Maybe You Tweet, But Will You Yammer?

Related to my earlier post about using Twitter as a workgroup collaboration tool, enterprise solutions are also emerging, tailored to the needs of a corporate environment. Yammer is one example. With much of the look and feel as well as the functionality of Twitter, it offers a simple way for companies (or any workgroup for that matter) to set up a microblogging culture that provide a basic social network, discussion board, and knowledge base. Separate groups can be established (think functional areas) and team members who are out of the office can have mobile access.

As group collaboration evolves, Yammer and similar applications offer one more interesting piece of the puzzle that is effective collaboration and knowledge sharing.
