Best Practices for Upgrading to v11: Webinar Replay and Q&A
Last week, our team of global support advisors hosted a webinar on best practices for upgrading to Domino v11. If you missed the webinar, feel free to watch the replay here. In this session, we covered several topics on how to prepare for a successful upgrade including: Baseline monitoring: Know your current workloads   Evaluating your environment: Should you upgrade in-place, or do you need new hardware? Deployment sequence: See the order of steps to upgrade your environment  Preparing your environment: What to do before your upgrade  Application upgrades: Learn how to handle your custom apps    We received a lot of questions during the webinar and you can find the Q&A recap below.    Want to learn more about what’s new in Domino v11 before planning your upgrade? Download this deep dive to see newest features. For our technical folks, check out this support article which provides a guide on how to plan your upgrade and a step-by-step guide for Domino install, setup, and upgrade tasks.   Q: Regarding Notes.ini, are there any tools we can use to check the values used in our Notes.ini to identify redundant ones?    A: DCT would be a good place to start, however there is no such tool available for the same. DCT will not detect duplicates. It is a best practice to start with a new notes.ini file.  Q: Can we get a list of Notes.ini obsolete parameters?  A: We are working on a consolidated article and will be publishing it soon.  Q: Is there a URL for recommend new Notes.ini settings to help weed out old Notes.ini settings?  A: Starting with a new Notes.ini file is the best way to ensure your file does not contain outdated settings.   Q: Can we have a mix of both Domino 9 for applications and Domino 11 for email servers?  A: Yes, you can upgrade your mail servers to version 11 now, and the application servers can remain at Domino 9.0.1. As mentioned, make sure that you are not mixing Domino versions in a cluster. Use a test pilot to see how well your Domino 9.0.1 applications work in the Notes 11 client.  Q: Is...

Low and Behold: Why Low Code Development Matters. Insights into a modern way to build applications
Low code is a software development platform that gives non-coders and coders alike the chance to develop applications through visual interfaces instead of traditional hand-coded programming.   In plain English, it’s the power to create processes without the technical experience or hand coding background application development once needed.  (It’s like suddenly being able to sing, dance, and generally dominate like Beyoncé without having to undergo 25+ years of endless practice and constant performing.)    Comparing application development to pop stardom may not be the most common way to highlight the potential benefits of low code. But by not requiring a background in coding expertise, low code allows a wider audience to create applications, making for a faster and potentially more innovative environment that companies can benefit from. (It’s like turning lemonade into even better lemonade. Ok that’s the final reference to Queen B, promise). But we’re just getting started diving into the upside of low code. Develop Business Software at Incredible Speeds Low code development should be fast.    Unlike the laborious line-by-line hand coding process that is traditionally associated with software programming, low code can go from concept to reality in a flash.  Low code allows developers to execute apps up to 60-70% faster than handwritten code, bypassing the time-consuming steps of repeatedly writing, testing and debugging code until it works correctly.  Low-code development can give designers drag-and-drop features through a visual user interface, making it easy to build intuitively while cutting down on complicated obstacles that only expert coders can spot and fix.  By making the process more visual and less repetitive, low code brings a newfound velocity to a typically slow undertaking.   Increase Enterprise Productivity  When you increase the speed of app building, and you save designers and developers time, you open new space up for productivity throughout the entire enterprise. But it’s not only the efficiencies that companies benefit from.  Those closest to a problem can fix it without a drawn-out drama that drains weeks of time and energy from the IT department. Solving...

The Art of the Possible with HCL Domino Volt
We recently hosted our first HCL Domino Volt roundtable session, a series where we introduce HCL Domino Volt topics and host open discussions with our customers and partners. In this session, we covered several use cases for Domino Volt apps. We focused on visually enhancing out-of-the-box components with pure CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) and JavaScript. If you missed the live session, you can catch the replay here or read the recap below. Domino today is used by over 15,000 customers globally to develop applications that run their business. With the introduction of Domino Volt, our mission was not only to protect the investment of our Domino customers but also accelerate their ability to deliver business solutions faster and increase the value of Domino. By providing our customers and partner with new application development capabilities that extend throughout the organization, we empower everyone to build solutions while still taking advantage of Domino’s security, reliability and low TCO.  In just 3 months since our launch, over 80 new customers have taken advantage of Domino Volt to accelerate their delivery of applications to the business. Here at HCL, we believe in drinking our own Champagne (or "dogfooding" as the software industry calls it.) We recently launched an internal hackathon to see if our team could build apps to solve our business challenges as well as other real-world challenges facing our customers or community. More than 20 teams with more than 50 members across the globe participated, and none had prior Domino Volt experience! Some of the submissions were from sales team members who had no development experience at all. They were only given two weeks to design, develop, test, and deliver their apps — on top of their day jobs! We were thoroughly impressed with the apps submitted. Using CSS, the teams got...
