    From the limited experience I have with both, I prefer SAP Jam, as it’s configurable and has richer functionality. Yammer is fine for discussion but less for content.
    The positioning of SAP Jam in the SAP portfolio looks also more sure and well thought, while the way Microsoft is integrating Sharepoint, Yammer and now LinkedIn triggers some questions.

    If you are O365 shop, Yammer will be your best bet here I feel, using the full suite of productivity tools together really works for us and with Sharepoint templates bespoke designed using our companies design language system it really feels like ours. The tech is not the most important aspect. Getting the culture right to make use of any tools is key. I have struggled to see how to get value out of Slack in a large network environment.

    Hi all,

    We had the same dilemma. In short: If you want to integrate with SAP, Jam is the best option. We currently have two connections to JAM. One for HR and one for CRM. As always integration is the issue and when it comes to SAP, JAM is the better option and is also playing more and more of a dominant role in the SAP Roadmap.

    Hope this helps.
