The big day is coming soon! HCL Notes / Domino v12 will be launched globally on June 7th (it’s already available for download on HCL FlexNet since May 27th). For those customers planning to upgrade, we have some great news. Whether you have been keeping pace with the rollouts of new HCL Notes client versions, or are WAY behind, there is a path for a seamless and smooth transition to v12. The MarvelClient Upgrade solution empowers organizations to optimize their HCL Notes client management and standardize all client versions with a consistent configuration during the automated upgrade process.
Common Upgrade Challenges
What we have heard consistently from organizations around the world is that they want to reduce the complexity of their HCL Notes client installations and lessen the administration support tasks required. It is an ongoing challenge for IT support groups to keep pace with the upgrade cycles provided by their vendors. The following list is a showcase of some challenges that organizations face during an upgrade process:
- Creation of Notes Client Install Package (with standard configurations)
- Upgrade Package Deployment for Remote Users (with or without VPN)
- Installation / Upgrade Process Execution Trigger for Automation
- Migration of Notes Data Folder
- Automated Upgrades for Different Deployment Models (Laptops, Desktops, Citrix, VDI, different OS versions, etc.)
The MarvelClient Upgrade solution handles all those requirements and more. The centralized tracking and reporting environment allows administrators to monitor the client deployments for all employees. And if any modifications are made through user error, they will be rectified and reset to the standard, supported settings on the next restart of the HCL Notes client. These automated, self-healing functions enable any organization to ensure a consistent environment for their users and reduce the number of IT support calls from HCL Notes client installation issues.
In addition, the MarvelClient Upgrade automates the entire process. This makes it easy to perform regular upgrades in the future as new software versions become available. If your organization is preparing to upgrade HCL Notes/Domino in the near future, please access this best practices list to avoid common project pitfalls.
