I reviewed Yammer as a judge for the 2012 SIIA CODIE Awards. Yammer was an outstanding performer in the collaborative platform category. I was given a full video demonstration of the software, and was very impressed with the following pros: *Dashboard design with full multiple application capability. * The number of outside applications that can be embedded into or integrated with Yammer. *The speed of the Yammer platform, which delivered information via multiple channels and sources *The fact that there is a mobile iOS application for Yammer. * A free version of Yammer is available to individual users who sign up *
Room for Improvement:
The only con was that it did not share the same transition speed between apps as SAP StreamWork, another platform that I reviewed in the CODIE Awards collaborative category
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
