Announcing #SPJam on 5/21:  The Future of SharePoint, Yammer and Mobile in the Social Enterprise

With Microsoft’s recent announcement of the Yammer integration roadmap, several questions remain as to how to best move forward with your social enterprise strategy.  Many community members applaud the integration while others believe it's a mistake. Which solution will your business choose for enterprise social and how will you prepare? 

Social SharePoint Tweet Jam (#SPJam)

Be sure to join Forbes contributor Mark Fidelman, who will moderate #SPJam on Tuesday, May 21st at 12 pm ET.

We welcome the global SharePoint community to participate. All experience levels are welcome to connect with the experts that will be on hand to get the conversation rolling. The easiest way to join in is by following or including the #SPJam hashtag.

The Questions

Among the questions we’d like to explore:

  • Is Microsoft making the right moves in Enterprise Social Networking (ESN)? Why or why not?
  • Any holes in Microsoft’s social strategy? 
  • How can organization best take advantage of the new SharePoint solutions and tools?
  • How will Office 365 play into this new social shift?
  • How will these Microsoft/SharePoint developments affect the community?
  • How important is mobile in an enterprise social strategy?
  • Why/how should every business prepare for mobile as part of its enterprise social strategy?
