HCL Software today announced HCL Connections v7, a major new release of the company’s enterprise community platform. The new release was launched during HCL Software’s Digital Week, an inaugural virtual event for the company’s digital solutions customers. Connections enables enterprises to advance from siloed conversations in Microsoft Teams to structured communities with the ability to identify experts and communicate with the entire business. Connections v7 will be generally available in December 2020.
More than ever, it is imperative that organizations provide a secure digital platform that breaks down collaboration gaps and drives project productivity across the enterprise. Connections v7 delivers these innovations and more:
Jumpstart your projects. Don’t reinvent what works for your organization. Get teams up and running 80 percent faster with new, easy-to-use templates or reuse your existing templates built from your enterprise’s best practices.
Integrate the power of Connections with Microsoft 365®. Save users hours every week by integrating HCL Connections with Microsoft and eliminating the inefficiency of toggling multiple applications to locate crucial information. Make teamwork more seamless by bringing the value of Connections communities and content to the Microsoft ecosystem.
Deploy powerful new features 90 percent faster. For Connections customers, upgrading is even easier and faster with new installation scripts and a cloud native version of Component Pack supporting Amazon EKS and RedHat Open Shift.
“From the CEO to the shopfloor and road warrior, the need for everyone in an organization to feel connected and get their work done easily has never been more important,” said Richard Jefts, General Manager and Vice President of Development. “Our customers use Connections as their digital workplace to bring all of their employees and their communities together to solve business problems, share their expertise, and contribute to their company’s culture.”
