United States : IBM Unveils Cloud and On Premises Social Software to Help Clients Break Down Collaboration Barriers [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) IBM today introduced new cloud and on premises social software to help clients better connect, collaborate and share information with key stakeholders inside and outside their organizations. The latest version of the market-leading IBM Connections platform features an open and fully integrated suite of social and real-time collaboration, analytics and content management tools, all securely delivered on any screen or device.
Ranked by IDC as the worldwide market share leader in enterprise social software, IBM Connections helps organizations drive deeper collaboration and engagement with customers, employees, partners and other third-parties. The need to deepen engagement is quickly rising to the top of many board room agendas IBM s recent survey of 4,200 C-suite leaders found that 90 percent of respondents expect to increase collaboration through both social and digital channels. The challenge for many is sharing the right information from the right experts to address quickly emerging business or client opportunities, and to do so in a secure way.
IBM Connections 5 is now available on the IBM Cloud marketplace, making it faster and easier than ever for clients to deploy an end-to-end collaboration platform. IBM Connections 5 extends the company s leadership in both social and cloud technologies including more than 100 Software-as-Service (SaaS) solutions available today to help organizations personalize and share relevant content between internal and external users via simple file sharing and integrated social collaboration tools. The platform can be quickly deployed on premises, through the cloud or in a hybrid environment, allowing diverse global project teams to connect and collaborate in real-time on urgent activities. Enterprise file sync and document sharing features help ensure that all team members and experts have access to the most current and up-to-date files regardless of how, when and where they are accessed. With these new hybrid capabilities, companies can embed collaboration, analytics and content capabilities within existing business processes accessible on almost any device or business application mobile, Web and desktop making it easier than ever to engage anytime, anywhere.
There are few things as potentially detrimental to a company as disconnected employees. When a workforce is out of synch or out of touch, the whole organization suffers from lost productivity, efficiency and innovation, said Jeff Schick, Vice President of Social Software, IBM. With the open nature of today's business environment, organizations are looking to build new systems of people-centric engagement. The ability to bring key internal and external stakeholders into the conversation can facilitate a more collaborative, responsive and authentic way to work and deepen engagement."
