Jive Talking

It's used by the whole organisation for sharing and collaboration across divisions and geographies
  • Allows you to connect with anybody in the organisation
  • Allows you to publish your work and solicit feedback or even direct changes, with some version control
  • Search functionality is very weak
  • The information architecture and taxonomy doesnt allow for easy discoverability of content
  • It's hard to navigate the and find spaces/groups that I already know about
  • The main profile/interface does not allow easy access to key tasks or common tasks.
As a piece of software, it attempts to solve the problems of internal communications within distributed organisations but the specifics on how it does that should be considered before deciding if it's an appropriate fit.
  • Better project collaboration
  • Global sharing of learnings and best practices on common problems
  • Increased visibility of high-performing individuals, regardless of current position within the organisation
I was not involved in the selection process
It's not my decision
  • post straight from twitter or via email
  • the MS Office integration is good
  • navigation
  • inconsistent interface
Yes, but I don't use it
It's cumbersome

Jive collaboration platform is used in tech support case handling discussion, i.e. getting support from your peer across the globe. Jive has enabled us to overcome not only geographical and time zone barriers but also organizational silos. Case handling is more effective, knowledge sharing is effortless, and we're building a verified knowledge base as we go along. With minimal initial training, we have engaged a living community of around 6000 expert and novice users, and got moderators/community managers on board. Great product, easy to use and easy to implement. In an area where engagement is the biggest problem, with Jive, we have overcome that problem.
  • Ease of use: low threshold of "getting started"
  • Ease of administration: transparency and human understandable, consistent admin console
  • Ease of creating attractive content.
  • Sometimes it has proven to be an issue to find out exactly what browsers/versions cause problems.
  • Integration in a wide and complex IT environment is not always the easiest thing.
Tech support case handling is an easy example to offer as something for which Jive is well suited, but engaging customers, for example, supporting a customer event with Jive as channel is also easy.
  • Faster case handling
  • Better customer service
  • Knowledge management, processing the silent knowhow into tangible and reusable information
Compared to MS SharePoint community administration, I'm much more comfortable with Jive administration tools. The Jive user interface is more pleasing and easily adaptable with readymade widgets. The navigation (both top level and within a social group or community) is made easier with standard tabs and standard content types.
It's not me who decides on renewing the contract.

Technical support, also extended to R&D. Product management/ product marketing.

We have typically social group owners and community administrators. In addition, we have one - two full time portal administrator and various people with portaladmin rights supporting the scenario. On IT side, we have support staff who develops custom plug-ins, and takes care of overall integration to other neighbouring systems.
  • Tech support: Case handling discussion
  • R&D: tech support report investigation (identifying bugs)
  • Product management: Interfacing with customers.
  • We have supported a big customer event via Jive. Everything was done via Jive: First registration. Then invitation, timetables, practicalities were shared. After sessions, we posted materials, videos, polls on the site. People attending the event wrote blogs on what they saw. After the event, we had a satisfaction survey.
  • Product managers have interacted directly with customers to gain insight on what to develop in next product release, i.e. feature prioritization.
  • Product marketing - engaging customers
  • Administration (via admin console)
  • Modifying group overview/community overview/portal main page with widgets. Especially impressed with user-configurable widgets such as spaces, i.e. user only sees the spaces he is allowed to see in the widget.
  • Creating wikis as individual documents, instead of the complex wiki-entities in various other systems.
  • I have not found anything particularly cumbersome, except some funny mishaps with certain browsers/versions.
Yes, but I don't use it
It's easy to use and administrate. Same cannot be said of all systems I have used.

Product slowed us down!

  • Jive is great if you want to give your customers a place to interact with you. You can control what is shared to the customers and they can give you feedback in a controlled environment.
  • It wasn't the right fit for us because it didn't have the tools our engineering team needed to share code effectively. We also had a hard time getting adoption up because people were not clear on which groups held which documents. There were lots of duplicate docs. People liked the shared drive because they could just save a file and move on. However, with Jive they had to log in, download, edit, upload. It was time consuming. The Word and Excel connectors sounded good but they made our systems slow and often broke. So people didn't use them.
  • We wanted to save people time (searching for and sharing content). It slowed us down.
My company was purchased before our renewal date came around. But at the time we were considering switching to other tools.

  • Document storage, versioning and collaboration. Intranet and social enterprise.
We were using a mix of Sharepoint, SFDC, and other tools to store files and share code.
SFDC Chatter
  • Implemented in-house
If I did this over, I would hire out the implementation. They know the best practices and could have guided us to make an easier to use setup.
  • Online training
Training went smoothly.
It was difficult to customize the design if you don't know code. We tried to customize the look and feel but needed engineering help to go further.
No
We believe a system like this should be user friendly enough to not need to pay extra. It already cost a lot.
They did an OK job when I needed them. Except for the one day the system went down. Jive pointed the finger at the hosting company, and the hosting company pointed the finger at Jive. No reliable information came to us.
It was harder to use that expected. The admin needs to be code savvy to truly customize the system. And users need to trained on the system and the setup. Trainings and monitoring need to continue to enforce use.
Uptime was OK. But there was one day that the system crashed for a whole day. Our company was unable to operate. And all the plugins to word/excel froze causing those systems to freeze. Jive posted a statement to the media saying all customers were up, but we were not.
The product worked as designed. It just didn't work for our needs.
  • SFDC
  • Sharepoint
we integrated to SFDC and Sharepoint for the last month of use. It was a light integration and confused people more.
  • no
no
Very easy to deal with.
We got a price break because we were negotiating with SFDC Chatter too.

  • This tool did help provide information to clients that they otherwise wouldn’t find
  • At its basic form this is an ok community platform but the cost was too high to keep up with upgrades.
  • The analytics for this product are not nearly as robust as other community platforms that I’ve dealt with
  • It tries to be a knowledge base but the truth is that it basically repackages the standard post functionality as a Knowledge Base tool
  • It functioned as a community tool, but ease of use was so problematic that we switched.
We have already moved to another platform.
There are many other community platforms out there that I think can do much better than the Jive platform at a much cheaper cost.

  • This product was purchased to be a support and resource tool for our clients
It was our first community package
I did not drive the evaluation.
  • Vendor implemented
I wasn't involved.
  • Online training
• I never took any live training for this product. I found on-demand training to be almost non-existent.
This product demanded we purchase a lot of customizations for what other products did out of the box.
No
I didn’t have to use support a lot but when I did they were ok about responding.
It was very cumbersome to generate reports. Often I had to run several reports and then merge them offline to get what I needed. Reporting granularity is also lacking.
  • Our own product
I wasn’t involved in integration but we did integrate it into an instance of our own platform for for Single Sign On and record creation. It worked well. Not the best but we made it work.
  • Not applicable
Our issues were more with the product than the vendor.
I was not involved in the negotiation.
