Friday 7 December 2012 | 09:31 CET | News
IBM has introduced social business software to help enterprise clients collaborate securely in the cloud using a range of mobile devices. The new IBM SmartCloud services include new social networking features and the release of IBM SmartCloud Docs, a cloud-based office productivity suite, which allows users to simultaneously collaborate on word processing, spreadsheet and presentation documents to improve productivity. IBM is introducing SmartCloud Docs and new services in its SmartCloud for Social Business portfolio allowing clients to collaborate both inside the organisation and externally with partners, clients or suppliers. When working on a document in the cloud, the presence awareness and instant messaging capacities allow users to see if a document co-editor is online and available to chat in real time.

The new features join IBM's SmartCloud for Social Business portfolio which includes file sharing, access to communities, online meetings, instant messaging, e-mail and calendar in the cloud. The IBM SmartCloud Docs cloud-based office productivity suite allows users to simultaneously collaborate on word processing, spreadsheet and presentation documents in the cloud to improve productivity. IBM Docs authors can store documents in IBM SmartCloud, co-edit documents in real time easing the management of multiple revisions from multiple authors in team-based documents. The IBM Connections capacities in the cloud allow users to embrace social networking between employees, partners and suppliers to find and share the right insight when needed. New community based blogs, wikis, idea-generation blogs and file viewers will spur creativity and drive innovation across teams.

The e-meeting service allows teams to meet on the fly, using instant messaging chats, screen sharing to share information and presentations, and includes a new chat room feature to communicate with colleagues, partners and clients in real time. The new software to help business partners organise and secure cloud-based IBM e-mail on mobile devices allowing organisations to extend their current business capacities to mobile devices. IBM SmartCloud Docs is available for no additional charge in SmartCloud Engage Advanced service. IBM SmartCloud Docs is also available for purchase as service add on for IBM Connections and SmartCloud Engage Standard for USD 3 per user, per month.
