We changed our name from IT Central Station: Here's why

HCL Notes Primary Use Case

HS
Sr. Analyst at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees

We have an on-premise deployment. After all, it is an email client. The way you use Microsoft Outlook or any other email client it makes sense to be deployed on-premise. They do have a SaaS version. The way it works when we are working on an enterprise laptop — the laptops that the company has provided us — it is installed on our systems. Other than that, the particular tool or email client can also be accessed via web login. We often use that when we are using it from a smartphone or any other non-company device.  

Our primary use case is just what it is: an email client. It is my stable solution and the only email client that I use. Web meetings are also a part of what we use it for. They have a solution — their adjacent solution is called IBM Sametime or HCL Sametime — which is the chat functionality. But our primary use case is as the email client.

Administration & Technical Director at a tech services company with 11-50 employees

We've got several key production databases within Notes. We are a chicken hatchery. We produce chickens for eating meat. We produce 10 million a week, and every single egg is traced on a Notes database. Every single delivery note is printed out from a Notes database, and many reports come off it. 

We're all on-premises. We've got two data centers, one in the north and one in the south, and they, in effect, are private clouds because people log onto them from everywhere around the country.

Most users are on version 11, but our servers are on version 12. We've got probably 50% of our head office onto the desktop version 12. We've been waiting to upgrade it till they release 12.01, which they did yesterday, so we'll be upgrading everybody to 12.01 in the new year.
