In this workshop we will demonstrate the power of teamWorkr and show you how to BOOST and BEAUTIFY existing Domino Application.
We would like to use an interactive format for the first time. We will not tell you boring theory, instead we will perform the modernization in front of your eyes. Don't worry, we do all the work…
We modernize and all participants can follow the results live on any device from anywhere in the world. After we have shown all the basic functions we move on to the most exciting part of the workshop.
You ask, we deliver! Tell us your expectations and requirements and we will carry them out. No tricks, no illusion – just teamWorkr.

HCL has developed an updated license model for all Domino use cases going forward - the CCB: HCL Domino Complete Collaboration Business model.
CCB is a simple “Per User everything model” - use any client and any protocol for any server capacity to run any application – including enterprise e-mail (HCL Verse).
And a simple add-on principle for HCL Domino Volt, HCL Sametime Premium, etc.
CCB provides transparent compliance management by simple user counting and eliminate the need for server capacity (PVU) license management by including Guest users and a new External User license.
We will discuss your immediate or longer term advantages of a CCB transition from current licensing.
Verse on Premises has been touted by HCL as the future of email. And, with the upcoming release of Notes and Domino 12 in 2021 iNotes will be officially deprecated. This session will cover the new features in 2.0, how to deploy VoP and best practices for a successful and secure system.
This session provides first hand information about security features in Domino V12. Some of them you can already try yourself in the current Early Access program.
One special focus feature is the completely new certificate management functionality integrating with Let's Encrypt and other Certificate Authorities.
The demos included will also show how this functionality can be used to simplify Domino web server certificate management today.

Gain access to the best and latest Notes client management knowledge, combined with more than 16 years of experience with Notes client upgrades to get the fastest and most stable IBM Notes 11.0.1 FP2 client ever.
Do you know the game "How might we"? We, that is panagenda and Team Technology, played this game on the fringe of a tech conference. The challenge was clear: What would a Game Changer be in the context of HCL Notes / Domino App Analytics and Modernization? You can best imagine the result of our session with one simple thought: At the end of an in-depth analysis of your HCL Notes / Domino applications the central result is a ready-to-use application and not longer data and many colorful charts on a dashboard or PowerPoint slide as before… The new, common formula for success & speed in modernization is: "Analyze > Deploy > Test > Optimize". This process enables you to get immediate user feedback in order to better understand what concrete requirements a user has on a mobile device. The central challenge today is to provide up-to-date mobile applications and not simply to transfer the old-fashioned desktop interface & business logic to a mobile device 1-to-1.
Virtualizing HCL Notes 11.0.1 FP2 (incl. Language Packs, Fix Packs, Connections Plugins for Notes and more) is an effective way to standardize your Notes client infrastructure, reduce costs for workstation hardware and give your users a consistent experience. In this session, you will learn how to implement, configure and tune HCL Notes 11.0.1 FP2 on platforms like Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop and get the most out of it by dramatically reducing start-up times (up to 70%), bringing a much better performance and increasing the stability into the Notes client. Beside a live demo on what we call “The Workspace (folder) Improvement” you'll also get some worst practices stories as Chris shares his experiences from real-world client virtualization projects, how these stories can help you and a detailed recipe on ”How to run the Installation and initial configuration of Notes in the best possible way for your very own infrastructure”.
Customer demands, that web-application should not "freeze" so often. Why is it freezing? Is it, really? How to find out what should be optimized. To speed-up some workflow application system based on HCL/Domino, engineers from Growth Tactics questioned themselves - how to properly gather web-application perfomance? To solve this problem, we have chosen an open source software - Elastic Stack and HAProxy. In this session we want to share our experinece: what problem did we faced and how did we achieve some success (with configs!). Join us in our experiment!

So working with the organizations of the event CYONE and the other company that's very Russian and I can't pronounce their name has been really straightforward and easy. The event organizers have done a fantastic job. It's been a pleasure to be here to be looked after so well by the team.
Event Day 2, it's busy here in the sponsor Hall and it's just a great place to be. It's been so well done. Thank you very much guys.

So the future looks bright for this portfolio and we're having more customers come back to it, and as we further innovate with it the future of using Domino is now secure in HCL's hands so get to know Domino again get to know HCL we're here to help. Work with us, work with our partners, and let's do some great business together in Russia!
I think it was an amazing event an amazing venue considering it's the first time it's being organized. I think the organization team deserves an incredible round of applause. I think “CYONE” and “growth tactics”. By doing this they've put the collaboration solutions back on the market in Russia and it can only grow and get better.
I really like these two days in the this fantastic event hall we are at in and also meeting all these new people that I haven't met before and talking to them and how. market in Russia and how you work here, it's super interesting and I'm very very happy that I'm here.
