About the IBM Middleware User Community

The IBM Middleware Community (IMWUC) is an IBM-sponsored collaborative space for IBM Middleware software users. This community combines three former sites - the Tivoli User Community, Global Rational User Community and Global Websphere Community - into one big happy community starting December 2015. 

The consolidation of these communities makes sharing your know-how and best practices on IBM products and IT interests simpler. You can access the knowledge of thousands of peers across all Middleware solutions with one login. 

What We Do

The community is only as strong as its 93,000 users! We rely on our members, as well as IBM employees and staff to create, share and promote meaningful content. Having trouble switching versions? There's a forum for that. Just create an incredible whitepaper? Share it with the community in our resources library and watch the downloads climb! 

Looking for a more intimate gathering? We host 250+ user groups to share best practices, tips, and support through blogs, discussion forums, etc. Each group is lead by one or more of our fearless User Group Leaders who volunteer their time to bring the community together through online and offline events and great content.
