Microsoft is dedicated to continual improvement on Yammer. They realize the value that Yammer brings to the table with their clients. In the short time that we have had Yammer implemented, we are just now beginning to see the strong impact it has on becoming more effective and efficient around collaboration.

As I said earlier, Yammer is a glorified Facebook, just for businesses. It creates a sense of community, but I think most organizations can take it or leave it for the most part.

I think it’s important to educate personnel of the negative implications sharing MNPI can have. I can’t tell you how many trading windows had to be closed early because of an excited sales Rep sharing a win. Innocent intentions, however, had a huge negative impact on the organization as a whole.

The fact that Yammer is a multitenant tool, owned by Microsoft, and the way they work to constantly improve the product, makes me assured that it will become an even better ESN-tool in the future. The integration to Office 365 and other Microsoft software will make it fit in nicely with the entire technology platform, since we use many of Microsoft's solutions. Others things that I consider is that I like the Yammer spirit and people, and how they work together. They are passionate about creating the best ESN-experience. And passion is extremely important!

Our new applicant tracking system has sufficient document management and collaboration features such that we don't really have a need to adopt a second system. We will lose out on some functionality, but it was determined that the loss was outweighed by the need to avoid using multiple systems.

Overall happy with our experience of Yammer, although integration with SharePoint is still not great, and document editing is far from being satisfactory. If document editing and versioning is a strong requirement, other tools in the market do it better. Yammer excels in the collaborative part of it, allowing quick comments and sharing of documents, tagging and notification.

The very attractive start-up pricing model (free!) is a real no-brainer if you want to get started on Social. Since you need nothing more than network access and a browser (or use the mobile app) you get get up and running the same day you decide for this. The tight integrations (to come) with Sharepoint and office will be hard to beat.
