Jive Anywhere looks interesting, ditto JiveOn. UI is way better. Custom streams - well glad they are now here.
Definitely looks great! I am wondering how this will cater to a external community site.
Ditto John Schwiller (gmail) - custom streams is long overdue and needed on the SBS platform (hint - when might we see that? v6.0???)
Regardless, the new updates and features are well aligned with what I see clients asking for and will certainly continue to put Jive out in front in the Enterprise Collaboration space.
Among many of the new features/functinalities of JiveOn, I say the biggest impact is on the down market reach. The ability for a small/medium business or even a single business unit of a large organization to be up and running in a matter of minutes is a massive game changer. This will give strong competition to Yammer, Huddle, and other cloud collaboration Enterprise 2.0 providers.
While this does introduce a bit of product cannibalism, the benefits far outweigh the risks. JiveOn can never become the enterprise intranet nor do I believe it is intended to do so. Those solutions requiring integration and custom architecture demands will always have to go with the full service SBS platform.
All in all...KUDOS to Jive...keep the innovations coming -- looking forward for Jive Edge and enhanced Activity Streams to get updated for the on-prem SBS version.
