Jive Software CEO Tony Zingale Speaks From D9

Of all the companies participating in the social enterprise space, the one that has the most buzz–Chatter notwithstanding–is Jive Software. Well funded, and now coming off its third acquisition, all the signs suggest that the company is steadily moving toward an IPO. Just don’t ask CEO Tony Zingale about that.

I caught up with Zingale yesterday as the sun was setting over the Pacific Ocean for a short video conversation here at the All Things D conference which concludes later today. In it he talks about the potential of social enterprise software, which basically comes down to translating the Facebook experience to the software you use in the office every day. He also politely dodges my questions about Jive’s IPO plans.
