PALO ALTO, Calif., May 1, 2014

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:
JIVE), the world's premier provider of communications and collaboration
solutions, today announced a relationship with Cisco to offer businesses a
better way to work together to drive greater productivity, collaboration,
ideation and customer service. By combining Jive's industry-leading enterprise
collaboration platform with Cisco's real-time technologies like WebEx and
Jabber, the result is a complete communication and collaboration offering
making it possible for companies to deploy in a fully integrated, seamless
experience for their employees, customers and partners.

The Jive and Cisco integration provides a unified solution that enterprises
around the world require today – offering one place for employees to
communicate and collaborate, one place for customer communities to foster and
broaden support, and one place for partners to drive business outcomes.
Enterprises can now easily go between real-time communications, like instant
messages, videoconferences and online meetings, with persistent, social
collaboration, like blogs, discussions, wikis, posts, profiles and online
groups.

Cisco and its partner network will now resell Jive solutions as a fully
integrated component of the Cisco collaboration family. Additionally, Cisco
and Jive will conduct joint product engineering to deliver further innovations
and integration on the solution. Working together Cisco and Jive can work more
closely to provide a complete offering for customers. See Cisco's blog post on
the Cisco and Jive relationship here.

"We still live in a business world where we have a separation of
communications activities and the collaboration activities to accomplish
work," said Jens Meggers, PhD and Vice President of Cisco's Cloud
Collaboration Technology Group. "Now, with Cisco + Jive, you have two
first-class offerings coming together to provide a powerful integrated
experience."

"Cisco is one of the most well-respected companies on the planet, with
hundreds of thousands of companies leveraging their real-time communication
and collaboration offerings," said Tony Zingale, CEO and chairman of Jive
Software. "Together, we can bring Jive's industry-leading collaboration
platform to these customers, and help drive even deeper and more productive
business outcomes across their employees, customers and partners."

The Jive and Cisco integration provides a unified solution that enterprises
around the world require today – offering one place for employees to
communicate and collaborate, one place for customer communities to foster and
broaden support, and one place for partners to drive business outcomes.
Enterprises can now easily go between real-time communications, like instant
messages, videoconferences and online meetings, with persistent, social
collaboration, like blogs, discussions, wikis, posts and online groups.

For example, Thomson Reuters' 60,000 employees are already fully embracing and
leveraging the power of Jive and Cisco. Through the integrated offering,
Thomson Reuters' employees can automatically invite people to join and launch
a WebEx meeting directly from the Jive platform. Similarly they can launch a
group or 1:1 Jabber chat session directly from their Jive workflows when they
want to sync with content experts versus having to log in and out of different
systems.

"Jive has already driven massive productivity within Thomson Reuters by just
making it simple and fast to find the people and the relevant content needed
to get answers and make decisions," said Tim Wike, senior director of
Communication Platforms, Thomson Reuters. "The power of Jive and Cisco
platforms allows our 60,000 employees to bring these experts directly into
conversations – all from the Jive interface with one single click. The result:
we are never more than a click away from collaborating in real time with our
teammates using Cisco technologies. You simply can't get this anywhere else."
