Yammer Connect Makes Enterprise Social & Connected

Posted on 8.28.2011

Social collaboration platform Yammer released a collection of plugins today dubbed Yammer Connect which enable companies and developers to connect their business applications or intranet with Yammer and add Yammer feeds to those tools.

The new plugins, which rely on Yammer's open Javascript API, allows users to bring their Yammer identity to other business applications (this is the Yammer Login Button) and an Embed feature which enables companies to embed Yammer feeds into their intranet or other apps including content management systems, intranets or CRM platforms. The Login Button and the Yammer JavaScript API are available immediately. Yammer Embed is currently in beta and will be available to all users later in Q3.

Yammer has been on a tear of late, being named a leader in enterprise mobile collaboration by Forester, adding Japan's online shopping powerhouse Rakuten to their client roster, and an announcement that Yammer users could connect automatically with CRM leader Salesforce.
