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.

How HCL Connections Opens Up Opportunities by Breaking Down Silos
From its inception, the HCL Connections collaboration suite was built around the central premise of openness and discoverability.  This was specifically done to ensure that content and expertise needed to collaborate effectively with other team members is easily discoverable. Information silos, on the other hand, disrupt and slow down collaboration. Eighty percent of companies in a recent survey reported a moderate to high degree of information silos within the organizations. Silos impede employee efficiency and can negatively impact both the top line and the bottom line of a company’s financials.

Why Connections Communities Are Critical for Project Teams Success
Project teams are a critical component of getting work done, and their productivity is key for success. Since collaboration and communication are so important, how do you know if your current toolset tools support your needs? Eliminate roadblocks One of the biggest roadblocks to close collaboration is the lack of a fundamental framework that makes collaboration easier. In other words, collaboration is not just a personal skill, it’s a result of structure and tools that support content sharing, ideation, and interaction between team members. If you add virtual project teams into the mix, the challenges of effective collaboration are even more pronounced.  HCL Connections solves this dilemma by enabling organizational teams and project teams to create “Communities” to support a collaborative work experience. So, what is a Connections Community? It’s a flexible, digital workspace where people come together to communicate, collaborate, share information and expertise, and solve problems. Communities enable information flow and sharing across the entire collaborative ecosystem. Make success repeatable Connections Communities make collaboration an integral part of the work experience by organizing your productivity tools, apps, content and tasks all in one place. Virtually everything you need, focused on a particular project or important activity, is at your fingertips. Whether you need to view the status of assigned tasks or edit a shared document, your Connections Community provides the tools to get the job done efficiently. Connections also includes a setup wizard to simplify the creation of new Communities. Use our built-in, professionally designed templates or reuse proven and engaging templates built upon your own best practices. Creating a new community and getting a new project team up-and-running has never been faster or easier. Be more productive One of the biggest productivity losses for project teams is searching for information. Information is typically disconnected from projects and tasks, and therefore hard to find.
