Replacing IBM Connections Chat with Cisco options

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.
Cisco IBM partnership
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 Connections interface. This means the business needs to pick a product. Once ou swap the configs, the entire organization is affected for chat. If they do not have Jabber installed they could be missing communication and awareness will not be working.



Choosing a new UI/product means more overhead
. Having another chat service outside of IBM Connections just means you have more work to update, install and troubleshoot. Having it all on one product is the simple approach, but you may miss function that is not offered only with IBM Connections Chat

Switching between any of them is quite simple
. With a few basic requirements and a couple config lines, it is not hard to swap between what service is being used.  Keep in mind that the change affects everyone for chat features.  Meetings are a bit different.

Meetings gives you more options. You will need the URL of your organization's WebEx site to properly configure IBM Connections.  A side note is that if you want full support to include personal meetings then the WebEx id must match the IBM Connections Cloud id. Otherwise personal meetings are not an integrated option (they can still be done manually). Meetings can be deployed for everyone or some people

Our testing from there proved it to be successful and work easily.  Making everyone switch to another chat program for the testing was not fun because chat is all or nothing.  Having the option for the rich meeting environment of WebEx was appreciated by many. Jumping to another platform always frustrates someone though.

IBM and Salesforce shake hands and offer integrations
Thu, Aug 31st 2017 3:05p   Chris Miller
IBM and Salesforce have dropped the gloves, shook hands and both offered data and app integrations to further their partnership. In the recent announcements (previously it was just selling their Watson and Einstein products) they are doing deeper app and data intergration offerings. I think Salesforce got the raw end of the deal only offering IBM Weather data in Lightning apps. Weather data is pretty abundant, but IBM does own the rights to allThe Weather Company since buying them a couple

Canon Pixma MG3620 Wireless Printer review
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
