New Bundle Available: Connections & FileNet
   

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.

Here's a demo of the integration (or you can view it full screen here):










The new offering is called IBM® Connections Content Edition V3 and you can find the official announcement letter is here.

Put it in the books! For the 6th year in a row, Gartner has placed IBM Connections as a Leader in their recently released 2014 Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace.

Brand Image and Security Concerns – All the More Reason to Become a Social Business
Thu, Sep 4th 2014 2:12p   Luis Benitez
To get the full benefit of social business, you must inject it into your key business processes for stronger customer engagement and workforce collaboration. But many enterprises are afraid to fully embrace social business, with 30 percent of them citing security concerns and perceived risk as major adoption barriers, according to IBM's 2014 Business Tech Trends report. But these fearful enterprises need to realize the true nature of social business. At its core, social business is a gra [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm policies enterprise security

Mon, Aug 25th 2014 1:12p   Luis Benitez
Last week I told you about the amazing results that Pacesetters are seeing from deploying social business solutions, according to IBM's 2014 Business Tech Trends report. This week I'm going to tell you what your enterprise can do to catch up in social based on those Pacesetters’ key practices. The Business Tech Trends report found that Pacesetters are using analytics as their fuel and integration as their breakaway move. So, what does this mean for social?

Mobile Comparison of IBM Connections & Yammer
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 6:16a   Luis Benitez
I typically get questions about how collaboration platforms compare, especially in a post-PC, mobile first era. The term was made popular by Steve Jobs in 2007 (though first coined at MIT), and 3 months ago Microsoft CEO said the company had entered the post-PC era. So mobile.. a critical capability. Can't be without it. It's essential. So here we are in 2014 -- a post-PC / Mobile First era, so let's take a look at comparing the mobile collaboration capabilities provided by IBM, with th [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm apple enterprise microsoft mobile office sharepoint twitter wiki

Mon, Aug 18th 2014 6:12a   Luis Benitez
Today I wanted to share this video which has an amazing story on how the United Nations uses collaboration and social business technologies together and apply them to solve world problems with IBM Connections. Salem Avan, Chief of Knowledge Management, shares how the UN charter of 1945 establishes how they are responsible for saving succeeding generations from the scourge of war. To do that, he says, it was required to take a collective approach. So, in 2009, they started take advantage [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm email

By now, I'm sure that you are aware of TemboSocial. They have been adding value to IBM Connections, the market leading enterprise social collaboration platform, and it's some great work and I've talked about them in the past. The first add-on they created was a bit over 2 years ago when they first introduced The Hive for IBM Connections, a social recognition module.
