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.

When there is the need to rapidly show data and/or build a nice UI without having to build your own stuff. Let's say one needs to have a complete dashboard about some business streams or other KPI intensive system. Designing and implementing everything from scratch will take a huge amount of time. And a steep learning curve. Dashboard platform will help cut down those two timelines.

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.

Syncfusion Essential Studio Enterprise Edition

  • The documentation. It lacks detail and real-world examples.
  • The theme support. It really could use some improvement in the easiness of customization
  • As always, there's room for improvement. Maybe allowing for a better experience in terms of mix and match data points on the graphs

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.

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.
