Yamming it up: Collaboration Beyond SharePoint

A session at SharePoint Saturday DC - June 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

10:30am to 11:45am (EST)

We’ve heard a lot about ‘Facebook for the Enterprise’ systems, but what benefits do they really deliver to organizations? Many companies are still skeptical of the value of ‘social’ and how it can benefit their bottom line. Microsoft paid over $1bn to acquire Yammer so we’ll explore how that platform integrates together with SharePoint and the vision going forward. In this session, Naomi will share how her organization’s internal collaboration model has moved to Yammer and SharePoint adoption and discuss pros/cons of adopting social/collaboration systems into organizations while still maintaining the integrity of SharePoint as a central repository. We’ll also delve into considerations as to how to compare out of the box SharePoint 2013’s new social features to social collaboration platforms.
