The new release provides many significant business and technical benefits, including:
- Unsurpassed Standardization and Flexibility – Production Docker & Kubernetes support means initial install and subsequent updates of HCL DX software take minutes, not hours or days, and provides unmatched flexibility and portability, so you can select the deployment model and platform of your choice.
- Accelerated Time-to-Market – A reimagined practitioner experience, a beautiful set of out-of-box templates, as well as the forthcoming and new native digital asset management capability, help empower business users to create, manage, and publish memorable experiences more effectively – ultimately delivering the experience customers demand in a timelier manner.
- Liberated Experience Delivery – Developers can deliver cutting-edge experiences to any and all digital touchpoints, leveraging the latest front-end frameworks and the new self-describing OpenAPI set of REST services. Greater consistency across touchpoints lead to more revenue opportunities.
- Lower Total Cost of Ownership – Kubernetes orchestration for automated provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, self-healing (and more) dramatically reduces total cost of ownership.
“Docker support provides an open standard for packaging and distributing containerized applications on virtually any platform,” said Darren Oberst, CVP and Head of HCL Software. “This means installation and subsequent updates of digital experiences can be done in minutes, providing unmatched time-to-market.”
