Overall Satisfaction with IBM Connections

Communication among the teams and projects teams is a big issue. It happens too often that the information (document, email) is not readily available and sharable with the rest of the team. Information in mail inboxes, local hard drive, network shared drive lead to miscommunications and duplications of effort. Connections has help improve these challenges.
  • I use the Activities feature extensively to manage tasks and statues of my projects.
  • I also use Forum feature to gain participation and sharing of information from members of my communities.
  • The Wiki features is also very nice for reference information.
  • I would like to have the capability to create groups of members within my communities. This is so that I can send communication to a group instead of having to select individual members.
  • I would also like to be able to have subcommunities within subcommunities.
  • Having the Wiki feature support more html would also be helpful.
  • Better integration with Microsoft Office suite products would be a plus.
  • Improve communication
  • Improve document repository
  • Project alignment
The tool is valuable to my key work of Program and Project Management
Create an adoption program to train your organization. It is very helpful to have as many people in your organization as possible to use the tool at the same time. This will accelerate the adoption rate and increase usage much quicker.
