IBM Connections 6.0 Reviewer’s Guide
With this latest 6.0 release, we continue to build on the strong capabilities of IBM Connections by adding new and relevant features helping our customers to more effectively run their social enterprise environments. With IBM Connections 6 we added new functionality across the board from Communities, to Files, Search, Onboarding as well as the brand-new IBM Connections Homepage – Orient Me.
Major updates include:
- Advanced Community customization capabilities provide Community owners additional options for designing their custom Community. These changes allow a Community to be more useful and engaging, leading to increased community vitality. As Community owners build these vibrant communities, they can copy the existing layouts and designs from one Community into a new one.
- Files delivers added flexibility. Files users can select a top-level folder in their Files and mark it for sync. This permits the users to take the content of entire folders offline to their desktop and keep them synchronized with the files on the server.
- Relevant updates are brought front and center. A new optional program, IBM Connections Orient Me, can be used with Connections V6.0 to provide new home page capabilities that apply advanced analytics to surface information and people that are most relevant to an individual.
