"As a pioneer in this space, Jive has led the charge to develop solutions that fuel knowledge sharing and productivity across the enterprise. Its unique approach blends content, information and knowledge across a variety of systems to help companies fully exploit the power of business collaboration," said the report's author Jim Lundy, founder and CEO of Aragon Research, as well as the firm's lead analyst for collaboration, mobile and social.
"The need to make work simpler and the need to harness knowledge from multiple sources is what enterprises are looking for," the report states. "Jive is meeting the trend toward smarter communities head-on with its recent release of the Jive WorkHub for both internal and external communities."2
Continues the report, "Jive's new Intelligent Profiles can streamline and speed up how knowledge is shared within the enterprise, just as personal analytics can inform users more about their reach and impact on the network, as well as what is happening with their team. With these capabilities, plus the solid integration with Microsoft Office and strong search, Jive is fulfilling the promise of an integrated work and knowledge hub."3
"With the many demands and complexities of today's connected digital workplace, understanding people's collective insights and abilities has become so much more critical than just simply sharing documents or chatting with team members," said David Puglia, chief marketing officer for Jive. "Our collaboration hub and rich network graph analytics uncover latent business value for organizations and their extended networks around the world, which is a key reason Jive consistently receives recognition from esteemed analyst firms like Aragon on our vision and execution."
