Opinion: Yammer Needs To Go

With all due respect, Microsoft really needs to cut and run from Yammer.

We bill into the hundreds of dollars per hour.

Yammer is such a bleed on time that it is costing us substantially to try and get any kind of use out of it.

We’ve all but abandoned the platform for all but necessary tasks.

We already wasted a couple of hours this week trying to get to our content downloads for our business needs.

We can’t imagine the impact to Microsoft employee productivity that Yammer has had. But, given our experience it has to be substantial.

Yammer needs to go. In our not so humble opinion it’s worse than a 1988 Yugo and it’s 3-6 month air cooled engine life.

Microsoft trying to fix it is no different than trying to fix a Yugo. In our opinion it’s good money after bad.
