Admit it. You can’t find a thing on your company intranet. The search sucks. The navigation sucks. Anything you can find, you don’t trust. It is all out of date, incomplete, wrong, or worst of all — you’re not sure. The only way to communicate is by email. When you have a question, you ask somebody.

IBM Watson Content Hub

In mid-November of last year IBM released a new Software as a Service (SaaS) content management offering known as IBM Watson Content Hub. Base22 participates in a design partner program with IBM, and as a part of that, we have had the opportunity to review plans and provide feedback to the product team on various aspects of this offering since prior to the initial release. As a result, we have been closely tracking the evolution of the product and we believe that if you haven’t had an opportunity to check out this solution yet, it is definitely worth a look now.
