Microsoft’s Yammer is not well integrated into SharePoint or other Microsoft applications


” Microsoft’s Yammer is not well integrated into SharePoint or other Microsoft applications, for example. You can get a Yammer feed into SharePoint, but can’t get SharePoint tasks into Yammer without writing code.” 
In an interesting article in www.enterpriseappstoday.com on how to make employees to keep using social enterprise software, Mr. Tom Petrocelli, research director, enterprise social, mobile and cloud applications, for Neuralytix, emphasized the importance of using enterprise social software that integrates easily into common work processes:

” Software designed to be used in applications where people live entails less of a behavior change,” Patel said. And he goes on:

  1. Hello,

    Have you ever used Sharepoint or Yammer?

  2. Why? To validate or debunk the articles you referenced. To provide credibility to your own material. It differentiates the content creators from the aggregators. A good reporter always verifies the facts. As we know so well, just because it is written doesn’t make it true. As an IBMer, your bias already puts your credibility at risk. “Know thy enemy.”

    If you hear me talk about Office 365, my info isn’t based on what others wrote about it, it’s based on what I observed while working there. If I write about Google Apps, it comes from actively running a Google business account. If you read my opinions about IBM SmartCloud, it comes from performing migrations and administering a production environment. Why should you test drive Sharepoint and Yammer? So you can provide valuable insight rather than just propagating the truths and tales of others. http://thenotesguyinseattle.com
