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. From within SharePoint, users can access documents and assets stored in Jive.

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. Jive's new integration with Twitter bolsters its Market Engagement solution.

Belonging to an Open Network

Michael Sampson - Currents

Enterprise social tools, such as Yammer, Jive, or IBM Connections, provide ways of expanding your network within your organization. Approaches for doing so include: – Subscribe to a blog or magazine that isn’t core to your work, and read them often. Writing on Medium, Michael explores the power of an open network as a contributor to career success , and uses it to analyse what made Steve Jobs so successful.

The third step of taking a strategic approach to the use of Office 365 focuses on creating the right organisational context for achieving value. Any attempt by the SharePoint administrator to flag fundamental issues with the approach to moving to Office 365 are dismissed at worst, or put on a risks register at best.

Doing Enterprise Social Media The Wrong Way

Michael Sampson - Currents

Today, one would be hard-pressed to find a business not providing a social networking platform, be it Yammer, Jive, offerings from Microsoft or IBM, or some type of homespun intranet. Approaches to addressing the problem included (a) linking the tools to people's current work, (b) thinking "change management," and (c) understand how people really work today.

IBM, Jive) delivered social platforms that were far superior to what was delivered out-of-the-box by Microsoft. Burton Group research on enterprise social networking in 2008 found that organizations were tired of tool-by-tool approaches when it came to social tools (blogs, wikis, social networking). Although, for instance, I find most of my Jive solutions in shops that have SharePoint. OK - this is all draft - nothing is final - everything below is a work-in-progress.

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).

A "Sop to the Millennials" - Don't Do New Collaboration Tools Just Because Younger Staff Want It

We've all heard this rationale for implementing new collaboration tools-- tools such as instant messaging, mobile e-mail, Facebook-for-the-enterprise type tools like SharePoint or Jive, or Twitter-for-the-enterprise tools like Yammer. Moore calls this approach a "sop to the millennials." There are good and bad reasons for implementing new collaboration tools.

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: 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.

Circling Around To Enterprise 2.0 Again

Collaborative Thinking

Few organizations back in 2003 adopted a formal enterprise-wide, top-down approach. As people begin to work natively with web-based content (blogs and wikis) they also still want (or need) to add word processing, spread sheets and presentation files into Jive, Socialtext and others - it will be interesting to see how these vendors also deal with the "how used" problem within their environments as they also begin to be used as "file dumping grounds".

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

Interesting comment below regarding a little debate between Sam Lawrence of Jive Software and Lawrence Liu of Microsoft regarding the recent SharePoint conference.
