Yammer Review

​Increased collaboration between geographically distributed teams, good way to share files and videos on topics of common interest

What is most valuable?

  • Ease of creating groups
  • Simple but good user experience on mobile
  • Ability to adaptively stream videos inline in the wall
  • Ability to track foul words

How has it helped my organization?

  • Increased collaboration between geographically distributed teams.
  • Good way to share files and videos on topics of common interest.

What needs improvement?

Cannot import/invite bulk users from an active directory security group.

For how long have I used the solution?

Two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Not interfaced with the support team.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Used Jive, but switched as Yammer became bundled with Office 365 at no additional cost.

How was the initial setup?

Not involved in admin activities/setup, hence I cannot comment.

What was our ROI?

Cannot comment, as I do not have this info.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Jive and SharePoint.

What other advice do I have?

Create a good governance mechanism and be weary of group/community explosion in the initial fad days. Need to ensure duplicate groups are not created.
