Skype, Tungle, & Mac application sharing comes to the IBM Cloud Web Meetings

View Comments

Today, IBM announced a long list of updates to its collaboration cloud offering. I tried to count all the new features, but there are simply too much to count them manually. A rough estimate comes to about 150 new features!

One of the things that's very attractive of the new updates is its seamless integration between mail and other collaborative services, whereas other vendors force you to go from module to module.

Additionally, I'm really excited about the integration with Tungle. If you haven't signed up to Tungle, you should do it today. It simplifies the process of scheduling meetings with people outside of your company (which probably means that you don't have access to their calendar availability). Tungle fixes this and it's now directly integrated within LotusLive so you can easily schedule meetings with your LotusLive contacts.

Moreover, the Communities component of Lotus Connections is now part of LotusLive which has been a popular customer request. Other changes within Lotus Connections include the ability to tag people and add custom profile fields.

Lastly, but not least, Mac users rejoice: application sharing is now available for Mac users. This is in addition to the nifty free web meeting application for iPhone/iPad.

Here's a video that walks you through the new features:
