The platform’s new addition includes social plug-ins that companies can use to connect their business applications and intranet to Yammer as well as add Yammer feeds to the tools. The aim of releasing the plug-ins is to enhance connectivity across the enterprise so that companies can extend Yammer’s social functionality across the applications that their employees are already using.
With an open API, Yammer extends its core functionality to custom built or existing applications. Yammer developers can now access resources that make it easier to integrate business applications with Yammer and also make Yammer feeds more flexible.
“The new tools we are introducing will allow companies and developers to incorporate Yammer into other applications in a more meaningful way that enables employees to readily share and discover information,” said David Sacks, Yammer CEO and founder, in a press release.
