We are thrilled to announce an ambitious new program called the HCL Digital Solutions Academy that seeks to empower our community of partners, developers, admins, customers and other key stakeholders to learn and understand everything our products are capable of. How to stay current about each new release, make the most of new capabilities, learn best practices, understand how they can power new opportunities and solve challenges, and, ultimately, transform business.

We will be creating and sharing content in a regular cadence — through webinars, demos, articles, social media, events, and email — under the umbrella of the HCL Digital Solutions Academy. Our software helps people get real work done. We help people solve challenges, fix disparate systems, automate the everyday, and realize the “power of the possible.” At HCL we truly extend our relationship beyond the contract, and help people achieve the business outcomes they are looking to us to help them do.  

We are building out a rich roster of content created and delivered by multiple teams within HCL — development, support, product management, technical advisors, etc. — but we don’t want to stop there. We want to invite you, HCL Masters, Business Partners, and customers to help us develop this program and grow our content catalog. Please send us a note with feedback or ideas for content you would like to see or help deliver as part of the HCL Digital Solutions AcademyThe content we will be sharing with you includes webinars, workshops (hands-on labs), technical videos (10-15 minutes each), podcasts, and learning journeys. 

And before you ask, the answer is yes! We want to bring back technical certification! Certification is very close to my heart, just like it is for many of you. In fact, I strongly believe that being a certified developer and administrator in our HCL Digital Solutions portfolio was key and opened many doors for me, first when I was a customer and then when I became a consultant and Business Partner. Our plan will allow us to eventually bring certification and badges, but we first need to close the gap with content. The more content we produce the easier it will be to create learning journeys and certification roadmaps.  

Digital Solutions Academy is an international, multilingual program and we will be rolling it out across the globe — sessions are in English unless noted otherwise. Here are the first set of upcoming events and experiences — organized by region and date — that you need to sign up for right now. We are excited to have you join us.

We’ve also launched a brand new Sametime meetings solution over the last two years. The response from customers and business partners has been unanimously positive!    Today, we’re excited to announce, “Project Eleven,” a new program designed to help every Domino and Sametime customer running on releases prior to v11 have a smooth upgrade experience. As part of the HCL Digital Solutions Academy, Project Eleven’s goal is to enable you to:   Go straight to Domino v11.0.1: HCL now supports direct upgrades from any of Domino version prior to v11. Whether you’re on v8, v9, or older, you can go straight to v11.0.1 with no additional steps necessary. Experience the latest version of Sametime risk-free: Secure meetings and data privacy are the most important features in today’s environment. Sametime meetings runs on Cloud Native technologies allowing you to auto scale as needed. Experience our brand new, highly secure, scalable video meetings and enterprise chat risk-free. Augment your skills today: Attend our online training sessions and get best-in-class support and training from a technical advocate in your local language. We’re rolling out more than 40 webinars and workshops and new articles, cookbooks, and help guides.

Introducing HCL Domino Early Access Program
We’re proud to announce the HCL Domino Early Access Program, a new program that gives our customers and business partners a chance to test new product features early in the development cycle. This program provides a preview of features and functionality that may be shipped with a future version of HCL Domino and gives us the ability to incorporate your valuable feedback. At this stage, we are providing early access to features that contribute to HCL Domino v12.  The Early Access Program aims to get feedback on specific features, with a more formal traditional beta program planned at a later stage to receive feedback on the overall release quality and language packaging.  The Early Access Program is feature-driven and iterative, meaning new iterations and code drops will be made available as soon as it is declared ready for testing by our development team. New code drops can be provided in just a few weeks after the previous one, on short notice, without sticking to a fixed release cycle.   Based on your feedback we may proceed, improve or adjust the feature, or in some cases withdraw the feature from the code stream. The following graphic illustrates this concept: Each code drop is provided in the form of a Docker image which enables us to ship new iterations faster and to minimize the time to upgrade from one code drop to the next. You can expect us to deliver code drops at a fast pace as we want participants to have exclusive access to our latest product feature set. Please note that only the newest code drop will be available for you to download. How to Participate HCL Ambassadors who have registered Domino v11.0.1 Beta Preview will automatically be added to Domino Early Access Program. Customers and partners with a current Notes/Domino entitlement will also have access to the Early Access Program as of today. There is no need to register separately to participate. For overall...
