  • Rich, We either need to use this one, or remove it and use the four following slides.Core OOB functions in SP 2010: they called it “Communities”My SitesInterests and ExpertiseNotes / TaggingActivity FeedThis is an old product. 2010 was 2-3 years ago but remember– they were responding to drivers from 2 -3 years even before that.Social market changes RAPIDLY. Microsoft does not have rapid product cycles. That put SP 2010 behind the curve almost from the day it was released.Consumerization of IT: Users expect Facebook, LinkedIn. SP wasn’t that.Gaps:Microblogging

  • Rich – for this one, I am not sure which you prefer. Template or no template?This is an old product. 2010 was 2-3 years ago but remember– they were responding to drivers from 2 -3 years even before that.Social market changes RAPIDLY. HISTORICALLY, Microsoft does not have rapid product cycles. That put SP 2010 behind the curve almost from the day it was released.Consumerization of IT: Users expect Facebook, LinkedIn. SP wasn’t that.

  • A Yammer app will be made available in the SharePoint store for use in on-premise SharePoint 2013 deployments. “The Yammer app in the SharePoint Store will be a valuable addition, allowing customers to create connections between Yammer groups and on-premises SharePoint sites,” according to the SharePoint blog. Quick Analysis: This is great if you’re doing your social in the cloud with Yammer. Will be single UI on the glass. Not sure if it will tempt non-Yammer orgs to buy in.“The SSO, updated UX, seamless navigation, and Office Web App integration will all deepen the connections between your Yammer network and your on-premises SharePoint deployment.” Quick Analysis: In other words, this reads like if you’re doing Yammer in the cloud, it will eventually assume the look of Office 365 and certainly enable document collaboration in the same manner it does for SharePoint Online customers. I’m curious to see just how easy/difficult it will be to integrate SSO across Yammer and on-premise applications.Microsoft recommends the SharePoint newsfeed if you can’t do Yammer. Quick Analysis:This is acceptable for organizations just getting started on social, or not committed to social collaboration as a way to connect, capture and share knowledge, and communicate more effectively. The SharePoint newsfeed and core SharePoint 2013 product aren’t best-in-class social, though, and never will be. For those organizations, we still see a partner product like NewsGator Social Sites as the best option for a truly robust social environment.

  • Microsoft’s Perspective 44
  • Where Microsoft is GoingSee for yourself at the SharePoint blog…But here’s how we read it: 45
  • Where Microsoft is Going• Yammer + O365 = Cloud is King• Single Sign On across the Microsoft cloud• Social functionality enabling and complementing Office Web Apps• The vision of a productivity platform includes line of business applications – Microsoft’s CRM suite is first, easiest – Yammer connections (Salesforce, etc) won’t go away 46
  • On-Premise Implications• Yammer App in Office Store• Single Sign On between Yammer and your on-premise deployment• Microsoft recommends SharePoint 2013 Newsfeed – is it good enough? 47
  • On-Premise Options• Enable Yammer groups with Yammer App? – Yammer full experience will not be available– and that probably means apps (Badgeville, etc.)• SharePoint 2013 Newsfeed – Good enough for basic social collaboration – Analytics are lacking – Deeper social features (ideation, gamification, etc.) are lacking – Third-party products like NewsGator should remain a preferred option 48
