Demo: IBM Watson Workspace for Sales
Mon, Nov 14th 2016 4:11p   Luis Benitez
If you watched the last demo of IBM Watson Workspace for Marketing this will be part two of that series. This demo is focused on the day of the life of sellers and how IBM Watson Workspace can make their life better. If you missed the breakout session hosted by Rob Ingram, Rishi Vaish and Alan Lepofsky at World of Watson, this is a good way to catch up. The video demonstrates how IBM Watson Workspace uses its cognitive capabilities to get you the information you need in context without

As things settle from the IBM World of Watson conference two weeks ago, today I wanted to take the opportunity to share one of the demos that was shown in a breakout session hosted by Rob Ingram, Rishi Vaish and Alan Lepofsky. The video that demonstrates how IBM Watson Workspace can improve your life as someone who works in marketing. It makes team collaboration easy and saves you time by bringing everything together and summarizing it for you (using some cool Watson services) so you can take

IBM Watson Workspace -- Code Talks So Here's The First Samples
Thu, Nov 3rd 2016 7:20a   Luis Benitez
Time for the next post on IBM Watson Workspace. In this post I wanted to share some code samples that could help you get going in your development of apps for IBM Watson Workspace using the IBM Watson Work Services and APIs. I know many developers, including myself, learn a lot from code samples (probably more than using actual API documentation). So to build on my post from earlier this week, we have published the first code samples into the Watson Work org in Github and there should be more

Building apps with IBM Watson Work Services
Tue, Nov 1st 2016 7:10a   Luis Benitez
Last week we launched IBM Watson Workspace and IBM Watson Work Services and one of the crtical aspects of this launch is the platform and extensibility provided by these offerings. Miguel Estrada, Joe Russo, and myself had a session at IBM World of Watson 2016 to talk about the capabilities of the platform. To recap, the idea of IBM Watson Work Services is to provide a platform that understands conversations in context. IBM Watson Workspace is a great example of what you can do with that pla

Yesterday, IBM unveiled a new category called IBM Watson Work and two offerings available to all IBM World of Watson conference attendees: IBM Watson Work Services and IBM Watson Workspace. If you've been following me for a while, you know I'm a big fan of integrations, app dev, and platforms. Well, today I'm happy to share the news that IBM Watson Workspace works with IFTTT.

We are just one week away and I've been getting some questions on the live streaming schedule for IBM World of Watson 2016 (WoW). I'm happy to share that the most important keynotes will be live streamed via IBMGo. Of course, one you can't miss is on Tuesday @ 4pm PT. Inhi Cho Suh will be sharing some cool updates on what's going on with Project Toscana (among other announcements related to the Future of Work).

We are now 31 days away from World of Watson! So what's going to happen at World of Watson? First, let's start with Imagine Dragons! Grammy award-winning rockers and Las Vegas hometown heroes Imagine Dragons will perform exclusively for World of Watson attendees.

GSX Provides Real-Time Monitoring for IBM Connections

IBM Connections allows customer to choose how they want to run and get values from the platform. For example, there are organizations that would choose to run in cloud for a "hands-free" environment. No need to worry about outages, upgrades, etc. Other organizations would need the flexibility and customizability that an on-premises deployment would provide.

Tue, May 10th 2016 6:20a   Luis Benitez
I always like to highlight when developers and partners extend our IBM Connections Cloud platform. Today I wanted to highlight VideoBio who have built a very nice solution to allow users to quickly share video messages with others. So how does it work? First, you can go to your profile, or someone else's profile and click on the VideoBio button. After recording the demo, it's automatically shared with your IBM Connections network and you can optionally choose to share via Facebook

What's New and Coming in IBM Connections and IBM Docs for Q2 2016
Mon, May 9th 2016 3:10a   Luis Benitez
Hours ago, IBM just made another update to IBM Connections Cloud. To start off, community managers and administrators have access to even more metrics. If you are an organization administrator, you can easily see how your user base is getting business value out of IBM Connections. For example, you can track Connections Cloud events such as every time that a user reads a blog entry, creates a To do item in an Activity, updates a wiki page, or follows a Community. You can drill down on one app

ICYMI: The XPages Runtime is Now Available in IBM Bluemix
Fri, May 6th 2016 8:31a   Luis Benitez
Earlier this year, we had announced the availability of the XPages runtime as beta in IBM Bluemix. Then at IBM Connect, XPages on Bluemix was featured during the keynote where a quick app was built integrated with Watson to quickly tag / categorize images using the Watson Image Analyzer service. So in case you missed it, earlier this week, the XPages runtime for IBM Bluemix went from Beta to full release, generally available. This allows developers already familiar with the XPages fram

New IBM Connections Desktop Plug-Ins for Mac and Windows
Thu, Apr 28th 2016 8:51a   Luis Benitez
Today, we've released our monthly update to the IBM Connections Mac and Windows desktop plug-ins. I'll cover some of the updates here and will start with Mac since that's what I use. In this release, the context menu in Finder has been updated to streamline access to the IBM Connections actions. Now, when you right click on a synced file, you can see when it was last synced, share with individuals or groups, lock/unlock, modify metadata and more. Here's a snapshot of how it looks.

How To Edit Files in Sharepoint or Box with IBM Docs
Mon, Apr 25th 2016 12:45p   Luis Benitez
One of the capabilities that we highlighted as part of the IBM Docs 2.0 release was the new set of APIs to allow real-time co-editing of files in repositories other than IBM Connections (e.g. Alfresco, SharePoint, etc). So first, what is IBM Docs ? The goal of IBM Docs is to make it easier for teams to create and allow for collaborative editing of word processing, spreadsheet and presentation documents in real time. This online editor provides key collaborative services such as coediting, fil

From IBM Connect: Visualizing the IBM Connections Profiles Data
Wed, Apr 13th 2016 10:01a   Luis Benitez
One of the great things of IBM Connect is all the great content that's shared. I remember going to my first conference and readily absorbing as much content as possible and putting it into practice. Of course, with so much content, sometimes you can't attend all sessions. It's all good, however, when speakers choose to share their content in platforms such as Slideshare. I recently ran into this deck that Matt Milza shared and figured I would re-share as it's a great example of what can b

As we get rolling into the second quarter of the year, I'll be sharing soon what to expect in terms of deliveries for IBM Connections Cloud for this quarter. First, I wanted to take the time and summarize the deliveries that we did in Q1 and had been announced at IBM Connect 2016 (and did you see that we'll be at the Moscone Center next year on February 20 - 23, 2017 ? Sweet !) So what became available in the first three months of the year ? Jim Puckett, one of the product managers for IBM

TimeToAct recently announced new capabilities for IBM Connections Communities as part of their XCC Social Intranet solution. If you are not familiar with XCC, it's a lightweight Web Content Management System that integrates into IBM Connections. It enhances IBM Connections with classic Web Content Management capabilities and thus integrates the two antipodes of an intranet, i.e. peer-to-peer collaboration with internal (top-down) communications. For example, you can use the Atom/RSS

Webinar: Addressing the Crisis in Employee Engagement
Tue, Mar 15th 2016 3:10a   Luis Benitez
Today, studies estimate that there's a $500 billion lost in productivity and higher attrition since only 37% of global workers are considered to be engaged in the workplace. IBM's #NewWayToWork Futurists Insights share that 74% of respondents to a survey define a "social" business as one that uses social technology to foster collaboration among, customers, employees and partners yet, only 45% of companies are using social to identify internal talent or key contributors.

As part of the IBM + Box partnership, IBM today has released Box support for IBM Verse. This new integration allows IBM Verse users to easily send files stored in Box to others. You might remember hearing about this as part of the keynote at IBM Connect 2016 earlier this year. If you missed the keynote and the demos, here's the replay. IBM Verse users that have this feature will be able to bring in their Box files when composing a message. In the file picker, they'll be able to brow

From IBM Connect 2016: XPages App Built on Bluemix Using Watson and IBM Connections Cloud
Wed, Feb 10th 2016 2:16a   Luis Benitez
Last week at IBM Connect 2016, Chris Crummey demoed a sample app built on the XPages runtime running on Bluemix. The app combines IBM Connections Cloud, IBM Watson Analytics and IBM Bluemix. The idea is that the app allows you to upload images and then uses IBM Watson (the Visual Recognition Service) to help with automatic classification of the files. Based on the image that has been uploaded, Watson will then suggest some tags to use with the file. Here's a recap of that demo: Her
