Getting started with IBM Connections Engagement Center
Fri, Dec 15th 2017 4:15p   Adam Gartenberg
An excellent guide on getting started with IBM Connections Engagement Center is now available on DeveloperWorks. Head on over and check it out! IBM Connections Engagement Center (ICEC) provides an easy way to build a social intranet by creating a portal-like experience using various out-of-the-box and custom widgets. ICEC does not have its own content store, but aggregates content from different backend systems. Mostly, IBM Connections is the back-end system, since it is the underlying found

Connections Customizer now Generally Available
Fri, Dec 15th 2017 3:52p   Adam Gartenberg
An important part of the "Pink" vision for the future of IBM Connections is the ability to extend and customize the environment. We took a big step forward in that vision with the general availability this week of the Customizer capability. As its name implies, Customizer allows you to customize the look and feel and behavior of Connections, such as inserting your own company's branding, modifying standard UI elements such as photos or buttons, or even making larger changes (e.g., replac

The IBM Docs team shipped Docs 2.0 CR3 yesterday, with a couple of much sought-after features, notably a conversion server on Linux and track changes functionality: Support for the Conversion Server on Linux: This way you can know deploy all of Docs one platform of your choice: Windows or Linux.

Introducing Connections Engagement Suite

It's been really encouraging to see the interest that we're getting in the IBM Connections Engagement Center (previously known as XCC). And one frequent request we've received is for a way to simplify the purchase of Connections and Engagement Center for businesses completely new to the portfolio. With that in mind, today we are introducing IBM Connections Engagement Suite. Designed to give organizations the tools needed for collaboration and improving employee engagement, the Engageme

IBM Acquires TIMETOACT GROUP’s XCC Solution; Introduces IBM Connections Engagement Center
Wed, May 31st 2017 7:16p   Adam Gartenberg
Earlier today IBM announced that we have acquired the XCC solution from TIMETOACT Group and that we will be making it available in 3Q as IBM Connections Engagement Center, an add-on to IBM Connections. I’m guessing that many of you may be familiar with XCC already, but for those that are not, it extends the collaboration functionality in IBM Connections by making it very easy to create a “social” intranet homepage and landing pages based on content from Connections (and elsewhe

IBM Connections 6 - Availability Announcement and Orient Me
Wed, Mar 29th 2017 3:47p   Adam Gartenberg
It was great to see the official availability announcement for IBM Connections 6 come out yesterday, with general availability coming at the end of this week. (Sorry for any confusion on the GA date from the press release the other week - the ship date is in fact 3/31.) Rene Schimmer does a great job summarizing the new features that will be introduced with this release, and over the next few days I'll dive into a few in particular, starting with Orient Me. Orient Me is important both

All you need to know is…

I was introduced to a story shared by Larry and Ann McDuff about the lessons they learned long-distance hiking by Seth Godin a while back, and it immediately resonated with me. I went to share it with my son’s FIRST Robotics coach recently and was dismayed to discover that the original link no longer worked. Fortunately, the Wayback Machine didn’t disappoint. Five years ago we started the Appalachian Trail with nearly three times our starting pack weight this year. Two weeks i

Mike Gotta (Gartner) – Workstream Collaboration
Tue, Feb 21st 2017 11:17p   Adam Gartenberg
Mike Gotta, VP Research at Gartner, opened the IBM Watson Workspace and Watson Work Services Strategy and Roadmap session with his perspective on the dynamics we’re seeing today around the emerging workstream collaboration market. A couple of things that stood out for me (my comments in italics): Conversation is the new binding fabric for teams. (This idea of conversation vs. collaboration is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, so it was good to hear this from him,

Will I see you at Connect?
Tue, Feb 14th 2017 7:38p   Adam Gartenberg
It looks like I'm long overdue for some updates here. For those who haven’t heard, I returned to IBM Collaboration Services mid-last year, after several fun and exciting years in IBM’s Analytics business unit, most recently managing the Marketing Operations team. I am thrilled to be back in ICS and to be managing the business-focused portion of the Offering Management team, spanning the messaging, social and unified communications offerings (on-premises and Cloud).
