June 7th meant not only the release of the HCL Domino V12 but also that of the much anticipated HCL Sametime 11.6

Last year has changed the way we work since the pandemic has forced companies to send their employees home. The need of a better Digital Workplace was a challenge for HCL and Sametime has evolved so as it can bring a complete tool to its users with:

  • Video Meetings and Chat 
  • Security 
  • Infrastructure (OnPrem or Cloud) 
  • Collaborative Culture 
  • Synchronous and Asynchronous work

One of the very important aspects of working from home is security. You need to have a platform that can help you keep your data safe. 


The main questions that rise when choosing a platform to work on are:


  • Who “Owns” your data?
  • Is it secure? 
  • Who controls updates?
  • Will it be “sold” for data mining? 
  • How can I remove my data? 
  • Who can I call for help?

Here are the important updates on HCL Sametime 11.6

You can also choose what is the best deployment solution for your company, be it on-prem or in cloud.

Cloud Deployment

  • Managed Kubernetes
  • Pay for what you use
  • Less Complexity
  • Up and running in minutes

On-Premises Deployment

  • Small Docker based deployments
  • Regulated industries
  • Kubernetes Clusters already deployed
  • No internet allowed

As great as this version of HCL Sametime looks, there are still some interesting features to look forward to this fall:
