This week I had the pleasure to be part of Engage 2020 , the biggest European user group related to HCL Digital solution software (Domino,Sametime,Connections,Dx) that has been in Arnhem (NL) with more than 400 peoples..
For the first time I had also the honor the be in a booth because Factor-y was one of the event sponsors.
We have presented our cloud solution, proposed as the future of IBM Smartcloud in quality of HCL MSP certified provider.
Quick recap :
HCL: the keyword is "Evolve". HCL has started the evolution of the whole DS portfolio to be able to collaborate and empower the customer's business. HCL is also investing in R&D and it's hiring peoples all over the world. I like to highlight the come back in the family of Luis Guirigay hired as "Senior Global Director"!
Domino e Sametime: during July 2020 will be released the Progressive web app (PWA) of Verse 2.0 and Sametime, that will runs on Win, Mac and Linux!!
During the second part of the year the new Sametime Meeting will be available too.
Connections : the keyword it's integration with all the principal production tools.
A fantastic example could be the MS Teams integrations that will be released with Connections 6.5 CR2. We have also seen some screenshot and anticipation of Connections 7.0 who will runs entirely into Kubernetes.
I like to reuse the motto "The future is Bright" because it was never true like in this moment!
I strongly suggest you to check the twitter feed to see slides and comments from the conference..
Congrats to the Engage team that have made another time an exceptional job, finding a beautiful location and has provided all kind of support needed: THANKS!
Last but not least, below you could see the presentation deck of the session I run with my mate, Wannes Rams from ISW and my colleague in the LetsConnect Team.
