Alfresco Software partnered with Jive Software to combine breed content management and social business software for customers. The two companies are collaborating with Jive consulting partner SolutionSet to create an Alfresco-Jive connector that delivers enterprise-class repository functionality to Jive content while enabling Alfresco content to act as native Jive content. The integration will be based on Alfresco Enterprise 3.4, a content platform that manages and retains the content created in social business systems, using the CMIS open standard.
The Alfresco and Jive integration offers new capabilities that include cross platform publishing, common user database and taxonomy, permissions mapping and synching, and standards-based integration. Headquartered in London, Alfresco Software is an open platform for social content management. Jive is an independent social business software company backed by Sequoia Capital and Kleiner Perkins. Both companies will be at the Gartner Portals, Content & Collaboration Summit today.
