Organizations are striving to enhance engagement among internal employees and external third-party stakeholders. As it turns out, disconnected employees can be more detrimental to a company than any other factor. If the workforce is disconnected, then it results in loss of productivity, efficiency and innovation.


IBM (News - Alert) conducted a survey of 4,200 C-suite leaders recently. It was found that 90 percent of respondents opined that collaboration can be improved via social and digital channels.

To enhance collaboration, IBM launched a new cloud and on-premises social software that will allow clients to connect, collaborate and share information easily. The IBM Connections platform offers an open and fully integrated suite of social and real-time collaboration, analytics and content management tools.

The tools are securely delivered on any screen or device and enables organizations to enhance collaboration and engagement with all stakeholders including customers, employees, partners and others.  The right information can now be shared in a secure way to deal with emerging business or client opportunities.

IBM Connections 5, available on the IBM Cloud marketplace enables clients to deploy an end-to-end collaboration platform.  Using IBM Connections 5 organizations can personalize and share relevant content using simple file sharing and integrated social collaboration tools. 

Also the platform can be deployed on premises, via the cloud or in a hybrid environment. The solution can hence help teams to connect and collaborate in real-time for critical issues.  By employing enterprise file sync and document sharing features, team members and experts can access the most recent files. 

The hybrid capabilities allow companies to provide collaboration, analytics and content capabilities in all business processes that can be accessed on any device or business application including mobile, Web and desktop, thereby augmenting collaboration capabilities.

IBM’s Connections platform brings together employees in the corporate headquarters, regional offices and other places.  The solution goes beyond the Intranet and enhances employee engagement and increases productivity.  Employees are able to communicate easily, accelerate collaboration and take action instantly regarding new business opportunities, from anywhere.
