IBM signs strategic partnership with HCL Technologies to increase commitment and deliver major release in 2018 

To continue innovation in the collaboration space, IBM is investing in its long-term roadmap of the Domino product family – Domino, Notes, Sametime and Verse – in 2018 and beyond. To show IBM’s level of commitment to stakeholders, the company is entering into a strategic partnership with HCL Technologies to begin delivering on the roadmap with the intent to release version 10 of the Domino portfolio next year. The goal of the partnership is to drive future development of the Domino product family, energize the offering, and protect clients’ investments.

As a component of the partnership, IBM and HCL are unveiling the Domino 2025 Jam to gather feedback and suggestions that will shape the future of this portfolio. Activities such as interactive face-to-face workshops in select cities worldwide, virtual events that drive broad participation, and user group events and “pop-up” meetings on-demand will be part of the Domino 2025 program. These community engagements are intended to help increase client and lab advocacy and serve as a way for groups to provide feedback on feature updates and the future direction of the Domino product family.

Additionally, both companies will work together to maintain continuity and avoid disruption to existing client relationships, support and sales processes. IBM customers and business partners will continue to engage with IBM as they have previously – and they will continue to have the ability to operate their Domino, Notes, Sametime and Verse investments for their businesses via on-premises, hybrid cloud, or public cloud offerings.

To all of our various stakeholders, we thank you for being part of our journey, and look forward to bringing you exciting new innovations and opportunities to expand and enhance your operations globally. Together, let’s get started on IBM’s Domino and Notes roadmap for 2018 and beyond.
