- Kirsten Laaspere name tag IDEA get my vote!!! I cannot read those tag even I I tried, use our company logos plus name, industry and color coded as suggested.
- Our community is locked down. So a demo booth there can demo apps and other modules Jive plus 3rd party offers.
- HR Onboarding, how to use Jive to get colleagues integrate faster. we are doing this, like to share our experience.
- I missed an area... let me show you, sharing ipad screen with 3 or more is complex... would been nice if we could connect to a monitor.
oooh! #3, HR Onboarding! We are planning to start this soon and I'd love to collaborate with others on lessons learned and best practices.
I have 3 areas that I continue to explore and would love to find valuable opportunities in these areas at the Spring Conference, my 3rd Jiveworld:
1. I am very interested in integration with Jive. Large platforms like PeopleSoft, SharePoint, and Salesforce to desktop apps like WebEx or Jabber. The commercialization of IT has every business person pushing for the new thing and riding a hype cycle, like Office 365 and Delve. While a clear strategy can help, it doesn't prevent the weekend IT reader from delegating a new product purchase without clearly understanding the potential and capabilities of a current investment. Surely consultant in and around Jive has some tactics for managing up beyond the metrics and analytics. I would appreciate a forum where this challenge is explored.
2. I would love to see Cloud examples that have been pushed to the max on customization capabilities. From the fairly obvious "themeing" techniques to customized app actions to accomplish a business activity.
3. In our industry, Compliance and regulatory requirements are a very high priority. I would like some deep dive access to recommendations and experience in this area.
One thing I have found with this emergent technology is that in a lot of areas, the best practice is still the best guess. I would just like to be able to learn from others' best guesses by being paired with others on a similar path. Many of the suggestions here, bulletin boards and lounge for example, would be good opportunities for us. I also like the idea of badge recognition and table signs during food breaks that could be used as social cues to get a conversation started.
Thanks for reaching out for our ideas!
We, too, struggle with some compliance and regulatory issues. Things like export control. I have yet to talk to anyone else that effectively deals with this issue.
I had an amazing experience at JiveWorld14, here is what I would like to see:
- More hands-on interactive sessions and workshops. Presentations were awesome, however being able to use the product or see how to make changes would be helpful.
- Open Q&A with the workers at Jive in the trenches (such as Technical Account Managers). This could help open the discussion on improving troubleshooting and communications between vendor and customer.
- As Jason Taylor mentioned examples of successful Cloud instances
- Another musical act would be awesome!
Can't wait for JiveWorld16 and thanks for asking for our feedback!
I'd volunteer too.
Echoing everyone else - I would like to see examples of successful cloud implementations, the problems they ran into, and how they addressed them. Simliar to a "lessons learned" for Jive cloud?
EDIT: and real demo / working session of Jive & Office 365 integration.
Great feedback everyone! Keep it coming! We will be compiling all of these comments soon in an organized fashion but for now the stream of consciousness is fantastic!
Here's a few more:
- Show & Tell Roundtable. You could break it out by industry, and give people a chance to see what others in their field are doing.
- Content is King. Sessions for content creators, engagement experts, and news junkies to share successes and best practices.
- More Metrics. As Jeff Maaks said, how are people reporting to executives? What are the best benchmarks, and what does success look like for other organizations?
- More internal focus. The last JiveWorld seemed a bit overweighted by external instance information.
- How about JiveWorld design awards?
Re #4 .. I usually find it the opposite.. too much internal focus
An advanced track would be especially beneficial for us. We're having a hard time getting approval for our technical resources to attend because the content being presented is no longer useful or applicable after attending for the last four years. If we had the ability to schedule table sessions with engineers that we could bounce ideas off of, it would be enormously beneficial for us. (We wouldn't mind sharing some of our ideas for enhancements too.)
Open-source technology has made a world of difference for us (we solved the executive reporting challenge for free), but with the speed of innovation, there have got to be some best practices and recommendations for using and integrating with open-source tools. An OpenJive session anyone??? Think of all the possibilities that could come out of that box.
On the front-of-house side, I'd benefit more from advanced topics around user experience, the use of color and images in content/place design, and the data that powers those decisions.
What about SAP integration to like say C4C. SAP now has SAP JAM, which does integrate with C4C and most companies have SAP! How does Jive plan to compete? If you pretend it's not there or doesn't matter because they are not yet mature, that's is just plain dumb. What are your thoughts? What is your direction? You created nice integration with SalesForce, you really need to do the same with C4C.
Chris, can you share what you did for executive reporting for free?
I'd attend a session (and bring my technical colleague) about the customizations your team has created, Chris :-)
We used Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana (ELK) to create our customized dashboards. These three products are OpenSource (free to download and use, pay for support) and can be found here: ELK Stack Download · Get Started in Minutes | Elastic
We use data from the analytics database and apis to populate a real-time dashboard for executives.
