The Domino and Sametime Global Launch – What an Amazing Event!
The Domino Dozen
We kicked everything off with a powerful testament to the staying power of Domino, how it powers the Fortune 500 (think Vanguard, LG, and Dun & Broadstreet, among others) and how it’s built for the future. Domino v12: Cloud-native. Low code for everyone. Web- and mobile-ready. The world is (still): Powered by Domino.
Launch day was one for the books.
If you upgrade to v12 and/or add Domino Volt licensing within 12 weeks post launch, you can get Nomad web enabled and your first Domino Volt app built by HCL Digital Solutions Lab Services for free.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes snapshots from that shoot. We filmed this with a group of improv comedy actors in an abandoned office overnight in downtown Manhattan. It was fun! It definitely demonstrates how Domino has outlasted — and out beat — the competition for more than 30 years. And how Domino has the staying power to truly be #dominoforever.
And about that fun, quirky video…

This was a great presentation around the state of the state with the digital workplace, and what CIOs need to consider and conquer to stay competitive and their organizations future-built. We partnered with Chris Marsh from 451 to add some broad, market-trend views. HCL’s Andrew Manby delivered an introduction to the new Sametime — and how it fits in beautifully — to both remote and global work, and our digital transformation initiatives.

Dion Hinchcliffe did a typical standup job walking us through what our digital future will look like, what blockers CIOs are facing, new market signals, and why Domino is a key part of the engine that drives digital transformation.

There was a customer dialog about how Biopappel uses Domino to power the apps that run their business, and how they’ve expanded its use within the organization. HCL’s Luis Guirigay and Tiffany Amos walked us through a few really cool demos that show — once again — how flexible and modern Domino can be.

We had hundreds of comments and a VERY active chat during the entire live launch event. Despite a few technical difficulties (a couple of presenters had their wifi go down, and we had a hot mic for a few seconds), we think the content was strong, and the engagement exciting. We had more than 4,000 registrants, and more than 1,000 attendees on concurrently and at different times throughout the day. We’ll be creating articles that address some of the best questions, so that everyone can benefit. Here are a few of our favorites from the live day.
The Launch Live Chat Was on Fire!
Twitter was super active, of course, on launch day and after. #dominoforever trended on Twitter, lots of people celebrated their early registration cocktail gifts, and we had thousands of engagements, retweets, and visits. Thank you!
Here are a few of our favorite tweets:
Celebrating and Sharing
We also unrolled the “Domino Dozen” — 12 days of exciting Domino and Sametime content, including panel discussions with customers, demos, new apps, articles and more. These new content drops were hosted on the live event platform and are now visible for anyone here.
