On July 16, 2019, HCL announced the End of Marketing/End of Service of Connections Cloud and SmartCloud Notes (SCN) with services ending July 16, 2020. 

To make the migration as smooth, safe and secure as possible, and to ensure the future of our customer’s data and software, HCL has appointed a small number of HCL Cloud Hosting Partners/Managed Service Providers to deliver cloud services directly to you. ISW is one of these providers.  

ISW is a multi-awardwinning Asia Pacific and European software and technology firm focused on delivering innovative and intelligent business technology solutions to our customers globally. 

Its cloud business started in 1996, long before the technology was known as “cloud.” ISW was one of the first companies in the world to offer Domino 4.5 hosted. It has been a leading expert in hosting and managing HCL Connections with cloud deployments since Connections 2.5. ISW is the creator of HCL Connections’ new Activities module Activities Plus, which is a major component of HCL Connections today 

You can feel confident that ISW offers a secure and safe cloud environment equipped with the latest technology.

There are many reasons you should be planning an upgrade to the latest version of HCL Connections, since it drives greater adoption and creates a more engaged workforce within your organization. One of the key new features in Connections 6.5 is the integration at no charge of Kudos Activities Plus, a rapid, agile project management capability that gives your teams a way to reach their goals faster.   The redesigned Activities features in Connections 6.5 provide an intuitive, user-friendly interface and a lightweight project management tool that helps people align resources, tools, and knowledge to get work done. Assigning tasks and due dates are core to making sure projects get done on time and within budget. Kudos Activities Plus lets Connections customers manage tasks and projects on both mobile and desktop devices.  Any HCL Connections user can now easily and quickly organize tasks, teamwork, projects, and schedules directly from within their Connections environment. This new capability is free when you install the Connections 6.5 Component Pack.    Activities Plus is also fully integrated with Microsoft 365 (Teams, OneDrive, SharePoint, Outlook) for users who want to combine the benefits of both Connections and Microsoft 365 — Kudos Activities Plus is accessible from within both environments.
