"An internet rd that allows you to connect an entire company"

What do you like best?

Whenever I go to work meetings I indicate that IBM is a company that has been dedicated for many years to develop software, applications and tools to strengthen large-scale enterprise environments. Within the great variety of software that I have used from the IBM company I must mention the one that I like the most and the one that has made our company grow the most, this software is IBM Connections, an ideal software to create the necessary connection between several managers and addresses of a company, since it has at its disposal web 2.0 social networking tools to connect workers who make working life in a company. I use this software because it is my channel to communicate internally with my company; it has very important tools such as Blogs, information bookmarks, web communities to discuss issues associated with the interests of our company, has metrics to evaluate the performance of each of the tools, and the use given by workers, has home page, user forums. As you can see IBM Connections has many tools that foster business synergy.

What do you dislike?

This software is so complete and well thought out by IBM's technical department that its tools contribute to strengthening empathy and teamwork in our company. IBM Connections is a software that allows to formalize the processes of corporate organization, and nourishing the internal social relations between the workers and the business interests. I have no negative appreciation for IBM Connections.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Using IBM Connections for the first time in your company is to open a portal to a new 2.0 labor organization, strengthening your company's internal social networks and in turn teaching workers to have better processes of teamwork, collaboration and intrdisciplinary work. If your company does not have a software of these characteristics I recommend you to acquire it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All the tools of this software and how I have put them into practice in my work have considerably improved teamwork, the exposure of my projects, and excellence as a worker. I mention this because each of your tools have helped to connect us more as a company, enhancing teamwork and the values of collaboration, loyalty and excellence.

"I manage social networks of companies with this software."

What do you like best?

Some of my clients have asked me for support to manage the organization and communication within their company, and for this I use IBM Connections, a wonderful software created by IBM, which I call "corporate social networks", since it has many interesting functions that allow to strengthen the business synergy, as well as to strengthen and project the image of the company abroad. This software has blogs, forums, libraries, widgets, home pages, performance statistics, bookmarks and many other elements that make it the best in the market. The IBM company has been very careful in creating a software like this one, it has so many tools that it is incredible to be able to count on them in any company. Every large company should use this software to meet their work goals.

What do you dislike?

In order to use this software to its maximum capacity, you need computer knowledge since each of these tools must be configured according to the requirements of the company that contracts the service.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

IBM Connections is the future, it is the software that opens the door to organization and business management. I already mentioned that this software has good tools that promote internal communication and business synergy, a necessary value to increase business productivity.

" Multiple tools to strengthen business synergy."

What do you like best?

In my work it is important to maintain a good communication and information channel with each of our employees, in addition to having a good communication strategy to expose each of our activities to the users of our services, which is why we hired the IBM Connections service, a functional tool that allows us to manage our social networks, blogs, forums, libraries, home pages, user profiles, and other tools necessary to keep our staff informed and adequately expose the objectives of our fire brigade so that the population has updated information on fire prevention methods, telephone numbers of our central and recommendations by our fire brigade to avoid accidents.

What do you dislike?

This software is so multifunctional and has so many tools that it has no weaknesses or deficiencies in the service it offers me. Every day I use this software to its maximum capacity taking advantage of each one of its benefits.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If one of the functions in your job is to use many accounts, whether they are banks, email, institutional portals and so on, I recommend that you use Roboform, an exceptional software that allows you to manage your passwords and be more efficient at work.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I always say to each one of the members of our fire brigade, "it's not just about having knowledge about extinction and fire prevention, but you have to know how to socialize that information to the population," and this software has been vital to achieve this goal. Every time I use IBM Connections to manage our social networks, we can provide all our knowledge to the population and thus minimize the risk of accidents. A software that has allowed me to expose my knowledge to save lives.

It puts at the disposal tools for analysis with business social networks allowing to improve decision making for the growth of companies. The tools facilitate advanced business communications with collaborative tools. The employees can download an installable program on the computer that synchronizes the documents that are with the web. I like is the security of the information that is based on the high standards of the data, it can be shared and reach the other members of the organization.

A monthly subscription to this software seems expensive to me. The file viewer is a slow and more difficult to handle than a normal file. At first, it is difficult to understand the interface and all functions.

Because it is a social network for companies and helps you communicate, collaborate and create strong relationships with more users. You stay connected in the office or mobile device. IBM Connections have the following applications to help you on a daily basis; Homepage, Blogs, Bookmarks, Activities, Communities, Files, Forums, Metrics, Profiles and Wikis. If the user would like to share information he can create a network of useful contacts, or he can follow him to the people.

What do you dislike?

One of the main flaws that this application can have is the cost of the paid version. since for medium-sized companies it can often be inaccessible to have the budget that is required to acquire this great application for business use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Continue giving a good support to the application and lower the cost of the application in the vesion pays

In medium or large companies communication at the moment of working in a group is very important and at the same time very difficult ... because it represents big problems. this application allows you to solve this with the different plugin that counts as: Activities, Notes, emails, file sharing among others; that allow you to handle the same information among those in charge of performing a corresponding job.

"An excellent social communicating platform"

What do you like best?

It's a great social network for your company to communicate with more users, and it's so easy to share data and information with your colleagues with the capability of the email and the dependability of the planning and calendar functions and most importantly it is very user friendly with the design of the product so it's easy for everyone to use

What do you dislike?

Really the only fault I find with IBM Connection is the customer support response time, it is quiet high, while I understand there are other customers than just myself but I just wish they would resolve this issue as it is very frustrating when you are needing assistance right away so I hope this is something that will improve with customer support response time

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for an easy to use sofware, IBM Connection is the answer as it is very easy to use with a friendly interface which allows the user to quickly adapt but does have very long wait time for customer support to respond.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IBM Connection allows me to access my HR forms,IBM portal , links to events and it's very helpful in sharing any file through this program

"Share documents and information from the cloud"

What do you like best?

The Calendar and Meeting Schedule window in the Software is unique, reliable, easy to use and generates a great performance, it also allows access to the email through the browser and not as an installed application, thus making its use more practical, and of course their communities to share documents and knowledge have been the best solutions provided by this software to the company.

What do you dislike?

IBM Conections has some details, such as the lack of a chat function to communicate at the moment, and the fact that some screens are very unintuitive make it necessary to practice a lot to use the software properly.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

IBM Connections has some faults in terms of its uselessness, and the lack of the chat feature greatly undermines the performance of the software, but its key features such as its calendar windows, and meeting rooms balance the errors exposed, plus if we add the template option adaptable to any organization and the mail window as the main way to share documents, the software becomes very competitive in the market.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IBM Connections is the tool preferred by the company to connect and collaborate in all types of areas (project management, knowledge management, collaboration and sharing ideas), in addition to the main software you can use e-mail, virtual rooms and calendars to improve communication. IBM Conections is used throughout the organization and we access it from any browser through the cloud

"IBM Connections, great for communication"

What do you like best?

I like that you are able to create different communities to follow. This is good fo our organization because there is a lot of information that we share across departments and using the wiki to store that information was a bit clunky. This created an easier way to keep up with changes in infromation between departments.

What do you dislike?

Once I learned how to use it and became moe acclimated with it, I was no longer intimidated by it. The only thing that I don't like is that I can't color code emails from my contacts. Lol. I can do that in Lotus Notes.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Definitely scheduling things on my calendar for meetings became easier, especially when I used Lotus Notes before for that which aftera while becamse very clunky and slow. Filtering my emails is also easier through IBM Connections as well.

"Tool that facilitates business interactions"

What do you like best?

IBM Connections was designed to help companies make the most of their human resource potential. Using this platform, you can contact everybody inside the company, and access every file you may be interested in. Its blogs, activities, and communities are where business information and most of the issues are discussed, with the software being in charge of the security and protection properties. As a result, the company saves an incredible amount of time, and there is no risk that valuable information will leak out of the company's hands.I like it because if you have any doubts, you can post it in the community and you can get the expert answers from people who have come across those same issues.In searching In addition to simple searching ,widget called Bookmarks can dynamically refine search results with the user identifying users or other tags of interest to them.

What do you dislike?

The only thing i dislike is the the UI of the activities component really needs a redesign. Currently this component was there already from the beginning of IBM Connections and never got a UI .Functionality wise the UI is working as per the expectation but there are too many words instead of graphical content.It would be better if we have that .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it so that it makes the life of the people in a company easier in a lot of ways .

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our company it serves as a portal for user's social collaboration.There is a widget called profiles which provides an online directory of people within our organization.there is another widget called bookmarks which is a social bookmarking service which allows people to bookmark web-content, tag it, and share it.

"IBM Connections es una herramienta muy pero que muy útil"

What do you like best?

Me gusta que las conexiones de IBM permitan la integración de correo electrónico, colaboración y edición de documentos. la solución combina servicios de correo electrónico, mensajería instantánea, edición de documentos en línea, conferencia web, uso compartido de archivos y redes sociales en un paquete de implementación simplificado.

Dicha herramienta de comunicación altamente segura para la interconexión de organizaciones con clientes, socios, participantes, etc. cuenta con herramientas avanzadas que combinan información de correo electrónico y otros medios.

Tiene un excelente panel de control de funciones, intercambio de archivos, comunidades, edición de documentos en línea y mensajería junto con correo electrónico y calendario para web, PC y móvil.

What do you dislike?

Es una excelente herramienta para las comunicaciones, pero creo que deberían promover un plan de adivinación de las cualidades de IBM para que cada día más organizaciones puedan usarlo, y de esta manera permitir que este sea el único medio de comunicación con todas las organizaciones.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recomiendo a la organización que organice su equipo de confianza, establezca el perfil estratégico, los objetivos, los objetivos a corto, mediano y largo plazo y determine las acciones, revise las herramientas de IBM para definir finalmente su utilidad en el crecimiento de la organización.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Actualmente, no hay ningún problema comercial con IBM. En la organización, las herramientas de IBM han proporcionado muchos beneficios, tales como; archivando la consolidación de la información del proceso de financiación de proyectos productivos, el análisis de datos para la toma de decisiones, evitando la duplicación de información, salvaguardando la información confidencial y mejorando los tiempos de respuesta entre las autoridades centrales y regionales.

"Shared files as if they were in your own computer"

What do you like best?

It doesn't add any new interface to your computer, if you have basic knowledge around navigating through files it's enough, not adding any extra layer also means that it doesn't add any extra work so it's efficient enough to not become a problem.

What do you dislike?

Perhaps too simplistic, but it really isn't something to complain about because its core is the simplicity. Sometimes the searchs are a bit slow, it could be improved, also the web interface (which you don't have to use) could be more modern and not look like an old website.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have any thought about sharing files for a group of people and they aren't all IT members this is the most easy to use program.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a group of analysts, programmers and IT members with a changing environment and the best way to share those changes, to share any file or idea (or a new tutorial or metodology) is through this program, some are not

"Just okay. "

What do you like best?

I like the community function and the collaboration it fosters, I also like the ability to share files with only specific people.

What do you dislike?

I wish that the instant messaging feature was a bit more prominent. I would use it more if it were in a place that was more easily accessible.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is what you make it. The way that your company implements Connections will determine its success.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because of the way our corporate network is set up we don't have any kind of shared drive that we can use to share files among people in the office. With Connections we are able to share completed reports and working documents either in a community or in the files app. It has reduced paper waste and increased the speed and flow of information in our office and in our district, and ultimately has saved us time and money.
