With SharePoint and Yammer integration roadmap advancing, and Microsoft’s advice is clear (Go Yammer!), customers and would-be customers of both products are recognizing overlaps in functionality and asking questions around how the two products could (and should) run side-by-side.
The inconvenient truth, at this stage, is that there is no one-size-fits-all answer. How organisations use the platforms side-by-side will depend on a range of unique factors, such as current adoption and levels of customization. Underpinning any strategy should be a solid understanding of the technical scope of each product, and where that scope overlaps.
