The IBM Redbooks app (available for Android and iOS) provides no-charge access to technical books and papers covering all aspects of IBM’s products and services. Since its release earlier this year, the app has already received over 20,000 downloads.
In this hands-on video I demonstrate the Solution Topics feature added to V1.1 of the app. This feature allows users to find Redbooks deliverables grouped by IBM’s strategic focus areas. It addresses focus areas for: some of the highlights of the app. I found the best features to be the speed with which I could navigate the catalog and the ability to save books locally onto my mobile device so I could read them even when I’m offline (perfect for my next plane journey).
- Big data and analytics
- Cloud computing
- Expert integrated systems
- Infrastructure solutions
- Mobile enterprise
- Social collaboration
I found the Solution Topics feature to be a much better alternative to using the search feature to find deliverables on these topics.
Have you downloaded the latest version of the IBM Redbooks app and used the Solution Topics feature? Which other focus areas would you like to see added? Let me know in the comments or connect with me on Twitter.
