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.

However, in general, vendors will have to integrate with SharePoint 2010 at some level (e.g., IBM squandered (my opinion) the time between MOSS 2007 and SP2010 to do the type of broad and deep integration with SharePoint that would have given it a beach head to compete when SP2010 does come out.
