Jive is the largest and fastest growing independent vendor in the Social Business Software market. Jive allows companies to engage employees, customers, and the social web. Just as social technologies have changed our personal lives, Social Business is changing how enterprises get work done.

The company was founded in 2001, with its headquarters in Palo Alto, CA and offices in Portland, OR; Boulder, CO; Brentford, United Kingdom; and Frankfurt, Germany.

Jive combines the power of community software, collaboration software, social networking software, and social media monitoring offerings into an integrated platform.

The flagship product is Jive Engage. Previous products by Jive include Clearspace, Jive Forums, and the now open source Openfire & Spark.

The company is focused on solutions to increase team and work productivity. Jive makes it easy for groups to brainstorm, share ideas and see what everyone is working on. The product includes team member blogs, wiki-docs for group editing and discussion tools. Recent versions include video, analytics, and social media monitoring.

Jive also helps companies like Intel create highly-interactive online communities. Intel created Open Port so their product and technology experts could communicate directly with the greater IT community. Other Jive customers include VMware, National Instruments, NetApp, SAP, Embarq, ManTech, Linden Lab and many others.

Jive is backed by Sequoia Capital and KPCB.
