Jive Engage Platform: Collaboration Inside and Outside of the Enterprise

Michael Sampson - Currents

This morning I spent a few hours trawling around the Jive Software web site , getting an update on current thinking and approaches coming out of Jive. A few notes: Jive's main product used to be called "Social Business Software," but it looks like that name has been dumped in favor of "Jive Engage Platform." The bi-directional integration between Jive and SharePoint looks clean. Do you use Jive's software at work?

Recap of the Enterprise 2.0 Conference for 2010

Michael Sampson - Currents

Jive Wants to Be a Top Player. Jive Software is doing a lot of things right, in my opinion: Leveraging the strength of others to stay in the game. Eg, three key moves announced this week: A strategic alliance with CSC where CSC will sell Jive's software. A placement of Jive's software in the Google Apps Marketplace -- broadening its reach, making it easier for organizations to start. Integration of what's going in to simplify life for people.

Intranets 2015 in Sydney

Michael Sampson - Currents

Many of the sessions were practically focused on how a specific organization was approaching their intranet, from a certain perspective – such as design, engagement, integration, etc. What was less good was that the technology underpinning all that work has been discontinued by the vendor (Cisco Social / Cisco Quad), with no migration path to anything else from that vendor (although the vendor has partnered with Jive).

and portals: integrated multi-channel user interaction environment, unified access to tools, information, etc. Note: I don't disagree with Oracle's portal-centric approach - clearly, you should be able to surface portal elements within a portal. Jive, Telligent, Lotus Connections are more along the lines of a destination site model. Lotus Connections has integration with WebSphere so they are on the track of distributing social elements into other applications and platforms.

Is SharePoint "Worth It" as a Collaboration Tool? - Joe Shepley

Michael Sampson - Currents

To answer this, we need first to compare SharePoint to the other options out there for enterprise collaboration, i.e., best-of-breed, purpose-built social computing platforms, like Jive, Lotus Connections or Socialtext. There's a case that could be made for switching the two parts of Joe's approach - starting with an understanding of what kind of collaboration the organization needs, and then comparing and contrasting the different tools.

What Difference A Year Doesn't Make: Lotus Connections & SharePoint

Collaborative Thinking

In his post, " Lotusphere 2009: What Might Have Been ", Guy articulates how IBM should have outlined a "surround and integrate" strategy for SharePoint. IBM has to do superior and native integration between Connections and Microsoft productivity tools and integrate with SharePoint as well. If Atlassian, Newsgator, Awareness, Telligent and others can integrate with SharePoint the way Microsoft customers would prefer, so can IBM.

Collaborative Thinking: Of bread, butter, cheese, and mousetraps.

Collaborative Thinking

Interesting comment below regarding a little debate between Sam Lawrence of Jive Software and Lawrence Liu of Microsoft regarding the recent SharePoint conference. So a good way to look at it would be "these functions are as if my own internal IT team built them" If you take that approach - then you might be very happy to deploy these extensions and improve what Microsoft delivered out of the box. Jive and IBM are trying to wedge (a la cheese ?)

Collaborative Thinking: Social Software Vendor Roundup

Collaborative Thinking

At the beginning of 2007, our customers came looking with a more tool-centric approach, but interestingly most now come looking for a suite of solutions. That might point more towards a tool approach, but perhaps the tool of the future is not one of the categories above but all of them together with a killer strategy to leverage incumbent enterprise data.

Oracle's View On Enterprise 2.0
