From its inception, the HCL Connections collaboration suite was built around the central premise of openness and discoverability. This was specifically done to ensure that content and expertise needed to collaborate effectively with other team members is easily discoverable. Information silos, on the other hand, disrupt and slow down collaboration. Eighty percent of companies in a recent survey reported a moderate to high degree of information silos within the organizations. Silos impede employee efficiency and can negatively impact both the top line and the bottom line of a company’s financials.
When it comes to advanced tech solutions, it’s ultimately worth enterprise organizations’ time and resources to invest in a low code app dev platform that offers the control, flexibility, and scalability required. In order to make the most of digital transformation efforts, one thing is clear: More enterprise leaders need to embrace buying rather than building to make sure their digital transformation and consumer experiences are scalable and competitive.
Access to the program is decided annually following a nomination and judging process. These typically take place in October and November, with the announcement of the next year’s HCL Ambassadors in December.
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.
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.
While the benefits are getting to cloud are compelling, organizations require flexibility in their cloud journey to minimize the challenges inherent in migrating mission critical workloads to the cloud. Migrating to a public or private cloud can take a lot of time, money and development resources. With HCL Digital Experience’s new hybrid cloud support organizations can exploit the benefits of cloud, maximize the value from their existing on-premise deployment and future proof their digital experience investment.

To digitize business critical experiences, you need not only flexibility, security and power, but also the ability for your business users to create engaging content. HCL recently released exciting new capabilities to its platform, that helps empower users to create compelling experiences, improving the bottom line and customer satisfaction. We interviewed the person behind the constant development, iteration, and improvements to HCL Digital Experience to get the inside scoop on the latest updates in the latest release, as well as a window into what is coming soon. In June, we released a reinvented Content Composer and a new (free) Digital Asset Management (DAM) capability. You can learn about all of that by watching this video: We talked to David to find out what’s been added since. Q: What do new rendering and versioning capabilities mean for content creators? A: When an image is added, the tool now auto-generates multiple renderings suitable for each of the universal screen sizes and device dimensions of desktops, tablets, and smart phones — saving time and improving accuracy. Also, the version history of each image is now preserved, letting you revert back to previous versions as needed. These capabilities were added to the DAM in our July release and there's more to come in the August and September releases too, including the addition of versioning support in Content Composer. Q: How is media (images and video) now managed in the DAM? A: Media is stored in collections (which act as folders), and these collections can be nested. Collections have assigned role-based access and permissions so access to the media can be controlled on a collection-by-collection basis. Media is usually published via content, so the workflow is handled at the content level. DX content management leverages the renditions so your content will look great on all devices. Q: Is it easier to search and find assets in the DAM? Is metadata stored? A: Yes. You can search by title, date and metadata. Basic metadata is automatically added, but you can and should add additional, more robust and descriptive metadata to boost SEO, as well as store rights information, photographer or videographer credits, and make finding assets even easier. Q: How is this native DAM better than others out there? A: Well, for one...
