The Countdown to the Newest HCL Domino and Sametime Begins! Join Us for Our Global Launch.
I am thrilled to announce that registration is now live for what will surely be a true, blockbuster event on June 7. This exclusive virtual event celebrates our latest versions of HCL Domino v12 and HCL Sametime. The first 1200 registrants got a free gift (we blew past that number in a couple of days!). I personally love the amazing video that helps capture the excitement as we could down the days to these “breakaway” releases. (An agenda will be released soon. Follow us on Twitter to get the latest.)  The launch event will include thought-leading sessions, demos, customer speakers, and more. And, it kicks off an exciting collection of Domino content delivered in a series we are calling the “Domino Dozen” (once you’ve registered for the launch, you will have access to this program). Each day, for 12 days following the launch, we will drop a new, essential Domino-related treasure. These pieces will include webinars, panel discussions, and technical deep dives, early access to special programs, thought leadership pieces, and more.   Also, join us for the closing keynote and happy hour on June 23 — we are calling it “Nerdi Gras” as a hat tip to the days of Lotus past. We will be releasing a party kit soon, with downloadable favors, so you can join in the fun. For those of us who’ve been on this Domino journey with us for so many years — and for those of you who we will be welcoming as new customers — we can’t wait to celebrate. Join us.

Verse 2.1.0 Is Now Available!
We are pleased to announce the release of HCL Verse 2.1.0 for general availability. In the past few months, we have been focusing on providing you a more user-friendly email platform which aims to boost your productivity at work.     Some of the new features of this release are:    Contact Photo from Domino NAB:     Now you can upload your contact photo (profile picture) to the Domino Directory through Verse. There are a few ways to do this:    (1) Upload a photo from a local drive   (2) Enter a URL to photo  (3) Take a picture using the photo booth in Verse and upload it!    If you already have a photo configured in the Domino directory, Verse can access the directory and display your contact photo.     A New Extension Point – Modify on Send    Extensibility is one of the focuses of our product. In this release, we deliver a new extension point which allows customers to modify the email body and subject before mail is sent. One of the major use cases is inserting a classified marking to mail subject and body. This feature helps users to flag and classify emails based on sensitivity of information.  This is particularly useful to public authority, government departments and large enterprises.    Verse-Sametime Integration with new Sametime web client    This improvement is not limited to Verse 2.1.0. With Sametime 11.5 FP1  (released in Feb 2021) you can now initiate chat and meetings with your co-workers using the new Sametime web client. We understand that it may take time for customers to upgrade to Verse 2.1.0, so this new experience is compatible with previous versions of Verse as well.  To enjoy this new feature, just install the latest FP of Sametime!  These are just some of the features of this release.  To see the full list, please refer to our Release Note.  To try out these new features for yourself, simply download the package from Flexnet.    For more Verse information visit:  HCL Verse Developer site can be found here HCL Verse Ideas Portal on Aha - Domino Product Team

Digital Tools to Transform the Employee Experience
Every successful company invests in customer experiences, but far fewer are making the kind of investments in employee experiences that truly matter. As companies add more and more applications to support their business and customers, employee experiences can be neglected — even though now the need has never been greater. Digital platforms and tools are an essential component of an effective business to employee (B2E) strategy. An employee experience is the sum of interactions and exchanges an employee has within their company — both personally and organizationally. How an employee perceives his or her journey through all the touchpoints within the organization matters. A lot. Why? Because employees are the true drivers of your business and the better the employee experience, ultimately, the better the customer experience. A Gallup study found “that companies with highly engaged employees outperform their competitors by 147% in earnings per share,” and that highly engaged employees are energized through an exceptional digital workplace. Businesses are also seeing a cultural shift with new norms and expectations from employees. Add to that the recent pandemic, which has accelerated the use of digital tools and driven the need for companies to invest in digital platforms like never before. As employee demands and outside pressures continually grow, companies can’t afford to ignore these expectations if they want to attract and retain talented employees and teams. Employee portals are key to improving the overall employee experience. Whether it’s an employee searching for IT support documentation or taking an eLearning class online, these B2E portals offer the opportunity for businesses to radically improve the employee experience. You first need to understand why your employees would be using intranet portals. Are portals used to collaborate with other employees, search for answers to common questions or just necessary for getting work done? Gaining...
