You can quickly bring stakeholders together to break through barriers in real time. New integrations include connecting to Microsoft Teams with web-enabled HCL Domino apps, as well as joining HCL Sametime meetings on mobile using a simple QR code. This will let you solve problems faster with persistent chat and meetings, in the context of the app.
There will be zero-footprint apps on the browser – HCL Nomad Web — plus more languages supported at launch compared to v10 and v11, with additional languages to follow in 12.0.1. And, as we evolve, we are building to be extensible with open standards. With Nomad web access, it’s the fastest deployment, upgrade, and startup — ever. And with Nomad web assembly, there’s no need to manage the desktop anymore.
You will be more mobile than ever. You can access HCL Domino apps from a mobile device securely — and take advantage of native mobile features with Nomad. And we will introduce face ID/biometric sign-in.
For admins, there are also some exciting improvements: Active directory password sync, two-factor authentication, and one file Domino configuration. Also for developers: New mobile capabilities, icons, view list styling options, field types, etc., plus Bootstrap 4.
HCL Verse integrations mean you can deliver enterprise-secure, mobile- and browser-based email and calendar, while keeping costs for IT resources and software in check. For those who prefer to use HCL Notes, it will have an enhanced user experience which includes workspace improvements and even a new Notes logo. It also has enhanced search and starts up faster.
