“Congrats, Yammer, for being the reason why Microsoft leads the pack in enterprise collaboration tools–but don’t rest on your laurels!”
This is not the first such jovial message, nor will it be the last.
Ordinarily I would have overlooked it, but today I thought: Why all this waiting for failure?
Yammer–and Microsoft, for that matter–are not about to rest on their so-called laurels. There are on-going enhancements calculated to keep ahead of customer needs, which is no small feat when these needs are ever-evolving themselves.
That’s what good enterprise collaboration products do. They acknowledge the state of flux we find ourselves in, and work to make it work for us, not against us.
And they listen. I love being able to talk to “Microsoft,” to the people, real people, within it. I love knowing that we’re being heard. It’s made a difference. I believe it will continue to.
So I’ll just be over here with my Yammer networks that have proven themselves to be helping my company and its customers be more and do more. This is a priceless window that both reflects our efforts and looks outward into how we’re making a real difference in this world.
Where will you be?
