Welcome to the IBM Connections Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by the IBM Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events, please visit our IBM Connections page.

Develop Integration with other Collaboration Platforms (O365, G-suite)

Connections is social enterprise software, and it does that well.

Connections is enterprise collaboration software, and it does that well.

Connections is not so good at personal/small team collaboration, where O365 and G-suite excel....and have the market share.

Conversely, O365/G-Suite do not function well as social enterprise or enterprise collaboration software.


Therefore, please develop meaningful integration with other collaboration platforms so that instead of Connections competing with O365/G-Suite, they become enhancements of each other.

    AppFusions has a vast suite of end-to-end integration apps (full UX, workflows, SSO) into IBM Connections cloud and on-premise, ready to go. it is a holistic strategy for scalability, portability, security, and ongoing feature development as the 3rd party systems evolve over time. They are built on a proven model over 8 years, and for IBM Connections cloud and v6.X, since 2015. Here's a brief flyer for more info and plenty of Youtube videos!  Here's a flyer

    We support OneDrive for Business, SharePoint online (and server), Google Drive already - including Editing files in O365 or Office tools or Google tools, respectively - and would happily consider building others out.

    The value to you is that they are proven UXs, workflows, SSO, just work, always work, and are reliably supported and enhanced with time! Email info@appfusions.com to discuss more...
