Guide to Yammering


As organizations move to Office 365, they are instantly familiar with many of its workloads that have been standard for the Enterprise for years: Outlook (Email), Skype for Business (Instant Communication – Messaging, Voice, Online Meetings, etc.), SharePoint (Portals) and even OneDrive for Business (my network drive).  However, the role of “social networking” in an enterprise is still a relatively new concept and many organizations are not quite sure how or even why to incorporate it into the life of the business.

This webinar will present guidance on the purpose and use of Yammer, and how this “networking” tool can pull together a disparate workforce to facilitate community and collaboration in the enterprise.  We will cover topics such as:

What Yammer Is and What It Isn’t

Is Yammer the equivalent of “Facebook for the Enterprise”?

Leveraging Yammer in the Enterprise

How can a “social networking” tool like Yammer be used effectively?  We will present practical examples of the ways it fills gaps that the other tools do not.

 Using Yammer Effectively

Integration, communication, and guidance are the keys to having a positive Yammer experience.  How can it be leveraged more seamlessly along with the other tools?  What works in Yammer and what doesn’t? What do your users need to know?
