Offers integration capabilities that are very easy to use
My company has 20 people who work on the product. I know that my company has around seven customers who use the tool. I recommend the product depending on the use cases of the person who wants to buy it. If your use case is to develop a public site, customer portal, self-service, or intranet, I would say that you should go for the Liferay Digital Experience Platform. If your use cases are related to e-commerce, you need to evaluate your use cases against Liferay Digital Experience Platform, and you can use it if you find it to be a good fit. Otherwise, you should search for other platforms.

A scalable tool beneficial for making overall communication within an organization easy
There is not much to choose from when it comes to the verification part of Yammer, especially if the clear instruction documentation is clear. If the instruction document is unclear it could be an issue. Fortunately, the technical team in our company was very clear on the instructions on how to use the tool. Even if we had an issue, it was only once when it came to the authentication part, but Yammer was very prompt in resolving the issues related to authentication and the mobile app. There wasn't much of an issue for me with Yammer. In Yammer, mobile app onboarding has certain shortcomings and can be improved. I faced some issues with Yammer's mobile app when I shifted from Android to iPhone, and it got a little bit tricky to use it on an iPhone, which took away some of my time. The aforementioned area can be improved. Though the resolution for the issue related to the tool took some time, it got resolved.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The look and feel and the user interface are great."
"I think that it could be interesting to expand the eCommerce capabilities to the B2C sector."
"The integration capabilities of the product are super easy to use."
"The solution is easy to install."
"We chose Liferay because it is open-source and that we can make any number of users apply, register into the system and use the system, as opposed to other solutions where the cost is based on user licenses. This is one of the most attractive features."
"Manageability is very good and probably the most valuable part of a tool of this type. There is a little more of a learning curve than you have with a simple tool, but a business user can learn to manage the system as an administrator very easily."
"It allows us to arrange and develop new ideas, then incorporate them into the portal. We can create a one stop information center, so people can access the information from one window."
"The web/mobile/portal integration was one of the features that we found most valuable, primarily because it reduced our development time."
"Its most valuable features are the storyline and communities."
"I find it quite simple and intuitive. It's similar to using a more user-friendly interface for SharePoint. It integrates seamlessly with the browser, so you hardly notice you're using it."
"It's really easy to use the solution."
"Yammer shows the post’s actions, comments, and how people react. We can quickly see what's going on."
"The most valuable feature of Yammer is its interface."
"The integration with Teams is the biggest value for us. In fact, it has only become more valuable now that it has integration with Teams. Teams allows you to stream, so that's good."
"It was a stable solution...It was a highly scalable solution considering it was used in a very big company."
"The user interface and the way we can share and search information are the most valuable. It is very easy to use."


"It could have better built-in integration with a wider variety of extensions out-of-the-box."
"The integration and configuration need to be simplified."
"It could be improved in terms of adding filters to some of the rules. Therefore, you can retain how long a document would need to stay in an archive."
"The plugins should be more affordable."
"Social area and capabilities need improvement."
"The documentation provided needs to be more detailed. It's sometimes hard to develop things because the documentation is so sparse."
"I faced some issues with Yammer's mobile app when I shifted from Android to iPhone, and it got a little bit tricky to use it on an iPhone, which took away some of my time."
"The permissions are a little bit over-complicated."
"Although Microsoft is working on it, having a centralized network instead of creating multiple networks based on a domain would help businesses with multiple companies or child companies."
"Yammer should include more integrations."
"Yammer has very limited features."
"If you are using other applications that are tough to integrate into the environment, that can cause limitations."
"The interface is clunky and could be improved."
"The product seems to just add to the complexity of using existing tools."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The product is neither cheap nor expensive. What Liferay Digital Experience Platform offers at its current price can be considered something that is worth the money."
"It's an open-source structure. Other costs are for professional services to integrate Liferay to other existing systems."
"It is a bit expensive."
"Licensing costs can be very expensive."
"Their pricing model should be modified to include per user options instead of just servers/cores, etc."
"I think that there is a need to make yearly payments towards the licensing costs of the solution."
"I don't know about the pricing. Now that Microsoft has bought Yammer, it should be a part of our subscriptions for Office 365."
"Its cost is included in the license bundle for Microsoft."
"Compared to other products like Amazon, Yammer's pricing is fine."
"The pricing is not bad."
"We get it as part of our Office 365 subscriptions, so I don't think we pay any additional cost for Yammer. It's included in the Office 365 subscriptions."
"Yammer is a pretty cheap solution, and it's included in multiple subscriptions."

Since #SPC12 almost every SharePoint addicted developer, it-pro, power user has reviewed Yammer. If you don’t know what Yammer is, here a…
