HCL Domino V11
The new server can modernize existing applications with minimal effort and make them usable for mobile devices.
Thanks to new Active Directory synchronization, users and groups only need to be created in AD. They will also appear in the Domino Directory. This makes the AD the “single source of truth”.
Domino V11 now features with an Event Publisher that can propagate changes in Domino databases in cloud applications such as Azure.
Now, in Domino V11, attachments of old mail from the Domino Attachment and Object Store (DAOS) can be archived to the AWS “Glacial Storage”.
HCL Notes 11 Client
Now with revised Mail & Calendar as well as integration into appointment coordination with OnTime and Approved Contact.
