IBM Connections Docs 2.0 CR3 is available and it brings some long awaited enhancements.
With CR3 you can deploy Conversion application on a Linux machine, that means, that your whole Docs 2.0 environment can be deployed on Linux, you can also migrate the already deployed Conversion application from Windows to Linux.
Other cool thing is the “Track Change”, with this feature everyone who has editor access can see in a sidebar what changes were made and by whom. I saw this feature once in a demo and it looks great.
This time Social Connections took place in Vienna, so as it was at my doorstep I didn´t want to miss it. And it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was great, there were some nice Sessions and many important things were announced.
So for me, the most important announcements, from my perspective, were the following:
New Connections Application Catalog in the cloud.
With applications like Cisco Spark and Jabber.
IBM Connections 6.0 CR1, it will be available this month.
IBM Docs 2.0 CR3 which is coming next month.
With a cool feature, “change tracking” this looked great in a demo.
There will also be TLS 1.2 support.
“Docs Next” or “Docs Pink” which will be developed.
“3D Search” for Connections Pink codebase
Blown away by this, this will be a significant improvement against traditional search.
There were many good Sessions but I liked following the most:
“IBM Connections Adminblast”, by Christoph Stoettner and Nico Meisenzahl.
Christoph and Nico have done a great job, they update their session all the time, so it is always a pleasure to visit it.
