Are Office 365 Groups Displacing Yammer?

by Volker Weber

At the Ignite event in Chicago earlier this month, I must have heard a dozen different arguments over whether Yammer was going away or not. Honestly, Microsoft needs to clean up the messaging a bit - which means making some decisions on how to position each. For me, the line of demarcation between Groups and Yammer is the corporate firewall: if I want to collaborate inside of the firewall, and specifically around projects and shared calendars, then Groups is the right place to work. But if I want to create an external community to collaborate with partners and customers, Yammer is my destination.

Office 365 Groups sind echt interessant und spannend - bis auf den Namen: Einfältig, mehrdeutig und unkreativ. Zudem gibt es nicht nur Überlapp mit Yammer, sondern auch mit anderen Konstrukten wie z.B. mit der Teamsite Mailbox oder Distribution Groups. Eine klare Linie erkenne ich da derzeit nicht.
