PALO ALTO and SAN JOSE, Calif., May 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE), a leader in modern communications and collaboration solutions for business, and iTalent, a leading global technology consulting services company, today announced a partnership focused on delivering highly collaborative solutions to higher education online communities – making the student and faculty experience more consistent with the physical campus.
The new partnership delivers an experience for students and institutions to connect, communicate and collaborate in virtual learning environments and supports the requirements for accreditation and standardization. Additionally, the virtual campus environment connects students to the campus community in a way that was once only reserved to students attending the physical campus.
"Our higher education initiative extends our reach across campuses throughout the country for the next-generation campus and learning experience," says Renee La Londe, CEO of iTalent. "Jive provides our students, faculty and even alumni the opportunity to virtually communicate and connect in a more meaningful way."
"From finance to healthcare, Jive provides intuitive and easy-to-use solutions for improved collaboration and we're excited to partner with iTalent to extend our reach further into higher education institutions," says Kevin Williams, vice president of global alliances, Jive Software. "The partnership with iTalent delivers a fully integrated experience for education programs across the country to immediately connect, collaborate and share best practices with their peers, students and partners."
As part of the newly established partnership, Jive and iTalent will work together to create virtual campuses leveraging Jive's industry leading Jive-x external communication solution and iTalent's best-of-breed implementation services for higher education.
Jive and iTalent have recently partnered with Wichita State University to deliver a cloud-based social intranet for its Applied Technology Acceleration Institute (ATAI) community. In addition, iTalent leads the ATAI Center for Social Knowledge, which introduced best practices in the area of enterprise and higher education collaboration, and Jive provides training and curriculum for ATAI students.
