IBM Connections in the cloud you should notice a nice little surprise: you can now engage with your peers via audio and/or video chat. While you've always been able to instant message with your colleagues within IBM Connections, sometimes typing is just not fast enough. And with communication being roughly 70% non-verbal, video becomes an excellent capability to get business done... NOW!Today, when you log in to
Now, you can go from a post in IBM Connection and escalate to a voice call or a video call at no extra cost.
This is now available to Connections customers in the cloud. Plans start at $6/user/month so if you haven't started using this platform, you can start today with a 60-day free trial.
Of course, I had to test this out to check out how it looks. So reached out to Albert, and got him over video in just 2 seconds!
But wait... there's another surprise! Up until now you've been able to share files through Chat from your computer. Now you can now share files with a chat partner from your IBM Connections Files. Let's say that you get a question from the field asking for the latest roadmap for your product (you know this happens a lot right?). Now I can take a file from Connections, and when I do this, the recipient automatically gets reader access to the file! Magic!
Here's how that looks:
Enjoy your new capabilities !
