  5. One-click deployment: Easily deploy mail and applications with just one click from any browser. This eliminates the need to upgrade desktop client applications, saving time and resources.

With the end of support for Domino/Notes v9, v10 fast approaching, it’s important for customers to plan their upgrade to Domino v12, not only to provide the latest features and improvements but also to ensure that your business is secure and compliant.

HCLSoftware’s White Glove Upgrade Services can help make the upgrade process smooth and efficient. Our team of experts can handle the entire upgrade process, from planning to execution and monitoring.

Here are some additional benefits of using HCL’s White Glove Upgrade Services:

A thorough review of your platform
HCL Advisor is a useful tool for customers who are interested in reducing the total cost of ownership, consolidating servers, and upgrading to the latest HCL Domino version while modernizing their environment. By providing insight into applications, compatibility, usage, modernization effort and remediation needed, HCL Advisor can help customers make informed decisions about their environment.

With HCL Advisor, customers can effectively identify outdated applications or processes that are no longer being used, allowing them to focus on modernization efforts where it matters most. Additionally, it can help customers optimize their infrastructure by consolidating servers based on usage, enabling them to save costs while maintaining high performance.

Moreover, HCL Advisor can help customers with their upgrade planning process. It can provide information on the compatibility of their existing applications and processes with HCL Domino v12, allowing them to plan for an upgrade with greater confidence.

No more rip and replace strategies
At HCL, we are always looking for ways to drive customer value. Consolidation can be an effective way to improve service delivery to end users while decreasing the total cost of ownership of a Domino environment. With product enhancements in Domino and improved cloud computing power, customers can better size their environments with their end users in mind, enabling them to get application servers closer to their end users while needing fewer of them.

Domino continues to provide industry-leading backwards compatibility, allowing customers to upgrade and consolidate applications at a faster rate than ever before, without the need for rip-and-replace strategies. This helps customers leverage the investments they have already made into their Domino applications while modernizing their environment.

Keeping end user operational capability and uptime a priority
As with any upgrade that happens within an organization, it is important to prioritize end-user experience during the process. To minimize user impact, it’s important to take a comprehensive approach that spans from the analysis phase to the cutover phase. From our experience, we have found that several best practices help to eliminate upgrade disruption, minimizing user impact such as:

  • Comprehensive end-user communication about the upgrade process and expected changes
  • Providing end-user training and support to ensure that they are familiar with the new features and functionality
  • Testing the new software with a pilot group of end-users to gather feedback and identify any issues
  • Providing help desk and support services during and after the upgrade to address user queries and issues that may arise.

In addition to our best practices, we can also deploy HCL Nomad Web to allow users unrestricted access to traditional Notes applications via a web browser. This can be a great solution as it eliminates the costly need to customize the application.

Getting to the finish line together
Once you’ve upgraded to Domino v12, we highly recommend ensuring that you have all the new features required to properly run your environment. Our team of experts is available to assist you with documented steps and post-deployment assistance, known as the HCL Domino Upgrade Factory.

The HCL Domino Upgrade Factory provides a simple, low-cost pricing model for customers who need help upgrading their Domino environments, starting from as little as $4000 per server. Here are a few of the steps that are included in the HCL Domino Upgrade Factory offering:

  • Complete analysis of your Domino environment including applications and servers.

  • Development of cutover strategy for users.

  • 30 days of post-upgrade hyper care for all servers.
