One of the more common questions I’ve gotten over the last year or so has been now that WebRTC is available in major browsers, isn’t SIP going to go away? Firstly, it’s important to differentiate between the common usages of SIP: Access Layer (between SIP endpoints like softphones and desk phones) Internal Network (within a service provider’s network) Interconnects / Federation (between service providers) As WebRTC is really aimed at the access layer, let’s rephrase this question to: Is WebRTC going to replace SIP at the access layer? What is SIP? Before trying to answer this surprisingly complex question, let’s define […]
At Jive, we like to keep our heads in the clouds—or Cloud, in our case. Cloud technology has already re-wired the way we live, from social media to file storage to streaming your favorite music and movies. But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming.

“Corporate culture” is a phrase that gets tossed around quite a bit nowadays, and with good reason. Studies, like the one performed by Professor Charles O’Reilly and his team at Stanford, show that companies walk a thin line between creating a strong internal culture and promoting financial growth, since these two goals are often at odds. However, they also found that companies can achieve both goals—provided that they remain adaptable and pay attention to their employees’ unique strengths and ideas. As noted in the article linked above, “[Their] research found the most powerful corporate cultures embrace ‘nonuniform behaviors and adaptability in particular.’”
Kristy needs to check in with a couple clients by early afternoon, and at 2:00 P.M. she has a big conference call in preparation for the big product launch next week. One problem: she’s currently snowed in at home. Her Internet connection is live, so she can send emails.

Her company has Jive. […]
