HCL Nomad is the solution for using HCL Domino applications on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets (iOS & Android). More interestingly, in some cases, Notes’ replication feature is also available for Nomad mobile apps. However, the size of these apps on mobile devices with limited storage space can quickly become a limiting factor.
In this short article, we describe how dataglobal CS reduces the size of HCL Domino applications for HCL Nomad on mobile devices using a smart file attachment removal process. This enables the use of HCL Domino applications of any size on mobile devices, easily and without further migrations.
File attachments are archived in audit-compliant format using dataglobal CS, and remain accessible from anywhere at any time―like in a private cloud. Notes Client users as well as mobile device users on their smartphones or tablets can thus access any relevant and required data at any time.
Any file attachments are automatically replaced by archive references, based on specific rules. When setting up these rules, the administrator can choose:
- HCL Domino applications
- Search criteria for documents within HCL Domino applications
- Search criteria for file attachments within the document
Each reference that is inserted into a document and that replaces a file attachment after its archiving is automatically calculated and contains mechanisms to prevent misuse.
This archiving of file attachments using dataglobal CS significantly reduces storage space in HCL Domino applications. This relieves the mobile device’s storage space and enables mobile access to the company’s entire data in HCL Domino applications by leveraging HCL Nomad.
Furthermore, users have the option of sharing references to archived file attachments with business partners and coworkers, even if they do not use HCL Nomad, and regardless of their device―there has never been more flexibility!
