Make the Move to IBM Connections 4.5 and IBM Connections Content Manager with this new RedBook

Share this post:

Earlier this year, we released IBM Connections 4.5. The big focus of IBM Connections 4.5 is the new Content Manager add-on which brings the power of content management and combines it with the power of the IBM Connections social platform. The add-on is part of the core IBM Connections installer so there’s nothing else to install!

Content Manager:

  • Combines the ease of use of social tools with the power of a structured hierarchy.
  • Includes document check-in and check-out, version control, approval routing, metadata, taxonomy, document types and nested folders.
  • Makes content management tools as easy to use as social networking tools.

This add-on also allows Quickr customers to upgrade to a better experience. To facilitate this transition, we’ve provided a migration tool to our customers at no extra cost (as you can see in slide 18 below). This allows them to take their libraries from Quickr Domino or Quickr for Portal and migrate them to IBM Connections Content Edition.

If you’ve been waiting to make the move until the RedBook was available, then wait no more! The RedBook is now available at: Making the move to IBM Connections 4.5 and IBM Connections Content Manager.

The documentation for the tool is here in our public wiki so you can start seeing how it’s going to work. If you are interested in getting access send me a note and we’ll get you going!
