The social business software maker has reportedly tapped tech-focused investment firm Qatalyst Partners to look for a buyer, according to a report by Re/Code on Tuesday.
The report noted that Jive approached Oracle, SAP and Workday for a merger -- but none of them were interested.
Aside from the companies noted by Re/Code as potential buyers, Cisco has been rumored to be interested, ZDNet has learned. It's unclear where Jive would fit inside of Cisco, but would apparently be a tag-team with WebEx on collaboration.
Warning signs for Jive have been emitting for some time now.
