Features & Benefits

ObjectBaseX™ provides a wide range of important features, including:

  • Easy to install: make sure you have an up-to-date browser (for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP2 or later. You will also require Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 or later.
  • Ease of use: ObjectBaseX is very easy to use. Since ObjectBaseX is an Internet application, much of the user interface works just like web sites you visit every day.
  • Easy to learn: The easiest way to learn to use ObjectBaseX is to dive right in--open the training database, add documents, use indexes, and explore. We'll be adding substantially more materials for training in the next few months--to help you learn more about ObjectBaseX and take advantage of its features.
  • Easy to maintain: If you have used any commercial software product you have lived through The Upgrade. Sometimes it can be reasonably painless--you just have to sit through ten minutes of blinking lights and odd noises from your computer when you're trying to retrieve your meeting notes. Other times a software upgrade can wreak havoc with your computer--breaking other programs. You'll never go through any of that with ObjectBaseX--because the software runs on the ObjectBase servers. (Sure--we see the blinking lights and hear the odd noises, but you don't have to.) Updates, bug fixes, security patches, and new features are all handled at the server--the only thing you'll notice is a slightly different version number when you connect.
  • Easy to access: You can get to your data in ObjectBaseX from almost anywhere--just connect to the Internet, and point your browser to ObjectBaseX. You don't have to find a computer with a special device attached, or worry about finding a computer with a current seat license: there are no seat licenses for ObjectBaseX. (We should point out, however, that ObjectBaseX does include a security feature that lets a company administrator restrict access to a database by IP address. So while you can connect to ObjectBaseX from practically anywhere on the face of the earth--even Pike County, Ohio--you may be restricted from getting to your data. More on ObjectBaseX security.)
