There is no question that the enterprise is re-platforming, with more companies than ever moving to the cloud.  Fortunately Jive is right in the heart of this movement, developing new technology to support cloud initiatives and partnering with best-of-breed cloud providers -- namely Okta and Box -- to make the experience as seamless as possible. So in that spirit, we are excited to share two exciting developments with these two companies.

For starters, Okta today made some important enhancements to their platform to make identity management in the enterprise much easier.  This is not only great news for the company and their customers but also for Jive and our customers. Last fall, Jive announced a partnership with Okta to embed their directory into Jive and this latest update takes it a step further.  As Chris Morace, our chief strategy officer noted, by embedding Okta in Jive Cloud deployments, we are helping our customers solve their security and identity management issues while giving them a clean and easy way to access everything they need to get their jobs done.

At the same time, Jive is teaming with Okta and fellow cloud partner Box for a webcast panel on "The New IT - How the World of Work is Changing and What IT Needs to do to Adapt."  Taking place on Tuesday, March 4, and hosted by Jacob Morgan of Chess Media, Jive's Matt Tucker will join Ben Haines of Box and David Baker of Okta to discuss how changes in technology, including innovations in the cloud and mobility, are changing the way work gets done and improving the productivity for all.  This should be a great discussion with insights from the CTO, CIO and CSO point of view.  We hope you can join this free webinar.
