We focus on developing custom applications on HCL Domino / Notes platform.
Our customers appreciate our involment in the design of the desired solution from the very start. We take advantage of our long-term experienced team, ready-made tools and product portfolio to discuss pros and cons, suggest improvements and cost savings.
During the development process we use selected patterns of agile development. According to the project scale we plan several milestones. Each milestone means a certain part of solution is presented to the customer to ensure we are moving the right direction, discuss the remaining issues and make a small amendments, if necessary. The goal is to reveal any imperfections in the specification and therefore avoid project delay or additional costs.
The most common job is a development of back-office application designed for Lotus Notes (HCL Notes) client. We have a strong background in this field - more than 15 years experience and dozens of successful implementations. And our clients may hugely benefit from that extensive knowledge.
Web applications (run in internet browser) are very popular these days. The HCL Domino platform can of course support and provide such applications. The benefits are obvious - users are familiar with internet browser (no need to learn HCL Client), no need to install and maintaine HCL Clients for IT staff, applications could be accessible from mobile devices and might be easily integrated to intranet portals and/or other solutions.
Even in the early stages of development we present the suitable parts of application (mainly user interface) to the customer to ensure the smooth proceeding of the process. To make this possible we use Atlassian Jira system for change requirements management. The customer is not only able to overview all issues on-line but also actively participate in the solution.
In case of a large systems supplemental activities may be vital. Existing IT infrastructure needs to be prepared for implementation of a new system (reference data sources integration, hardware scaling, security review etc.).
Analysis and system design are the very first steps in the process. We need to become acquainted with the customer environment, internal processes (both existing and future), solution requirements and limitations. The outcome of the activity is a desired system design, expected project schedule and pricing. There might be several variants of the solution client can choose from.
Next stage is the application development completed by preparation of technical environment - installation and configuration of application servers (typically HCL Domino servers), application installation and for web applications in addition proxy server installation and ADFS configuration (Single sign-on).
Technical environment documentation and client's IT staff training make up integral part of the project that ensure smooth and successful running of the system in the long-term.
There are further services available to our clients like data migration, user training and user manual preparation. From the technology point of view not only HCL Domino/Notes platform but other technologies like RDBMS (MS SQL Server, Oracle etc.), web-services, REST API and many more could be used where appropriate.
We offer and recommend our support services to secure continuous and flawless running of client's information systems.
Standard part of our support service contract is an access to helpdesk system JIRA. The clients are able to create and track the "issues" concerning application problems, change and improvement requirements. Authorized users can watch, discuss and comment on the issue solution progress. The customers with the pre-paid working hour account (usually certain number of dedicated developer hours for small application amendments) can approve spending and manage the balance.
Support services can contain maintenance of supplies application maintenance (answering questions, problems investigation and fix-up, processing of change requirement etc.), server maintenance (including the communication with HCL Domino platform producer), consultancy services regarding server and HCL Client configuration and last but not least Service-level agreement.
We prefer to work with our customers on long-term basis, jointly developing and expanding information systems according to our clients business needs.
There are also additional services provided by CubeTeam like user and developer training or HCL Domino/Notes licence sale.
We provide several types of trainings for HCL Client user, HCL Domino administrator, application developer, web application developer or users and administrators of custom-developed application. User training usually takes place in the client's spaces as it is recommended for users to work on their own computers. The number of attendees depends mainly on customer room capacity. For developer training we recommend up to 5 participans in maximum allowing the lector to pay attention to each attendee individually.
Feasibility study is a complex type of analysis activity comprising business and technical analysis. Business analysis focuses on existing and future processes description, gathering requirements of all concerned representatives and general solution proposal. Technical analysis deals with specific design of desired solution including all technical aspects like selected platform, hardware and software requirements (licences), system and application topology, application functional and non-functional requirements, acceptation critera and so on. Final report contains also draft budget and schedule of the implementation project. As a result customer is able to make an informed decision on whether to carry out the project.
As the certified HCL business partner CubeTeam is authorised to provide HCL licences. We also offer licence portfolio consultancy to achieve the most valuable option for the client.
Although CubeTeam is aiming on custom application development, we offer ready-made solutions as well. These solutions are usually further tailored according to particular client needs. The advantage of such an approach is not only shorter delivery time and lower costs but easier definition of prospective solution requirements.
Intranet portal is a tool for company internal communication (publication of articles, notices, reports or other company related information), gathering information from employees (questionnaires and surveys), application portal and other services like social features, interactive organisation chart and many more.
