In short: The answer to the blog post title is yes. However, HCL is committed to Connections in the cloud as well as on premises. It’s just going to be different. Here’s what we know so far.In the past few days I’ve done some digging and asked around. And here are the facts I’ve found.

First month with HCL software

We have completed the first month when HCL fully took over from IBM Collaboration software (Domino, Notes, Sametime, Connections …..). Information comes from all sides, we gain access to individual systems. Everything is not going smoothly, but from my own experience I know that the people of each teams are trying to help. I wish everything was successful and thanks to all HCL people and customers for patience.

Connections 6.0 CR5. pay attention to the path in case of manual upgrade of TinyMCE editor !

Since Connections 6.0 CR5 , was released there was also an update of the great optional editor formerly know as Ephox now named TinyMCE 5. I love this editor ( and my customers love it too) because all the features available, so I usually add it to all my Connections setup. In almost every cases the setup is very easy because to perform the setup it's needed only to run a script and install an EAR on the appserver but in some cases due particular SSH config, it could be required the manual setup. During my last CR5 upgrade I wasn't able to use the script so I've followed the manual setup like it's written on IBM Documentation at this page..

So anyone who has anything to do with IBM connections will have already heard this and must be fully aware but yes, the sale of the IBM Collaboration portfolio (including IBM Connections) was finalized by the first of this month. This means that from now on IBM Connections is…. Connections.
