We are deeply invested in the future of Domino, since it continues to be the underlying platform powering core business processes around the globe — for airlines, banks, health-care organizations, and governments. In the past two years, we have delivered two exciting new Domino releases that include new features aimed at improving our software’s usability, as well as important security updates. Our latest release — v12 — has been well-received and many customers have already upgraded. Given our customer’s positive response, we are announcing the end of marketing and support for two of our older releases.
End of Marketing (EOM) and End of Support (EOS) for Domino and Notes v9.0.x and v10.0.x
We announce today the EOM and EOS for Domino and Notes v9.0.x and v10.0.x effective December 1, 2022 (EOM), and June 1, 2024 (EOS). We wanted to provide ample time for our customers to prepare.
What Does This Mean for You, as a Domino Customer?
- End of Marketing (EOM) – HCL ceases selling the specific product versions in this announcement and removes them from the HCL FlexNet software download site effective December 1, 2022. This allows our existing customers to download versions 9.0.x and 10.0.x before December 1, 2022, if desired.
- End of Support (EOS) – HCL ceases support for the specific product versions in this announcement effective June 1, 2024. Customers should deploy a more recent software version.
- No extended support will be offered for the specific product versions listed in this announcement.
To support your transition, our sales and technical support teams are here to address your questions and help you set up an upgrade plan. For help, contact your local HCL partner or contact us directly.
Get Started with Your Upgrade Planning
Existing customers will have the option to upgrade to Domino v12.0.1 and all affected customers are encouraged to make this transition. To provide you with more information and additional resources about upgrading Domino, you can browse our Domino Upgrade Webpage.
Upgrading your software allows you to leverage the full value of our extensive new feature set and the latest in mobile and web app development to improve workflow management. Our latest Domino v12 software reduces your security risks, helps protect your data and ensures compatibility with other updated technologies. And, most importantly, it supports innovation to help you stay ahead of the competition.
We know that some customers could want to consider other HCL options to deliver low-code functionality. We recently announced the launch of Volt MX Go, which combines the power of our multiexperience low-code platform, Volt MX, and Domino. Volt MX Go enables you to extend your skills and investments in your Domino apps and transform them into exceptional mobile, web, and even wearable experiences. Volt MX can also be deployed as a stand-alone solution if desired. Contact us to learn more.
Upgrading Domino is direct, fast, and easy. You can also deploy your Domino environment wherever you want – on-prem, hybrid or cloud — with cloud-native capabilities. Let’s do this together! Start your upgrade planning today.
