Three things you could use Yammer for today (but probably don’t!)

Microsoft’s purchase of Yammer  ‘The social network for the enterprise’ in the summer of 2012 raised a lot of eyebrows at the time. Especially as Microsoft was just getting to grips with what enterprise customers really wanted from social features. ... read full post

The Microsoft and Yammer union – one year on

One year and two days ago Microsoft and Yammer tied the knot. Arguably still in an extended honeymoon period, the couple is reporting big things (amongst them: double the user activity, a growth of 55% in registered users – now 8 million – and an increase of more than 200% in paid networks), with plenty more plans afoot as the pair creates the social foundations for what is being called the future of work, and – perhaps even more boldly the next major communications revolution. ... read full post

The roadmap for the social enterprise: deeper connections, connected experiences

At the root of social technologies lies a drive for two things: open conversations and personal connections. And while social platforms have been ubiquitous in our personal lives for some time now, the penny is fast dropping within the enterprise. Business is social, and organisations need to embrace these “connected experiences” – connections between people, and connections between various technologies – in order to get the most from their people and to gain competitive advantage in an ever-changing world. ... read full post

Does Dynamics really drive “unity”? Reflections on key themes from Microsoft’s Convergence 2013.

In New Orleans last week the theme of “unite” was played out in front of 11,500 people at Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013 , the conference’s biggest audience yet. Having had some time to take stock of the key messages after four days of intensive Dynamics-related conversations, here are some of the most important things I took away from the event. ... read full post

Social media dons a shirt and tie – and the intranet follows suit by getting Social

Are the rumours true? Is it time for the humble old intranet to bow out gracefully in the face of a slew of “Facebooks for the enterprise” (aka enterprise social networks, or ESNs)? Shall we accept that Social is Everything, even when it comes to our most structured organisational information, and go all-in, leaving the rubble of a million abandoned intranets in our wake? ... read full post

Much ado about Yammer - a news announcement (and three postscripts)

It’s official:  Microsoft has acquired Yammer . And with this much-awaited news, Microsoft lifts itself several rungs higher on the  social  ladder. Not that Microsoft was ever the wallflower at the party – to extend the social metaphor – but with Yammer as part of its offering, it’s now significantly closer to the drinks table, the drinks are looking punchier than ever, and the conversation looks set to flow more freely. ... read full post
