A friend of mine works as a 'Customer Success Manager' at Yammer and he invited me along to the Yammer On Tour event in San Francisco on Tuesday this week. It was a really well organized event and there were a whole load of people in attendance for the Keynote, Product Announcements, Case Studies, and Customer Panel in the main room.
Yammer Founder and CEO, David Sacks (@davidsacks), kicked off the keynote with the product announcements which includes some exciting new features like Premium groups, Universal search, Activity Stream Aggregation, and Integration Partners.
This was followed up by a few brief case studies from Westfield and Super Saver and then the big case study from Deloitte. Finally, a rather impressive customer panel ended the event and then it was onwards for some socializing. I was happy to catch up with my friend Steve Nguyen and I was even more surprised to see some of the learning regulars there - Clark Quinn and Jay Cross. Thanks Yammer!
