2014 - Jive integrates with Office 365 to challenge Liferay Portal


Enterprise social collaboration provider Jive has built software connectors for Microsoft Office 365, including Outlook Online, Office Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. What this means for Jive users is that it will be nearly effortless to create and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets and presentations, as well as email, whether they are working with Office on premise, in the cloud or somewhere in between. And because enterprises are unlikely to move everything to Office 365 at exactly the same time, Jive can tie enterprises and systems together. It works across silos and serves as a communications hub that gives employees the tools they need to work across technologies more effectively, efficiently and across devices. These include Box, Salesforce and Cisco, among others.
