Got Portal, Get Connections - no, really, GET Connections NOW

We knew this was coming from around the Lotusphere 2012 timeframe, but it's taken a few weeks to make it into the official news e.g. an IBM Announcement Letter ( ULET )

IBM WebSphere Portal Server V7.0.0, IBM WebSphere Portal Enable V7.0.0, and IBM WebSphere Portal Extend V7.0.0 add entitlement to IBM Connections Files and IBM Connections Profiles

If you have IBM® WebSphere® Portal Server, IBM WebSphere Portal Enable, or IBM WebSphere Portal Extend on an active Passport Advantage® Software Subscription and Support contract, you are now entitled to use IBM Connections Files and IBM Connections Profiles. This entitlement lets users find experts and easily share content with other people.

With this new entitlement, you can access IBM Connections Profiles and IBM Connections Files capabilities directly or from within WebSphere Portal Server, WebSphere Portal Enable, or WebSphere Portal Extend. You can now more easily share your organization's collective knowledge.

IBM Connections Files allows users to easily share content with other people. It also allows you to make the content you create available so other people can easily find it, make recommendations, and share it.

IBM Connections Profiles helps users find the people they need by searching across the organization's content using tags to identify expertise, current projects, and responsibilities. It shares skills, interests, and organizational structure for others to discover and use to their benefit.

IBM WebSphere Portal web experience software offerings help organizations create highly customized, engaging, personalized web experiences. Each offers capabilities essential for delivering and sustaining exceptional online experiences, and now include use of social services that help you quickly locate the people and content you need.
