(Nasdaq: JIVE) today unveiled its vision for the future of collaboration at JiveWorld16 and previewed the next generation of its interactive intranet and customer communities, which will be released later this year. In front of more than 1,600 attendees, Jive CEO Elisa Steele addressed how Jive is focused on uniting all aspects of a person's business ecosystem – from colleagues across a company to individual teams, to external stakeholders like customers and partners – all in one, seamless collaboration experience.

"The market has come to know Jive for powering innovative solutions that deliver clear value," said Elisa Steele, chief executive officer at Jive Software. "The next evolution of our core products, powered by the Jive WorkHub, provides a unique identity for any individual to participate in what we see as the 'Internet of People'. We can do this by uniting people, information, systems and things inside and outside of organizations in a way never before possible."

Introducing Jive Identity Service: At JiveWorld16, Steele and Ofer Ben-David, Jive's executive vice president of engineering, detailed how interactive intranet and customer communities are blurring the lines of what were once siloed work streams, and shared their vision for the future of work. Jive's Identity Service brings people, teams and communities together in a secure business network that provides greater control over user accounts and simplifies accessibility and collaboration. This improves the overall experience for users, with a single identity that creates a lower barrier to entry and helps people communicate and collaborate more seamlessly across the business ecosystem.
