Cons
"HCL Domino could improve by having integration with other solutions, such as Microsoft 365.""HCL Domino needs to be more user-friendly.""The solution could improve Kubernetes or Dockers migration to new environments in the cloud.""From the Domino side, it should support DKIM and DMARC.""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.""The client version of this solution could be faster and be made simpler for non-IT users. You will need to have some knowledge of Notes to correctly install this solution.""When you compare with Microsoft Exchange, the UI could be more user-friendly."

More HCL Domino Cons →

"Since we first started using OutSystems, they switched their language support from Java and .NET to .NET only, which was a bit of a surprise. Their language support could be better in this sense, although on our resource side it is now a bit more flexible.""In my opinion, the support and the pricing could be better.""The tutorials for the solution should be updated.""The dashboards in OutSystems could improve. There are a lot of tabs in the service center that can be confusing.""The solution is costly.""Currently, in mobile applications, we don't have push notifications.""We'd like OutSystems to add stronger workflow-based automation similar to what Appian offers. It needs more workflow modeling and RPA features.""The prices should be lower. It is a little bit too high for a small market."
