Today, IBM announced a new bundle where customers can buy IBM Connections + FileNet for a significant discount.
You may remember that one of the new features that was introduced in IBM Connections 3.0.1 was integration with FileNet. The integration brings the power, security, and scalability of an Enterprise Content Manager (ECM). With this integration you can use folders, check-in/check-out, workflow, document types and even round-trip editing natively within Connections (the last feature being my favorite ).
Why are we doing this?
Today's business environment is information and knowledge intensive. Today's social tools are designed to help you to leverage this exponential growth of information. Reliable content is essential, and connecting the right subject matter experts with the right content gives businesses real-time information in context - helping contribute to better business decisions made more efficiently. IBM Connections Content Edition V3 integrates IBM Connections' best-in-class social software with the IBM industry-leading Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform in a single affordable offering. This offering enables you to extend ECM services and function to a broad audience of business professionals using social software to help achieve their business goals.
Communardo Further Integrates Confluence with IBM Connections
Thu, Mar 6th 2014 5:12a Luis Benitez I've talked about integration of IBM Connections with Confluence in the past. Communardo has created 3 new integration points to bring together IBM Connections and Atlassian's Confluence. These integration points are important for organizations that may be using both products and want to provide more synergy between them. This is yet another example of IBM Connections as a social layer, where you can embed Connections into other business apps allowing you to bring social to the end users.

The Code Behind My IBM Connect 2014 Keynote Demo - Part 4
Mon, Feb 10th 2014 9:12a Luis Benitez And here we come. The 4th and final post on the code that I used during the IBM Connect 2014 keynote (the OGS!). If you need to catch up, here's Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.
The next part of code that we created for the keynote demo was the file viewer. It's worth noting that we first did this file viewer to render IBM SmartCloud Connections files inside our portal. In the end, we ended showing this directly in the community landing page (which is one of the new features we announced -- the [read] Keywords: connections
The Code Behind My IBM Connect 2014 Keynote Demo - Part 2
Thu, Feb 6th 2014 5:11a Luis Benitez Yesterday, I shared the initial piece of code that I got working in getting ready for the IBM Connect 2014 keynote demo. If you haven't seen that, take a look at that before going through this post.
As I explained yesterday, I wanted to get a Pinterest-like layout for the activity stream within the portal, and that's what I showed yesterday. I then wanted to take that example and also add that to the landing page of a community. That way, as a community manager I can not only see the latest [read] Keywords: connections
The Code Behind My IBM Connect 2014 Keynote Demo
Wed, Feb 5th 2014 5:12a Luis Benitez This is probably going to be part 1 of a series. Now that IBM Connect 2014 is done, I wanted to recap and share with the community in more detail what I showed at the keynote (a.k.a OGS/Opening General Session).
First, I assume that you've seen the keynote by now. If you haven't, here's the full session. If you skip to about 1:12:00 that's where my part begins.
I divided my demo into 3 parts:
