Microsoft Updates Enterprise Social Road Map

By Biztech2.com Staff

It has been a year since Microsoft Corp. announced its acquisition of Yammer, the provider of enterprise social networks. Since the acquisition, Microsoft’s enterprise social momentum has accelerated in all areas, including new users, paid customers, user engagement, innovation, and the ecosystem of partners selling and connecting to the Yammer platform.

Twelve-month growth highlights include the following:

  • Registered users have grown by more than 55 percent to nearly 8 million.
  • Paid networks increased more than 200 percent year over year.
  • Yammer user activity (i.e., messages, groups and files) has approximately doubled year over year.

“The continued boom in Yammer’s growth is validation that enterprise social represents an important trend in the way people want to share, learn and connect at work, similar to how they’re interacting in their personal lives,” said David Sacks, Yammer Co-Founder and Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Office Division.

“During the past year, Yammer has unlocked new opportunities to share the benefits of enterprise social through Microsoft’s global sales organisation and product ties with key communication, collaboration and cloud productivity offerings, such as Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. We see nothing but continued potential in enterprise social as a cornerstone of the future of work.”
