As the leading social network platform for enterprises, IBM Connections helps businesses share ideas and work together more effectively using the power of a social network. The rich visibility and interaction through Community, Project and Files components keeps everyone on the same page. But when users want to share files externally, the workflow can be more challenging.
When ideas become files, when a vision becomes a dot JPG, dot DOC, dot PDF reality, Hightail for IBM Connections ensures social power isn’t begrudgingly replaced by more mundane services like email, FTP or shared servers. By bringing the power of Hightail to Connections, users can share files created there to external partners without leaving Connections. They can also use Hightail’s sharing controls to ensure that content remains secure, even when going beyond the company’s firewalls.
