Jive Software (JIVE), Millennial Media (MM), Tangoe (TNGO), Qlik (QLIK), and Sourcefire (FIRE) are possible acquisition targets as IT giants continue eying software plays, thinks Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi (ed: Millennial is an ad services firm, and Sourcefire sells both security hardware and software). With PC and enterprise hardware (I, II) demand slumping, hardware vendors have plenty of incentive to grow their software exposure. Sacconaghi estimates software has made up over 60% of acquisitions for IT hardware firms since '02, services 23%, and hardware/other 14%.

    I believe that JIVE is the secure/comparted Facebook of the future.
