PALO ALTO, Calif., March 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:JIVE) announced today the launch of the Jive Social Intranet Solution.

Most businesses today rely on traditional intranets as vehicles for company-wide communication and team collaboration. Traditional intranets, however, are mostly stale, static and siloed. They are built on older-generation technologies designed for managing content, rather than engaging people.
"Enterprise intranets with static, outdated information fall short of the needs and expectations of today's sophisticated workforce," said Esteban Kolsky, Principal and Founder of ThinkJar, a leading advisory firm and think tank. "Employees are often frustrated with the rigidity of the technology and the difficulty of getting to the right information and subject-matter experts. With the latest advancements in social business, there is clearly an unprecedented opportunity to transform intranets into internal social networks that are engaging and productive."
The Jive Social Intranet Solution combines innovative social features, advanced gamification technology and deep integration with Microsoft applications to drive broad employee engagement and productivity.
"Today's intranets are based on crumbling portals or stale SharePoint sites -- systems built to maintain content, not engage employees," said John F. Rizzo, Chief Marketing Officer at Jive. "The Jive Social Intranet Solution liberates the data trapped into these old systems, giving it flexibility, context and relevance. We want to offer our customers a more social and rewarding way to engage internally, for increased productivity and collaboration."
Most Complete Solution
The Jive Social Intranet Solution contains rich functionality and best practices that businesses need to build robust and vibrant internal social networks. It intelligently adapts to user needs based on rich social graph analysis, to create personalized and relevant experiences. The solution integrates with other business systems and includes guidance, user training and hands-on techniques for a smooth rollout, swift adoption and rapid, measurable benefits.
The Jive Social Intranet Solution is based on the extensive experience and best practices that Jive has been collecting from its customers for many years. The world's largest and most globally distributed organizations, such as Alcatel-Lucent, Bupa International, and Prudential, rely on Jive to build broad internal collaboration platforms.
"Jive allows Alcatel-Lucent to work viral, to have a freedom of exchange that no other mechanisms will allow," said Ben Verwaayen, CEO Alcatel-Lucent. "It liberates people to act as a virtual team where and when necessary."
