Despite the progress Microsoft is making with Office 365, its claim to universality won’t stand up until it gains traction with government and public bodies. Microsoft obviously understands this.

While Microsoft the company has given Office 365 for private enterprises a lot of love in the past few months, it hasn’t been neglecting the public sector either. And that makes the thorny issue of regulatory compliance even more critical.

Regulatory compliance is important for the private sector, but it is essential for public agencies. As a result, Microsoft is introducing IRS 1075 compliance to Office 365. The goal here is to prevent anyone from walking away with personal financial information, especially tax related data.

Microsoft Earnings Raised by the Cloud

October 24, 2014 – 12:29 am

In the same week that IBM stumbled on its road to the cloud, Microsoft’s journey skyward gave it a lift.

According to the company’s filing for the first fiscal quarter, revenues rose 128 percent year-over-year. Office 365, on the consumer side, by the way, now boasts an impressive 7 million subscribers to its Home and Personal software.

Jive’s Social Biz Software: You, Me, Community

October 23, 2014 – 11:45 pm

Collaboration software in the enterprise is a “must have.” And many of the big software and service providers have integrated social workplace tools into their products. Microsoft has brought Yammer into Office, Salesforce provides Chatter in its cloud, VMWare has SocialCast and so on…

But Jive remains standing on its own and offers something that the aforementioned don’t — its solution centers around you, the end user, and your community, rather than a business process, document or task.

“Jive is the hub that brings it all together,” said Elissa Steele, the company’s executive vice president of marketing and products. “It breaks down silos, it’s built for collaboration and communications,” she adds.

The Truth About Competitive Analysis

October 23, 2014 – 8:23 pm

The result in both cases? Distraction from what you’re trying to accomplish.

October 23, 2014 – 7:26 pm

The merger between enterprise software providers Mindjet and Spigit a year ago has produced … well, you’ll have to wait a little more for specifics.

The big reveal on what the merger will bring won’t come until the company’s conference next March. 

But it promises to be “transformative,” according to San Francisco-based Mindjet’s new chief marketing officer, Kevin Cochrane, who started last month after stints as CMO at OpenText and product vice president of digital marketing Adobe.

Mindjet is expected to serve up an appetizer of its product suite next week, but the full reveal doesn’t come until the March conference, Cochrane told CMSWire.
