This week I was part of the Yammer Working Social Tour at Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam, A beautifull location! I started my day with the Power User Certification Course, because I wanted to know more about Yammer and get certified, more on that topic later.

Enterprise Social is becoming more and more important for organizations to be able to respond fast on its customer needs. The term responsive organization is commonly used if we talk about Enterprise Social. Yammer supports organizations to learn and respond rapidly through open communication, experimentation and working as a network.

Adam Pisoni gave a great keynote presentation and talked about some interesting cases of their customers. I will share an interesting quote during the keynote:

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing

Walt Disney

These quotes inspire and motivate me. It’s not an eye-opener, but it remembers you, you need to do something to get results.

Microsoft will probably give us more details about the feature of Yammer during The SharePoint Conference this March in Las Vegas, but some things that were announced will be released shortly:

  • Single Sign On with Office 365
  • Integration with OneDrive for Business
  • Integration of Office Web Apps
  • A New App called Yammer Now (already available on iOS)

During the event I met quite a lot of people that I already knew but I also met new ones, which is always interesting. I can highly recommend this event if you are interested in Enterprise Social.
