HCL Domino

Domino is secure by comparison, due in part by it's lower market share, but also it's native encryption capability. Domino is stable. With fewer changes and revisions, Domino performance can be relied upon with existing infrastructure. Despite its clunky admin console, administration as a whole is easier and more intuitive. The native Domino application language is either Java or LotusScript. Finding developers for the latter application can be troublesome.

Ignite UI

Angular is our framework of choice for a number of reasons. Business data is almost always displayed in a grid format. It makes sense to start with a strong widget that is powerful and fast when building applications. Ignite UI provides a complete toolset of widgets for other frameworks, but Angular is our focus. Ignite UI is helping us deliver a great UX/UI.

Ignite UI

  • The examples are great and close enough to real-life usage to be truly helpful
  • The OOB configuration and themes are good. They are very configurable.
  • The touch support and response web are built in, allowing the same code to work well on desktop and phone.

Cons

HCL Domino

  • I am not a fan of the Domino ID for authentication purposes. Some Admins appreciate this feature, but ID aging, updating and management issues are burdensome.
  • Integrations with current available software applications as a result of lower Domino adoption rates.
  • Administration tools are somewhat dated and clunky. Even with updates and patches, the Domino administrator console hasn't changed in years.

Ignite UI

  • I would like to see examples with security tokens. It really isn't an Ignite UI issue, but would be helpful.
  • Some of the examples are over-simplified, not how the products would be used in real life.

Alternatives Considered

HCL Domino

Having administered Domino right out of tech school I have very limited experience with other platforms. Realizing that Exchange is the de facto solution used by the rest of the universe, and now O365\Azure to eliminate on-prem data centers the future of direct platform administration is numbered. I lack the experience to usefully comment on or compare other products.

Ignite UI

We tried DevExpress when we started a project a couple of years ago. At the time, the documentation and ease of use went to Infragistics. When trying new or updated tools, the documentation and samples are everything. Having minimal documentation or documentation that seems to be written for people that already know how to use the product is just plain frustrating. Samples need to be something close to the real-life usage of the product.

Return on Investment

HCL Domino

  • The immediate impact on my organization as a non-profit is cost. Enterprise pricing for a Domino solution is exponentially more inexpensive than more popular applications.
  • Of the most obvious impacts is user familiarity. Given a vast majority of the employment pool having familiarity with MS products, orienting new employees to Domino\Notes is burdensome. Adoption is slow and resistance is high.
  • Hiring Domino administrators and developers is increasingly challenging.
  • The recent sale of the Domino platform away from IBM is concerning.

Ignite UI

  • There is a learning curve, of course, but the comparisons between the projects with and without Ignite UI are worth it.
  • The time savings on development is very real. The built-in functionality is amazing.
  • We are able to focus on features rather than getting the look and feel of our deliverable.
