Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Yammer

We are in the very early stages of implementation and have yet to decide to do it. Until recently, data for Yammer was only stored in the USA which was a nogo for us as a European company. For the initial testing/proof of concept we are doing the collaboration and communication features are good but we haven't decided on it yet.
  • Communication on Yammer is great.
  • Being an enterprise social media tool, it is only valuable if you actually want that for your company.
  • There is a learning curve for using Yammer. It is not as straight forward as I expected.
  • I suspect when a lot of people use it, it can become hard to keep up on all of it.
  • At the moment we are only trialing Yammer within a small team. Our findings are that this could be a positive influence but the dangers of negative impact are there.
As always with Microsoft products, the support is good if you have the right person to talk to. So make sure you get to talk to the right person. There are customer supported forums also that can be of great help.
