Domino is best in medium-sized businesses of 20-100 employees. It's too complicated to implement in very small companies unless you have good external resources. It scales up very well for larger companies but the pressures of users wanting particular "brand-name" software can become difficult. If you want a restricted "extranet/portal" system for a limited set of members it's a great system, particularly if you add a Domino CRM on top. Unlike Microsoft, you never have to resort to command-line tools, like PowerShell, in Domino to get things done.

Oracle

The Oracle Java SE Subscription is a useful service that can support larger organizations that need to implement quick feature development and need to do so with maximum support with minimal fuss. Performance can vary due to the nature of Javas JVM having to boot upon every start and there can be some compatibility issues with a few third-party systems. Smaller organizations would be better off utilizing Java SDK or OpenJDK as these are free but don't have the benefit of direct support from Oracle. If a larger organization has a long history of using Java and has legacy systems running on older versions of Java, then the extra support needed will more than justify the cost If you are heavily invested in Java and need to support applications running on older versions such as Java 8, or you want to use OracleJDK, then you would want to consider getting the subscription for its support and patches.

  • Since, JOracle Java SE Subscription is [a] purely Object Oriented programming language, all the concepts /features (like inheritance, abstraction) can be implemented as per real-world scenarios. Also, the code reusability is very helpful. In Oracle Java SE Subscription, both data and behavior [are] taken care [of].
  • Java Byte code. Since bytecode is a highly optimized set of instructions that [are] executed by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), Bytecode helps in achieving both portability and security.
  • Multithreading. In Oracle Java SE Subscription, we can write Multithreaded programs for running /executing multiple tasks at [the] same time and memory need not be allocated to every running thread.
  • Oracle Java SE Subscription has automatic memory management or garbage collection, which is an application /concept that automatically handles [the] allocation and deallocation of memory.

  • For older versions of Java it could provide instructions or support to migrate to the version supported by the application that is more recent.
  • The definition of rules by browser between versions of Java used could be suggested among the most common or that increase security.
  • For the developer environment, it would be very useful to have available a list of the functions or procedures that have been outdated or replaced by version.

    As I mentioned before, quality of support from Oracle Java SE Subscription is extraordinary. The speed of resolution and the expertise of the staff is really appreciated. We raised a high priority support incident which blocked our process [and] Oracle Java SE support did a quick analysis and provided a solution which took less time than we expected. They also help us in installing patches and updates whenever required.

    Alternatives Considered

    HCL Technologies

    We use SharePoint, SQL and Teams but only for the things that they excel in. For example, we use teams for small team interactions (including external participants). We use teams for meetings too. We've discovered that Teams collaboration is not as full-functional as Domino and more importantly, that our members (financial services) do not trust the Open Office365 cloud. SharePoint and Team collaborative features are often blocked in our member organizations. Domino is much easier to identify and unblock at the firewall level. It's much easier to restrict collaboration to approved options in Domino.

    Return on Investment

    HCL Technologies

    • 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.
