What are Labs Projects?
Labs Projects are the latest, innovative social-business and collaboration applications from IBM.
Nothing to install. Easy to get started.
Labs projects are easy to try - simply launch a Labs project from a project page, and start using it.
Projects - from Experimental to Tech Preview
Each Labs project aspires to become a Tech Preview in our product portfolio. To start, a project is Experimental, a first attempt to implement an innovative concept. Then over time, with the right amount of development, feedback and acceptance, a project can evolve and graduate to become an integrated Tech Preview within a product, such as IBM Connections, IBM WebSphere Portal or IBM SmartCloud for Social Business. Any project that does not graduate will retire over time.
Share your experience. Shape the future.
Your experience is important to us - we want your help in shaping the future of IBM social-business and collaboration software. Each Labs project has a community where you can share your thoughts about your experience. For example, you can communicate with the project developers to gain an understanding of what the project offers, and then provide suggestions on how it can be improved. After you launch a project, look for community and forum links to get started.
