I’ve been getting some questions recently on how to move from Jive or other tools to IBM Connections. To that end, I wanted to highlight our automated migration tools that we can use to move people, content and places from your existing solution into IBM Connections.
Today, we are updating IBM Connections, the market-leading enterprise social collaboration platform. Specifically, today we are releasing IBM Connections 5.0 CR1 for on premises customers.
Kristin Keene, Events Manager for ConnectED formerly known as Lotusphere and Connect joined Oliver Heinz’s monthly ICS Community webcast today, and she shared some more information about the upcoming event:Why the change?Based on decisions with business partners, clients and experts, IBM determined they had swung the pendulum too far away from their technical roots with the most recent conferences. People felt that the LOB and marketing content was starting to overshadow the event.

Lots of updates for IBM ConnectED! Per the site, “In 2015, IBM Connect will transform into an even more in-depth technical event, “IBM ConnectED” that provides the deep ‘nuts and bolts’ technical experience that is so important to our long-standing technical community.” I am very excited about this, as the technical content is why I go to Connect/Lotusphere.
