I’ve always passionately argued that the content from these global and regional conferences should be shared openly and widely – not just the decks themselves, but also audio and (preferably) video recordings. JiveWorld17 is a fantastic example of this being delivered.
If you’re primarily focused on IBM-based solutions, you may not be aware that I have a Jive-focused blog over at Jive.news.
This is particularly relevant this week as it is JiveWorld, Jive’s annual worldwide conference in Las Vegas. I’m blogging as much of the news as I can from the conference, including today’s posts on yesterday’s key announcements and Jive’s roadmap for 2017 and 2018. Do subscribe to the blog there if you want to receive my Jive posts in the future.
IBM yesterday published a press release previewing the headline features of the upcoming new on-premises release of Connections, Connections 6. I take a look at some of the headline features, and then pick out one specific enhancement that will make a huge difference for community managers!

One of the key differentiators between the community solutions developed by Jive Software and those from IBM and Microsoft (talking Sharepoint rather than Yammer) is the relative lack of focus on the requirement for document management. That’s not to say that Jive platforms do not allow the sharing and management of documents – far from it – […]

No matter what we do, or how focused or mindful we are, the time just keeps passing doesn’t it? As the great Peter Gabriel once sung: Whatever may come and whatever may go that river’s flowing that river’s flowing (Linking to the ’94 version with Paula Cole – my personal favourite version of an amazing song…) […]
There were few companies in the world that could have tempted me back into permanent employment, and I was really happy to join Jive Software almost 6 months ago.

I love my job. Seriously. I know that’s a cliché, but honestly, I love what I do. Since early 2008 when I started Collaboration Matters (which morphed into Social 365 back in 2012), I’ve been privileged to have the opportunity to consult for some of the most insightful and forward-looking organisations around the globe. 7 straight […]
A really useful new whitepaper from Jive, authored by the always insightful Gia Lyons: Many of today’s intranets are frustrating: Frustrating for employees to use, for content owners to govern, for IT to integrate, maintain and support. It’s time to modernize and mobilize. But, what should a modern, mobile intranet do and look like? It […]
Love this! Fantastic, simple, targeted, on-the-money and amusing advertising. ‘Nuff said.
