OpenSocial Quickly Grows In The Enterprise and the IBM Connections App Ecosystem

View Comments
Many app developers have taken advantage of the new support for OpenSocial 2.0 for IBM Connections to build apps for the worldwide market leading social business platform.

TemboSocial, for example, has added peer recognition to IBM Connections and integrates into the activity stream and provides OpenSocial embedded apps . ISW who has built a gamification layer for IBM Connections has also taken advantage of the OpenSocial integration points. AppFusions has also used OpenSocial to integrate Atlassian's JIRA, Confluence and Stash with IBM Connections as shown in the demo below.

And there's plenty plenty more! In fact there's over 200 partners attending the Ready for Social Business Showcase at the IBM Connect reference.

With the #IBMConnect conference just a few days away, it's likely more app developers will start taking advantage of this as well. At the conference, there will be an App Dev Throwdown where 14 companies will showcase their new solutions. The winner will be featured during Wednesday morning's keynote.

The conference is also a great opportunity to get even more app developers on board.
