Announcing the IBM Domino V10 portfolio beta program: Sign up today
Thank you for being with us on the #domino2025 journey.
Back in October 2017, when we announced the renewed and dedicated investment in the Domino portfolio, we wanted to be sure there was demonstrable progress with delivering V10 to market in 2018—and clear communication about the road map for the future.
Today we are announcing the next step in our journey: the IBM Domino V10 Portfolio Beta program. We know for many of you in the community, this represents a major milestone and something for which you’ve been eagerly awaiting.
The beta program will be rolled out in two phases:
What you can test in Beta 1:
– Domino (Windows)
– Notes client (Windows)
– Notes, Designer & Admin clients (Windows)
This beta is English-only.
Beta 2: We will extend the initial group of Beta 1 participants as we get further along in the development cycle for Domino V10, by including additional participants at the Beta 2 stage. We expect the Beta 2 phase to begin the second half of July 2018. Submissions received up to July 15th, for those not included in the Beta 1 group, will be considered for inclusion in the Beta 2 phase.
What you can test in Beta 2:
– Domino (Windows and Linux)
– Notes client (Windows and Apple Mac)
– Notes, Designer & Admin clients (Windows)
– Verse on Premises (Windows and Linux)
– DominoDB NPM package for Node.js
The goal of the IBM Domino V10 Portfolio Beta Program is for the community of beta participants to conduct honest, constructive and thoughtful review and testing of the Domino V10 beta software, which includes IBM Domino V10, IBM Notes V10, IBM Sametime V10 and IBM Verse On-Premises V10.
We’re seeking people who meet the following criteria:
– A business end user, administrator, or developer, who has prior knowledge of Domino, Notes, and Verse.
– Those who bring diverse (role/industry/geography/company size) attributes to the beta team and, thus, ensure we get the right blend of input perspectives.
IBM is looking for participants to:
– Share their use case for the beta in their company.
– Engage in a dialog about Domino V10 and provide timely feedback.
– Be constructive and professional in all written/spoken interaction with program members, IBM and HCL.
– Attend the web conferences and meetings pertaining to the beta program.
– Experience the beta in a non-production environment.
– Be open to the idea of becoming a reference for IBM Domino V10.
Note: No travel is required.
To participate in the IBM Domino V10 Portfolio Beta simply fill-in and submit this signup sheet.
We anticipate strong interest in the program and will do our best to accommodate as many people as possible. If you have been accepted into the Beta 1, we will let you know by email before June 25th. If you have been accepted in the Beta 2 phase of the program, we will let you know by email before July 15th. We will not be accepting requests for participation in the beta program after July 15th.
Lastly, and in tandem with the IBM Domino V10 Portfolio Beta program, HCL is running a separate beta program for the Domino Apps on iPad offering – now called “HCL Nomad.” We encourage you to sign-up for this beta on the following page. The HCL Nomad beta program starts on June 13th and is being managed by HCL, not IBM.
Thank you for your continued support on the Domino portfolio!
