From the very beginning, there has been strong intent for HCL Software (formally HCL Products and Platforms) to be a key player in open source — for us to be involved in external communities as participants, contributors, and leaders. As strong as that intent has been it has taken us time to build our internal communities, training programs, and means of prioritization so that we at HCL Software could contribute in a consistent and sustainable way. Well, that time has arrived. 

HCL Software’s OSPO (open-source project office) has approved our participation with the Jitsi community. This long-standing community is dedicated to an open and modern meeting environment with technology that challenges many of the existing proprietary tools. We will be over the coming weeks and months submitting fixes and new features that we have developed while building our chat and meetings solution, HCL Sametime Premium. We are also working with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and OpenNTF

The value of an open-source community can be immeasurable at times.  We have all seen this with examples like the Apache Software Foundation or Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and how passionate communities and developers can make amazing innovations to technology that truly makes a difference.  These are the types of communities we at HCL Software want to contribute to on an ongoing and consistent basis. 

For our own customers, new samples are being published on our new HCL Software public github.com repository that demonstrate capabilities or provide simple tooling for HCL Software’s products including samples for the HCL Domino AppDev Pack and soon some of our product documentation. 

We are firmly committed to expanding our participation in other open-source communities and industry consortiums. HCL Software will be a leader in the open-source movement with growing contributions and participation over the coming months and years. This will allow us to dramatically increase our velocity in features and functions and will result in higher quality products for our customers and partners. But even more importantly, it will enable our customers and partners to work with us in a more transparent and productive way.

Digital Week 2020: Oh, What a Week It Was!
Something big just happened. And it was amazing. Our very first truly digital mega event, Digital Week 2020, just wrapped in the Americas and EMEA. For those of us who joined us live, we hope you felt as invigorated and inspired as we did. We had 2,225 people sign up to participate. We had 75+ unique sessions of content — from thought-leading discussions with analysts and influencers to zippy, quick tech roundtables and coffee chats. We covered a wide range of topics, trends, and technologies.   We had more attendees at our keynotes — and more meetings and conversations — than ever before. Dion Hinchcliffe (from Constellation Research) and Wayne Kurtzman (from IDC) both signalled to the market that we are a low-code powerhouse. We had major product releases — including the world premiere of our new game-changer, HCL Volt MX (that session had more than 500 attendees to show up for this blockbuster news). In addition, we launched new, exciting versions of HCL Digital Experience, HCL Sametime Premium, HCL Connections v7, and gave a preview of HCL Domino v12 and our vision for the future of the digital office.  For data geeks, check this out: We had 2+ terabytes and 35 hours of content — plus almost 50 hours of breakout HCL Sametime meeting rooms. Oh, and only 5 instances of “can you hear me?,” 7 of “is this on?” and 27 of “you’re on mute.” Plus 11,250 beverages were consumed at the coffee chats and happy hours. And ZERO miles were traveled. Watch this video, which captures the buzz and energy perfectly.   Thank you for joining us. You helped us achieve bigger conversations, bigger sessions, and bigger releases. Thank you for making our first truly digital event as possible and powerful as it was — and we have another great lineup for the first week in December for our customers, partners, and friends in APJ.    We are poised and ready...
