As summer ends and fall approaches, we are looking forward to the social collaboration event of the season, Jive World 2012 in October. As a Silver sponsor, the Social Edge Consulting team and I are eager to hear the latest developments from Jive, as well as the benefit from the unlimited opportunities to network with clients and leaders in the field. We have a number of success stories to share at Jive World, where I was selected to be a "ringside expert" for a panel discussion on October 11.
When you are as serious about enterprise social business as we are at Social Edge, JiveWorld is the place to learn about the latest trends, successful use cases, and to connect with thousands of customers, partners and Jivers themselves.
If this is if your first time to Jive World, you're in for a treat. This conference is for customers and features customers sharing what they've learned about the Jive platform and implementing it. There's so much goodness packed into 2-3 short days that it can be a bit overwhelming. Here are some tips to help make the most of the conference this year.
With only 63 days left until JiveWorld 2014, all of us at Social Edge are looking forward to reconnecting with colleagues and learning the latest and greatest about JiveX, Cloud and everyone's #workstyle. As a Jive partner, we've noticed there are three ways that businesses embrace Jive and social business: those expanding their original installation of Jive into other areas of their enterprise; those who are replacing previous incarnations of a social collaboration platform; and those who are developing an external community (JiveX). These varying paths to social collaboration through Jive, show just how far the business community has come from five years ago when #social meant Facebook.
As you arrive @jiveworld, you may have noticed that some of our tweets and blogposts featured #makemagichappen. When you visit the Social Edge JiveWorld booth (#G1), you will also see that #makemagichappen is a big part of our design theme, headlined by our magic playing cards featuring Jive community tips. So what's the story here?
During the week of May 20th, Social Edge attended and sponsored the Verint Engage19 Conference in Orlando, Florida. Verint owns the Telligent community software platform. Telligent is a community platform that Social Edge began to partner with in 2017 as a solution for our community customers. Check out Andrew Kratz's recap of the conference here.
Last month, Social Edge was proud to be part of The Community Roundtable's CR Connect conference in Boston. The CR Connect is a three-day learning conference exclusively for online community practitioners - those engaged in the development, implementation, management, and measurement of community initiatives.
