Hey JiveWorks!


My name is Marc Harrell, I'm a former customer coming to Jive from our implementation at Office of the Director of National Intelligence and currently run our Federal program at Jive. I'll be leading the Federal Summit at JiveWorld17 along with Gili Guri-Mill. This will be a special pre-conference track held on Monday, May 1st and consisting of five federally-focused sessions.

Last year, we hosted a happy hour at JiveWorld for Federal customers where we had an open, informal discussion. However, we realized it wasn't enough and this year we are excited to present our first Federal Summit! We want to make sure you get all the information you need regarding the Jive FedRAMP solution, currently in development and displaying "In Process" on the fedramp.gov website. You will also hear from our current customers as we discuss use cases, best practices and success stories. We will show you how you can leverage Jive for deeper collaboration, higher engagement and better communication even in a more regulated market.


Jive for FedRAMP is a certified product hosted in the AWS FedRAMP certified GovCloud environment. We want to ensure we address any and all questions you may have about our new secure and FedRAMP certified offering. We are confident in our FedRAMP certified product and we want to show you why.


Who should attend? While this track is called the "Federal Summit," we also invite other industries that expect the same amount of security as federal. Whether you are a customer, federal contractor or a prospect, you will find these sessions helpful.


Several key themes of the overall track will be:

  • Information about Jive's 2017 FedRAMP Certification process
  • Learning about Jive's advanced security compliance solutions for regulated industries
  • Sharing initiatives and strategies for internal and external communities in the government
  • Hearing industry best practices as it relates to Jive w/in the U.S. Federal Government and government contracting space


We hosted a FedRAMP webcast on February 27th, which provides a great introduction to the sessions we will be hosting at JiveWorld17 and we encourage all of our webinar attendees to join us in person! We will give our federal customers, contractors and prospects the peace of mind that their data is secure in an environment that is typically prone to cyber attacks.


As for the style of the Federal Summit, we were intentional in bringing together sessions to complement each other with presentations and panels from federal customers in addition to a session that will be hosted by Jive so that we can share our security solution. We are bringing innovation to the ever changing political system and using Jive to protect corporate memory and increase communication in the government as thousands of political appointees are taking up positions in the Trump administration.
