IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5 combined with IBM enterprise content management capability addresses a broad spectrum of collaboration, document sharing, and content management needs.
Users can leverage the intuitive user interface of Lotus Quickr to work on projects together and then easily move the final product of their collaboration to the organization's Enterprise Content Management (ECM) repository. Users can use the IBM Lotus Quickr Web interface or the Quickr connectors for a consolidated view of content in Quickr places and content in their ECM repository. This integration combines the flexibility and ease of use of IBM Lotus Quickr with the structure, discipline, and business-process capabilities of IBM ECM offerings.
IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5 integrated with Lotus Connections combines social networking for business with the structure of Quickr places for sharing content and ideas. In addition, the results of a collaboration that begins with a Connections Activity can be published to a more formal Quickr place and combined with other work efforts.
