How to Interact with IBM Connections Files in iPad and Mac apps

View Comments
This is it! IBM Connect 2014 is now 10 days away and the news just keep coming in. If you haven't registered yet, what are you waiting for? Do it now!

Are you a mobile user that always needs access to your files ? Perhaps you are already using apps such as Goodreader, Notability, Pages, etc and now you want to interact with IBM Connections files directly from those apps?

File Jockey is your answer. This new integration adds some "magic" to IBM Connections (don't' worry, I'll spare you the details) so you can seamlessly interact with your files from your favorite mobile and desktop app. For example, on the Mac, you can use ForkLift to get to your files directly from Finder. On your iPad, you can use Goodreader to annotate PDF files, take meeting minutes, and manage your files. 

The trick is finding any app that supports something called WebDAV. If your favorite app supports WebDAV, then this is the solution for you. Another approach is to look for apps that support CMIS since that's the native protocol Connections supports as I discussed on this post from 2011.
