Holy cow, what a morning! During the keynotes today, we covered upcoming features of Jive Cloud and discussed our all new release of the Cloud in early November! We've revamped quite a few features this year designed to keep Jive users ahead of the Social Software curve. Everything from Portraits being redefined, to new Social Collaboration and Enterprise Social Network building has been incorporated in our updates. Here's a quick breakdown of some of the new upcoming features in Jive Cloud that you won't want to mess:
- Jive's social Directory - A new and simple way to find experts and source talent from inside your company. Employees can now endorse colleagues' skills, ultimately making it easier than ever to find the person with the right expertise for any job you need accomplished. These new expertise identification capabilities can be used by employees to find experts they need. A great example is creating new groups or projects; Jive auto-suggests colleagues that match the needed talents. Additionally, Jive's profiles now offer a 360-degree view of fellow employees, including how they are connected within their organization, their professional experience, their most impactful contributions, trending content and recent activity, plus a gallery view of any uploaded photos!
- Impact Metrics - Executives and information gurus can view how their internal blogs and strategy documents have been received internally and externally, including sentiment analysis, readers, departmental message effectiveness, and who's actions have driven the distribution and improved message reach.
- Portal Platform - Easy to customize, helps individual departments within a company build better dynamics, engaging portals in minutes for improved employee enablement, support for self-help use cases, and team coordination. Pretty amazing stuff!
Social Collaboration and Enterprise Social Network
- Real-time messaging - Now embedded directly within the Jive platform, employees can initiate 1:1 or group real time conversations that carry through seamlessly for offline users, or they can see who else is viewing the same documents they are and start a virtual hallway conversation right in context.
- The Social Task System - Direct Producteev integration within the Jive platform. Users can easily create, assign and schedule tasks within Jive, including notes, blogs, projects, profiles, spaces and groups. Additionally, users can now create tasks in-line in emails and direct them to the Jive community, providing easy tracking for the sender and checklists for recipients, ultimately reducing lost asks and removing the need for nagging follow-ups.
- Google Drive and Gmail - Similar to Box for file storage, users can now access Google Drive directly from Jive. Bi-directionally sync Jive to Drive to comment, mark final or needs actions, make decisions and ask questions related to a document stored right on the Jive platform. Or, work on files in Drive while still connected to all the talent and resources of the company. Not impressed yet? How about gathering relevant profiles and Jive conversations from within Gmail, including the ability to comment, interact and create new Jive discussions from existing emails? Pretty cool!
- Integration capabilities for third-party developers - Jive's new cloud release offers more integration capabilities for third-party developers than any other social platform in the enterprise, including the ability to tie in any content system or document management, build deeply integrated apps, and create interactive activity stream objects that drive added collaboration benefits.
Enterprise Social Network Anywhere, Anytime
- Our all new Universal App seamlessly brings all of the Fall cloud release features to iPad and iPhone devices. Designed for iOS7, people can now create content using a new rich-text editor, take mobile videos and upload them onto their enterprise social network, use new search filters to find content as quickly as possible and view enhanced profile features and make expert recommendations within the social directory directly from their devices.
