Innovative Software Solutions
to Real Business Headaches

IBM Business Partner with focus
on Collaboration and Usability

Demand Better Solutions was founded in 2013 with the idea of creating modern applications that take advantage of new tools and technology in order make doing business more streamlined and efficient.
We can improve, update, or modernize any classic Notes application, taking it from boring to eye popping. They can also be converted into state-of-the-art web applications. Demand Better Solutions is not limited to Notes applications; we can modernize and migrate other systems as well. We want to take your old business critical applications and give them many more years of usefulness using modern technology.
With 20+ years’ experience in development in Lotus Notes and Domino, as well as for the web, our lead developer is a multi-year IBM Champion. The team backing his efforts has decades of experience in Information Technology, Project Management, Systems Analysis, and Business Analysis. Together the Demand Better Solutions team can provide innovative results for any business.


Demand Better Solutions specializes in solutions based on IBM:s Collaboration Software, mainly IBM Notes® and IBM Domino®. With over 20 years of experience, we have an extensive experience of this  versatile application and database platform.

IBM Domino is often called a “Swiss army knife“, since it can do so much out of the box. A skilled Domino developer can build very powerful applications in a short time, saving the customer money and deliver a fast time-to-market of the solution.

With Domino being one of the earliest NoSQL databases, today it is a mature product. The platform is currently being updated with some of the latest technologies for web development, e.g. node.js.


Application modernization is big part of what we do at Demand Better Solutions. We use several different approaches, based on the requirements of the client.

We modernize existing Notes applications, giving them a more attractive and modern look in the client. In addition we enhance existing applications, adding new functionality or troubleshoot existing problems. We can also help with server administration.

We also web-enable Notes applications, partially or fully, to allow the users to move to a web browser instead of using the rich client. This is especially desirable for companies who moved off Notes as a mail platform, but have existing applications they need to keep on the platform.

Domino Development

Another area where Demand Better Solutions can help our client is in development of new solutions or applications for IBM Domino. With our 30+ years of software design, we can create brand new applications, custom built for each client. We work closely with the client and the users of the application to build a solution that helps the users to be more efficient, while using a modern looking application.

We can in many cases also help import existing data from legacy systems into the secure NoSQL database used by IBM Domino.

Finally we can help migrate data from Domino to other systems, either by exporting the data in a format usable for import or by developing a connector between the systems.

Web Development

Our main priority when we create web applications or websites is that they are modern looking and user friendly, thereby attractive to use as well as give the users the functionality they need.

We use modern techniques to improve performance, such as only retrieving the updated data instead of reloading the whole page. We use standardized components or plugins when possible, thereby making the web applications work in a familiar way to the user.

Demand Better Solutions has many years of experience designing user interfaces in different environments, so we have developed true-and-tested best practices to use in our solutions.

Karl-Henry wasn’t only a writer who combined in-depth technical knowledge with sometimes delightful irreverence, he was also our in-house applications programmer. We’re still using Lotus Notes editorial applications that Karl-Henry designed in the 1990’s, and we’ve seen no reason to replace them.
