages & presence between IM users and mobile E-Mail and Blackberry users while still keeping a central message log of routed communications.

Turn your Web Site into an Instant Help Desk
With the JBuddy Server and the optional Instant Help gateway, your intranet or internet web site can be transformed into a presence enabled click-to-chat sales & support help desk using whatever IM network you already have.
