Editor's Notes

  • The IBM Connections Catalog
    The new IBM Connections Catalog will be available for IBM Connections Cloud customers starting in October 2017 to help them discover and easily integrate 3rd party applications from our ISV solution providers.  ISVs can submit their Connections Cloud integrations to IBM for review and validation to help accelerate buyer journeys and customer adoption.  This is a vital step for IBM Connections "Pink" to grow into a more integrated work and engagement platform by more readily including our innovative business partnerships.
