08.05.14. Cisco-Jive and 5 other Unified Collaboration leaders. Large enterprise customers have become so impatient. They want one thing in one place — right now, in real time - the solution that provides collaboration and social interactions and communications and doesn't require long integration project. That's why, software vendors invented the new term "Unified Collaboration" and now sell their solutions under this sauce. Of course, not any IT giant can build such system. Sometimes they need to unite. In particular, the unified communications leader Cisco recently partnered with social networking provider Jive and announced that now it has the best solution on the market. However, experts note that Cisco has five strong competitors: Microsoft (Yammer + Lync), IBM (IBM Connections + IBM Sametime), Citrix (GoToMeeting + Podio), Siemens (Unify + Ansible), Salesforce (Chatter + DimDim). However, the last two vendors are currently only potential because their UC solutions are not quite ready yet.
2012. Jive acquires Producteev and Meetings.io. How you should welcome new co-workers. If you would like to become the giant of collaboration market right now, you'll need to provide customers the tools for: social intranet, file sharing (ala Dropbox), task/project management, Email and video/web conferencing. Until now, Jive was arguably the best social intranet provider and somehow solved file sharing tasks via the close partnership with Box. However, it's time to move ahead and play catch up with Microsoft and Salesforce, that don't mind buying startups to close the gaps in their collaboration suites. Today Jive has announced about the acquisition of two very good startups - task management app Producteev and online meetings tool Meetings.io. Producteev has become popular due to its convenience and multiple platforms support. And Meetings.io works as a notepad for online meetings (very simple). To welcome the new staff, the guys from Jive created this very cute movie. It's another example of useful video for business.
2012. Open Text and Liferay create Dropbox clones. Could you imagine couple of years ago that such serious enterprise vendors like Open Text and Liferay, that develop such a serious enterprise content management systems (ECM) will copy such a simple consumer service as Dropbox? Nevertheless, it happens. Because even in large corporations (that use ECM) employees are ordinary people. And they also don't want to work for the system, but want the system to help them work. And they also use Dropbox, even if IT administrators prohibit it. There is only one way out - to create the same (simple) service and protect it with firewall. This is the very idea behind the new services: Open Text Tempo and Liferay Sync. They allow to sync files between desktop folder, web account, tablet and smartphone, quickly share files with co-workers, and they work on corporate servers. That's simple.
2010. Gartner: Social CRM - is a huge market. At least since the previous year experts are talking about Social CRM, as of the most promising technology on the large CRM market.

According to the report, 80% of the CRM market growth in 2010 is due to the Social CRM development and the total investments in the social CRM in the next year will reach $1 billion. So what is social CRM? Gartner refers the following technologies to this concept: social Web monitoring, fetching contact information from social media, customer/partner community management, collecting feedback and ideas from customers. According to the report, Social CRM market leaders are Jive SBS and Lithium. Both solutions do not contain traditional CRM functionality, but rather, are designed for integration with traditional CRM. Salesforce, thanks to the release of Chatter, Ideas and acquiring Jigsaw, managed to get only into Visionaries section. Note the absence of startups in the Challengers section - it promises good opportunities for those who will decide to enter this market now.
