Jive Express allows organizations to launch Social Business Software (SBS) with no upfront investment required and nothing to download or install. With Jive Express, businesses can quickly and easily build an employee community to support a variety of departmental team initiatives, while ensuring fast, reliable, and secure access to the organization's most important information and conversations.

  • In June, Jive and SAP AG announced an OEM agreement that will provide Jive customers with unprecedented visibility into the behaviors and content that represents the value of social networks. Rather than relying on a handful of analysts to produce static charts that end up buried in presentations, Jive customers will gain broad access to highly customizable and interactive reports, along with the unique ability to share, discuss, and collaborate around this information.
  • Due to the immense growth of the social business community and the customer demand to come together face-to-face, Jive announced the inaugural JiveWorld09, taking place October 27 - 29, 2009 in San Francisco. This first-ever SBS community conference will discuss the importance of Social Business Software initiatives, and will arm customers with a plan to maximize SBS results through immersive case studies, hands-on demos and training, and direct access to Jive product experts and consultants.
