HCL premiered a brand new low-code solution called Volt MX today. Did you think Domino could give you an Augmented Reality Experience? Now it can!
Jason Gary from HCL demoed the brand new Volt MX low-code solution from HCL today. The person in the photo above is looking for new shoes and pulls out her cell phone. Via |n app created with Volt MX, she finds a mall since the Volt MX app can use the maps app on her phone:
She enters the mall and using a wayfinder in the app she finds the shoe store:
She enters the store, but because of Covid-19 restrictions, she can’t try the shoes on. Instead she uses the Augmented Reality part of the app, and can try the shoes on, virtually:
After choosing the correct color and size, she checks out and pays, without having to use the checkout desk:
After arriving at her home office, she decides that she wants to be reimbursed by her employer for a purchase she has done.
Andrew, her manager, then gets an Expense Approval Request on his phone:
However, this purchase was over $1000, so it has to be approved by the Vice President. So after Andrew has approved it, the VP gets a message on his Apple Watch:
All this is made through the use of HVL Volt MX. The MX part means “multi user experience.”
Let’s say you have an old Notes/Domino application with a lot of business logic in the back end. With the help of Volt MX, you will have the ability to build one front end user interface for that will work on Android, iOS and the web. But you will have to build it only once, not once for each platform. It will also make it easy for you to integrate your Domino application with other platforms, systems and solutions. And you can also use AI frameworks to create smart apps and really utilize your data in a new way:
- Augmented Reality
- Virtual Reality
- Artificial Intelligence
- Machine Learning
- Geolocation and Wayfinding
And it’s just using one single code base! And there’s hardly need for any code to up such an app. There’s a part of MX called the “Foundry” which is used for connecting backend systems, like SAP for example, to your applications developed with HCL Volt MX. You can map apps and systems with drag and drop in an editor:
So how do you get started? Well, there’s more good news: HCL will have an online repository with code snippets and examples. All open sourced and free to use! In addition to videos, manuals and teaching material. And: There is already a Volt MX Lotusscript library ready for you to use!
And here are som other highlights from HCL about MX:
And finally, you can request a free trial for MX and get started ASAP:
Phew! What do you guys think? Are you as excited about Domino as a low code platform as we, and HCL, are? Let us know in the comments.
