CMSWiRE - How 6 Enterprise Content Management Systems Support Collaboration
IBM's (news, site) social software, Lotus Connections, was most recently discussed at Lotusphere 2010, where version 2.5 flaunted the following new and integrated features:
Communities: The Community feature has been enhanced swanky new discussion forums that show the number of replies for each topic, and community owners can customize the look of their community and move widgets around on their home page.
Wikis: New built-in revision history enables users to check out previous versions.
Files: File sharing equals less inbox overload.
Mobile access: Mobile browser support for Lotus Connections Profiles (Apple iPhones or Nokia s60 devices).
Federated Updates: A new Updates tab displays relevant news items from across a user's social network.
Microblogging: Ah, the infamous status update, now featured in Lotus Connections Profiles. A profile "board" also enables users to post messages to other profiles.
Improved Search: Search all connections applications, and filter by tags, person, or time range.
