The Art of the Possible with HCL Domino Volt
We recently hosted our first HCL Domino Volt roundtable session, a series where we introduce HCL Domino Volt topics and host open discussions with our customers and partners. In this session, we covered several use cases for Domino Volt apps. We focused on visually enhancing out-of-the-box components with pure CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) and JavaScript. If you missed the live session, you can catch the replay here or read the recap below. Domino today is used by over 15,000 customers globally to develop applications that run their business. With the introduction of Domino Volt, our mission was not only to protect the investment of our Domino customers but also accelerate their ability to deliver business solutions faster and increase the value of Domino. By providing our customers and partner with new application development capabilities that extend throughout the organization, we empower everyone to build solutions while still taking advantage of Domino’s security, reliability and low TCO.  In just 3 months since our launch, over 80 new customers have taken advantage of Domino Volt to accelerate their delivery of applications to the business. Here at HCL, we believe in drinking our own Champagne (or "dogfooding" as the software industry calls it.) We recently launched an internal hackathon to see if our team could build apps to solve our business challenges as well as other real-world challenges facing our customers or community. More than 20 teams with more than 50 members across the globe participated, and none had prior Domino Volt experience! Some of the submissions were from sales team members who had no development experience at all. They were only given two weeks to design, develop, test, and deliver their apps — on top of their day jobs! We were thoroughly impressed with the apps submitted. Using CSS, the teams got...

Licensing Update For Cloud Customers – Connections, SCN/Verse and DAC
On July 16, 2019, HCL announced the End of Marketing/End of Service of Connections Cloud and Domino Apps on Cloud (DAC) with services ending July 16, 2020. As part of this announcement, Richard Jefts, GM and VP of Digital Solutions shared our cloud strategy moving forward. Core to HCL’s philosophy is transparency, simplicity and commitment to a relationship beyond the contract. We intend to apply these principles to our licensing strategy to smoothly transition customers into the appropriate license terms in line with their actual use of our products and services. Our licensing transition will ensure that customers continue to have the entitlements that they have been using under the Dual Entitlement part numbers on-premises while maintaining the flexibility of term licensing and user counts instead of PVU counts. This will ensure that customers continue to take advantage of the vast investments HCL is making in Domino, Verse on Premises, Notes, Connections, Docs and Sametime.   The table below depicts current entitlements made available with the Dual Entitlement part numbers. HCL customers who are currently licensed under part numbers D1HYBLL, D1HY8LL, D1HY5LL or D1HY2LL will be transitioned as follows at renewal time:   Customers deployed on the cloud: Will be able to renew as well as additional purchase users under the DE licensing model from IBM Term of the renewal will end on July 16, 2020, coinciding with the EOS date On or before July 16, 2020, customers will be able to transition to the new below on-premises part numbers   Customer not deployed on the cloud: Will be renewed on a new term, on-premises licenses that will provide like for like entitlements at the same price of a Dual Entitlement renewal with HCL Dual Entitlement to on-premises part number mapping: Below is the mapping that will be used for...
