Wow! Thank You For A Monumental Year!

By in News & Events on January 31, 2012

As the first month of 2012 draws to a close, we wanted to spend a few minutes reflecting upon 2011. Naturally, reflection is best done in a graphical format:

What a year it was! And we have you, our customers to thank for that. You are the ones bringing about change and radical transparency to your organizations. “Radical transparency” are exactly the words used by Craig Herkert, the CEO of SUPERVALU:

We are truly humbled to be a part of significant transformations that are sweeping organizations large and small and are proud to announce that these iconic companies have joined the ranks of our customers: 7-Eleven, Chevron, General Electric, LexisNexis, Penn State, Rakuten, Red Robin, Repsol, Southern Company, SUPERVALU and Tyco. In 2011, over 100,000 organizations established new Yammer networks, bringing the total to over 200,000 and the number of users to over 4 million. To support all this activity, we grew to more than 250 employees and expanded offices in San Francisco, London and Melbourne.

To ensure that our users continue meeting their business objectives and engaging in their Yammer networks, we’ve released some significant product milestones. To make content more social and discoverable, we launched Pages, Ticker and Files.  To help companies extend Yammer’s functionality, we launched the Activity Stream API and launched a few partner integrations. To better connect Yammer to other business applications, we launched Yammer Connect and Yammer Embed and updated our SharePoint integration. The Praise app allows users to stimulate engagement by openly celebrating achievements of coworkers.

We are also truly humbled by the recognition from analysts and and press. Thank you for including us in a few amazing awards in 2011:
