HCL announces purchase of IBM Products


HCL has announced to purchase seven standard software products from IBM in mid-2019, including Notes Domino.

What does this mean from GEDYS Intraware-point of view?

GEDYS Intraware – as the largest CRM provider on this application platform worldwide – will benefit from the new HCL dynamic and definitely welcomes it. The contact and cooperation with HCL at managerial and operational level is very close.

There have been many takeovers in the 30-year history of GEDYS Intraware. The IT software industry is constantly reinventing itself, large and small providers are equally highly innovative. Notes Domino has been a stable, secure, scalable and very cost-effective application platform under IBM. A great development environment for our excellent CRM. One of the first and leading low code platforms.

Back to the year 1995

We are reminded of the time when IBM bought the product Domino from Lotus. Concerns were huge. The lean and fast acting company Lotus, with whose product we created an outstanding CRM application, switched to the big tanker IBM. We asked ourselves: Can this work? 23 years later we know it. It went well. The CRM and GEDYS Intraware have grown many times over and made a great development.

Now the opposite happens: Big and sometimes too slow, is now back again too fast acting, to innovative software versions like Domino 10 and to more flexible marketing. Many customers and employees have felt the new flexibility in the last 12 months: Jam sessions, close contact with US decision makers, close cooperation with business partners and announced annual Notes Domino updates are just some of the milestones of the first year. A great success in such a short time. We are convinced that HCL is offering good growth opportunities in the future.
