How To Access your IBM Connections Files Offline from your iOS Device
   

Last week I attended a conference in Cambridge, MA where I got to see Andrew McAfee give the keynote. I never get tired of listening to Andy. He does a great job on stage keeping everyone engaged, he's funny, and definitely very passionate about this whole Enterprise 2.0 space (of course, since he coined the term! ).

That was my first trip in 9 weeks and it was a good reminder of how many people are still offline for most of their work days. Previous to my current role, I used to be part of the sales organization where I would only have access to the network about 20% of the time any given week.

While I was in one of my meetings I needed to access one of my files stored in IBM Connections and the connectivity was not that great. Luckily, I had an offline copy of the file which I could still use and show to my peers.

I figured this could be a tip I could share with many of the IBM Connections users out there so I created a quick video showing how to do this. The trick is to use a free app that you can find on the iTunes App Store called Fresh Docs. The app is made by Zia Consulting and works over CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services). As you may remember, IBM Connections introduced support for CMIS back in 2010. And this opens the door for many providers to integrate with Connections, such as this free app:

Download the app and feel free to test it against our own test environment called Greenhouse. Here are the settings you'll need:

Hostname: greenhouse.lotus.com

HTTPS: On

Port: 443

Service Document: /files/basic/cmis/my/servicedoc

Company Home: On

That should do it! Enjoy!

As I get ready to go to IBM Insight next week it occurred to me that it's good timing to talk about a question that I've gotten recently.

How To Move Jive Content to IBM Connections
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 8:11a   Luis Benitez
I've been getting some questions recently on how to move from Jive (or other tools) to IBM Connections. To that end, I wanted to highlight our automated migration tools that we can use to move people, content and places from your existing solution into IBM Connections. Back in June of this year we had a webinar to announce these new automated tools to help customers move from Jive, SharePoint and others in to IBM Connections. You can watch the replay here to get all the details. Here's [read] Keywords: connections ibm ldd lotus sharepoint

5 Can't Miss Features of IBM Connections
Wed, Oct 8th 2014 6:12a   Luis Benitez
About two weeks ago, I was asked to present to a group of internal IBMers tips and tricks to get the most out of IBM Connections, our social collaboration platform. I actually reached out to my internal network and asked for suggestions on a good topic. Quickly, I realized that everyone had their own favorite feature or aspect of the product. That got me thinking that maybe it's worth me putting together a quick presentation that shows people how I get the most out of the product to impr [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm integration network
