Introducing Domino V14 with Andrew Manby and Kris De Bisschop
Ever wonder what happens when GroupWave, the Domino platform’s biggest fans, get a chance to chat with Andrew Manby, Head of Product Management at HCL Software? Get ready, because we’re about to dive headfirst into the world of HCL Domino v14 – the latest and greatest version of a platform that’s been revolutionizing collaboration for ages. Together with Kris De Bisschop, GroupWave Managing Partner, we’re set to uncover all the exciting details about v14. Let’s dive in and uncover the innovations that await within Domino v14!
Staying Ahead with Futureproofing
The foundation of any software’s longevity is its ability to stay current and relevant in a rapidly changing technological landscape. “We made a commitment to the Domino community, and our regular release cadence is a big part of that,” Andrew Manby highlighted. This regularity ensures that users benefit from up-to-date technologies, enhanced security, and improved performance.
One of the standout features of Domino v14 is the modernisation of the underlying compilers, like JVM, which contributes to its futureproofing. Kris De Bisschop commented, “This version’s integration of modern technologies ensures that Domino remains a formidable player in the collaboration arena, adapting seamlessly to new advancements.”
Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
For any business, cost-effectiveness is a crucial consideration. Domino v14 addresses this by delivering a reduced Total Cost of Ownership. With the new version, administrators are promptly notified about available updates, ensuring that the platform remains secure and optimized. This proactive approach not only saves time but also minimizes potential vulnerabilities.
Furthermore, the new administration interface is a game-changer, especially for cloud deployments. “Domino’s shift towards the cloud has been years in the making, and the updated admin interface streamlines the process, making it seamless and efficient,” noted Andrew Manby. The modernized admin interface caters to the evolving needs of cloud-based collaborations.
Security and Collaboration: Uniting Strengths
In the dynamic world of business software, few platforms boast the kind of endurance that HCL Domino applications have demonstrated over the years. These applications keep the wheels turning, ensuring business processes flow smoothly day in and day out. However, this longevity brings about a unique challenge – convincing businesses to upgrade in the face of applications that seem to function flawlessly. To shed light on this critical issue, we turned to Andrew Manby, Head of Product Management at HCL Software.
Andrew Manby, a key figure behind the development of HCL Domino v14, pointed out, “Domino applications can run for years without issues, but the underlying platforms get outdated and form a security risk.” This statement encapsulates a dilemma faced by many businesses: the applications are robust and dependable, but the security landscape changes constantly. While the Domino applications remain stable, the technology ecosystem surrounding them evolves, potentially leaving vulnerabilities in their wake.
The challenge is further compounded by the fact that the companies using these applications have grown accustomed to their reliability. Kris De Bisschop, Managing Partner of GroupWave, noted, “Domino applications are so robust that many companies don’t see the need to upgrade.” This level of trust in the existing applications is a testament to their resilience and the skill with which they were built.
The HCL Domino v14 release addresses this paradox by introducing security enhancements that bridge the gap between the longevity of Domino applications and the evolving security landscape. By staying committed to a regular release cadence, HCL ensures that these applications remain up to date not only in terms of performance and features but also in terms of security.
Integration and Compatibility for Tomorrow
Integration is a buzzword in today’s tech landscape, and Domino v14 understands its significance more than ever. Kris De Bisschop shared, “Integration is very important for Domino today. Technologies like Volt MX Go ensure compatibility with low-code platforms like Mendix.” This underscores the platform’s commitment to fostering seamless collaboration across diverse tools and technologies.
Additionally, Domino v14’s readiness for the cloud has been years in the making. “Domino has been container-native for quite some time now,” Andrew Manby stated. This forward-looking approach ensures that businesses can transition smoothly to cloud-based environments, reaping the benefits of scalability, accessibility, and efficiency.
A Testament to Commitment
Summing up, Andrew Manby acknowledged, “Domino is the largest investment HCL makes, bar none, which is a testament to HCL’s commitment to Domino.” Domino v14 is more than just an upgrade; it’s a reaffirmation of HCL’s dedication to fostering collaboration in the modern business landscape.
As Kris De Bisschop puts it, “Migration is easy when supported by an experienced partner like GroupWave.” With the GroupWave team’s expertise, transitioning to Domino v14 becomes a seamless experience, ensuring that businesses can take full advantage of its innovative features without disruption.
In conclusion, Domino v14 stands at the crossroads of collaboration, security, and futureproofing. With its regular release cadence, focus on integration, and commitment to staying current, HCL has once again raised the bar for collaborative platforms. As GroupWave, we’re excited to partner with HCL in this journey, ensuring that businesses can harness the power of Domino v14 to drive productivity, innovation, and success.
