Jive Social Business Software Release 3.0
We have seen the Collaboration / Social Media software product marketplace evolve substantially over the past two years. With the announcement of Jive's Social Business Software (SBS) 3.0 release, that evolution has taken a major step forward. The new SBS platform provides a solution targeted for specific needs within the large enterprise, while maintaining the feature flexibility that has made Jive so successful to date.
At Knowlysis, we are excited about the new possibilities this will bring to our customers through our partnership with Jive. It feels to us like this market space has moved from its start as being perceived by many organizations as a curiousity or 'nice to have' to a high value enterprise solution to information sharing and gathering. Social software for the business has come of age!
