We are committed to rolling out new features for HCL’s Digital Experience (HCL DX) platform in a cycle of continuous delivery. This means that every month and quarter there will be product updates that address requests from customers, technology optimizations, and general improvements that help you deliver incremental value in your digital experiences. We are making huge investments in our platform, and we are making sure your investments are protected. This March, take a look at the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow – here are some of the latest updates we’re planning on rolling out this month (or sooner!).

 

Hot DAM! HCL DX now includes digital asset management  

Eliminate the headache of duplication and searching across separate repositories for digital assets with the new HCL Digital Asset Management (HCL DAM) — a lightweight digital media library — available for no additional charge for HCL DX customers.  Upload, find, tag, optimize, and publish your assets efficiently, all within HCL Digital Experience, and assure proper rendering/optimization automatically across all digital touchpoints.   Take the experiences you provide to the next level by delivering video at production scale with packaged integration with Kaltura, a market leading video platform, for video transcoding and streaming.             

                       

Be nimble, be quick  

More open and accessible APIs provide developers the ability to reuse services in any application, on any touchpoint, using any front end they choose. This provides greater agility in blending complex content, data, and systems — dramatically improving the ability to deliver modern digital experiences faster and more reliably.  

 

OpenShift? Check!  Amazon EKS? Check!   

Now, you can run HCL Digital experience in any native Kubernetes environment, offering ultimate flexibility; choose the platform and deployment that makes the best sense for your business — whether that’s on-prem or in the cloud. We offer support for all market-leading cloud solutions (such as OpenShift and Amazon EKS), so you can install updates anywhere, in minutes, using Docker and Kubernetes. This gives your organization the ability to run HCL DX as a combination of the best technologies to deliver unique, customizable experiences with significantly fewer resources.   

 

Maintenancefree? Yes, please!  

Cloud deployment removes the need to maintain software or infrastructure, with benefits in gaining scalabilty and reliability.  Automated provisioning, auto-scaling, and self-healing via Kubernetes support dramatically reduces total cost of ownership (TCO). 

We are excited to be on the move with our continuous delivery, giving you a steady flow of new benefits and helping you be as successful as possible with using HCL Digital Solutions. As always, give us your feedback and input by attending one of our HCL DX Connects, or by sending us an email. And, of course, follow us on Twitter

Your Digital Experience Should Evolve with You
With deep integrations and a history of rock-solid reliability, see how HCL Digital Experience has evolved into the industry’s most robust cloud-native platform. Our top global digital agency firms tell us, “it’s much harder for DX platforms that support the anonymous user experience to bridge into the known user experience and integrate everything “behind the login.” HCL DX at the core shines by bringing all those applications and processes to life with relevant content that completes the customer journey”. It has been only 18 months since HCL acquired IBM Digital Experience, the longtime DX platform that is the leader across every analyst report in this space. We are incredibly proud of the progress we have made in advancing the technology to new heights — making the user experience more intuitive, providing modern tools for developers, and giving administrators more flexible options to deploy new capabilities 10x faster than before, whether in their on-premises environment, in the cloud, or in a hybrid cloud environment. We have come a long way, and the journey continues! When you are a leader, the competition can get fierce. Let's set the record straight. REALITY: Far from it. Our proven legacy in digital experience for decades has established deep trust from prospects and customers alike. Our eye for innovation has not been stifled as a result of our traditional systems and has in fact been accelerated since joining HCL. In the last 18 months, we have increased our engineering headcount by triple digits worldwide, and this trend will continue as we look to continue to build innovation our clients need. We have undertaken a continuous delivery model and have delivered 11 new releases since July 2019 and we have been recognized as the LEADER in the SPARK Matrix for DXP.   REALITY: Wrong! We have recently...

Deploy Cloud-Native HCL Digital Experience — in Minutes — with HCL SoFy
Cloud-native adoption can seem complex and daunting — but it doesn’t have to be. Digital experience platforms that connect and integrate some or all parts of your enterprise require thoughtful planning, organization and testing to successfully make a cloud-native transition. The benefits to adopting a cloud-native approach, however, are huge. From reducing your total cost of ownership (TCO) to speeding up the development process and delivering experiences during peak times without service interruptions, adopting cloud will accelerate business processes, improve system reliability, and preserve the value of your investments.  With HCL SoFy you can dramatically simplify and accelerate a cloud-native deployment of HCL Digital Experience … it will take about the same amount of time it takes to make a cup of coffee(!).  You can also connect other HCL products and services in just a few clicks — and discover the native synergies within HCL’s family of products — in a cloud-native environment.  Testing New Possibilities  Deploying HCL Digital Experience cloud-natively in minutes may sound too good to be true, but HCL SoFy makes it easy. HCL SoFy paves the way for rapid testing and prototyping cycles that enable organizations to speed cloud-native adoption, reduce TCO, auto scale services based on demand, and even accelerate the deployment of your feature pipeline keeping organizations ahead of competitors.  HCL SoFy enables organizations to quickly assess and test cloud-native strategies to see what best fits adoption plans. It also helps organizations quickly gain the expertise to successfully adopt cloud-native and establish an understanding of what is required to make a transition to a cloud-native environment.  Using HCL Sofy, businesses can gain valuable insights to help plan cloud-native adoption transitions based on hands-on expertise and real-world scenarios.  Watch this video to learn more. Taking the Guesswork Out  The move to cloud-native solutions has many benefits but getting started and assessing the differences in implementation (compared to an on-premises installations) has historically stopped many organizations from taking the plunge. Learning how to transition your HCL Digital Experience platform to a cloud-native deployment using container, Kubernetes and microservices technologies used to be painful, but, now with HCL SoFy, it’s much easier to understand, plan and take the guesswork out of making the cloud-native transition. With HCL SoFy, you can also connect other HCL products — such as HCL Unica and HCL Commerce — to provide a world-class experience to your customers with just a few clicks.  Tell Me More  HCL is not only committed to providing the latest cloud-native technology, but also to helping organizations successfully transform to being entirely cloud-native. Learn more about how you can take advantage of HCL SoFy’s powerful features with HCL Digital Experience by registering to see it in action in a short webinar and live demo or through scheduling a free personalized workshop where our team can help you get started.  [button link="https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/7194598673384101135?source=blog" color="silver"] Register Today[/button] [button link="https://leap.hcltechsw.com/apps/anon/org/app/9f05f80f-f0d9-4559-8eb6-9f025699aa91/launch/index.html?form=F_Form1" color="silver"] Schedule a Free...
