Jive develops enterprise social app for intranets

The Jive Social Intranet Solution is designed to create intranets that have enterprise social networking features

Jive Software has developed a version of its enterprise social collaboration software designed for intranets, the latest product it creates for specific workplace scenarios.

In the case of the Jive Social Intranet Solution, the vendor is targeting companies that want their intranet to have enterprise social networking features, such as activity streams, microblogging, employee profiles, workgroup communities and document sharing and co-editing.

CIO Australia feature: What is gamification?

Jive's product is designed to provide intranets that are dynamic in nature, engage employees, promote collaboration and contain fresh, up-to-date content, the company plans to announce on Wednesday.

It offers IT departments administration and management features to, for example, establish security controls, configure content access policies and meet compliance requirements.

Jive Social Intranet Solution is also integrated with Outlook, Office and SharePoint, so that employees can participate in the intranet from within the interfaces of those Microsoft products. It can also be integrated with other third-party business software and can be accessed from BlackBerry, Apple iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets.

Jive Social Intranet Solution also comes with a new Jive "gamification" module that lets companies create incentives for users to participate in certain activities and tasks.

Jive Gamification, as the module is called, is based on technology from Bunchball and can be used to create workplace "games" to promote, for example, that members from a specific department answer a set of questions or complete training materials.

Jive recently announced the first specialized version of its software. Called Jive Social Customer Service Solution, it is designed to help companies reduce support calls, cut resolution times and drive up customer satisfaction.

The company plans to launch another such specialized product for sales and marketing departments.

The goal of these specialized products is to reduce the amount of in-house customization needed to adapt the Jive software for specific tasks or departments.

The specialized products will be interoperable, so companies that acquire several of them will be able to collaborate and share data across departments.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
