Company Announcements

Telligent & Zimbra have Merged

In July, we announced that Telligent acquired Zimbra from VMware and that the two companies planned to merge to form a new software company. We are happy to say that the merger is complete. The combined company is now operating under the Zimbra brand. One of the first of many changes to come is our new logo, which we unveiled at The Big Social user group conference this month. We hope you like it!

Zimbra User Group Conference

The Big Social, our user group conference and first initiative as a combined company, just wrapped up this week in Dallas, Texas. Thank you to our attendees and speakers for making it such a success, and our largest user group conference yet. The conference included sessions from 24 customer and partner presenters, product news and previews from our development team, and keynotes from Forrester analyst Kim Celestre, entrepreneur and bestselling author Paul Spiegelman, and Zimbra CEO Patrick Brandt. We look forward to seeing you again at The Big Social 2014.

Customer and Partner Storytelling

Did you miss this year's conference? The Big Social featured dynamic presentations from more than 20 different organizations, including Comcast, Mary Kay, NEC BIGLOBE, The UPS Store and many more.

One hot topic on the social community front was gamification. Texas Instruments shared how its internal community, InfoLink, is incorporating gamification to encourage employee collaboration. Watch the video to learn more.

Zimbra customer, Lafayette College, and Zimbra partner, eZuce, talked about how they created a campus communications system using Zimbra and eZuce openUC™. Learn more about how the students at Lafayette College are using Zimbra 8.

Zimbra Product Roadmap

If you weren't able to attend The Big Social, we're sorry we missed you. We had a lot of good conversations this year, the product roadmap being a main topic of interest. In the coming weeks, we will have more opportunities for you to learn about the product roadmap. Stay tuned to our blog for webinar dates in October and November.
