Something we’re often asked… when would you use [IBM Lotus] Quickr and when would you use Connections? My frolleague Louis Richardson, who just so happens to be our Worldwide Sales Executive for Social Software, has provided some thoughts on this question in the Collaboration Soapbox blog.
I’ve covered off this issue with customers in the past, and reading through Louis’ article I’m glad to say I wasn’t far off with my answer. Just as when people have asked questions like “does Domino integrate with XML?” it should be answered with another question – “what do you want to achieve?”. Sure, there is some overlap (the solutions have to stand on their own two feet) but the right solution can only be decided on by looking at the requirements. And isn’t that true of most things?
