Congratulations Yammer

is the future of how companies will work and operate. By joining Microsoft, the power
house of the software industry, Yammer will reach millions of companies and help

Yammer’s Next Chapter

By: David Sacks | June 25, 2012

I am pleased to announce that Yammer has signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by
Microsoft.    After the close of the deal, Microsoft will continue to invest in Yammer’s stand-alone service, and the team will remain under my direction within the Microsoft’s Office Division.

When Adam Pisoni and I started Yammer, we set out to do something big.  When most people
thought social networking was for kids, we had a vision for how it could change the way we
work.  Four years ago, we started paddling out to catch the wave that we’re riding today.

With the backing of Microsoft, our aim is to massively accelerate our vision to change the way work gets done with software that is built for the enterprise and loved by users.

As a Yammer customer, you will continue to get a secure, private social network—delivered with the same focus on simplicity, innovation, and cross-platform experiences.  Over time, you’ll see more and more connections to SharePoint, Office365, Dynamics and Skype. Yammer’s expertise in empowering employees, driving voluntary adoption, and delivering rapid
innovation in the cloud will not only continue to power our stand-alone service, but also help shape the communication and collaboration experiences in Office 365.
