Hey, I’m John Underwood. I’m a Technical Evangelist here at ThreeWill. I’ve produced this series of short videos to give you a bit of an introduction to the Jive SharePoint Integration product that we’ve worked on with Jive Software. A couple of quick things before we get started. First of all, understand that this is just an overview. It’s not intended to be a full fledged educational course. After you’ve viewed these videos, you should have a good understanding of the basic capabilities of the product.
Second thing to be aware of is that I’m assuming that you already know a fair amount about SharePoint and Jive. If you’re lacking experience with either of those products, let me give you a couple of links that you might find useful.
Community.jivesoftware.com is an excellent resource for getting started with Jive. As the name would imply, it is a community where users, customers, Jive Software professionals and support professionals meet together to learn how to use the product. In addition to discussion forums, you’ll find documentation and even some nice educational and tutorial videos that will show you how to use the product.
The next resources I’d like to point you to, Sharepoint.microsoft.com. This is the home page for Microsoft’s SharePoint product line. You’ll find several useful resources here, including a free downloadable evaluation version of the product.
With that, I encourage you to go forward to the first video of the series and we’ll begin learning about socialization between SharePoint and Jive
