Reviews of Enterprise Social Software From Real Users
Jive - “Colleagues are more informed, easier to find content, silo breaking…In the beginning the big bang approach brought some problems for the NON-“Facebook” users, finding it very difficult to understand the concept of linking, sharing, following. I would not go for a big bang and rather guide users via a slow pilot approach. ” Read the full Jive review.
Yammer vs. Sharepoint - “The huge difference between Facebook and Yammer is, Yammer is private…I like the idea of Yammer, but until Yammer is fluently integrated into SharePoint / SharePoint Online, it’s a hard way for us – SharePoint enthusiasts – to move customers, friends, co-workers on the Yammer train.” Read the comparison.
Chatter- “I wish an organization could create a company-wide Chatter that automatically follows everyone else in the company so that widespread access was guaranteed.My own experience and that of our clients is that internal email significantly reduces when organisations start to use Chatter. Communication that would have taken place by email now takes place by Chatter.
However because Chatter is a much more collaborative mechanism than email there’s an improvement in the quality of communication.” Read the review.
