Even though some of us wish they were real since it was said they could make poisonous water potable and heal sickness — both things that could certainly come in handy — unicorns are the making of fantasy. While Domino isn’t a mythical creature of great grace, it has proven its security, versatility, scalability and value in large enterprises for the last thirty years. Because it’s been around so long and has such a committed and die-hard customer community (even calling themselves “Team Yellow”) it has taken on legendary status. It has also inherited misconceptions — such as the platform is out of date or even obsolete. Nothing is further from the truth. Let’s walk you through some of these myths and show you what is possible with the Domino of today.

HCL Nomad brings the power of HCL Domino applications beyond the desktop, directly to where your users need to be. Get the same applications, unparalleled security, and offline capabilities — now on mobile. Deliver your apps on Apple iPhone and iPad, Android phones, and Android and Chrome OS tablets with minimal effort. Check out this feature sheet to learn more about HCL Nomad

While you can still use your Notes client to access your Domino appsapps can now be written for web browsers. Existing apps can be modified to run on a browser, and new apps can be written for browser access. The example you see here is an internal app we use for order processing written for the web and is used daily by our sales team.  

As much as we love and appreciate our Domino developers and administrators fluent in LotusScript and XPageswe want to open organization up to a much broader range of skills and talent and future proof your investment 

Now, any JavaScript developer can enhance, integrate and build new applications that include data and processes from Domino — without rewriting from scratch. This example here is a tracker application built with a web UI written in React – complete with cool filter sets. 

HCL Domino v11 is the most open version of the platform yet. Our integrations enable enterprises to more fully leverage Domino with other tools and applications across their business.  

Here we show a couple of integrations we’ve enabled. On the left, you see an integration between our internal sales app with our CRM system that enables real-time data verificationOn the right, we’ve integrated an app with Slack to provide instant notifications within a channel. Within Slack, a user is able to directly approve or reject a proposal submission which then advances the document according to the workflow set in our app. 

Domino apps are rocksolid and reliable. Which is probably why most of our customers haven’t thought about redesigning their apps or assume that Domino doesn’t provide the flexibility to do so.  

Here are several examples of how we modernized an app to today’s design standards. We also recently wrote a blog post about it. We not only gave complex, business-critical app a face lift, but made it work on mobile devices.

Domino v11. Fantastic, not fantasy. Get it done with Domino. Get a demo today.
