From the Press Release.
“Since it was acquired by Microsoft in 2012, Yammer has emerged as the technology giant’s direction for enterprise social networks and rightfully so. It integrates with SharePoint Online, and is an interactive and social communications tool that is intuitive, mobile-friendly and accessible across all platforms, easy to adopt and governance-ready,” said Rich Wood, director of Perficient’s national Microsoft web and social collaboration practice. “But what most organizations have yet to tap into is Yammer’s ability to extend its features outside the company’s walls to vendors, partners and even customers. Yammer is redefining the traditional external network into what I call extranet 2.0.”
During the SharePoint Conference, Wood will address the need to engage with customers, partners and vendors, and how Yammer can lead the way, during the session “Yammer External Networks: Engaging Customers and Partners.” Specifically, Wood will demonstrate how to set up, configure and govern external networks powered by Yammer. He also will discuss adoption strategies and how to get the most out of the platform’s intuitive user experience.
“Employees need to engage with one another, with partners and with customers anytime, anywhere; the cloud, social and mobile come together to drive this,” continued Wood. “An attractive attribute of Microsoft SharePoint with Yammer integration is that it is a single solution that can power a company’s intranet, extranet and website. The key to its success is having a proper vision and business strategy that aligns with a well thought out technology roadmap. This leads to enhanced collaboration and communications and ultimately will drive improved business performance and growth.”
Rich’s session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 4th at 10:45 a.m. The session hashtag is #SPC248, and he’ll be tweeting throughout the conference from @RichOtheWood.
Swing by booth #308 to chat with the team about how they are assisting customers to successfully deploy enterprise social networks that improve information sharing and connectivity. They’ll also be on hand to discuss SharePoint 2013, SharePoint Online, and SharePoint hybrid portal solutions that promote user adoption, increase operational productivity and drive quantifiable business value. We hope to see you there!
