Day one of JiveWorld17 is underway, and what a day it is shaping up to be! Attendees were treated to a sneak peek of a few of the groundbreaking new advances Jive’s collaboration hub will deliver in the coming year.

First up on the mainstage this year was Dacher Keltner, one of the brilliant scientific minds behind the popular Pixar film “Inside Out,” who spoke about how important human connection is and how it relates to trust, safety, performance and survival from an evolutionary perspective. “We are wired to connect and collaborate,” Dacher said.

In her opening keynote, Jive CEO Elisa Steele talked about the ways in which the company is fulfilling its promise to enable enterprise collaboration at any scale, despite an increasingly disconnected landscape of single-purpose apps, siloed messaging tools and myriad stack solutions. “Connecting the disconnected isn’t just a tagline for Jive, it’s our mission,” she said.

Jive is delivering a platform that intelligently and contextually connects people, systems and content. “We’ve been relentless in our focus to deliver on our Next-Generation Cloud Platform and advance the science of collaboration,” Elisa said. “As a result, we’re not just enabling chance encounters in the workplace, but ensuring deterministic outcomes that strengthen go-to-market execution.”
