||IBM Connections Cloud enhancements for December 2016
IBM has released what's new for IBM Connections Cloud for November 2016. Here is some of the updates.
|SmartCloud Notes |
|IBM Client Application Access (ICAA) 184.108.40.206 now available |
The following feature is new in IBM® Client Application Access (ICAA) feature pack 220.127.116.11.
- The latest release of IBM Client Application Access (ICAA) now works with IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO). IMSMO users can use ICAA to open applications from email messages or to open IMSMO from ICAA
|Outlook: Your organization directory is available automatically|
When addressing a new email or meeting invitation, IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook users can now automatically look up names in their organization through the IBM Address Book Provider without the need to set up an LDAP directory as was previously required to get name resolution functionality. Note: This feature is automatically available for new users, however existing IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook users must re-run setup in order to create a new profile before they can use the IBM Address Book Provider.
|Verse Mobile Android: Simple forms support for 2-step authentication |
- Support for your company userid instead of only cloud email address for customers using federated login with IBM SmartCloud.
Support for custom user and password field names on company login forms for companies using federated login with IBM SmartCloud
Note: Users installing Verse Mobile Android for the first time will experience a different login flow. They will first be asked for their cloud email address, the system will then determine the correct authentication endpoint and ask the user to either enter their company user id and password or just their password.
Verse Mobile and Traveler is now included as part of the IBM Verse trials
- Do you have a new client looking to use IBM Verse and wants to test out the mobile experience? IBM Verse trials now include the use of Traveler and IBM Verse mobile. Go ahead and test it out today!
|Join meetings by audio only |
- IBM Connections Cloud Meeting participants may now choose to join a meeting with audio only, or with audio and video. Please note that this functionality only applies to users accessing meetings via a Web browser.
|Administrators can now configure enforced TLS connections |
- IBM SmartCloud Notes now supports the use of enforced TLS connections. In certain scenarios, organizations must ensure that TLS encryption is used whenever messages are sent to specific domains. Administrators can now configure these in the IBM SmartCloud Notes administration site. See this Knowledge Center article for additional detail.

Tue, Jun 27th 2017 2:15p Chris Miller
The Canon Pixma MG3620 Wireless Printer is a affordable and easy to use wireless printer. That is after you get it connected to the network in your home. I walk you through the app setup and some quick features in the review video above. As someone that does not print often, the times I do want to is when I am mobile. Packaging The printer comes well contained with the power cable and two ink cartridges. No cable for a direct PC connection is included (for those that want to use the Cano

DB2 on Cloud is renaming and something else is now Db2 on Cloud??|
Wed, Jun 21st 2017 3:49p Chris Miller
IBM sent a very confusing email about DB2 on Cloud and renaming. I will just leave this here On June 22 a number of products will be renamed in our Db2 family of products That's right, Db2 "DB2 on Cloud" will be renamed "Db2 Hosted" and "dashDB for transactions" will be renamed "Db2 on Cloud. Now notice the DB becomes Db in the new name. I am not sure if that was a typo or on purpose to differentiate the products. Either way taking a product name and swapping a new product into it al

Goodbye to IBM Open Mic Webcasts - hello JUMP sessions|
Thu, May 11th 2017 2:54p Chris Miller
IBM Open Mic Webcasts have been a place for you to ask anything you wanted on a specific topic with IBM engineers and support. They quietly, and not sure what the name means, now call them JUMP sessions. I noticed this name change only due to a small notation made in a recent email announcing a webcast (JUMP??). However, the emails still look and read just like IBM Open Mic Webcasts. As a valued IBM client who has contacted technical support, you are invited to participate in an IBM Suppor
Replacing IBM Connections Chat with Cisco options|
Thu, May 4th 2017 7:21p Chris Miller
IBM and Cisco partnered together to integrate Cisco Jabber, Cisco Webex or Cisco Spark with IBM Connections. Here are some things we found in testing the integrations. Of course, we presume you have licenses for Cisco and IBM Connections. Your organization needs to choose a standard chat client and direction. You have numerous options with IBM Connections Chat including Sametime, Connections Chat and more. However, only one can be configured for all of the icons and links in the IBM Connecti

home8 has put together an Elder Care Security Kit including a security shuttle (hub), wide-angle and remotely controlled movable camera, a panic button and two tracking sensors.

Overall, the home8 Elder Care Security Kit is a good collection of gadgets to give you a better feeling that your elder family member is safe and can reach you (and you them) at any time. You can even peek in via video when needed. See the full review as we break dow
