Non lo sapevo, Yammer é stata comprata da Microsoft per 1,2 mld di dollari.
Per chi non conoscesse Yammer, si tratta di una simil-facebook aziendale. Un pezzo in piú che ora Microsoft puó aggiungere al suo communicator aziendale Lync, Skype e Outlook.
Yammer is pleased to announce that we have signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Microsoft. Microsoft will continue to invest in Yammer’s stand-alone service, and the team will remain under the direction of David Sacks within the Microsoft Office Division. As a Yammer customer, you will continue to get a secure, private social network—delivered with the same focus on simplicity, innovation, and cross-platform experiences. Over time, you’ll see more and more connections to SharePoint, Office365, Dynamics and Skype. With Microsoft’s backing, our aim is to massively accelerate our vision to change the way work gets done through software that is built for the enterprise and loved by users.

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. Giving your organization the advantage of a social foundation is critical for success in today’s fast-paced environment.
Yammer is 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 new way of working that naturally drives business alignment and agility, reduces cycle times, engages employees and improves relationships with customers and partners.
