Zimbra Acquisition Update, Product & User Group Announcements

 

ZIMBRA + TELLIGENT

Last month we announced that Telligent, a market leader in enterprise social software, acquired Zimbra from VMware. In the official press release, Telligent communicated that, upon closing, Telligent and Zimbra will merge under the Zimbra brand to form a new software company offering a unified social collaboration suite.

ZIMBRA USER CONFERENCE

One of the first joint initiatives between Zimbra and Telligent is their combined user group conference, The Big Social. Taking place September 23-25 at the W Hotel in Dallas, Texas, The Big Social will feature four training workshops, four different learning tracks and keynote presentations from industry leaders.

PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENTS

Zimbra.Next

Zimbra.Next will bring some significant improvements to the product. The transition and integration between Zimbra and Telligent is having very little impact on the release. Zimbra is still planning to ship the release in the first half of 2014 and all the major features that we’ve discussed in our roadmap, such as HTML5 and Always On Architecture, are still being delivered. Read more about Zimbra.Next.

Zimbra’s Commitment to Open Source

Open Source is part of the DNA at Zimbra. It’s how we started our journey together back in 2008 as one of their first partners in the US.  From the early days, Zimbra worked with the broader Open Source and developer community to develop their own JavaScript toolkit as well as to help improve the speed of modern web applications. Now, as Telligent + Zimbra move forward to create a unified suite of social and collaboration tools, Open Source will be at the heart of what they build. Continue reading.
