Jive Software (JIVE +9.2%) jumps following reports Microsoft (MSFT -0.7%) is in talks to buy Jive rival Yammer, potentially for $1B+. AllThingsD's Arik Hesseldahl suggests Yammer's lack of IPO preparation (unlike Jive) and challenges in getting users to pay make a Microsoft deal logical. ZDNet's Eileen Brown notes Yammer is used by 85% of the Fortune 500, and could bolster Microsoft's efforts to add cloud and social networking features to its Dynamics business apps.
