Qumu Teams with JCS Consulting Group to Develop New Jive Integration
San Bruno / San Diego, CA October 21, 2014 – Qumu (NASDAQ: QUMU), the leading business video platform provider today announced a new integration that brings the power of video to Jive’s enterprise communication and collaboration solutions. Developed with JCS Consulting Group, a leader in social business design, implementation, and integration, the new Qumu offering brings a new robust video tool set to Jive users.
Integration brings advanced video capability to Jive’s enterprise communication and collaboration
Jive’s enterprise communication and collaboration solution enables companies to work better together. Video is a crucial element as more people interact outside of the traditional office, companies are looking for a video solution that can handle large assets, scale to meet their needs, and support employee-generated content – in a wide array of video formats. The new Qumu Jive integration combines Qumu’s industry-leading enterprise video platform with Jive’s enterprise collaboration and communication environment to enable Jive customers to take full advantage of video assets.
The Qumu Jive integration gives employees the power to easily and securely create, edit, publish, search, watch, and share videos. They can watch live webcasts through the Jive portal as well as publish, share, comment and collaborate on valuable video content within the Jive activity feed.
“Video is already an important part of the way that we communicate through social channels,” says Mark Weitzel, senior director of platform & ecosystem, Jive Software, “The Qumu Jive integration will help our Jive customers unlock valuable video assets ultimately making their enterprise communication and collaboration interactions that much more engaging and enriching.”
Qumu leveraged the depth of experience and Jive expertise of JCS Consulting to deliver this high value combination of Qumu and Jive. Qumu-managed video assets can now be searched, collaborated on and shared by employees while working in Jive. This seamless integration provides the best of both worlds; robust video delivery socialized across the enterprise.
“We chose JCS Consulting for their extensive technical knowledge and proven Jive experience,” says Vern Hanzlik, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Qumu. “Using the Qumu REST APIs, JCS Consulting developed a best-in-class integration with Qumu’s video content management delivery platform. Qumu now works with Jive to further extend enterprise communication and collaboration practices and to create a more connected workplace.”
“The Qumu video architecture provides enterprise-class security, scalability and flexibility within and beyond the corporate firewall,” said John Cloyd, President of JCS Consulting. “Seamlessly integrating Qumu with Jive’s industry-leading platform delivers the efficiency of enterprise communication and collaboration combined with the power and reach of video”.
Qumu and JCS Consulting will showcase the new Jive integration at JiveWorld14, the premier conference for modern communication and collaboration, attended by more than 1,600 Jive customers, developers, thought leaders and technology partners across several industries.
