  1. 1. IBM Connections vs. O365 Jan Valdman Whitesoft Watch online https://youtu.be/M8CdfKCMvzE
  2. 2. Remarks The opinions in this deck are my own and do not necessarily reflect or equal to any opinions of Whitesoft or IBM. All information about O365 and Sharepoint is based on my own end-user experience. All conclusions are based on my personal experience using common, regular environments and accounts, both product are considered to be in the “out-of-box” configuration. I am not an expert on O365. Cloud offerings change very quickly so the information might be outdated when you read it. Screenshots taken on April 16, 2015. This deck does not compare the products completely but only from a social collaboration perspective. The information is provided “as-is”. I can not guarantee that the information in this deck is precise, complete, correct and otherwise valid. I believe that you find this comparison true and useful however I can not accept responsibility for any of your future decisions. If you do not like this policy, do not read further.

  76. 76. Microsoft’s approach is completely different
  77. 77. O365 is not social • O365 is still focused on DMS/ECM functions (OneDrive, Newsfeed, People, Sites) • Weird tagging • No liking • Hard to stay updated (newsfeed issues), Yammer or not
  78. 78. O365 won’t improve sharing & collaboration • O365 is very complex • Not built for social, Yammer does not help much, adds more complexity instead • O365 is difficult to use, weird UI, navigation issues • There are some powerful features, but require setup by well-trained IT guys
  79. 79. Summary: different worlds • The paradigm in O365 is different • IT administrators who setup it • Content producers who know how to use Sites • Content consumers who hopefully can find information • In IBM Connections all users are equal • Only community owners are somehow more powerull • O365 is catching up on Connections
  80. 80. O365: Just a bigger graveyard for documents?
  81. 81. Want to use SP for document management? Use stapler instead! (an expert advice)
