No. Theoretically you can uninstall and install any software using the MarvelClient Upgrade module. This means that, in addition to upgrades (for instance, from 8.5 to 9), you can also perform updates (for instance, from 9.0.1 to 9.0.2), cross-grades (for instance, from single to multi-user clients), and even downgrades (for instance, from 9 to 8.5). Of course it’s also possible to install add-ons, fix packs, language packs, etc. You can also install third-party software (such as SSO solutions).
Yes. You can start any number of setups (and uninstallations) in the desired order: for instance, starting with the IBM Notes client, then fix packs, language packs, add-ons, widgets for the sidebar, the IBM Connections plugin, etc.
Yes. With MarvelClient Upgrade, you can define conditions very flexibly. Installation packages can, for instance be rolled out, depending on the hardware type (laptop vs. desktop). Even if you are not using the Smart File Downloader and, where applicable, only one installation package was rolled out, you can define which installations are executed on the respective device.
MarvelClient Upgrade first checks whether the installation packages are present (and complete) on the user’s device. If this is the case, the user gets for instance a message with which they can initiate or defer the installation process.
No. You could also define that the message occurs at client startup. It is also possible to indicate DURING a Notes session that an installation is pending. This guarantees a reliable execution even for users who keep their Notes clients up and running for weeks.
MarvelClient Upgrade is executed in administrator context.
You can easily define how often an installation may be deferred before the process is enforced.
Our Graceful Shutdown prompts users to save documents.
No. With MarvelClient Upgrade, you only need to define how your client landscape should look at the end.
No. You can homogenize the IBM Notes program and data directories. MarvelClient Upgrade automatically adjusts all settings. You really only have to define how your client landscape should look at the end 😉
No. You can also use other tools for the rollout. For a successful installation, MarvelClient Upgrade must know only the path of the installation files.
Yes. MarvelClient Upgrade supports open client strategies. E.g. IBM Client Application Access (ICAA) in combination with Microsoft Outlook, IBM Mail Support for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO), as well as IBM Verse. The choice is yours!
