For the second time, Vladislav Tatarincev, Margarita Orlenko and the whole RNUG team did an amazing job bringing together Notes/Domino subject matter experts, HCL execs, and business partners to review the yearly updates and showcase the HCL roadmap for the future. This year, for the first time, RNUG was completely virtual. However, that did not prevent a record turnout of ~600 participants from 31 countries joining 59 sessions and 59 broadcasting hours from 41 speakers resulting in ~250GB of video recordings.

Immediate Session Translations

RNUG opened on Friday, December 4th, 2020 fully packed with workshops around HCL Monitoring, App Modernization, Notes Client Management & Upgrades and HCL Volt. Is there a better way to end the week and start the conference? 😉

With this great start to the conference, the sessions started, seven of which panagendians had the pleasure of presenting.

All sessions were translated simultaneously (selectable audio track) – including the Q&A. This also means that the recordings are in the process of being finalized for all of you with an estimated publish date around mid-January. One more thing to look forward to in 2021!

Breaks Also Turned Virtual

After each session, the virtual panagenda booth / café opened as a separate Zoom / breakout room where clients could interact and ask follow-up questions.

We were amazed by the positive feedback from the audience. Whenever language barriers appeared, we were all able to communicate with one another by demonstrating issues through screen sharing, making gestures with video calls or simply chatting using Google Translate so as to be able to discuss the content of the technical presentation.

No Time to Take the Bear for a Walk

All in all, it was a great 6-day conference!

A special shout goes out to the RNUG team that consisted of 33 people of which 13 (!) were interpreters. The technical preparations were just plain awesome and highly professional and they even were prepared for bigger technical difficulties – which simply did not happen! Hats off!

This was one of the best virtual conferences I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking at! From start to finish, the whole event just worked. Big Kudos to the organizers, once again.


Christoph Adler, HCL Ambassador

From hearing of the latest updates of 2020 to discovering the future roadmap for the products we love. All the while learning from our favorite subject matter experts. Even with the difficulties of a global pandemic and different time zones, we were able to collaborate and share expertise.

Увидимся в следующий раз.

Slides to panagenda’s sessions

In this Workshop Florian Vogler & Christoph Adler will show you detailed how you can use MarvelClient Upgrade to configure, prepare and run the best HCL Notes installations ever. You will learn how easy it is to get all users upgraded to the latest and greatest version of HCL Notes in lightspeed, seamlessly and without any disruptions for users.

Additionally to “upgrades” they will show how to create “initial” installation packages for HCL Notes being able to deploy this on new computers AND the fully automatic way to create an HCL Notes installation for virtual platforms like Citrix and VDI including all needed optimizations and performance tweaks.

In this session (re-reloaded and remastered for HCL Notes 11.0.1 FP2), you will learn how easy it can be to maximize Notes client performance. Let Christoph Adler show you, what can be tuned and how to resolve the best possible performance for your HCL Notes client infrastructure. Discover tips and tweaks – how to debug your Notes client, deal with outdated ODS, network latency and application performance issues and the measurable benefit that provides to your users.

You’ll discover the current best practices for streamlining location and connection documents and why the catalog.nsf is still so important. You will leave the session with the knowledge you need to improve your HCL Notes 11.0.1 FP2 client installations and to provide a better experience for happier administration and happier end-users!

Come join Florian Vogler for a fast paced session on how customers reduce their Notes helpdesk tickets by 80% and more.

Learn what panagenda MarvelClient has to offer and how it helps companies around the world! Plus, we will definitely cover what to best manage with the FREE MarvelClient Essentials and the FREE MarvelClient for HCL Nomad. This session will help you optimize your total cost of ownership and become a Notes Client superhero!

Join this session and learn how you can take the worst Notes client deployments (simulated multi-user, copied data directories, outdated templates, misconfigured workspace folders, dramatically grown data directories, very slow clients, clients with crashes, etc.) and clean it, upgrade it and deliver it without disruption! No matter how much you try, you will always find Notes clients out there that do not behave or participate! Gain access to the best and latest Notes client management knowledge, combined with more than 16 years of experience with Notes client upgrades to get the fastest and most stable HCL Notes 11.0.1 FP2 client ever.

Do you know the game “How might we”? We, that is panagenda and Team Technology, played this game on the fringe of a tech conference. The challenge was clear: What would a Game Changer be in the context of HCL Notes / Domino App Analytics and Modernization? You can best imagine the result of our session with one simple thought: At the end of an in-depth analysis of your HCL Notes / Domino applications the central result is a ready-to-use application and not longer data and many colorful charts on a dashboard or PowerPoint slide as before…

The new, common formula for success & speed in modernization is: “Analyze > Deploy > Test > Optimize”. This process enables you to get immediate user feedback in order to better understand what concrete requirements a user has on a mobile device. The central challenge today is to provide up-to-date mobile applications and not simply to transfer the old-fashioned desktop interface & business logic to a mobile device 1-to-1.

Virtualizing HCL Notes 11.0.1 FP2 (incl. Language Packs, Fix Packs, Connections Plugins for Notes and more) is an effective way to standardize your Notes client infrastructure, reduce costs for workstation hardware and give your users a consistent experience. In this session, you will learn how to implement, configure and tune HCL Notes 11.0.1 FP2 on platforms like Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop and get the most out of it by dramatically reducing start-up times (up to 70%), bringing a much better performance and increasing the stability into the Notes client.

Beside a live demo on what we call “The Workspace (folder) Improvement” you’ll also get some worst practices stories as Chris shares his experiences from real-world client virtualization projects, how these stories can help you and a detailed recipe on ”How to run the Installation and initial configuration of Notes in the best possible way for your very own infrastructure”.

panagenda reached out to 750+ professionals to share their company’s Domino application strategy. Join this session to find out what was most important to your peers and what challenges they had to overcome to make their project a success. Find out about the critical questions everybody should ask and have answers to throughout their project. Franz Walder presents the exciting results of the survey and explains what role analytics can play when tackling these challenges.
