One of those moments is happening now – businesses are deploying exciting new collaborative tools to enable a more dynamic, increasingly mobile and idea-laden workforce to create the new “social business.”
But there’s a distinction to this phenomenon: In order to fully capitalize on this new collaborative opportunity, businesses must lay the groundwork for a smarter workforce. They need the integrated capabilities for an evolving social and collaborative business. And at this InformationWeek and IBM executive event, you’ll hear what leading companies are doing today to meet this challenge.

This document provides recommendations for performance tuning of IBM Connections 4 Connections based on the experience of the IBM Collaboration Solutions Performance team. However, the optimal tuning and the resulting system capacity can be affected by many factors, including the characteristics of the load on the system and the hardware used, including servers, disk subsystems, network topology, and more. Therefore the recommendations in this document should not be considered the optimal values for every situation, but rather a recommended starting point for tuning a Connections deployment. Using this configuration as a baseline, we suggest monitoring the system performance, making any desired changes, and measuring their impact.
