At the IBM Connect conference in San Francisco, February 2017, IBM announced an exciting roadmap for IBM Connections.
Later this year you will be able to integrate anything IN to IBM Connections, or share any IBM Connections service OUT to other applications. The barriers between solutions will be eliminated.
Do you have a Sales service that would work better with teaming and tagging? Add Connections tags & communities.
Do you have alerts that need to be shown to a Community? Push them into the Community.
It's an exciting new world !
