IBM SmartCloud for Social Business meetings

  • Download a new version of the Sametime Connect rich client
  • Navigate the chat and meeting applications, and launch their communication tools more easily with new context sensitive icons and user flows that have been streamlined to minimize the number of clicks
  • Share rich content immediately with file transfer* and screen-capture in web chat
  • Launch a meeting directly from a shared document in Files
  • See at a glance what's happening with the new Meeting Stream that shows the chat discussion, when people share files, join the meeting, interact with poll questions, etc.
  • Use additional meeting tools located next to the Audio Conferencing controls (if purchased as an add-on)
  • Use new Meetings and Audio Conferencing reports available to subscribers
  • Use new mobile applications that allow users to not just attend, but take control, share content, collaborate, and manage their meetings
  • Use Meetings effectively with Chrome
  • Use Federated Identity Management (SAML) support for the Chat plugin embedded in Notes

New "social" capabilities for SmartCloud Docs
  • Presentations supports AirPlay® Mirroring and dual-screen projection. While your audience sees the full-screen slide show, you can see the slide show, speaker notes, timer, and annotation tool on your iPad®.
  • Import and export .xslx and .pptx files
  • In spreadsheets, customize the look of new or existing charts, and edit chart data ranges without going back to the sheet

These new capabilities are available for SmartCloud Engage and SmartCloud Connections subscribers.
