HootSuite Announces New Integration with IBM Connections

View Comments
HootSuite has just announced the private Beta integration with IBM Connections platform. This is an incredible combination of two leaders:  HootSuite is the leading social media management system with nearly 7 million users. IBM Connections is the worldwide enterprise social software marketshare leader according to IDC for 4 years running.

Needless to say, I'm excited to see our eco system continue to grow with market leaders such as HootSuite integrating with IBM's social platform. This is just one of the many solutions we'll be talking about at IBM Connect 2014, so if you haven't registered yet, go do it now and take advantage of the early bird discount!

Hootsuite and IBM Connections users will be able to integrate content from IBM Connections into the HootSuite dashboard so it can be viewed and actioned alongside social media data from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social networks and applications. This IBM Connections integration is the first of its kind, no other platform brings your corporate social streams within IBM Connections and public social media together as efficiently.

IBM Connections customers will be able to manage their stream and:
  • Post and interact with status updates
  • Target status updates to groups, individuals, or make them public
  • Interact with files
  • Monitor feeds
  • Search the stream
  • Access user's profile information
  • and more! 
Check out how it looks below:
