It’s been exactly a year since the official launch of HCL Domino Volt, and it’s been a fun ride! In the last year, we’ve gained more than 400 new customers and have seen consistently high attendance on all our webinars and workshops. In fact, the launch webinar in April 2020 took the top spot with the largest number of registrations across the Digital Solutions portfolio in the entire year! We’re thankful for our customers, partners, and everyone who has contributed to the success of this product.

The fun continues this year with our current April release. Domino Volt is on a quarterly release cycle and this marks our fourth release so far. Starting today, customers can access v1.0.3 on the HCL License Portal and we’ve provided updated documentation here.  Before I dive into the details of this release, I’d like to share two important events:

  • New release webinar: Tomorrow, I’ll be hosting a webinar about this release at 10 AM ET. You can read more about the release below but wouldn’t it be cooler to see it in action? Join my webinar and come with questions! I’m anticipating a lively Q&A session.
  • Global launch of Domino v12: Domino Volt will be available for Domino customers on v11 and v12. Join us for this exclusive event to learn about this major release. There will be a dedicated session on Domino Volt during the live event on June 7. Following the live event, we will be unrolling 12 days of exciting Domino content. I won’t reveal much here but there will be an exciting announcement you don’t want to miss!  

 What’s New with Domino Volt 

New integration with HCL Link: I’m excited to announce that HCL Link is now included as part of Domino Volt. This addition will greatly expand and simplify your integration options.  Administrators can set up connections to relational database, SaaS services like Salesforce and ServiceNow, REST services, Excel spreadsheets and more. Domino Volt designers can then use these connections and easily integrate them into their apps.

More ways to use your Domino investment: Create, update, and delete data in Domino databases (in addition to reading, which was released in 1.0.1), and trigger Domino Agents to run from events in your app.

Build more than forms: Add app pages (pages that are not forms) to your app on front-end menus, dashboards, and display of information. You can also add navigation elements to your app that let users move from any page in your app to other pages with ease — without having to write any code.

Customer Success Case Study for Nolte Küchen, GmbH
A new customer success story was recently released by panagenda and was subsequently published by the HCL marketing team. The story outlines the dramatic improvements of the HCL Notes client management and improved upgrade processes for a German manufacturing company, Nolte Küchen. Below is a quote from their team lead who manages the Notes and Domino environment for the company.  “With panagenda's MarvelClient solution, a version upgrade for our entire organization took a fraction of the time — weeks instead of months — that it used to take.”  —Dr. Dirk Kirchhoff, Nolte Küchen The company has been a long-time Domino shop, first deploying the collaboration and communication platform in 1997. However, by 2010, they had a sprawling set of inconsistent client deployments across the organization. This was causing issues with IT support troubleshooting and making subsequent client upgrades a nightmare. After deploying the MarvelClient solution the IT group was able to successfully identify the non-standard HCL Notes client configurations on all computers and quickly implement a fixup campaign to push out a common install.  Helpdesk calls were reduced, and client performance improved for all users. As stated by their team lead, “MarvelClient suddenly provided us with full visibility into the current Notes client environment and highlighted the potential problems cause by a mixed bag of inconsistent installs.”  To download a copy of the customer case study from panagenda, click here.  The case study has also been published on the HCL website  for your reference.  Enabling a Smooth and Speedy HCL Notes Client Upgrade  For those customers who have not upgraded their HCL Notes clients in years, and are subsequently out of practice with the processes and procedures to ensure a smooth experience for their end users, we can help. The MarvelClient Upgrade solution empowers organizations to optimize their HCL Notes client management and standardize all user installs with a consistent configuration. If any client settings or modifications are made through user error, they will be rectified and reset to the standard, supported configurations on the next restart of the HCL Notes client. These automated restore functions enable any organization to ensure a consistent environment for their users and reduce the number of IT...
