What do you think of Yammer?

Primary Use Case Primary use is for workgroups. We already have some in place. Yammer is quite good. • Improvements to My Organization Users can access their own workgroups and it improves the communication among people, particularly people who have the same task to perform in different locations, in different countries. • Valuable Features The integration with Microsoft Office and the fact that it is in the cloud.

What is most valuable?

Knowledge sharing between co-workers is a valuable feature. It helps develop a knowledge-sharing culture. It encourages working together and smooths out work relationships.

How has it helped my organization?

In my previous organization, we used Yammer to share what we were working on, be it big or small projects. This brought about innovative ideas from co-workers. This often completely changed the way we work on a project.

What needs improvement?

The integration with other Office 365 products can be improved to create a smooth interaction with Outlook. The users and their email addresses should be the same across all platforms, as they are owned by one company.
