Earlier this week, IBM released Workplace Blogging Preview on IBM alphaWorks. Weblog Preview provides basic weblog functionality, but it is also a Workplace Business Component -- that is, it takes advantage of Workplace infrastructure. This gives the weblogs consistency with other Workplace components for a number of features important to the enterprise, such as:
* integrated search
* roles and community
* administration and policy
* application templates
This preview requires IBM Workplace Collaboration Services 2.5.
I urge everyone to check out the a "special" preview of what the Workplace Blogging looks like! You can also view this PDF to see how to administer and configure Workplace Blogging.
The press has also been all over this announcement and you can read more below.
