Microsoft Defends Collaboration Suite Against Cisco Charge

Microsoft responded to Cisco's charges against its enterprise collaboration suite, telling CMSWire that it provides the most "complete, integrated set of social, collaboration, and communication technologies" to allow companies to "transform" the way they work.

Cisco directly called out Microsoft last week on the heels of its partnership announcement with Jive. It told CMSWire that with Jive, Cisco "supports complete communication and collaboration, end-to-end." With Microsoft, Cisco added, "you would need to get bolt-on offerings from other vendors in order to approximate this set of integrated capabilities."

Cisco under CEO John Chambers (left) isn't hiding its intentions with its integration with Jive Software for enterprise collaboration.

It wants to go after Microsoft. And probably IBM, too.

How do we know? They told us.

"Through this partnership, Cisco supports complete communication and collaboration, end-to-end," said Peder Ulander, vice president of collaboration solutions marketing for Cisco. "With Microsoft you would need to get bolt-on offerings from other vendors in order to approximate this set of integrated capabilities. With our offering, you get everything, from the world’s leading web-conferencing solution to the leading social collaboration platform, all from one vendor."

Jive and Cisco Partner to Cut Enterprise Collaboration Software Noise

social business, Can Jive, Cisco Break Through Enterprise Collaboration Software Noise?

Everyone wants one thing in one place — right now, in real time. 

Marketers, customers and enterprise workers all want it. And now Jive and Cisco are partnering to provide it in the form of new enterprise collaboration.

The two companies want to combine the best of two worlds: Jive's enterprise collaboration platform and Cisco's real time technologies like WebEx and Jabber. The goal is to bolster that "one" theme: one place for employees to communicate and collaborate, one place for customer communities to thrive and grow, one place for partners to drive business outcomes. 

"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," Tony Zingale, CEO and chairman of Jive Software, said in a statement. "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."

Thank You, Jive, Let's Get Producteev

ProducteevDomestic task management is hard enough, unless you’re one of those drones who gets a charge from crossing something off of your “honey do” list. 

Put yourself in the office where teamwork and collaboration are defaults and keeping track of things — like who’s doing what, where’d you put that, when are you going to finish your part so that I can do mine, what’s the priority — becomes a nightmare.

Or not, if you have Producteev, a social task management solution, offered by Jive.
