Stable with good security and great integration capabilities

What is our primary use case?

We have developed 100 plus applications on this platform. For instance, the entire HR solution is built on that solution. Our HR management system is on Notes and Domino. The leave management system in Notes and Domino as well as the employee attendance system, performance reviews, and the reimbursement management system. Any area of HR and sub-service of employees is developed on Notes and Domino. We have developed some sort of interface with the procurement management system that is eventually integrated with Oracle Financials. There are so many other processes of our core banking system… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The pricing is excellent."
  • "Recently, IBM sold the product to HCL. Since Pakistan and India have some problems on a domestic level, we were actually considering replacing it with Indian products from the organization. We're just facing some regulatory issues."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers and end-users. We have not received the approvals to upgrade the solution on 11, which is why we are still using the last version released by IBM. I'd rate the solution at a ten out of ten. I've been extremely happy with its capabilities.

Pros and Cons

What other advice do I have?

If you're interested in using this solution, be sure to take a look at the Domino trial version first. It covers all of the new features which is very useful. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine.

Feature-rich, stable, easy to scale, with good support

What is our primary use case?

This is an enterprise email solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "They offer good support and provide a roadmap."
  • "When you compare with Microsoft Exchange, the UI could be more user-friendly."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution with tier support. When we started with IMB in the latter part of the journey, there were some issues with the support. With HCL, we receive good support. I have not used the newest version yet and don't know what is being offered or what has changed. I would rate HCL Domino an eight out of ten.
