Independent Analyst Firm Recognizes Jive as the Top Vendor for Second Consecutive Year

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE), the world’s leading provider of modern communications and collaboration solutions for business, today announced that it was ranked as a Leader in The Aragon Research Globe™ for Social Software, 2015: Knowledge at the Core report for the second consecutive year. Aragon Research evaluated 22 global enterprise social networking (ESN) vendors for this year’s report, and recognized Jive for its strong partner ecosystem, extensive suite of mobile apps and intuitive navigation that simplifies information sharing.1

“Year after year, Jive continues to lead the charge in the enterprise collaboration market with solid execution and a strong cadence of new customer wins,” said the report’s co-author Jim Lundy, founder and CEO of Aragon Research, as well as the firm’s lead analyst for collaboration, mobile and social.

“Enterprise Social Software has a new lead story—and it’s called Mobile Collaboration. Mobile apps that feature messaging as the main activity feed have become prominent over the last 12 months and have grabbed the attention of users,” the report states. “Jive recognized the shift to Mobile Collaboration and it is one of the few ESN providers to offer a fully featured Mobile Collaboration suite of apps.”2

Continues the report, “As an enterprise social software pioneer, Jive was one of the first to introduce an app market to enable integration into other systems and extend its own capabilities. Enterprises typically choose the Jive platform for information sharing, internal communications around projects and collaborating around specific business processes, and also for external communications and support with their own customers.”3

Finally, the report includes customer feedback regarding Jive’s social software solutions, noting that “the Jive UI is user friendly and that it enables easier information sharing throughout the enterprise.”4

“Jive is continually empowering millions of people around the world to work better with their colleagues, partners and customers, while pushing the boundaries of innovation,” said David Puglia, chief marketing officer for Jive. “Great companies such as Cisco, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Pearson and Standard Chartered rely on Jive to connect, communicate and collaborate from any device anywhere. We base our success on the success of our customers, and it is a true honor that Aragon Research continues to recognize the value that Jive delivers to our growing community.”

This latest recognition by Aragon Research follows several major industry reports that named Jive one of the top vendors in enterprise collaboration, including research from Gartner, Inc. and Forrester Research.
