Yammer and SharePoint Integration Roadmap Update Notes

I took some notes during Karuana’s talk at SPTechcon that I wanted to share.

While Karuana may not have intended to “announce” new planned features, I found a few of the details to be great clarifications that help provide additional details on the roadmaps I’ve seen publicly.  With a focus on SharePoint and Office365, these details aren’t all found on the success.yammer.com roadmap.

Office365 and Yammer Integration

1. Yammer to Office365 SkyDrive Pro – Uploading files into yammer puts them in your SkyDrive Pro with Yammer integration.

2. Yammer to Skype Integration – Video Chat

3. Office Web Apps in Yammer – View and Edit documents in Yammer

4. DL to Yammer group migration – Distribution list migration and support inside of yammer.

5. Social Calendars – Group + Events Calendar

6. App Strategy – right now Yammer has it’s own apps, and so does SharePoint

7. Social SDK – Support for an updated software development kit

8. Community Integration – SharePoint Communities and group integration

9. New User Experience – a more united Yammer and Office 365 unified experience

10. Document Conversations – Yammer as the conversation engine for documents

Microsoft has been marching against the Roadmap shared with the community.  Here are a few things that have been delivered recently.

1. Option to replace Newsfeed link with Yammer

2. Yammer App for SharePoint 2013

3. Guidance for On Premise Customers

Traveling is my passion. My quest to visit every country in the world while fully employed, raising a family and keeping my marriage healthy. I'm not just country hopping, but looking for the most immersive cultural experiences and capturing them as photos and videos. When not traveling, I'm living in paradise in sunny southern California working at Blizzard Entertainment, the world's most successful video game company in the world.
