A powerful tool for managing subscriptions within the organization
It's undoubtedly more complex compared to the initial part. It depends on the requirements. You can't categorically say that HubSpot is only suitable for smaller devices; it's adaptable to various needs. Depending on the requirements, you can have a project completed within as little as six months or as long as a few years. It's a flexible solution that can cater to your specific needs. However, it's essential to start from the beginning, designing the screens and pages within HubSpot. It's somewhat similar to building a website but generally more straightforward to use. You need to input the necessary information based on your specific requirements, and it's not limited to a predefined structure. The team initiates the process with what we term as solution design, but it's more appropriately labeled as enterprise design. This initial phase involves understanding the integration points with other systems and commencing the configuration process. It's essentially the starting point for our analysis. The analysis covers several aspects, including the language requirements, integration tools for interfacing with Java server solutions, and how to effectively use these tools. All these components must seamlessly complement each other. Once the team has everything in place and confirms the tools, they can proceed to elaborate on the specific requirements. The deployment timeline typically ranges from four to six months, specifically for straightforward or standard requirements. However, in the case of a large enterprise organization with numerous legal entities across different countries, each requiring unique interfaces for various purposes, the implementation duration is highly dependent on the specific requirements. It's not feasible to provide a fixed period for such a solution.

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:


"One notable feature is the "improvement training," which allows you to define groups, facilitate information sharing, enable participant rating, and establish rankings. This enables you to identify which participants are actively engaged and sharing information and which ones are less active."
"The posting features are valuable."
"Groups is the most valuable feature in Yammer."
"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."
"The product's initial setup phase was straightforward."
"The design of the solution is its most valuable feature."
"Valuable features include the integration with Microsoft Office and the fact that it is in the cloud. Also, it's quite easy to use."
"The most valuable feature of Yammer is its interface."
"The most valuable feature of Yammer is its integration with all the services of Office 365."


"I'm hopeful for more integrations with SAP JAM in the future."
"Microsoft should work on templating and provide some built-in templates so that the changes can automatically roll out to all the configured communities."
"Sometimes, we lose access to the solution for unknown reasons."
"The solution must be able to stream by itself, without integration, the same way that you are able to do it on Facebook Live, Instagram, etc. Streaming must be embedded into it."
"I would like to see a fancier user interface. That is one of the weak points of Yammer."
"If you are using other applications that are tough to integrate into the environment, that can cause limitations."
"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 be able to integrate with Microsoft products, such as Outlook."
"Users need to be in the Acting Directory to exploit the features."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"You need to pay for additional languages. It is somewhat expensive and the payment frequency can be annual or monthly, depending on the choice. There are no extra costs beyond the standard license and implementation fees."
"Compared to other products like Amazon, Yammer's pricing is fine."
"Yammer is a pretty cheap solution, and it's included in multiple subscriptions."
"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."
"The pricing is not bad."
"Its cost is included in the license bundle for Microsoft."
"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."

Yammer vs. SP Social in 2013
There are several discussions on SharePoint’s social strategy going on at the moment. I had some great discussions with my MVP mate Adis during Summit last week. Since #SPC12 almost every SharePoint addicted developer, it-pro, power user has reviewed Yammer. If you don’t know what Yammer is, here a…

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.

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.
