ROBUST SUPPORT FOR YOUR DOMINO ENVIRONMENT – MIGRATE AT YOUR OWN PACE, IN YOUR OWN WAY

If you’re like a lot of companies, HCL Domino is intrinsic to your business processes. Its low-code infrastructure has long allowed business users and IT teams to create, test, deploy and manage 100s of applications – from databases to user directories to email servers.

But with the shift toward cloud, support for Domino installations is waning, and with it goes the deep expertise you need to securely migrate products to the cloud. Organizations are finding it hard to consider Domino a strategic technology platform going forward.

Enterprise HCL Domino users are faced with having to either extend, migrate –or retire– Domino-based applications which are vital to business continuity. Tough decision.

But what if you could keep it up and healthy without the business risk and expense associated with maintaining the platform’s interoperability with other elements of the enterprise stack?

This is exactly what we help you do at Origina.

FAQ | HCL DOMINO

Gartner enthusiastically recommends third-party support for companies that want more flexibility than OEM’s provide and are trying to find ways to free up resources for modernization projects.

TPSM shifts you from relying on a single point of vendor support that may or may not deliver a security patch months later, to having a team of experts that implement an extensive system of checks and balances to greatly limit your exposure to vulnerabilities.

In fact, 80% of IT and procurement leaders who are already using TPSM say they would recommend it to their peers.

It’s actually highly likely you don’t need upgrades – unless you are certain that a particular upgrade will bring a critical new feature that will truly add value to the way the organization utilizes the application. And given the maturity of enterprise software, that’s highly unlikely.

Chances are you’ve been running on old versions with no problem for a while. In fact, over 60% of Origina customers were 3 or more versions behind on upgrades when they came to us.

Origina actually enhances the security and operability of your existing IBM investments without requiring that you rush over to the cloud. Our approach is threefold:

PROTECT your existing IBM investments with preventative actions that address possible threats and vulnerabilities or potential misconfigurations.

EXTEND the longevity and lifecycle of your IBM estate with proactive health checks and workshops delivered by IBM software product and licensing experts.

ENHANCE the performance and functionality of your architecture by using scripts, open APIs, and API hooks to bring you custom feature enhancements that don’t infringe on vendor copyrights.

And if you do choose to upgrade your IBM products at any time while working with Origina, we don’t mind at all. We’re flexible and support you unconditionally – regardless of product, license or vendor contract.

WE KNOW ALL THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT HCL DOMINO

Our Global IBM product experts have been working with HCL Domino for decades – some even contributed to its original code. We’ve followed the platform from its origins to what it is now.

HCL Domino is an enterprise  server  application development platform that can be used for many types of business applications. It is the foundation for a complete collaborative solution. It provides a low-code infrastructure that allows business users and IT teams to create, test, deploy and manage applications such as application servers, security, databases, user directories, instant messaging, connectivity, web servers, email servers, calendaring engine, and more.

Initially called Lotus Notes Server, HCL Domino was the server component of Lotus Development Corporation’s client-server messaging technology. HCL Domino, formerly called IBM Domino (1995) and Lotus Domino (1989), was sold by IBM to HCL.

In 2019, HCL Technologies (HCL) acquired several IBM software products, including Lotus Notes and Domino. The agreement, under which HCL would acquire selected IBM software products for $1.8 billion, was closed in July 2019. At this time, HCL also announced the introduction of HCL Software, a division to operate the enterprise software business, which includes several products acquired from IBM.

“We’re getting more than we ever did with IBM! Origina helped us to understand and transform our digital estate, and saved us between 40 and 50 percent off our annual IBM software support and maintenance costs.”
