Many of you have been asking about our plans for Nomad Web in the past weeks and months. Believe us, it was hard to not be able to share with you what we were working on. But finally, the day is here:
We are excited to announce MarvelClient for Nomad Web!
HCL and panagenda worked hard to deliver MarvelClient with the NEW release of Nomad Web (1.0.1) which was just published at our license and download portal.
What Do You Get Out of It?
As with Nomad and Notes on other platforms, you get some goodies straight out of the box, for free, forever.
- Get a rudimentary overview of your Nomad Web landscape
- Manage some core settings in the notes.ini, like User Preferences & application specific parameters and values
- Give your users a good start into Nomad Web with a one-time migration of their settings and desktop from existing Notes clients. (Not available with initial release, will be delivered with Nomad Web 1.0.2)
But Wait, There’s More!
While the free functionalities are a great first step, paid MarvelClient modules are also available to make your experience even better.
- Create an adaptive configuration that restores itself at every start. Ensure stable and reliable operation and prevent issues from occurring in the first place.
- Discover problems, plan a course of action, and monitor the effect of your changes with an in-depth analysis of your Nomad landscape
- Standardize settings and UI to provide the ideal user experience from the first start —tailored to every end-user’s needs
- Allow your end-users to seamlessly move between all instances of Nomad Web, Nomad Mobile, and Notes clients
- Automatically restore Nomad Web state in case of device loss, swap, or browser cache reset
All of these functionalities together significantly lower admin effort, can reduce the volume of help desk tickets by 80%, and maximize end-user productivity.
Let’s Talk about Migration Roaming.
One of the exciting free functionalities is the one-time migration to Nomad Web. It makes sure that a user who launches Nomad Web for the first time is greeted by the client they know. Their icons, their applications, their settings — all there.
Stay on the lookout, this feature will be available with the release of Nomad Web 1.0.2 later this year!
In the meantime, you can already begin preparations by continuously collecting the configuration of all your traditional Notes clients with MarvelClient Essentials. These roaming sets are stored for each user in your MarvelClient Analyze database, ready and waiting. All their configuration contained within just a few dozen kilobytes.
Once migration roaming becomes available, it is a simple task to turn it on for the set of users you desire. From then on, during any first-time start of Nomad Web, panagenda’s roaming technology will be able to locate their latest uploaded roaming set and automatically carry it over into Nomad. Et voilà!
Make Sure You’re Ready
Before switching all your users from Notes clients to Nomad Web, you should consider a few things:
- Check that your applications do not require functionality that is unsupported on Nomad Web, such as client-side support for Java, XPages, and OLE objects. E.g. pangenda iDNA Applications can analyze your applications for you.
- Make sure that you have ID Vault set up, as it is required for Nomad Web to work.
- You need the latest version of the Nomad Server up and running, Nomad Web cannot access Domino servers directly
