HCL Connections Review

Feature rich, fully integrated secure mobile communication solution

Valuable Features

Fully integrated solution, love the social element of Profiles, Files and Activities all securely accessed on Mobile !

Improvements to My Organization

Communities of practise have gained value in communicating and sharing knowledge and improving processes using e.g. Wikis

Room for Improvement

Interface, but that has had some make-over in v.5 which has now been released. Portal can complement the UI if needed I guess. Licensing !!

Use of Solution

3 years

Deployment Issues

It's a complicated setup, but then again it's built for enterprise and volumes. Adoption is always going to be a challenge, changing the way people work. So many people are still stuck in the email paradigm. Deployment is unique per organisation.

Stability Issues

No, but some minor browser related issues especially with Microsoft IE.

Scalability Issues


Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service: Business Partners like ourselves often run with this task. Logging of PMR's can be a lengthy bothersome processTechnical Support: Hard to say, don't often deal with technical support as mentioned, we're a Business Partner and often provide this service.

Previous Solutions
