I have reached out and am looking to invite various app creators located in the bay area to compe buy and speak about thier offering. Would that interest you?
Did you check with SolutionSet to see if they are doing Apps?
I sent Dave @ SS an email and asked him if there is any interest.
My concern is that the BA JUG become a place where venders come to sell or build a sales list... Not sure if others share my concern with that.Any ideas on mitigating that from happening?
I am not in favor of making that a regular part of the meeting, but especially now with the launch of Jive 5 I think there is a lot of interest in apps and seeing how they could be used. So for Sept especially I would be interested.
Kevin, I was speaking specifically to Scott's call out to SS. I do agree with 5.0 and that's why I think NetApps was also a great idea
It would be nice to hear about some of the apps just to have an idea what thing might be coming down the line. But I agree I dont want to be sold a bunch of apps.
I will be more then happy to talk about Jive 5 update as we are in the mists of it right now.
John - I would love to hear about your Jive 5 upgrade! Are you upgrade both internal and external communities?
Yes I will upgrading both internal and external community sites. We have already started on the work and looking forward to go live. Love to talk more we can set up some time I can host a webex and review.
Okay, maybe I don't know what Solution Set is then. I assumed they were an app provider. But they are a system integrator, I am guessing?
Yes, that's correct. SS does Jive implementations and integrations. SAP is using them for the migration project. I agree that we don't want to invite SIs, consultants, and other 3rd parties for the reason Noreen indentified, but they do play a role and can often provide interesting solutions. They also bring breadth and depth of platform knowledge and experient of numerous customer implementations. I'd hate to just shut them out. Perhaps they could be invited on a case-by-case basis. The BA JUG meetings would be Jive customer managed and run, and 3rd parties may be invited from time to time.
We are also dealing with inertia and trying to gain traction and grow this group. This cannot remain the band of usual suspects in the Bay Area. Perhaps this would be a great discussion topic while in Vegas. Brainstorm on ways in which to grow this group and drive interest.
I think that's a fantastic idea.
Which one Solution Set or showcasing local app creators? I sent an email to candice to see if she can assist with contacts?
How about High Tea at the Four Seasons serverd on the Veranda 3-4 everyday? Seems like we would be able to talk.. and even possibly get our own sections:
looks like they have a couple of private rooms one for 12 and one for 26 I could look into what it would take to reserve one.
I just voted on this and then realized it is about 7 months old!
I just closed it
