Jive World 11 is in full swing now and WE ARE ROCKING!! The main stage session this morning brought home the power of social business with Maria Pinchevsky of T-Mobile talking about the real measurable impact that Jive has had on their business. One of the most thought provoking presentations was Gabe Zicherman’s presentation on “gamification”. If you happen to be at Jive World, make sure to stop by the Bunchball demo pod and check out how they are brining some game mechanics into the Jive platform. In a word: It’sWickedCool!
New at Jive World this year is an entire track just for apps! The most exciting part of this is that it’s our app partners that are doing most of the presentations! Gliffy, Rypple, Roundpegg, and lots of others will show how their apps, integrated with the Jive platform, are changing the way work gets done in the enterprise.
We also have 24 of our partners showing off their applications. Some of them are live in the market now, e.g. Jira in Jive, Hedloc|PM, and Lingotek. Others are “Coming Soon”, including an immersive communications app several project management apps.
Ryan Rutan from National Instruments also talked about the difference between building plugins and applications. He talked about the forthcoming “Dev Console” app from Jive that is a key enabler of custom IT apps.
