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) 1.0.1.1 now available

The following feature is new in IBM® Client Application Access (ICAA) feature pack 1.0.1.1.
  • 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

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!
Connections

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.
Administration

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.

Announcing IBM Connections Compliance for Mail


IBM Connections Compliance for Mail 
(formerly known as IBM Connections Archive Essentials Cloud) is a cost-effective email archiving solution that archives email while making data accessible for compliance and e-discovery.
  • Manage retention and deletion of all email in IBM Verse and SmartCloud Notes

  • Enable user access and recovery of archived mail

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

IBM launches IBM Connections Cloud Inform (IBM Inform) app
Tue, Nov 22nd 2016 9:44p   Chris Miller
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
