  • Jive allows to upload the documents to sharepoint so that's mean you have to manage the storage accordingly, but i dont thing JIve need extra ordinary storage for just being install.

  • Hi Sumeet ,

    Just a supplement for SharePoint  with Yammer & Jive Comparison.

    Using Yammer with SharePoint is similarly simple. For Enterprise SharePoint Online/Office 365 users, a Yammer Web part, or reusable component, exists that integrates feeds from each, and embeds Yammer access in the SharePoint site menu ribbon. Yammer provides a simple to use, intuitive platform for enterprise  collaboration within the social networking information model. Yammer takes a crowd-sourcing approach to  knowledge management in the enterprise by allowing users to leverage  powerful tagging and content collaboration tools to communicate and  capture information and expertise.

    Jive has matured into a developer-friendly technology that can be integrated with other platforms (including SharePoint) without much difficulty. In addition, the Jive platform includes functionality that Yammer doesn't -- data analytics, most importantly. And with its last year Producteev and acquisitions, it's adding chat and video conferencing functionality that Yammer will have difficulty matching.

    For more information, you can refer to the article:

    Hope that helps!
