Allen Boyce    

IBM connections 6.0 is fresh off the oven, released on 27 March and opens up a new world of opportunities in enterprise social collaboration. We took the IBM Connections 6.0 for a test drive and explored the brand-new features.

The latest version of Connections will bring new capabilities to enterprise social networks for a simpler collaboration across the workforce and employee on boarding experience. Connections 6 also integrates with IBM Cloud Object Storage, providing companies an ability to scale their storage needs with their employee’s usage while improving storage costs.

Here are the top six of the most awaited features of IBM Connections 6:

1.Orient Me:

IBM Connections 6.0 has been redesigned to surface the most useful content from the user’s network. This feature leverages a new containerized, API-driven architecture to bring the most relevant information for the user to engage with – providing an interactive experience.

“Orient Me” is a modern digital worker hub that priorities updates based on the user’s behaviors and interactions with their colleagues.

2.Customizable Modern Communities:

Communities have got a “modern” look and feel on IBM Connections 6. The clean, cards layout and top navigation, and with more options to customize. Community Owners can now have more options when designing their custom Community Homepage. While creating new communities, Community owners can reuse the layouts and designs from an existing community by copying them into the new one.

IBM Connections 6.0

The 6 appeal:

  • Create website-like Community experiences with powerful branding through easy-to-use design tools

  • Create new Communities fast by choosing from existing layouts
  • Hide a widget but retain its link in the left sidebar

3.Enhanced User Onboarding:

New Users can now be onboarding onto Connections with easy first steps. Without accessing multiple pages and apps, new users would be able to follow colleagues and join communities using steps. Using this “guided tours” feature, first time users can understand the value of the offering via intro screens that describe the experience.

IBM Connections4.“Better-than-ever” Files:

The File app in Connections is simple yet sophisticated in Connections 6. The web interface and the sync feature in the desktop app are simple.

As employees evolve how they communicate and what media they use, file distribution services need to evolve with the workforce. IBM Connections provides a simple to use interface and desktop sync for easy access to files. By providing large file uploads, rich text editor, new preview/editing features in File Viewer and search improvements, users can find and collaborate on files in an environment employees expect.

Now employees would be able to connect with each other and collaborate using various apps work through a single interface.

6.IBM Cloud Object Storage:

IBM provide hybrid storage sloutions to help organizations to deploy data storage both on-premises and on the public cloud. This enables them to place data where it makes the most sense for their applications and services.
