Neues von Yammer – Erweiterte Roadmap und Infografik

Vor einem Jahr wurde die Akquisition von Yammer durch Microsoft bekanntgegeben. Grund genug auf das vergangene Jahr zurückzuschauen: rund 8 Millionen registrierte User (ein Plus von 55%), die Aktivitäten der Anwender in den Netzwerken hat sich verdoppelt und über 200% Wachtum bei den bezahlten Netzwerken (nachzulesen bei Davis Sacks Microsoft and Yammer: One year in).

Aber es gibt auch einen Ausblick auf die zukünftigen Planungen. Dazu sind verschiedene Beiträge erschienen:

Besonders interessant ist natürlich der Blick auf die geplanten Erweiterungen und die Integration mit SharePoint, dazu gibt es in der

ein paar Infos:

To give you a sense for where we’re headed, here are a few of the projects currently under development over the next 6-8 months:

  • SharePoint Search Integration. We’re enabling SharePoint search to search Yammer conversations and setting the stage for deeper, more powerful apps that combine social and search.
  • Yammer Groups in SharePoint Sites. The Yammer app in the SharePoint store will allow you to manually replace a SharePoint site feed with a Yammer group feed, but we recognize that many customers will want to do this programmatically. We’re working on settings that will make Yammer feeds the default for all SharePoint sites. (See below for a mock-up of a Yammer group feed surfaced as an out-of-the-box component of a SharePoint team site.)
  • Yammer Messaging Enhancements. We’re redesigning the Yammer user experience to make it easier to use as a primary communication tool. We’ll also be improving directed messaging and adding the ability to message multiple groups at once.
  • Email Interoperability. We’re making it easier than ever to use Yammer and email together. You’ll be able to follow an entire thread via email, respond to Yammer messages from email, and participate in conversations across Yammer and email.
  • External Communication. Yammer works great inside an organization, but today you have to create an external network to collaborate with people outside your domain. We’re improving the messaging infrastructure so that you can easily include external parties in Yammer conversations.
  • Mobile Apps. We’ll continue to invest in our iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 8, and Windows 8 apps as primary access points. The mobile apps are already a great way to use Yammer on the go-and we’ll continue to improve the user experience as we add new features to the service.
  • Localization. We’re localizing the Yammer interface into new languages to meet growing demand across the world.

Das sieht gut aus und wird spannend !
