I’m delighted to bring you an important update on the Digital Solutions strategy for HCL Nomad, the client interface to Domino applications.
First, we are shipping HCL Nomad 1.0.4 for the Apple iPad available from the Apple App Store today.
Second, calling all Android tablet and iPhone users. We have Nomad available for beta testing on Android 8.1 and iPhone available now. Please sign up to participate in both betas here.
Third, the Nomad Web Assembly work is proceeding well. In fact, some of you saw the first demo at the recent Factory Tour in Chelmsford, MA. The goal of this Nomad offering is to enable Domino apps to run natively on a web browser without installing a Notes or ICAA desktop client. For the companies I’ve spoken with, the “zero footprint” approach greatly reduces complexity and saves time and money — a real game-changer. The timeline for a beta is 1H-2020.
Fourth, HCL Nomad and Google. Based on Google’s strategy, we’ve already demonstrated the Nomad for Android beta running ChromeOS as a native application. In addition, once the Nomad Web Assembly work is complete, you will able to run those apps without an install on the Chrome browser on your ChromeOS device natively. If you want to try the Android beta, please subscribe to the beta here.
Enhancement requests? As always, we want to hear from you. Please submit your ideas as usual in the Domino ideas portal.
Thank you for your continued support of the HCL Nomad initiative.
