Collaboration Solution: IBM CloudSmart Docs

According to Ed Brill, director of product line management for Collaboration Solutions at IBM, the launching of CloudSmart Docs, IBM’s portfolio in the collaboration space is now complete.  The solution is competitively priced, security-rich, reliable, flexible and extensible.

IBM CloudSmart Docs challenges Google Docs and Microsoft 365 and includes similar applications to those included in its rivals offerings.

IBM CloudSmart Docs provides the tools needed in order to help individuals and communities interact, form relationships, make decisions, accomplish work such as: online collaboration with people inside or outside your company, collaborative creation, editing, sharing of word, spreadsheet and presentation documents, instant messaging, web meetings, mail and calendar.

According to IBM, a social business recognizes that people do business with people and optimizes how people interact to accomplish organizational goals:

  • Deeply connecting individuals in productive, efficient ways

  • Providing line of sight across traditional boundaries and better aligning actions to needs

  • Speeding up business with insight to anticipate and address evolving opportunities

The service is available in 3 versions for standard configurations: Connections, Engage Advanced and Engage Standard.  Users can select the solution that fits your business needs. Stand-alone services such as Meetings, Notes and iNotes can also be purchased.  A great benefit for IBM CloudSmart Docs is that mobile apps for accessing files are available with all of the plans. This feature allows people to be more efficient anytime, anywhere, on any mobile device.

With integrated applications such as Salesforce for Customer Relationship Management or Skype and Ariba for Community & Collaboration, extension of your social business capabilities is guaranteed.

CloudSmart Docs will most likely be biting into Google Docs and Microsoft 365’s market share, it is just a matter of time.
