Pros: Connections has more functionality than I care to use but it can come in handy for the more technical minded. Great features to create employee profiles and message boards wok great.

Cons: Personally I have had a hard time understanding the complicated interface and all the features. This solution might very well be overkill for the vast majority of organizations

A good collaboration platform for the entire company.

Pros: Customizable and loaded with features. Great source of archival and structured information storage.

Cons: Too many confusing methodologies to communicate. Needs lots of training to onboard everyone. Can be more intuitively productized.

Pros: Easy to use, a lot of functionality you cannot miss in a modern environment , solid architecture .

Overall: I'm an IBM Business partner and IBM Connections is one of the best social collaboration tools IBM has ever made.
As user IBM Connections fits perfectly what i could expect from a social: easy to use , clear and logic UI, features needed like file share and edit. One of my favorite Connections apps is Wiki where you can store all info regarding projects. Last but not least IBM has also made the connections client for Windows and Mac so users can use Connections as repository insted traditional filesystem share.
As admin i love connections because is Solid and when you have it tourned on after a setup or migration you can forget it until next CR to install new functionality and fixes.
Connections is also available for many platform like Windows, Linux or AIX and it's also available for principal DBs like DB2, Oracle or MSsql so any customers can choose his preferred way.

I like also to reccomend a good adoption plan to engage and teach the users in right way so you will have the ROI of the investment for sure.

Recommendations to other buyers: I suggest to plan and invest in adoption to engage users in right wayy
