How Social Business Tools Can Help In Disaster Situations
   

Remember how last week I mentioned that IBM is actively looking at documenting success stories of organizations that are embracing social software ? Well, here's another one that I wanted to highlight. This is a great story of how social business tools can help in disaster situations such as the earthquake that occurred last year in Haiti. I think it's also a great example of how non-profit organizations can leverage social business platforms.

Colleagues in Care turned to IBM's social business in the cloud capabilities to build a social network of doctors, where each doctor could highlight their skills. That way doctors could be matched to the needs of a particular situation, thereby getting the most value out of the available resources.

This is where LotusLive comes into play. Take a peek at this 4 minute video and let me know what you think.

Great story, right? Go ahead and share it!

Jabborate Brings Jabber and WebEx into IBM Connections
Tue, Jul 15th 2014 6:12a   Luis Benitez
This is one of those cases were timing couldn't have been better. Just a few days ago someone was asking me about the possibility to integrate Cisco's Jabber and WebEx with the market leading social collaboration platform IBM Connections. Anyway, then as I was catching up with my feeds I ran into a new presentation from Jabborate. Don't you just love it when knowledge comes to you instead of you having to go out and search for it? So here's the deal. There are 3 types of integration [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm exchange exchange instant messaging integration microsoft

I just got confirmation that IBM Connections 5.0 is now ready for download ! This has been quite an exciting quarter as we've been building up to this day ever since I published the trailer back in April.

The new IBM Connections Desktop plug-ins for Microsoft Windows have just been released to our app catalog. There's a couple of things that I would like to call out here. First, IBM Connections 5.0 will be available for download next week. This is the first time that we have released the desktop plugins before the actual new server code is available. This is because the new desktop plugin also adds new features even if you are not using 5.0.
