Social media has dramatically changed the way we share and connect with friends and family, and it will have an even more profound impact on the way companies operate. Yammer and Microsoft provide a secure, private social network for your company. Yammer empowers employees to be more productive and successful by enabling them to collaborate easily, make smarter decisions faster, and self-organize into teams to take on any business challenge. It is a way of working that naturally drives business alignment and agility, reduces cycle times, engages employees and improves relationships with customers and partners.
Yammer is bringing the social networking revolution to the enterprise, including changing how enterprise software is discovered and chosen. Enterprise software companies traditionally subscribe to 'buy before you try,' methodology, where enterprises purchase, install, train and roll-out software after only seeing a 'demo.' Yammer distributes like consumer applications, with users discovering and trying Yammer before their employer has to commit a dime. We believe most if not all enterprise software will be distributed this way in the future as well.
This viral distribution model is a reason why Yammer leads the space, but the product also has many groundbreaking features. In addition to microblogging, we've also added Communities (to connect with partners in other networks), Direct Messages, Groups, and access via the web, desktop app, Sharepoint, iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile devices. But we're just getting started. We're building an Application Platform to allow third-party developers to build business applications. We're revamping our knowledge base and search functionality to improve the way people in big companies find and access information. And we're working on lots of other cool projects, but they're Top Secret so you have to come in to learn about them.
