Sets Strategic Roadmap for Social Business

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Jive Software announced the 18 Social Business Imperatives. These Imperatives identify the 18 critical business functions where Social Business has been proven to produce material breakthroughs in revenue, cost savings and innovation.

The 18 Imperatives were identified as part of an ongoing qualitative and quantitative analysis of hundreds of Jive customers. These companies represent some of the largest, most mature, internal and external social business deployments. They span every type of industry, including technology, finance, retail, healthcare and telecommunications.

"Companies are embracing Social Business to produce breakthroughs in revenue, cost savings and innovation," said Tony Zingale, Jive CEO. "We have developed industry-leading intellectual capital that enables companies to use Social Business to create competitive advantage. Today, we're identifying the 18 business areas that can produce the most meaningful business results for our customers."

The 18 Imperatives serve as a strategic roadmap for successful application of Social Business in the enterprise. This announcement is part of a longer-term initiative that Jive is undertaking to discover and share best practices to accelerate the customers' ability to drive social business outcomes.

"A systematic approach is required to adopt social business successfully," said Nikos Drakos, Research Director at Gartner. "Business processes must be integrated into the social business software deployment in order to gain meaningful competitive advantage."

Social Business drives revenue, cost savings and innovation in three principle areas.

  • Social Commerce
  • Community-Based Service
  • Account Management
  • Customer Innovation
  • Social Marketing

Engage Employees: Drive collaboration

Social collaboration helps employees build meaningful relationships, find answers and share ideas in a fun and productive way. Employees are aligned around producing business results, innovation becomes the norm, and productivity increases dramatically.

Jive identified the following Social Business Imperatives for engaging employees:

  • Innovation Acceleration
  • Corporate Communications
  • Expertise Location / Corporate Directory
  • M&A Integration
  • Contact Center Enablement

Engage the Social Web: Social Media Marketing & Monitoring

Social networks provide companies with insights into what is being said about their brands, market and competitors.

Jive identified the following Social Business Imperatives for engaging the social web:
