Social Business Consulting
We guide you through the process of becoming a
successful social business – from the initial idea
to conceptual development and implementation to
sustainable and successful use. Our focus is
always on creating long-term value and benefits
for your organization. Leverage our expertise to
become a more social enterprise.
Strategy & Planning
We can offer the strategic framework to help establish a social business platform or project within
your organization. We start by analyzing your
business in order to identify how social technologies can improve processes and create value,
involving all stakeholders in the creation of a social
business roadmap that shows the way to sustainable success.
Concept & Implementation
When customizing, integrating or developing social
technologies, we closely examine the target users
and existing business processes. This enables us to
identify smarter ways of structuring business use
cases and to define success criteria and performance
metrics. Once requirements have been prioritized,
we specify the technical architecture and create a
detailed conceptual design.
Engagement & Adoption
Whether it’s enlisting key advocates and influencers,
providing training and support or eliminating collaboration barriers, we help you build momentum around
your social business initiative. We also create targeted
messaging and communications, and define usage
policies and guidelines to ensure your network of
users becomes more connected and action-oriented.
Success & Optimization
Achieving sustainable social business success is an
iterative process, one that requires regularly reviewing roles and responsibilities, measuring perceived
and actual business value, and incorporating feedback from users and groups. The findings from these
optimization practices allow us to identify new requirements and implement new solutions to address them.

Social Learning Management
Traditional learning management systems (LMSs)
haven't kept up with the social business paradigm
ushered in by collaboration platforms like Jive. By
focusing mainly on the “management” part, these
tools lack relevance and are normally used only
once or twice a year. What’s more, they include
their own social elements, thus undermining your
investment in Jive.
Our SmarterPath solution embeds social learning
directly in the Jive user experience. Instructors can
leverage content directly from Jive to build their
courses. And participants can progress through
learning paths while working in Jive, using familiar
Jive features to collaborate with peers.
Social Connector for Lotus Notes
Don’t let great ideas and conversations get trapped
in your inbox. Our Lotus Notes Social Connector for
Jive Engage provides the social context and immediacy that email lacks, connecting the right people
with just the right information.
Social Connectors for Sametime
Bring the power of real-time communications to your
Jive environment. Our Sametime Connector for Jive

audio/video conferencing from IBM Sametime, while

i18n Translation Manager
Find the right words for your audience. Simplify
translation and management of UI text in Jive with
our i18n Translation Manager plugin. Edit labels
and interface elements directly in the frontend and
in the right context, add translations for new languages with one click and let community managers easily manage and track translations. Jive
translation the easy way!
Multi-Language Content for Jive
If your Jive community has an international audience, you are likely to run into situations where
content needs to be provided in different languages. Our plugin for multi-language documents
allows you to effectively address this issue. Users
are presented with the right version of a document
based on their language settings, and announcements can be targeted to different audiences based
on language and location.
Allow a global audience to understand and benefit
from your content. Provide your users with a translation service that can translate all texts in Jive into
the desired language within seconds. Simplify the
creation of multilingual documents using automated translations or even display content in the
desired language on the fly.
JiveIstrano Deployment Management
Managing a complex Jive environment within your own
data center can be a daunting task. JiveIstrano is
basically your own “Jive Cloud Tool” for your
on-premise or non-Jive-hosted Jive environment.
JiveIstrano automates Jive deployment, testing and
release management as well as integration into source
code management and continuous integration.
Security played a major role in enterprise software long
before the recent spying scandal. So play it safe and
use our security extension to encrypt all email communications entering and exiting Jive with PGP or S/MIME.
In addition to this, the tool allows you to integrate
two-factor authentication using an additional one-time
token and also en- crypt uploaded documents.
External Groups for Jive
This tool enables you to designate groups as
externally accessible and invite people from
outside of your organization (e.g., customers and
partners) to the group, thus giving external-facing
groups access to on-premise or Jive-hosted Jive
environments. It is a combination of a Jive plugin
that manages user access and a cloud-based or
on-premise service that provides the group’s
