Sam Lawrence has quite a powerful post today about enterprise technology. He’s writing about the way collaboration inside the enterprise used to be file-centric, but with tools like Jive’s Clearspace, collaboration has become people-centric.
I’m a big believer in how Jive sees the enterprise collaboration space. From my perspective, Jive has their passions in common with Mzinga, another favorite collaboration/community platform. There are differences between the two companies (I know – I attended the shoot out at Enterprise 2.0), but in both cases, I see their efforts as being about making people the center of the process.
To that end, read Sam’s article here. I think it explains the space VERY well.
