Here is Whats New in IBM Connections 5.0 that IBM recently released: A nice list of features have been added. Here are some highlights
IBM Connections logo

Installation and Configuration
  • New Cognos® installation verification tool and simplified installation and configuration
  • Simplified post-installation tasks for IBM Connections Content Manager for Libraries
  • New system requirements and support

IBM Connections Mobile app

The administrator can enable File Sync and Push Notifications.


Downloading executables for components

You can download executables such as Polls and Surveys in Communities, the Ephox editor, and IBM File Viewer from Passport Advantage®

Administration

IBM Connections (common):

  • The New (or Next Generation) theme that was introduced as an optional customization in 4.5 CR 1 is now the default theme in 5.0.
  • You can disable @mentions throughout the product.
  • External users are supported in version 5.0

Communities:
  • In version 5.0 when a user deletes a community, it is not deleted permanently, rather it is moved to a trash area. Provided it is not purged from trash, the community can be restored.

Files:
  • Enable Sync for files in the Files application so that users can so work offline with files in the Sync folder and keep them synchronized when others are collaborating on them.
  • The Thumbnail view is a gallery of images that represent files. The thumbnail shows the file's status (private, community, or shared externally), sync status, and whether version conflicts might exist. Hovering over a thumbnail image opens its reverse side where file details appear and actions to download and preview are available.
  • File Preview becomes available when you click anywhere on the back of the thumbnail to get an advance viewing of the file

IBM Connect 2017 - my session information
Tue, Jan 10th 2017 7:31p   Chris Miller
I was excited to see I am speaking at IBM Connect 2017 in San Francisco. Catch me on Feb 22 at 10am PST on the second floor of Moscone West, room 2020 (this may change as we get closer). This content overall will be a new and positive change for the IBM Connect event. Look for a track on your standard ICS technologies, with the added bonus of learning new skills and seeing new ideas to spark some interest in your future plans with IBM.

Sengled Pulse JBL speaker LED light review | CES2017
Fri, Jan 6th 2017 4:30p   Chris Miller
Sengled makes a few LED bulbs with cool features. From CES 2017 we take a look at Pulse that puts together a JBL speaker via Bluetooth inside the LED bulbs. You can have a master and satellites connected for up to 8 bulbs in a full audio experience. The Sengled Pulse fits into any standard bulb socket, but the shape of the lamp or fixture makes a big difference. They are made perfectly for can type light fixtures. They also work on lamps. However, due to their size and shape they will not fit

Phonetic Computer Eyewear product review
Mon, Dec 19th 2016 8:34p   Chris Miller
Digital eye strain has been a concern of mine for years. Blue light streams from the monitors at me for a good six hours or more a day. Phonetic Computer Eyewear makes a myriad of glasses to help combat it while keeping up with style. I almost put up pictures of me actually in them but selfies are tough. I have a special coupon code for my readers at the end. I honestly have tried and worn a competitor brand for many years. They were considered gaming and computer glasses and carry a visibl

IBM Connect 2017 registration is open
Mon, Dec 5th 2016 3:02p   Chris Miller
IBM Connect 2017 registration has been opened up and this proves to be a whole new conference. The conference also moved to San Francisco and to the end of February (instead of late January). Pricing has a slew of rates and levels which adds to the confusion of when and what you should register for. I say this because I see they are trying to draw some people in for partial time and the EXPO without them having to buy a full conference pass. There is also a middle level that tosses in the k

GM has pushed the OnStar service ahead with the incorporation of IBM Watson into OnStar Go. GM is calling it the first cognitive mobility platform". A car that starts to think about your surroundings? The idea is that OnStar Go will deliver personalized content and information via the screen above as it learns your behaviors and needs.

IBM recently launched the IBM Connections Cloud Inform (IBM Inform) app. The app is geared for administrator to show the health of the IBM Connections Cloud. The app provides information at the individual service component level (i.e. Verse, Meetings, Traveler, etc.) and will send push notifications from IBM as status changes. The main screen is the status page with a glaring check mark on green for good and a yellow exclamation on yellow for alert. In the Status by Service page you can ed
