Yammer Review

Not as feature-rich as Jive, but strikingly intuitive ease of use and a much lower cost.

Valuable Features:

Yammer provides a simple to use, intuitive platform for enterprise collaboration within the social networking information model. Like other products in this space, Yammer takes a crowd-sourcing approach to knowledge management in the enterprise by allowing users to leverage powerful tagging and content collaboration tools to communicate and capture information and expertise.

Room for Improvement:

Yammer is not as feature rich as the most mature offering in this space, Jive, however it makes up for this with strikingly intuitive ease of use and a much lower cost.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

While comparing the two products Yammer and Jive, Jive outperforms Yammer with its strong features like data analytics and video conferencing facility.

You need to consider also the entrance barriers. You register in Yammer and you have a network ready to work in seconds.

Looks like Yammer initially was built with a focus on Consumers whereas Jive on contrary was built with focus on Enterprises. Later radically both products are concentrating on Enterprise Social Collaboration and Networking space. Yammer with its freemium type attracts Collaborations to take place immediately unlike Jive though both support SAAS based model as well apart from cloud options. But one thing is not clear why Yammer is available on cloud option only? Can't it support stand-alone or on-premise option?
