How To Edit Files in Sharepoint or Box with IBM Docs

View Comments
One of the capabilities that we highlighted as part of the IBM Docs 2.0 release was the new set of APIs to allow real-time co-editing of files in repositories other than IBM Connections (e.g. Alfresco, SharePoint, etc).

So first, what is IBM Docs ? The goal of IBM Docs is to make it easier for teams to create and allow for collaborative editing of word processing, spreadsheet and presentation documents in real time. This online editor provides key collaborative services such as coediting, file management and contextual commenting (so you can see who typed what).

At IBM Connect earlier this year, Jim Puckett, product manager for IBM Docs, shared an overview of IBM Docs which you can see here:

With the new set of APIs you can now build collaborative applications. So if you are an ISV looking for a way to embed co-editing, check out IBM Docs. Van Staub first shared how to integrate Docs with any app. Then he took it to the next level and describes how to edit files stored in SharePoint with IBM Docs.

Last week, IBM published a tech note that describes the process to set up IBM Docs to edit files stored in Box. This provides a common editing capabilities for files, irrespective of where they are stored.
