Introducing IBM Connections 4!

Share this post:

Today we announce the IBM Connections 4, the market leading social business platform. We are excited to share with you all the great new capabilities in Connections 4. To help you better understand what is in Connections 4, I will share videos on the various elements of Connections, starting with the home page experience:

Here are some of the new capabilities you will find in IBM Connections 4:

3rd Party Activity Stream Entries: Work with external apps within Activity Stream and act on those entries using embedded apps

Community and Deployment Metrics: Find out who in your organization is using which IBM Connections applications and how often by using the new Metrics feature. Metrics data is available for the entire product as well as for individual communities.

Mobile Apps: Access IBM Connections from a mobile device using an app designed specifically for that device. With the Connections 4 release, these native apps have been enhanced, and to support the enhancements, there is now a database associated with the Mobile application and a configuration file that administrators can edit to customize the native applications.

IBM Connections Mail: Gives users the ability to read / respond to mail and read calendar from the Connections browser UI. A new Mail option is displayed in the navigation bar. Click Mail to access your email inbox, and perform some basic mail actions. A new Calendar option is displayed in the navigation bar. Click Calendar to access your IBM Lotus Notes® or Microsoft Exchange calendar.
