Although it will no longer sell WebEx Social, Cisco will continue to support the product until mid-2017.
This is the second high-profile partnership Cisco has struck in the enterprise collaboration market recently. In March, it announced a deal with Google to bundle WebEx Meetings with Chromebooks and also integrate it with Google Apps.
The partnership with Jive isn't exclusive, so Cisco is free to pursue similar deals with other providers of ESN software.
